Leading researchers have published a massive new study focused on soil carbon storage in the journal "Nature." This might sound like an innocuous -- or even strange -- subject to investigate, but the soil beneath our feet has a secret: it's a huge carbon sink. In fact, it's the biggest terrestrial carbon storage that we have. ...

Or Maybe Not  »  Depressed Single Mother
I'm starting to get worried now. Maybe I shouldn't go to this group. There's the lesbian mother's group, and they meet on a Saturday afternoon, which I can't do because I've no babysitter. But there's another one called Rainbow Families that I could do, because it's for the children rather than the adults. They go on outings and such. So I'd be taking The Boy with me.I know it'd be good for The Boy. I know I'm a bad mother for even considering not going. But I feel ill. I can't stop shaking! I want to hide away. I think ...

Australian School Boys Just Exposed Big Pharma’s Price Gouging  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
A group of Australian school boys have recreated Daraprim, a drug whose price was hiked 5,000 percent last year, for only a fraction of that cost.

All Yesterdays: A Cognitive Shift In How We Look At Dinosaurs  »  Moonlight Investigation
All Yesterdays will make you love dinosaurs anew. The way we view dinosaurs, and the way that artists have depicted them, has changed greatly over the last century (and even over the last decade). Though a child of the 1980s, my love for dinosaurs started with hand-me-down dinosaur books from the 1960s and 1970s which depicted swamp-dwelling brachiosaurs and bulky, slow-moving biped hunters. At 10 years old my view of dinosaurs was changed forever by Jurassic Park (the book and movie, I was a bit of a JP junkie). Fast moving, sleek, powerful dinosaurs were now all the rage ...

Flu Shots While Pregnant Don’t Pose Autism Risk  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
For years, members of the anti-vaccine movement have attacked the flu vaccine and attributed autism in children to pregnant women who receive the shot -- but there simply isn't a correlation. Now, a new study published in "JAMA Pediatrics" demonstrates that neither having flu nor the flu vaccine predicts a mother's likelihood of giving birth to a child who will later display autism spectrum behavior. ...

'The language of shirkers and scroungers?' Talking about illness, disability and coalition welfare reform - Disability & Society  »  Through Myself and Back Again
Picture: protesters at today's 'Hardest Hit' march, carrying a sign which is partly written in Braille. It reads "We're being ---- by the government." Someone has written a translation of the Braille word below it: "shafted". Photo copyright Lisa Egan.Yesterday's discussion on the BBC's You and Yours was about disability, cuts and welfare reform, and featured Where's the Benefit's own Bendy Girl. Some contributors' comments offered a clear example of how attitudes to disability haven't really changed much since Victorian times - if not before. Some academic research recently published has been talking about how these ...
