Analysis – There was always an element of tragedy in the first “Climategate” emails, as scientists were under pressure to tell a story that the physical evidence couldn’t support – and that the scientists were reluctant to acknowledge in public. The new email archive, already dubbed “Climategate 2.0”, is much larger than the first, and provides an abundance of context for those earlier changes.

Study shows why it’s hard to keep weight off

For years, studies of obesity have found that soon after fat people lost weight, their metabolism slowed and they experienced hormonal changes that increased their appetites. Scientists hypothesized that these biological changes could explain why most obese dieters quickly gained back much of what they had so painfully lost.

Japanese tsunami video recovered from a car wreck

Sun, 2011-09-11 09:24 by Hans-Georg

Yu Muroga was doing his job making deliveries when the 11-March-2011 earthquake hit in Japan. Unaware, like many people in the area, of how far inland the tsunami would travel, he continued to drive and do his job.

The HD camera mounted on his dashboard captured not only the earthquake, but also the moment he and several other drivers were suddenly engulfed in the flood.

He escaped from the vehicle seconds before it was crushed by other debris and sunk underwater.
