The gum is gotten from ocean growth, extricated and prepared under stringent conditions to deliver powders, squares or strips which might be used legitimately in cooking or heating applications.Realities About Agar-Agar Gum The business is probably going to be hampered by decreasing ocean growth supply because of confinements on harvests of Gelidium kelp in Morocco, that has made a worldwide deficiency of kelp for microbiological research facilities.The lack is to a great extent ascribed to recently upheld exchange confinements on the crude material, attributable to ecological concerns related to green growth depletion.The rivalry has additionally risen exponentially for filtered agar, inferable from its expanding request in the nourishment business, which has made a deficiency in the supply for microbiological applications in the ongoing past.Organizations are additionally endeavoring to develop ocean growth themselves, trying to streamline their acquisition and coordinate themselves into crude material creation along the esteem chain.The business additionally contributes to a great extent to work age in provincial regions, since the ocean growth is washed shorewards in spots, for example, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Chile, South Africa, and Japan.Various ladies laborers who don't partake in other network angling exercises effectively participate in ocean growth gathering and gathering, which is a noteworthy driver for its extension in these country locales.Medical advantages Agar has no calories, no carbs, no sugar, not fat and is stacked with fiber.Agar assimilates bile, and thusly, makes the body break down more cholesterol.An extraordinary substitute to gelatin Agar is the ideal substitute for customary gelatin.It's produced using a plant source instead of from a creature one.
How adult penguins fish and the body condition of their chicks are directly linked to local fish abundance, and could potentially inform fishery management, a new study has found.The researchers studied an endangered African penguin colony during a rare three-year closure of commercial fisheries around Robben Island, South Africa, and their findings are published today in the Journal of Applied Ecology.Fishing is often considered to be one of the biggest drivers of biodiversity loss in the ocean.It is so widespread that we lack an understanding of the 'natural' relationships between marine predators and their prey, and thus the extent to which predators are disrupted by competition from fisheries.This is a critical knowledge gap since many marine predators such as penguins are considered indicator species: a species whose success indicates the condition of their habitat.Dr Kate Campbell, who led the research at the University of Cape Town as part of her PhD project, said: "Understanding how African penguins forage to feed their chicks in their variable marine environment can help us identify conservation measures for these endangered populations."
We're diving into all the questions the series never answered here, so take note: You're entering Spoiler Town.Of course, if you're over asking questions and would rather get answers, you can read our full recap of the final episode which goes deep on the fate of the Iron Throne or head to our look at where every character finished up now the show is finally over.Why can't he just warg into Drogon and then dive as far down in the ocean as possible and leave him there?There's a few burning questions from the final episode that relate to the Dothraki, the horse-bound warriors that eat hearts, and seemed totally obliterated by the Battle of Winterfell.Remarkably, they still have a significant force and are complicit in Dany's torching of King's Landing.Jon better have thanked the Lord of Light for that save because the Dothraki just leaving him to rot in a cell is decidedly not Dothraki.
An ocean on Pluto long thought to have frozen over could actually just be hidden from view by an insulating cloud of gas, scientists say.The new research suggests there could be more oceans in the universe than previously thought and increases the possibility of extraterrestrial life.In July 2015, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew through Pluto's system and provided the first ever close-up images of the distant dwarf planet and its moons.After analyzing the images, scientists believed a subsurface ocean had to exist underneath an ice shell that thins at a basin roughly the size of Texas called Sputnik Planitia.The team, from Japan's Hokkaido University, the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokushima University, Osaka University, Kobe University, and the University of California in Santa Cruz believed the ocean should have frozen over millions of years ago.But the land formation shown in the images contradicted what was previously thought about the surface, as the inner surface of the ice shell that faces towards the ocean should have appeared flat.
Forget outer space or the deep ocean or even the quantum realm.Our bodies are a microcosm of its own, with many parts and processes we still don’t completely understand.Its most lethal weapon, the T cells, are also unfortunately also the cause of some life-threatening diseases.Doctors are now seeing, for the first time, the T-cells’ “safety test” training recorded on video which can hopefully inform them how to properly train these killers.Unfortunately, sometimes they go crazy and start attacking innocent cells as well.When this happens, the body develops autoimmune disorders like Type 1 diabetes.

Radioactive waste from Cold War nuclear weapons tests could be leaking into the Pacific Ocean.According to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, a concrete dome that was built on Runit Island in the late 1970s to contain waste from massive atomic bomb tests conducted after World War II could be leaking toxic sludge into the sea."The Pacific was victimized in the past as we all know," Guterres said, according to AFP, referring to nuclear explosions carried out by the United States and France in the region.The island nation was where 67 American nuclear weapons tests were conducted, which included the 1954 "Bravo" hydrogen bomb, the most powerful ever detonated by the U.S. and about 1,000 times bigger than the A-bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.In the Marshall Islands, many residents were forced to leave their land and thousands of others were exposed to radioactive fallout."I've just been with the president of the Marshall Islands [Hilda Heine], who is very worried because there is a risk of leaking of radioactive materials that are contained in a kind of coffin in the area," Guterres, who is touring the South Pacific to raise awareness about climate change, told AFP.

A 9-foot juvenile tiger shark that had its stomach cut open and its teeth and jaw apparently removed was photographed on a South Carolina beach this week.The mutilated shark was discovered on the beach of an undeveloped island north of Hilton Head Island by a sea turtle protection team, who sent the photo to state officials, The State reported.Bryan Frazier, a shark biologist at the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR), told the outlet the shark appeared to have weighed between 200 and 300 pounds.He also told the outlet the shark seemed to have been cut open by a human -- and it wasn’t done by scientists, he added.“They eviscerated it .... with a straight-line cut that wasn’t done by an animal,” Frazier told the outlet.“It’s really a strange thing to do.”

