(Government of Queensland, Australia, Department of Environmental and Heritage Protection)An Australian rodent that lived near the Great Barrier Reef has been officially declared extinct, making it the first known mammal killed off by climate change, according to researchers.The Bramble Cay melomys, a rat-like rodent known to live on a small northern island at the edge of the Torres Strait Islands in Queensland, was relocated from the government's "endangered" list to its "extinct" list, the Australian Department of the Environment and Energy announced Monday.Researchers, in a 2016 report released on the critter, said they confirmed that melomys on Bramble Cay were extinct after a "survey in March 2014 failed to detect the species."Fishermen who visited the area suggested to scientists that the last known sighting of the animal was in late 2009.The main factor responsible in the mammal's extinction, "was almost certainly ocean inundation of the low-lying cay, very likely on multiple occasions, during the last decade, causing dramatic habitat loss and perhaps also direct mortality of individuals," researchers said.
Now it is official: A mammalian species thought to have been eradicated as a result of climate change caused by man.The case of the small rodent Melomys rubicola or Bramble Cay-the rat – who lived on a small sandy island in the Great barrier reef between Australia and Papua New Guinea, but not seen in a decade.On Tuesday announced Australia's miljödepartement that the animal is officially moved to the list of extinct animals.the News was expected since researchers have not found any trace of Melomys rubicola during a survey in 2014 whose purpose was to find the animal.Studies indicate that a rise in sea level caused by climate change washed away the rodents from our planet for good.
Plants are master chemists, and Michigan State University researchers have unlocked their secret of producing specialized metabolites.Some metabolites attract pollinators while others repel pests.It's because daffodils have metabolites to fend off the critters who'd dine on them.The results could potentially lead to improved plants but also to the development of plant-based pharmaceuticals and environmentally safe pesticides, said Shin-Han Shiu, an MSU plant computational biologist."Plants are amazing - they are their own mini factories, and we wanted to recreate what they do in a lab to produce synthetic chemicals to make drugs, disease-resistant crops and even artificial flavors," Shiu said.Taking a machine-learning approach, an interdisciplinary team of biochemists and computational biologists created a model that looked at more than 30,000 genes in Arabidopsis thaliana, a small flowering plant that is called the "lab rat of plant science."
CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel and several Chicago aldermen want to crack down on the amount of dog poop on lawns across the city.They are proposing a new ordinance that calls on property owners to clean their lots daily to keep them free of feces, or faces fines of $50-$500.A statement from the proposed ordinance reads:“Feces from pets deposited upon any private property must be collected and removed daily by the property’s owner or agent.”The ordinance also states that the property owner properly bag and place the feces in “a city-issued or other rodent-resistant lidded waste container.”The aldermen hope this will help reduce the amount of feces, and reduce the number of rats that feed on the feces.
Yes, you read that title correctly: Neuroscience researchers (and presumably Bond villains in training) from Zhejiang University, China, have created a method that allows humans to control the movements of rats using a technology called a brain-brain interface.Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) have been around for a while now, allowing people to convey instructions to a computer using only their minds.These generally work by taking an electroencephalogram (EEG) cap which picks up neural activity from inside the brain and then training a computer system to recognize the pattern of simple thoughts for a given individual.These patterns can then be identified by the computer and converted into an action of some kind.BCIs work best when the person is thinking about binary choices like left or right, such as when navigating.Another style of interface that works well is when a person imagines making a movement, as the neural activity of imagined motor actions is fairly similar to the activity seen when those movements are performed for real.
If you have discovered rats or mice at home, it is one of the most common types of infestations in Singapore.Whether it is residential or commercial properties, both are vulnerable to rat infestation.The most effective way of dealing with rodents is to prevent them from entering the property.Rats and mice not only create nuisance but also cause damage to property and not to forget, they may carry harmful diseases as well.You can identify their presence by seeing the rodent droppings near food source or shredded fabric and pieces of paper.Faeces and urine spots are also signs of rodent infestations and this calls for measures that aid with rodent control in Singapore.You can track their activity and movement with the help of rodent sensors but there are also other precautions you can take.You need to remove the attractions from your home such as:- Food items in unsealed containers- Pet food and water left overnight- Fruits and vegetables left in the open- Leakages in pipes near basins- Open dustbins and trash containersCommon rodent access points- Holes near cabinets and closets- Cracked foundations in the basement, attic, and other old structures- Holes near door and windows- Missing screens in vents and small spaces under buildingsGuidelines for maintaining a rodent-free homePreventSeal the entry points so that rodents can’t find a way inside your own.Remove the rodent attractions such as food and clutter, keeping the space clean.IdentifyYou need to look for signs of a rat infestation such as droppings, faeces, urine, musty smell, damage to wires, etc.You also need to look for torn paper and fabrics.TreatYou try to track the rodent activities by using rodent sensors.
