Bad timing: End to pot prosecutions comes too late for many

Bad timing: End to pot prosecutions comes too late for many

Health
They might be the unluckiest pot smokers in New York. Saying the government's war on marijuana has hit minorities too hard, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said last month that his office would stop prosecuting people for simple possession or public use of the drug as of Aug. 1. But that midsummer start date comes too late for the people still being dragged into court on the charge now. College student Allain Laporte, 24, was pinched by police in April for smoking marijuana on a bench in Union Square. "I had no idea there were two undercover detectives across from me who waited till I almost finished the joint," he said. "They came up to me, confiscated the joint, patted me down, put handcuffs on my wrists and brought me to the precinct. It was embarrassing." He was fingerpri...
For reef fish, tolerance for warming waters comes from their parents' DNA

For reef fish, tolerance for warming waters comes from their parents' DNA

Science
May 1 (UPI) -- New research suggests reef fish can inherit the genetic tools to adapt to rising water temperatures.In lab tests, scientists found the offspring of parents who were exposed to water temperatures increases were better able to adapt water temperatures increases than fish spawned by parents exposed to stable temperatures."When parents are exposed to an increase in water temperature, we found that their offspring improved their performance in these otherwise stressful conditions by selectively modifying their epigenome," Philip Munday, researcher with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University, said in a news release.Epigenetic changes in the DNA are biochemical changes that alter the expression of genes, causing certain genes to be turned on o...

Tiangong-1: Defunct China space lab comes down over South Pacific

Science
China's defunct Tiangong-1 space lab mostly broke up on re-entering the Earth's atmosphere above the South Pacific, Chinese and US reports say.It re-entered the atmosphere around 00:15 GMT on Monday, China's Manned Space Engineering Office said.Tiangong-1 was launched in 2011 to carry out docking and orbit experiments.It was part of China's efforts to build a manned space station by 2022, but stopped working in March 2016. What do we know about where it came down?The rather vague "above the South Pacific" is the line from space officials. US specialists at the Joint Force Space Component Command said they had used orbit analysis technology to confirm Tiangong-1's re-entry. Astronomer Jonathan McDowell, from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, tweeted that it appeared to have c...

Blue Planet II comes to iPlayer in 4K HDR

Technology
The BBC's Blue Planet II programme is to become its first TV series to be made available in 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) colour via its iPlayer catch-up service.All seven episodes of the marine-themed show are being made available to UK-based owners of select TVs.Until now, the BBC had only released programmes in this format via ultra-high definition (UHD) Blu-ray discs.Netflix and Amazon already stream some of their shows in 4K and HDR.The BBC suggested that owners of compatible screens should enjoy "the spectacular animals, vibrant coral reefs and deep blue oceans" as never before.More vividThe term 4K refers to the fact an image has four times as many pixels as a 1080p HD one, meaning it should appear more detailed and crisp.However, to appreciate this, viewers need to be ...
