    Full Moon TONIGHT: Why does the moon look so big right now?
    Those looking up at the sky tonight will spot a larger moon casting a more intense glow than usual. The dazzling display follows a year of exceptional lunar activity, and it comes with a simple explanation. The moon’s orbit around the earth causes seven distinct phases that can make it appear both extraordinarily big and small. Scientists dub the largest moons “supermoons” and the last one of 2022 just passed. The Sturgeon Moon debuted earlier this week, appearing roughly 14…

    Electric cars: Majority of drivers say they won’t switch until they ‘absolutely have to’
    As part of wider plans to curb carbon emissions, the Government has set 2030 as the point beyond which it will no longer be possible to purchase a new petrol- or diesel-driven car. At present, only 3 percent of cars in the UK are fully electric, with another 2 percent being hybrids. The Government has taken steps to make electric vehicle adoption more enticing — such as by increasing investment in charging points and offering taxation-based incentives. However, the average…

    China poised to copy Putin’s squeeze over Taiwan and CRIPPLE the world with key metals ban
    Following top US democrat Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan despite China’s protestations, tensions between Beijing and Washington soared to new heights. Chinese premier Xi Jinping responded by hosting military drills with live fire all around the island, sparking fears that China could soon try to fulfil its promise to take back to state “by force if necessary”. But if a conflict were to break out between the US and China over Taiwan’s sovereignty, experts have warned it could have far-reaching…

    Monkeypox: WHO to rename disease over stigmatisation concerns — invites suggestions
    Monkeypox — a close relative of smallpox — is a viral disease typically contracted from animal bites or the consumption of improperly cooked meat, but that can spread from person-to-person by close contact. Initial symptoms of infection can include chills, fatigue, fever, and muscle aches — with more severe cases often presenting with a rash on the face and genitals that can spread elsewhere on the body before scabbing over. The virus is known to cause severe disease among certain…

    Antarctica warning: Ice shelves could be melting up to 40 percent faster than thought
    Antarctica’s ice shelves jut out from the ice sheet that covers the continent, and float on top of the Southern Ocean. Each several hundred metres thick, the shelves serve as a buffer, protecting the ice sheet on the mainland from flowing into the ocean and drastically raising global sea levels. However, climate change is warming both the atmosphere and the oceans, accelerating the rate at which the ice shelves are melting. The increasingly rapid melting of Antarctica’s ice shelves is…

    Antarctica’s ice shelves could be melting up to 40% FASTER than we thought
    Antarctica’s ice shelves could be melting up to 40 per cent faster than we thought due to coastal ocean currents, a new study warns. Scientists in California have created a new climate model that accounts for the impact of a coastal current called Antarctic Coastal Current (ACC). The researchers say this narrow current causes warm water to melt Antarctica’s ice shelves – floating platforms of ice around the Antarctic coastline. Their model suggests ice shelf melt rates are 20 to…

    Experts reveal why rivals are finally challenging Netflix’s dominance
    It has lost over a million subscribers, seen a slump in shares and now lost its title as the world’s biggest streaming giant.

    End of the world warning as humanity on the brink of ‘mass extinction’- new timeline
    A new study has found that while the large-scale biodiversity extinction taking place right now doesn’t qualify as a mass extinction just yet, the earth is rapidly barrelling towards the sixth such event. Since its formation about 4.5 billion years ago, the Earth has had five mass extinction, where about 75 percent of the planet’s life is wiped out over 2.8 million years, which is merely a blink of an eye on a cosmic scale. Of these catastrophic events, the…

    Bible breakthrough as experts pinpoint birthplace of St Peter near Jesus miracle site
    While excavating an early church in Israel, researchers found evidence that confirmed their belief that the sit was the birthplace of St Peter, the most prominent apostle in Christianity. In the Gospel according to St John, three of the apostles, Simon Peter, his brother St Andrew and a third apostle St Philip were born in a place known as Bethsaida. According to St Luke, it was near this site that Jesus performed the miracle of feeding 5,000 followers. In modern…

    Testosterone can make males cuddly and sociable, study shows
    Testosterone is commonly thought of as increasing sexual urges and aggression in men – but a new study shows it has a cuddly side too. In experiments, researchers injected testosterone into male gerbils to see how they’d behave with their partners. The injections fostered cuddling and ‘friendly behaviour’ and primed them for ‘positive social interactions’, they found. Testosterone influences activity of oxytocin – the so-called ‘cuddle’ or ‘love’ hormone that’s linked with social bonding, say the researchers, although they don’t…

    Energy bill shock: Brits pay TWICE more than French..as UK sends RECORD supplies to France
    EDF customers in the UK are paying nearly two-and-a-half times as much as for their energy bills as their counterparts in France. This came after French President Emmanual Macron imposed strict caps on price rises, forcing the state-owned energy company to sell its power at prices below the market rates. Since April this year, energy regulator Ofgem has set the household price cap at £1,971, while French families on regulated tariffs now face bills of around €950 (£803). Meanwhile, Mr…

    Archaeology breakthrough: Discovery of 400-year shipwreck stuns experts: ‘Time capsule’
    Maritime archaeologists in Northern Germany have found a ship’s wreckage at the bottom of a river that has shocking escaped decay for four centuries. They noted that the cargo vessel did not capsize; rather, it “sank almost standing.” They found that the ship had avoided disintegrating due to decay from ravenous shipworms, which was generally the fate of this ship’s contemporaries. In fact, the vessel still holds the barrels of lime that it was transporting for the stone building industry…
