UFO Chicago South Side April 3, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- An unusual sight was reported by some residents on Chicago's South Side. They say something in the sky looked like UFOs were flying over Chicago. Nicole Dragozetich was driving down 35th Street and Western at approximately 8 pm Saturday when she noticed at least a dozen people stopped in their tracks, staring at the sky. She used her cell phone to shoot video of what everyone was watching. Dragozetich says several lights were flying together, traveling in a straight line at first, and then making patterns. The lights were orange, and they were blinking together at the same time. ABC7 meteorologist Mark Bishop says no unusual weather occurrences have been reported by the National Weather Service.
Measuring and Interpreting Fluxes of Trace Gases Across Local and Global Networks This is a Research Exchange Seminar Dennis Baldocchi, Professor of Biometeorology, UC Berkeley Event Location: UC Berkeley (CITRIS@Berkeley, CITRIS Headquarters) Sponsor: CITRIS (Ctr for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society), UC Berkeley (Headquarters) Abstract: The engineering community has made great advances over the past decade developing wireless sensor networks to measure the environment across complex landscapes. Yet, the micrometeorological community has been slow to adopt this new and novel technology in their research domain. This lecture covers many of the issues and complications associated with applying wireless networks in natural ecosystems. Topics covered include the need for power, calibration, representative exposure and the need to measure mass and energy fluxes instead of state variables. Suggestions and ideas for future collaboration and interactions are presented.
How The Weather Effects You You've probably uttered it on a hot day -- "This heat is driving me crazy!" Well, there's a lot of truth to that statement. Dr. Dennis Driscoll is a bio-meteorologist, and he says that the weather can affect your personality. For example, strong winds tend to make people irritable......Why? Because wind alters the number of positively and negatively charged molecules in the air -- and in turn that affects your brain's biochemistry. Here are some other ways the weather can affect your mood: • First: Let's say there's a cold snap. Dr. Lawrence Palinkas studied the impact of extremely cold temperatures on Antarctic researchers......He found that people tend to get angry and irritable after prolonged exposure to cold. Also, it can alter your thyroid hormones and cause depression and short-term memory loss. • Another way weather affects us: Heat waves can make your TEMPER boil. According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the number of assaults over a 45-year period went up during the hotter years. Researchers say uncomfortably high temperatures increase "annoyance-provoked" crimes, in which the primary goal is to hurt someone. • And our last weather/personality link has to do with spring fever. Dr. Matthew Keller is an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. And after studying 600 people, he found that sunny spring days and warm weather seem to boost mood, and makes us more open to new ideas.

Insidermedicine In 60 - February 29, 2012 From Italy - Research published in the Annals of Oncology predicts that cancer death rates will decline this year in the European Union. Reviewing cancer data from all 27 EU member states, researchers estimate that nearly 1.3 million people will die from cancer in 2012--representing a 10% decline in death rates in men and 7% in women since 2007. From Massachusetts - A blocked memory gene may lead to Alzheimer's disease, according to a report published in Nature. Studying mice, researchers discovered that increases in the HDAC2 protein produces blocks genes involves in learning and memory. They found that preventing the buildup of the protein protected the rodents from developing memory loss. And finally, from Georgia - Temperature-related deaths have increased dramatically among US football players, according to a report published in the International Journal of Biometeorology. Researchers studied 30 years of data on deaths that occurred during football practice. They found that heat-related deaths tripled to average three per year between 1994-2009.
