It is often said that animals behave unusually before an earthquake. In an international cooperation project, researchers investigated whether cows, sheep, and dogs can actually detect early signs of earthquakes. In the experiment, sensors to the animals in an earthquake-prone area in Northern Italy and recorded their movements over several months. In order to be able to use animal activity patterns as a kind of early warning system for earthquakes, the animals would have to show measurable behavioural changes. Moreover, if they do indeed react to weak physical changes immediately before an…
Thirty years after the U.S.S.R. collapsed we are still learning about the ramifications of overarching government control of essential services. Though the combined Germany now has nationwide healthcare, some government health care is worse than others. You don't want to be in a South African public hospital today and you didn't want to be in a communist Russia one then. East Germans still have many more hospitalisations for heart failure compared to West Germans. Heart failure is the most common reason for hospital admissions and is responsible for a large part of the total health…
The complex ways in which quarks bind themselves into composite particles such as the protons and neutrons found inside atomic nuclei are not yet understood so the discovery of a four-quark particle, the first of a previously undiscovered class of particles, could provide valuable insight into physics at the very small level. Quarks typically combine together in groups of twos and threes to form particles called hadrons. Physicists had only observed tetraquarks with two heavy quarks at most and none with more than two quarks of the same type but had predicted the existence of four-quark and…
