Link found between physical and emotional warmth
In a study with interesting implications, people who held a cup of hot coffee for 10 to 25 seconds warmed to a perfect stranger. Holding a cup of iced coffee had the opposite effect.



http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...th-coffee.html

People keen to make a positive impression on a new acquaintance might want to meet over a hot drink, a new study suggests.

In a new experiment, people who held steaming cups of coffee for a few seconds judged another person as more generous, caring, and happy than people who held a cup of iced coffee did.

SYDNEY: Rare species of corals are cross breeding with one another in a bid to prevent extinction, researchers have found.

The findings hint at a new way that threatened reefs may be able to adapt to changing environmental conditions, particularly climate change.

Marine biologists at James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland, discovered that when faced with low population levels, the eggs of some rare species of Acropora corals allow themselves to be fertilised by the sperm of other species, generating previously unknown hybrids.

Dhaka - Archaeologists in Bangladesh have discovered an ancient engraved stone, believed to be of the Gupta era nearly 2,000 years ago, in northern part of the country, a media report said on Saturday.

The sandstone, found on the bank of a pond near Sura Masjid at Ghoraghat sub-district of Dinajpur, has been put on display at an archaeological museum in Bogra, the Daily Start newspaper reported quoting museum officials. Sponsored Links: Car Insurance - Rates and Other Resources

The stonework depicts three figures dancing and holding ancient musical instruments. It escaped earlier excavations in Sura Masjid, one of the important archaeological sites of the country.

'The figures seem not be of human beings - the artwork represents dancing figures of some animals,' archaeologist Nahid Sultana, who excavated a number of archaeological sites, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa Saturday. He said the artwork might have been brought to the Sura Masjid site from elsewhere. Sponsored Links: Send a Corporate Holiday Gift

Officials of the archaeological department recovered the sandstone a month ago from Sura Masjid, which was built using stones between 1450 and 1500 AD, during the reign of Sultan Alauddin Hussain Shah, said archaeologist Badrul Alam.

He said such stones were used in Hindu or Buddhist constructions in the area during the Gupta period between 300 AD and 500 AD, an era that saw the emergence of the classical art forms and development of various aspects of Indian culture and civilization. Sponsored Links: Form an LLC

The Lazarus sign: a slight return:

Occasionally, brain-dead patients make movements, owing to the fact that the spinal reflexes are still intact. The most complex, and presumably the most terrifying, is called the Lazarus Sign. It is where the brain-dead patient extends their arms and crosses them over their chest - Egyptian mummy style.

Researchers at the University of Delaware have discovered that when the leaf of a plant is under attack by a pathogen, it can send out an S.O.S. to the roots for help, and the roots will respond by secreting an acid that brings beneficial bacteria to the rescue.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation's posted a nifty Instructable video demonstrating the technique for spotting the secret spy-codes that many color laser-printers and copiers embed in their output. These dots were long-rumoured, but it wasn't until EFF discovered them that their existence was verified and their code was cracked. EFF's working on Freedom of Information Act requests to uncover which government agencies requested these dots, and what they do with them, but in the meantime, you can use the techniques in this video to spy on your friends and neighbours, just like the Feds!

The Psychology of Conmen
October 26th, 2008 by TiamatsVision

“How do conmen convince you to part with your money? Who are they? And how do they choose their victims? Learn their secrets from someone who has studied their dark arts. Magician Nick Johnson has some interesting insights into psychology of scams…and some suggestions on how to stop your money from going up in smoke!

Damien Carrick: Now from secrets that get lifted from government, to how you and I sometimes inadvertently hand over information or money to con men. How do scammers manage to convince people to hand over their hard-earned cash? To find the answer, perhaps we could talk to a police officer or a criminologist. But someone with a lateral take is magician Nicholas Johnson. He reckons that both magicians and scammers use the same box of tools: psychology and sleight of hand. In fact he’s studied the dark arts of the scamster, and has some suggestions on how to stop your money from going up in smoke.

Nicholas Johnson: I think what I love most about con artists and the world of scammers is that they’re criminals who manage to get their victims to hand over their possessions freely. Most thieves and robbers and the like, tend to use force, or deception, in order for them to take things, whereas a con artist manages to get their victim to freely give up their stuff. And I think that’s what really fascinates me the most.”
