  • Big Bang, Deflated? Universe May Have Had No Beginning

    If a new theory turns out to be true, the universe may not have started with a bang. In the new formulation, the universe was never a singularity, or an infinitely small and infinitely dense point of matter. "Our theory suggests that the age of the universe could be infinite," said study co-author Saurya Das, a theoretical physicist at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. The new concept could also explain what dark matter — the mysterious, invisible substance that makes up most of the matter in the universe — is actually made of, Das added.

  • Kia shooting for the top

    Since Kia set up a dedicated design studio in Europe the change has been remarkable and now its cars can compete in terms of looks and aesthetics as well as in terms of efficiency or load space with the best that the likes of Ford or VW have to offer. The Sportspace is anything but a crazily futuristic concept, sharing many elements with Kia's existing vehicle range, such as the tiger-nose grille, ice-cube-shaped LED daytime running lights and its efficient 2-liter turbocharged gasoline direction injection engine generates -- good for 250PS. Whether or not the brand can take such a significant step up remains to be seen, but the choice of a hybrid GT/wagon as a show car for this year's event also signals that ‘load-lugging' long-distance tourers are coming back into vogue.

  • Retreating ice in a warming Antarctica (21 photos)

    Yahoo News

    From the ground in this extreme northern part of Antarctica, spectacularly white and blinding ice seems to extend forever. What can't be seen is the battle raging thousands of feet (hundreds of meters) below to re-shape Earth. Water is eating away at the Antarctic ice, melting it where it hits the oceans. As the ice sheets slowly thaw, water pours into the sea — 130 billion tons of ice (118 billion metric tons) per year for the past decade, according to NASA satellite calculations. That's the weight of more than 356,000 Empire State Buildings, enough ice melt to fill more than 1.3 million Olympic swimming pools. And the melting is accelerating. In the worst case scenario, Antarctica's melt could push sea levels up 10 feet (3 meters) worldwide in a century or two, recurving heavily populated coastlines. Parts of Antarctica are melting so rapidly it has become "ground zero of global climate change without a doubt," said Harvard geophysicist Jerry Mitrovica.

  • Should You Pierce Your Baby's Ears? The Great Debate

    The topic of ear piercing and babies is like cilantro: You either love it or you hate it. On the flip side, some pierce because it’s part of a family’s cultural tradition—a popular practice in Latin America and Spain—or because they believe that earrings are cute or make it more obvious that their child is a girl. Almost 40 percent of parents have daughters with pierced ears, and nearly 50 percent pierced their child’s ears when they were under the age of two, according to a recent BabyCenter survey. The Research Infections from ear piercings are fairly common, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).
