Asian, Bad, and Facts: Japanese honeybees kill hornets by enclosinig them in a ball of bees, and then shaking so fast and generating so much heat that they cook the hornet at 115°F Photo courtesy of Takahashi/wikipedia @factsweird <p><a href="http://therothwoman.tumblr.com/post/165708334341/mindblowingfactz-european-honeybees-have-no" class="tumblr_blog">therothwoman</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://weird-facts.org/post/165693362252/european-honeybees-have-no-innate-defense-against" class="tumblr_blog">mindblowingfactz</a>:</p><blockquote><p>European honeybees have no innate defense against the hornets, which can rapidly destroy their colonies. Although a handful of Asian giant hornets can easily defeat the uncoordinated defenses of a honeybee colony, the Japanese honeybee has an effective strategy. When a hornet scout locates and approaches a Japanese honeybee hive, she emits specific pheromonal hunting signals. When the Japanese honeybees detect these pheromones, a hundred or so gather near the entrance of the nest and set up a trap, keeping the entrance open. This permits the hornet to enter the hive. As the hornet enters, a mob of hundreds of bees surrounds it in a ball, completely covering it and preventing it from reacting effectively. The bees violently vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold conditions. This raises the temperature in the ball to the critical temperature of 46 °C (115 °F). In addition, the exertions of the honeybees raise the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the ball. At that concentration of CO2, they can tolerate up to 50 °C (122 °F), but the hornet cannot survive the combination of high a temperature and high carbon dioxide level. Some bees do die along with the intruder, much as happens when they attack other intruders with their stings, but by killing the hornet scout, they prevent it from summoning reinforcements that would wipe out the entire colony.</p></blockquote> <p>Bad and Naughty Hornets will be cooked in the <b><i>Ḅ̖͔͓̤̜̘̀͂ͮ͌͊̂ ͓̥̥̒ͭ̔̒Ẹ͎͎̫̠̞ͩ͒ ̲̥̦̲͒̏Ë̘́̏̾ͮ̒ ͉̬̦̹̳̜͈̋͗̀̇̍̌ ̱͕̱̤̣̟̓̽ͧ ̗̗̲ͮ͒ͧ͂̇ ̯̔͊͑͆̈Ŏ͔̝̔͌͒̓ ̞͈̩V̪͕̲̳̥̖ͩ ̙̺̲̫ͥ̔̽̏̓ͨͬȄ̹͈̦ ̼͓̻͉̫̖́̄̑͌ͣͤ̄N̜̝̖̠̬ͨͮ̾</i></b><br/></p></blockquote>

Memes, 🤖, and Ems: NASA procura voluntarios que queiram ficar 30 dias na cama por 18 mil dolares. TNSTAGRAM.COM/UNIVERSOTECA Pode ler, ver filmes, trabalhar, jogar, mas tem de fazer isso tudo enquanto estiver deitado, quase imobilizado, durante 30 dias. A NASA está à procura de 12 voluntários para ingressarem no projeto na Alemanha. De todos os desafios que os astronautas encontram no ambiente espacial, a micro-gravidade provou ser uma das mais difíceis de imitar em ambiente experimental. Investigadores e engenheiros da NASA estão a estudar o descanso prolongado em cama, numa posição inclinada, com a cabeça deitada seis graus em relação ao resto do corpo. A atmosfera nos quartos vai estar definida para 0,5% de dióxido de carbono, para perceberem se os problemas de visão que afetam os astronautas no espaço estão relacionado com os níveis de CO2. “Os voluntários no estudo vão poder olhar para esta experiência como uma forma de ajudar”, disse Roni Cromwell, um dos cientista do estudo. “Podem pensar que o que fizeram, eventualmente, vai ajudar os astronautas a manter a saúde no espaço”, citado pela Forbes. Depois dos 30 dias de “descanso” segue-se a recuperação. Os músculos entram em atrofia depois um período prolongado sem serem utilizados e por isso é preciso que os voluntários sejam acompanhados por especialistas, fazendo variados exercícios físicos. Os voluntários terão uma remuneração de 18 mil dólares (13.320 euros). Fontes: Forbes - Jornal Economico