“A broader trend toward malware infections focused on long-term PERSISTENCE and ongoing exploitation of infected systems”The number of RATs (Remote Access Trojans) infecting machines globally doubled each quarter of 2018, scratching their way from comprising just 0.04 percent of observed malware in 2017 to over eight percent of all malicious payloads in Q4 of 2018.This is according to a threat report from California-based cybersecurity company Proofpoint, which analysed the threat landscape in 2018; the rise in RATs, along with a surge in malicious email attacks, stand out as key malware dynamics in the report.Many RATs are used to initiate downloads for other tools, however some are used to take complete control of a system, allowing a hacker to remove all the valuable data they want while keeping the real user in the dark about the compromise.Proofpoint note that threat group TA505, which is one of the most active they track, has been spreading RAT malware FLAWEDAMMYY, FLAWEDGRACE and RMS RAT at an increased rate since March 2018.As of yet there is no clear reason why the use of RATs has seen an increase over the last year, however as Proofpoint note in their report: “Threat actors follow the money, meaning that they would not be increasing distribution of RATs without achieving a return on their investments in malware, command and control, and sending infrastructure.”
The image of a lab rat is an iconic symbol of scientific research, and for good reason: These rodents are remarkably good stand-ins for human subjects because of how closely their physiology and genetic make-up resemble ours.Because of this, mice and rats are used to study everything from cancer to diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease.However, despite their tried-and-true use as animal models, there’s something about these rodents that puzzles scientists: What is all the squeaking about?Up until now, researchers have relied heavily on ambiguous physical cues—such as rats pressing a lever to receive a dose of an addictive substance—or time-consuming manual analysis of rodent chatter to try to understand what drives their behaviour during trials.Both of these methods are vulnerable to human error and misinterpretation.Similar to how a self-driving car might take in and evaluate visual data from the road in front of it, DeepSqueak transforms audio recordings of rodent calls into sonogram images and then uses machine vision to analyse them.
My brain knew this was fake, but the mother in me screamed: "Nooooooo kill me oh my god noooooo!"But the third, the disquieting rat experiment A Jester's Tale, was made outside Magic Leap's auspices."Generally a lot of the work that comes out in AR and VR ... is really clean and nice and pretty and smooth and meant for everyone to enjoy," Asad J. Malik, the creator of A Jester's Tale, said in an interview during the festival last month.We're trying to go rogue with AR."But just as the creators of YouTube couldn't have predicted the rise of Let's Play, ASMR videos or any of the scores of bizarre genres there, new technologies like Magic Leap need to put tech in the hands of outside creators to uncover new kinds of experiences.The idea is to get Magic Leap first into the hands of people already skilled at conjuring up the kind of experiences and content that might eventually lure in the masses.
The term “computer virus” calls to mind imagery of pathogenic creepy-crawlies bringing down a device’s operating system, their flagella wriggling as they multiply into hordes that infiltrate its chips and wires.And while it’s true that our computers can be infected with literal biological bacteria like staphylococci, per Science Illustrated, the threat of malicious codes and programs intent on corrupting data and files looms far larger: According to a recent study from the University of Maryland’s Clark School of Engineering, attacks on computers with internet access is virtually ceaseless, with an incident occurring every 39 seconds on average, affecting a third of Americans every year.Unfortunately, cyber crimes don’t discriminate based on a device’s make or age.Just recently, a Trojan Rat infested the popular software Handbrake, allowing cyber criminals to take complete control over affected devices to steal passwords, credit card information, and other important personal details.When it comes to protecting your devices, proactivity is vital, which is why it’s worth checking out TotalAV’s award-winning antivirus protection.Compatible with both Apple and PC devices, TotalAV covers all the bases when it comes to cybersecurity while improving your computer’s performance.

There’s a chronic shortage of available transplant organs, which leads to the unnecessary death of thousands of people each year.To help alleviate this situation, medical researchers and scientists are working hard to find other ways of sourcing human-compatible organs, whether by bio-printing them in a lab or figuring out ways to repurpose organs from other animals.While there is still a ways to go for both these approaches, researchers from Japan’s National Institute for Physiological Sciences recently made a breakthrough, which could have enormous implications for future kidney transplants.In a pioneering study, they demonstrated that it is possible to grow functional mouse kidneys inside rats using donor stem cells.Initial attempts to do this had failed, since rat stem cells don’t differentiate into the two main cell types required for forming kidneys.However, the researchers got around this by injecting mouse stem cells into rat blastocysts, the cell clusters formed after an egg is fertilized.
Advances in stem cell research offer hope for treatments that could help patients regrow heart muscle tissue after heart attacks, a key to achieving more complete recovery.Scientists today report success in creating functional blood vessels in vitro for hearts of rats that had sustained a heart attack.The journal Nature Communications published the paper, whose lead authors are Ying Zheng and Charles Murry of the UW Medicine Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine in Seattle."To our knowledge, this is the first demonstration that building organized blood vessels with perfusion outside the body leads to improved integration with host blood vessels and better tissue blood flow," said Zheng, a University of Washington associate professor of bioengineering.The scientists set out to show that by growing stem cell-derived heart tissue in a petri dish, with attention to blood vessels' construction, they could improve the tissue's incorporation with existing heart vessels."I come from a mechanical background," Zheng continued.
