Google’s activities under scrutiny by US, Europe regulators

Technology
Google, the tech giant known universally for its search engine, also has fingers in a number of other pies, like online advertising, email messaging and video. That gives U.S. antitrust enforcers, who have reportedly evinced a new interest in pursuing competition charges against Google, lots to look at. Governments around the world are becoming increasingly unnerved by the power amassed by major technology companies — with the dominance of Google in search, Facebook in social networking and Amazon in e-commerce raising the sharpest concerns. In the most dramatic scenario, a case might be made for breaking the companies into smaller pieces.

Tiny Brazilian frogs glow in the dark — under a UV lamp

Science
March 29 (UPI) -- While studying the mating calls of pumpkin toadlets in the Brazilian rainforest, biologists realized the tiny frogs were deaf to their own songs. Further investigation revealed an alternate mode of communication, glow-in-the-dark bones. When scientists studied the miniature Brazilian frogs under an ultra-violet lamp, they found glowing patterns across the heads and backs of the tiny reptiles. "The fluorescent patterns are only visible to the human eye under a UV lamp," Sandra Goutte, an evolutionary biologist and researcher at New York University Abu Dhabi, said in a news release. "In nature, if they were visible to other animals, they could be used as intra-specific communication signals or as reinforcement of their aposematic coloration, warning potential predators of...