An incredible 99-million-year-old chunk of amber contains several trapped marine gastropods, including an extinct ammonite, according to a new paper.Amber is fossilised tree resin, and occasionally it preserves bits of plant and animal matter, like insects and bird feathers.Not only is it exciting to find the shell of an ammonite—an extinct mollusc usually only seen as an imprint in rock—but it also offers scientists another way to establish when the amber was created.The specimen came from an amber mine in northern Myanmar, a region famous for the diverse array of species found in its amber deposits.At least 40 forest-dwelling invertebrate arthropod species were trapped inside the chunk of hardened goo, including mites, spiders, millipedes, cockroaches, and wasps.It appeared to be a juvenile with a shell diameter of 12 millimetres (a little less than half an inch).
Plastic waste has a disastrous effect on marine wildlife, but unfortunately shoppers looking for quick, convenient solutions often fail to consider the impact of their actions while filling their carts.Based on that apparent consumer apathy toward the more than 1 million animals that die yearly due to plastic waste in the oceans, Dream Pack and Ecuadorian agency DDB Paradais wanted to do something to get people to see plastic waste differently.The campaign also comes as, according to a UN report, humans are contributing to species loss accelerating at a rate 10 or even hundreds of times higher than previous levels, leaving as many as one million species under threat of extinction.“The use of plastic is one of the biggest threats to the ecosystem,” Dream Pack CEO Johnny Abad said in a statement.“The whole world is rejecting foam packaging for its contaminating components, which is why we implement ecological solutions based on paper and technology that protect products and the environment.”So Paradais DDB found an attention-grabbing way to dramatize how single-use plastic leads to the death of marine life, utilizing a plastic item we’re all familiar with from our childhood to implore audiences to “Stop The Killing.”

While some of the details are still being worked out, it's generally agreed that the Moon formed when a Mars-sized body collided with the early Earth.Some of the debris put into orbit by the collision would then go on to condense into the Moon.But now, there are signals that the Chang’E-4 mission to the Moon's far side has finally spotted some of the Moon's mantle, which contains signs of its magma ocean.None of the rocks brought back, however, seem to have originated in the mantle, largely because plate tectonics doesn't exist on the Moon, so that process can't bring mantle material to the surface.This idea got a boost when the GRAIL mission mapped the lunar crust and found it was thinner than previously thought.In other words, the same dense minerals might end up condensing deep underneath the crater rather than some place where we could examine them.
Scientists in China have released an important first set of results from the Chang’e 4 lunar lander, revealing what appears to be material from the Moon’s mantle on its far side.China’s Chang’e 4 mission touched down on the Moon’s far side in January, a first for humanity, with a goal of answering some of these questions.These results provide the first observations from the Yutu 2 rover’s Visible and Near Infrared Spectrometer as it traverses the Moon’s South Pole-Aitken basin.The findings offer a window into both the ancient Moon as well as ancient Earth.Theories suggest the Moon’s mantle formed as lighter material floated to the surface of a “magma ocean” while heavier material sank, study authors Bin Liu and Chunlai Li from the Chinese Academy of Sciences told Gizmodo in an email.The Chang’e 4 lander successfully touched down on the moon on January 3 of this year, and both the lander and its rover began taking data.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wants to bring speedy broadband to the world, providing a megaconstellation of satellites that swarm around the Earth like a flock of internet-capable pigeons looking for some bread.OK, bad analogy, but for Musk to achieve his lofty goal, SpaceX will need to successfully launch 60 satellites currently tucked neatly away inside a Falcon 9 payload bay.After high winds delayed the mission Wednesday, SpaceX has again decided to stand down to "update satellite software and triple-check everything again."The next launch opportunity will be in "about a week."The Starlink mission is set to deliver those first 60 internet satellites to orbit when it finally launches.Provided everything goes as planned, the launch will pave the way for a satellite megaconstellation that will eventually contain over 12,000 of the miniature internet-providing boxes of future tech.
Even remote, uninhabited islands are still covered in trash, a new study has found.On the Cocos Keeling Islands, about 1,300 miles northwest of Australia, there are reportedly more than 400 million pieces of garbage, according to research by marine biologist Jennifer Lavers.Lavers, from Australia's University of Tasmania, published her findings in Scientific Reports on Thursday.MOUNT EVEREST IS COVERED IN GARBAGE AND DEAD BODIES: REPORT"You get to the point where you're feeling that not much is going to surprise you anymore and then something does ... and that something [on the Cocos Keeling Islands] was actually the amount of debris that was buried," Lavers, who has done similar studies on other remote islands, told NPR.The Cocos Keeling Islands, a group of 27 islands in the Indian Ocean, are mostly uninhabited except for two, according to a website for the islands.
She made an appointment to visit the couple once they were back at home.Using Samsung Gear VR headsets and Google Earth VR, she'd mapped out all the ports where the cruise would have stopped, giving the couple the 360-degree views of ocean, waterfalls and ice caves they might have had in person.Facebook last month released the $400 Oculus Quest, which CNET editor Scott Stein called the best thing he's tried this year.For example, using VR for hospice care -- as a way to bring a larger world to people who've found themselves limited to a room, or just a bed -- is beginning to catch on with care providers.She took off the goggles and she said, 'How is heaven going to be better than that?'In the four and a half months he's had VR out in the field with him (at this point, he doesn't leave home without it), Roby said most patients who try it want to use it again.
