Asian tick that clones itself could spread fast and far in the US, study says
16 December 2018 - The Asian longhorned tick most likely began invading the United States years ago. Now found in nine states, the tick may soon occupy a large swath of eastern North America as well as coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest, according to research published Thursday (13 December) in the Journal of Medical Entomology. 'This tick can bite humans, pets, farm animals, and wildlife,' said Ilia Rochlin, author of the study and an entomologist and researcher associated with the Rutgers University Center for Vector Biology.

Palm oil was supposed to help save the planet. Instead it unleashed a catastrophe.
16 December 2018 - The tropical rain forests of Indonesia, and in particular the peatland regions of Borneo, have large amounts of carbon trapped within their trees and soil. Slashing and burning the existing forests to make way for oil-palm cultivation had a perverse effect: It released more carbon. A lot more carbon. NASA researchers say the accelerated destruction of Borneo's forests contributed to the largest single-year global increase in carbon emissions in two millenniums, an explosion that transformed Indonesia into the world's fourth-largest source of such emissions. Instead of creating a clever technocratic fix to reduce American's carbon footprint, lawmakers had lit the fuse on a powerful carbon bomb ... (more)

Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that asbestos lurked in its Baby Powder
15 December 2018 - Facing thousands of lawsuits alleging that its talc caused cancer, J&J insists on the safety and purity of its iconic product. But internal documents examined by Reuters show that the company's powder was sometimes tainted with carcinogenic asbestos and that J&J kept that information from regulators and the public. (more)

Arctic posts second warmest year on record in 2018: U.S. NOAA
11 December 2018 - The Arctic had its second-hottest year on record in 2018, part of a warming trend that may be dramatically changing earth's weather patterns, according to a report released on Tuesday (11 December) by the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The study said the Arctic warming continues at about double the rate of the rest of the planet, and that the trend appears to be altering the shape and strength of the jet stream air current that influences weather in the Northern Hemisphere.

East Antarctica glacial stronghold melting as seas warm
11 December 2018 - NASA has detected ice retreat probably linked to ocean changes in region once thought stable. A group of glaciers spanning an eighth of the East Antarctica coastline are being melted by the warming seas, scientists have discovered. This Antarctic region stores a vast amount of ice, which, if lost, would in the long-term raise global sea level by tens of metres and drown coastal settlements around the world. Freezing temperatures meant the East Antarctica region was until recently considered largely stable but the research indicates that the area is being affected by climate change. (more)

US: A Chicago neighborhood battles endless flow of illegal guns
10 December 2018 - Chicago police regularly recover more illegal firearms than officials in larger New York and Los Angeles. Last year, the citywide haul was 7,932 firearms. The 2018 tally exceeds 8,300, and police say it could surpass 10,000 by year's end. Police seize an illegal weapon about once every hour, most connected to gangs on the South and West sides. Authorities cite two reasons for the heavy gun traffic: Penalties for carrying these firearms aren't considered a deterrent and, according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, suspects tell officers they 'would rather be caught by police with a gun ... than caught by a rival gang without one.'

Global carbon emissions set to rise further this year: study
5 December 2018 - Global carbon dioxide emissions are set to rise nearly 3 percent this year due to continued fossil fuel use, scientists said on Wednesday (5 December), dashing hopes that an increase in 2017 was temporary after two years of slowdown. World emissions grew by 1.6 percent last year and will increase even more this year due to the sustained use of coal, oil, and natural gas, an annual report by the Global Carbon Project showed, a group of 76 scientists in 15 countries.

More U.S. pregnant women using opioids and methamphetamines
4 December 2018 - A growing number of American pregnant women are using opioids and methamphetamines, and drug use is rising fastest among mothers in rural communities, a U.S. study suggests. By the end of the study period, the highest proportion of babies exposed to methamphetamines was in the rural West . . . [and] the highest proportion of babies exposed to opioids was in the rural Northeast . . . (more)

Decreased Crime Rate chart

When one per cent of the population of a city or town practices Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Programme, the crime rate significantly decreases over the long term. This is known as the Maharishi Effect, which is the phenomenon of the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of any community.

   
   
   

The collective practice of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme creates harmony and coherence throughout the environment, leading to reduced hostility and increased cooperation between nations.
