Bowdoin Scientist and Research Partners Add Surprising Chapter to Climate ...

Arctic peatlands may play a more beneficial role in the global carbon cycle than previously thought After four years of conducting research in the peat bogs that cover much of the Arctic, Bowdoin biogeochemist Phil Camill and his research partners are sharing an important finding that could add another layer to the story of climate change. It is commonly accepted that as the world warms, much of the Arctic’s frozen land, including vast stretches of peatland, will begin to thaw. In this process, not yet fully decomposed organic material—ancient shrubs, roots, grasses, mosses, etc., stored deep in frigid soil—will begin to break down. The decomposition of this organic matter, which contains a lot of carbon, will release huge quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, hastening and worsening climate change. “This is an unintended, unexpected release of carbon into atmosphere, a biosphere response,” said Camill, who is Bowdoin’s Rusack Professor of Environmental Studies and Earth and Oceanographic Science. “It makes climate change potentially faster and happen to a larger degree.” Professors Zicheng Yu, Phil Camill and David Beilman In 2011, Camill and two other scientists—David Beilman, of the University of Hawaii, and Zicheng Yu, from Lehigh University—received a National Science Foundation grant to investigate northern peatlands and their role in the gl...  

Market isn't stretched, buy Obamacare: Strategist

Getty Images Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. He also believes that U.S. companies will continue to buy back their own stock, leading to further stock market gains in a bull market that has run for around six years. On Wednesday, Golub gave this earning season's better-than-expected profits as grounds for optimism, even though turnover in corporate America might remain weak. "I think the economy is showing that kind of vibrancy," he told CNBC. So far, 76 percent of companies in the S&P 500 have reported second-quarter earnings above estimates, research firm Factset said in its weekly report last Friday. It also stated that the benchmark was trading at 16.7 times its forward estimates—an important metric often used to gauge the attractiveness of equity indexes. This is above both its 5-year and 10-year averages. The S&P 500 has only risen 1.7 percent so far in 2015, but has rallied by over 200 percent since the depths of the global financial crisis in March 2009. Nonetheless, Golub's optimism is in stark contrast to other analysts, who have voiced concerns about hefty valuations. Stewart Richardson, CIO of RMG Wealth Management, responded directly to Golub's comments, saying that there was some cause for concern. "When you look at long-term valuation metrics...  

Bank of Russia Halts Forex Purchases

MOSCOW—The Bank of Russia said Wednesday it had suspended daily purchases of U.S. dollars for its reserves since Tuesday as the ruble dropped to four-month lows, threatening to spur already stubbornly high inflation. The fresh ruble weakness, mostly driven by a slump in global oil prices, seems set to scuttle hopes for big cuts to the central bank’s lending rates this year to revive the country’s shrinking economy. The bank has... ...

Why Gabi Is the Most Frustrating Player in the Atletico Madrid Squad

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno/Getty Images Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid have gone from La Liga makeweights to challengers on all fronts in a matter of years, with the latest summer activity an indication of not only their spending power but also their capacity to regularly win titles and attract high-quality signings. That's not to say that the team has been put together by spending power and simply buying in big names though; far from it in fact. Simeone has moulded a squad which fits into his tactical demands and has gotten the very best out of players who, four or five years ago, would have been seen as also-rans in la Liga, or else those who never quite fulfilled what was expected of them until that point. Juanfran and Raul Garcia are examples of players who have thrived under Simeone's approach, but perhaps most of all it was club captain Gabi who benefited. Since skippering Atleti to the Liga title and Champions League final, though, he hasn't quite managed to retain the same level—and that makes him one of the few frustrating figures left at Atletico Madrid, certainly since Alessio Cerci's one-man circus left town. Complete Midfielder GERARD JULIEN/Getty Images Sitting at the heart of Atleti's four-man midfield, Gabi was, or perhaps still is, a total player who could do everything required of him by Simeone. A ball-winner, a fantastic distributor and a combative, industrious engine to cover the entire length of the field, Gabi meted out justice on the opposition. He...

AFP not threatened by China's drills in South China Sea

MANILA, Philippines - The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is unfazed by China’s recent air and sea drills in the South China Sea even as it urged the Chinese military to observe transparency in its exercises. AFP spokesman Col. Restituto Padilla said any sovereign nation has the right to conduct exercises that are relevant to its security interests. “Any kind of military exercise is always subject to the interpretation of an outsider so an outsider who is biased against that country can initiate negative comments,” Padilla said. “But from our perspective, that being their right, they can do that as long as they don’t intrude into others’ (territory),” he added. Padilla said the military does not see China’s exercises as a form of threat or muscle-flexing. He, however, cited the need for the Chinese military to be transparent in its drills. “There are certain activities that may need to be open for engagement with all other countries,” the military spokesman said. Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1 “We are hoping that other nations, China included, will be as transparent as anyone has been so that there are better opportunities for discussion and dialogue instead of no connection at all,” he added. Padilla noted that the Philippines invites observers from other countries when holding joint exercises with its allies. “From an international perspective, transpa...  

Pain relief could come from a 'drugstore' for cells

One of the worst kinds of pain might be chronic type caused by damaged nerves. It can last a long time. And there aren’t many treatments for it. But there is one treatment that helps in mice. And scientists now think they finally may understand how it works.For the treatment, scientists extract cells from the bone marrow of mice. These cells are then injected into the spinal cord of a mouse with nerve damage. The injected cells flock to injured cells where they make a pain-relieving protein. Researchers shared their new finding July 13 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. They suspect it might one day lead to improved treatments for people who suffer from chronic pain.  Researchers had known that the marrow cells can relieve pain. What they didn’t know was why, explains Ru-Rong Ji. He is a neurobiologist at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. His team found that the injected cells homed in on their ultimate destination by following chemical signals released by the injured nerve cells. Once there, the injected cells produced an anti-inflammatory protein. It’s called transforming growth factor beta 1, or TGFB1. That protein was what brought long-term relief.The injected cells "make drugs at sites of injury,” notes Arnold Caplan. “They’re drugstores,” explains the biologist at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.   The cells relieved pain in mice in less than one day. Their e...

Chris Christie touched on a number of topics Tuesday as he campaigned in New Hampshire for the Republican nomination for president.

Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to discuss the construction of new Hudson River rail tunnels. And he said the Republican party is "not the anti-immigration party." Meanwhile, during a television interview Monday night, Christie continued to criticized President Obama over the U.S.'s nuclear deal with Iran.
