A usual zombie story would mean running for your lives against these walking dead creatures or else you'd get bitten and infected and ended up being a zombie as well. Considering the probabilities, the extent of infection, and the time needed to turn a whole city into a legion of zombies, a model says Chicago will only need less than 60 days.
Just when the world started to adopt movies with themes on cheating and third parties, now animals seem to follow the same craze as well. The video recently captured by the National Geographic on a fight between two penguins due to unfaithfulness has gone viral on the world wide web.
Satellite images comparing major water bodies in the state with their conditions a decade ago alarmed officials and locals as the images showed an impending water crisis in California.
Experts from the UK have developed a scavenger robot with a "mouth" and a "stomach" that can "eat" and eventually digest organisms to provide its energy requirements.
Typical maps help us understand the location of different regions and countries at one glance, but globes help us visualize the real picture of our planet. Just recently, an architect developed a map considered as the most concise and most accurate yet in representing the different continents and countries of the world.
Nearly 50 percent of the recorded 1.7 million cases of hospital-acquired infections in the U.S. are caused by biofouling or the contamination of medical devices and materials that cause infection. To resolve these, a coating called SLIPS was developed to reduce adhesion of bacteria and literally makes them slip off.
Many have criticized Apple for producing phones that are a little different than, or no different from, their predecessors. But it looks like the tech giant is taking a different direction. How about making your usual touch screen foldable?
Last year, Oregon declared the commercial use of marijuana as legal. However, there have been recent reports on marijuana use not by people, but by pets, which seem to stumble upon pot and get totally high.
Wildlife killings are not new, but a recent study has taken a deeper view in understanding why people still kill animals. Specifically focusing on the declining population of the Bangladesh tigers, the study highlighted the typologies of tiger killers, shedding a better light to manipulate their behaviors and decrease the killing spree.
Alient hunters went berserk after NASA released a photo showing what could be a possible fossilized grizzly bear or a sloth-like creature. Does life on Mars really exist?
A research paper presented last week at the 2016 Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting and yet to be published contested the claims of a previously published paper by David Martill and his colleagues on the Tetrapodophis amplectus or four-legged snake. So whose fossil was it?
Numerous studies have focused on the implications of climate change using the mean observations on existing ecosystems, but not on short-term weather disruption. In line with the wide spectrum of the climate change concept, extreme climatic events (ECEs), which do not show any normal pattern, were one of the factors included by a research team from the University of East Anglia to understand the impact of climate change on United Kingdom's butterfly population.
There are 46,000 spider species in the world, and around 22 million distinct venom compounds, now collectively termed as "venome." Through the lens of molecular biology, the spider venom is now being understood and explored for possible pharmaceutical drugs and anti-venoms that can be formulated from it.
Be it pregnant women, women of child-bearing age, or those who are planning to get pregnant, all are very cautious in taking vacations and out-of-the-country holidays because of the Zika virus scare. In Canada, a large portion of the locals has canceled their trips just to be safe from the virus.
Covering thousands of miles and staying most of the time flying, the routine of birds was initially hypothesized by Ron Lockley, a British researcher in the 70s. It was still a question whether it can really stay that long, but a recent study claimed that it could really happen, and the common swiftlets are now holding the record for the longest natural sustained flight.