Memes, Tablet, and Twins: HH NEW Ford has revealed the ST version of the new Fiesta, and it's packing a 197bhp 1.5-litre inline-three cylinder engine Via @carthrottlenews - Let’s get the big piece of news out of the way: As was first rumoured a little while ago, the ST has indeed dropped a cylinder and a little bit of displacement, switching to a 1.5-litre three-pot. - It’s presumably derived from the existing 1.5-litre Ecoboost unit, although Ford describes it as an “all-new” engine. It’s been given a new turbocharger with an “optimised” turbine design to reduce lag, plus “Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing. It’s good for 197bhp, and 214lb ft of torque. - Both of those figures are the same as what the outgoing car achieved when its ‘overboost’ function kicked in. The new car will do 0-62mph in an “anticipated’ 6.7 seconds, although there’s no word on top speed just yet. There isn’t an MPG figure available right now either, but Ford is expecting CO2 emissions of around 114g-km. - The car gets a torque vectoring by braking system just like the old one, plus three driving modes. The ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ modes each alter the steering, throttle response and traction-stability controls to varying degrees. Stick it in ‘Track’ mode and the traction control goes entirely, with the ESP set to ‘wide slip’ mode. Or if you’d prefer, you can switch off ESP completely. - On the inside it’s a sportified version of the Fiesta cabin we’ve already seen, which means a far plusher space than we’ve been used to seeing from Ford’s ubiquitous supermini. - The ‘Sync 3’ system is present on a floating tablet-style setup, which should prove to be much less frustrating than the clunky old infotainment, and keeping your back and buttocks very happy will be a pair of Recaro bucket seats. - In the cabin you’ll also be - I’m afraid to say - treated to some ‘Electronic Sound Enhancement’, but this does at least work in tandem with an active exhaust valve. - Want one? You’ll be waiting for a little while I’m afraid, with Ford gunning for an early 2018 launch for the car in both three and five-door forms. The outgoing ST was - and probably still is - pound-for-pound the best new performance car around, so this new one should be worth the wait.

Bmw, Honda, and Memes: H NEWS McLaren Announces Mystery New Engine Tech Programme With Help From BMW Via @carthrottlenews - Check out this cryptic announcement from McLaren, involving a totally unexpected partnership with BMW. - In a press release the company has confirmed that it’s working on “new combustion technology that will deliver a higher output per capacity than currently possible.” - The message continues: “It also aims to further facilitate CO2 reductions while simultaneously increasing engine output. - “The technology is destined for future McLaren engines.” - The Woking-based supercar maker is leading a team containing the guys from Munich, engineering wizards Ricardo, casting specialists Grainger and Worrall, Lentus Composites and the University of Bath (obviously). - Speculation as to what the project could entail includes a variable-displacement engine, like those being developed by Infiniti and Honda. It could also feasibly be a camless system like the Koenigsegg Freevalve. Hell, it could be a 2,500bhp V20 that spits out jelly babies and Amazon vouchers, for all we know. - It steers clear of any mention of hybrid assistance, though, and it would have been natural to say so if it was going to feature it, so the smart early money is on the project being a next-generation turbocharged engine to replace the monumental 3.8-litre V8 in the current Sports and Super Series ranges. - This is clearly a big deal, with funding from the UK government and what seems to be a deal to make the technology available to other UK car makers in the future. The assumption has to be that BMW will benefit from the end results, too. We’ll be keeping a close eye on it.

