Tiny ocean creatures can shred a plastic bag into 1.75 million pieces

Science
Dec. 8 (UPI) -- The ocean's miniature inhabitants can shred a small plastic bag -- the type used to hold groceries -- into 1.75 million microscopic fragments, according to a news study.When scientists from University of Plymouth in England fed a plastic bag to Orchestia gammarellus, a tiny species of amphipod abundant in the coastal waters of Northern Europe, they were surprised at the rate at which the trash was consumed and broken down.But while the amphipods broke down the plastic bag with tremendous speed and efficiency, they didn't exactly remove the trash from the environment. They simply turned one piece of plastic pollution into a lot of tiny pieces of plastic pollution -- 1.75 million microscopic fragments, to be exact.The findings -- detailed this week in the journal Marine Pollu...

Rigorous diet can put Type 2 diabetes into remission, study finds

Health
Some people with Type 2 diabetes were able to put the disease in remission without medication by following a rigorous diet plan, according to a study published today in the Lancet medical journal. "Our findings suggest that even if you have had Type 2 diabetes for six years, putting the disease into remission is feasible," Michael Lean, a professor from the University of Glasgow in Scotland who co-led the study, said in a statement. The researchers looked at 149 participants who have had Type 2 diabetes for up to six years and monitored them closely as they underwent a liquid diet that provided only 825 to 853 calories per day for three to five months. The participants were then reintroduced to solid food and maintained a structured diet until the end of the yearlong study. The researc...

The financial sector's version of the NASDAQ finally climbing over its dot-com bubble high looks like it's about to happen.

And the longer it takes for a sector to bottom out — trade in no-man's-land — and finally break out, the more powerful that trend will be.Why? Because everyone who would've, could've and should've exited the sector has already done so. The sellers who were just looking to get back to even are gone.No stock market sector was hit harder than financials during the last recession. Let's recall the names of companies that are no longer around but once were iconic American institutions: Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Wachovia (abso