A Chinese research team has developed the ability to mind control a rodent, building a wireless brain-to-brain system that enables a human to move the "rat cyborg" through a maze.The research, published in Nature's Scientific Reports on Feb. 4, details a brain-to-brain interface (BBI) that connects a human brain to a computer, which then decodes and stimulates the rat brain to move.The researchers detail their methodology in a delightful section of the published paper called "rat cyborg preparation", explaining how they implanted electrodes in two sections of the rat brain.The researchers then "trained" the rats by using the electrodes to produce certain movements, which they wirelessly sent to the rat's brain via a tiny rat-backpack containing the stimulator.The human controller was fitted with a device known as an electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure brain signals.Using the EEG to measure the human brain signal means the researchers don't have to directly connect electrodes to a human brain -- that's a good thing, but it makes the signal weaker.
If you’re trying to get rats off an island without damaging the native animals or plants, what’s the best way to go about it?If you’re anything like the brains behind a recent initiative on two islands in Ecuador’s Galapagos archipelago, the answer is simple: Use drones that dispense rat poison.The North Seymour region in question had been rat-free for more than a decade when two species of rat were detected last year.These rats eat the eggs and babies of local seabirds, as well as damage plants and trees by gnawing on them and eating their seeds.Starting January 12, a team representing Galapagos National Park Directorate and Island Conservation used two six-rotor drone copters to spread bait laced with rat poison around the islands.Previously, this has been achieved using helicopters, but drones were concluded to be a cheaper method of carrying out the task.
On January 30, the US Department of Justice announced that it, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations were engaged in a campaign to "map and further disrupt" a botnet tied to North Korean intelligence activities detailed in an indictment unsealed last September.Search warrants obtained by the FBI and AFOSI allowed the agencies to essentially join the botnet, creating servers that mimicked the beacons of the malware."While the Joanap botnet was identified years ago and can be defeated with antivirus software," said United States Attorney Nick Hanna, "we identified numerous unprotected computers that hosted the malware underlying the botnet.The search warrants and court orders announced today as part of our efforts to eradicate this botnet are just one of the many tools we will use to prevent cybercriminals from using botnets to stage damaging computer intrusions.”US indicts North Korean agent for WannaCry, Sony attacks [Updated]Joanap is a remote access tool (RAT) identified as part of "Hidden Cobra", the Department of Homeland Security designator for the North Korean hacking operation also known as the Lazarus Group.
Facebook, you may have heard, had a year riddled with scandals, data breaches, dwindling user trust, slowing growth, scrutiny from regulators, and plummeting morale among its own staff.Clearly the social behemoth needs a major comeback.But according to a report in the New York Times, Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to link messaging capability between Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram – three of its essentially balkanized services – already has workers confused and angry.More centralised control over these mostly independent apps was already presaged by last year’s abrupt exits of Kevin Systrom, Mike Krieger, Brian Acton and Jan Koum, the founder pairs of Instagram and Whatsapp, respectively.All four were reported to have butted heads with Zuckerberg’s directives, which we now know involves stripping those apps of some of their autonomy.Reportedly they’ll still operate as standalone products, albeit with a backend and social graph that’s interoperable, a change which, as Mike Isaac put it, “requires thousands of Facebook employees to reconfigure how WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger function at their most basic levels.” Welcome to the rat king era of social media.
A protein-secreting device implanted into the hippocampus of epileptic rats reduces seizures by 93 percent in three months, finds preclinical research published in JNeurosci.These results support ongoing development of this technology and its potential translation into a new treatment for epilepsy.Motivated by an unmet need for effective and well-tolerated epilepsy therapies, Giovanna Paolone and colleagues of the University of Ferrara, Italy and of Gloriana Therapeutics, Inc. (Providence, RI) investigated the effects of the Gloriana targeted cellular delivery system for glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) -- a protein recent research suggests may help suppress epileptic activity.In addition to quickly and progressively reducing seizures in male rats -- by 75 percent within two weeks -- the researchers found their device improved rats' anxiety-like symptoms and their performance on an object recognition task, indicating improvement in cognition.The treatment also corrected abnormalities in brain anatomy associated with epilepsy.These effects persisted even after the device was removed, indicating this approach may modify the disease progression.
You would just walk into the arcade one day and there was a new cabinet sitting there, maybe back in a corner, like a secret, or maybe in the center of the floor, already gathering a crowd.It seems rare now to be hit with the unexpected—dodging spoilers is practically a contact sport.Street Fighter II, Fatal Fury, World Heroes—we dropped our quarters into every game we could get our hands on.The rumble of the subwoofer was the first clue there was something new.We'd seen digitized characters before, in games like Pit Fighter, but those were choppy and stiff.Mortal Kombat's characters had idle animations, they shot electricity, and there was a sea of bobbing, bald-headed monks watching you fight.