Memes, Amsterdam, and Denmark: All electric trains in the Netherlands are now 1oo% wind-powered !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IHI!!!!!! ns ni groemetre in @seek the trut ScienceAlert.com- The Netherland's national railway company, NS, has announced that all of its electric passenger trains are now 100 percent powered by wind energy. NS first announced their target for a wind-powered train fleet back in 2015, but they've hit their target a year earlier than planned - way ahead of their 2018 goal. "Since 1 January, 100 percent of our trains are running on windenergy," said NS spokesman, Ton Boon, in a press release sent to the AFP. "So we in fact reached our goal a year earlier than planned." In 2015, NS partnered with Dutch electricity company Eneco. Their goal was getting NS's entire electric train fleet wind-powered by January 2018. Half of the fleet was already wind-powered, but in order to get the entire system away from fossil fuels, they needed to either build more local wind farms or buy in wind energy from neighbouring countries, such as Denmark. But thanks to an increase in the number of wind farms around the country, and off the coast of the Netherlands, the collaboration has achieved that target early. According to a joint NS and Eneco website, around 600,000 passengers every day are now travelling thanks to wind energy. The Dutch have a long history with wind energy, and have been using windmills to drain water and mill grain since the 17th and 18th centuries. But now the nation is using more sophisticated wind turbines to generate electricity. According to Eneco and NS, one windmill running for an hour can power a train for around 200 km (120 miles). And although trains are usually thought of as pretty environmentally friendly compared to fuel-heavy cars, the NS fleet annually consumes 1.2 billion kWh of wind energy from Eneco - equivalent to the amount of electricity consumed by all households in Amsterdam in a year. "Mobility is responsible for 20 percent of CO2 emissions in the Netherlands, and if we want to keep travelling, it is important that we do this without burdening the environment with CO2 and particulate matter," Eneco account manager Michel Kerkhof told Railway Technology back in 2015. renewableenergy

Memes, Nasa, and El Nino: Aaedia Nisso? 2016 foi o ano mais quente ja registrado ACREDITANIsso f/ACREDITANISS00FICIAL @AcreditaNisso? De acordo com um relatório conjunto feito pela NASA, 2016 foi oficialmente o ano mais quente já registrado na história. A Terra tem visto 3 anos seguidos de altas temperaturas sem precedentes. As conclusões do relatório conjunto foram também confirmadas pelo Escritório de Meteorologia do Reino Unido. Desde 2001, o planeta viu 16 dos seus 17 anos mais quentes registrados. 2015 também foi o ano mais quente já registrado. Assim como 2014. E esses 3 anos de temperaturas crescentes significam q o planeta agora é cerca de 1,1 graus Celsius mais quente do q era no final do século XIX. Embora o fenômeno ElNiño tenha contribuído para o efeito de aquecimento no final de 2015 e início de 2016, os pesquisadores reiteraram q os efeitos a longo prazo das emissões de CO2 e das emissões de gases de efeito estufa são o principal fator para o aumento das temperaturas. Nem todas as regiões da Terra estabeleceram um recorde em 2016 – os 48 estados mais baixos dos EUA tiveram seu segundo ano mais quente, por exemplo. Mas as temperaturas no Ártico foram especialmente ruins, atingindo 20 a 30 graus Fahrenheit acima da média e levando aos menores níveis de gelo marinho já registrados. Com os efeitos do El Niño passando no final do ano de 2016, os cientistas esperam q 2017 se refresque um pouco. Mas os pesquisadores estão preocupados de q os efeitos de aquecimento só acelerem nos próximos anos. Um relatório publicado na revista científica Nature por especialistas no ano passado, por exemplo, considera q a janela para limitar o aquecimento global a menos de 1,5 graus Celsius parece já ter se fechado, o q significa q não temos mais como parar uma mudança climática perigosa. As previsões ficam ainda mais sombrias tendo em vista q o novo presidente eleito dos EUA, Donald Trump, é um negador da mudança climática, o q coloca em risco todos os avanços feitos recentemente em acordos climáticos pelo ex-presidente Barack Obama.
