How Vultures Can Eat Rotting Flesh Without Getting Sick

via Live Science:

Vultures’ faces and large intestines are covered with bacteria that is toxic to most other creatures, but these birds of prey have evolved a strong gut that helps them not get sick from feasting on rotting flesh, according to a new study.

In the first analysis of bacteria living on vultures, the study’s researchers found that these scavengers are laden with flesh-degrading Fusobacteria and poisonous Clostridia. As bacteria decompose a dead body, they excrete toxic chemicals that make the carcass a perilous meal for most animals. But vultures often wait for decay to set in, giving them easy access to dead animals with tough skins.

Moreover, vultures will often pick at a dead animal through its back end — that is, the anus — to get at the tasty entrails. Their diet may be filled with toxic bacteria and putrid feces, but vultures are apparently immune to these deadly microbes, the researchers said.

Activist Comics: Public Financing

Elections are in the public interest, designating the propriety of public works, impacting every single member of the public — so therefore we must have public financing for campaigns. When the candidate with the most money wins over 90 percent of the time, it’s not an election, it’s a rich kid’s birthday party.

Most people don’t have money to give away, let alone to people running for office. Those who give the biggest sums of money command the candidate’s attention (Sheldon Adelson circle jerk), and even though these donors already have plenty of money to shower on candidates, they are blowing millions in hopes to reap millions more.

This is what our democratic process has come to. No wonder voter turnout is at an historic low. Candidates have become NASCAR drivers, promoting their sponsors like it’s their job–which it is, because that is where their money is coming from. Instead of trying to make the case for public financing, the question should be, how can we nothave it?… Read the rest

Rare Footage of a Black Seadevil (Deep-Sea Anglerfish)

Deep-sea anglerfish are strange and elusive creatures that are very rarely observed in their natural habitat. Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles. This little angler, about 9 cm long, is named Melanocetus. It is also known as the Black Seadevil and it lives in the deep dark waters of the Monterey Canyon. MBARI’s ROV Doc Ricketts observed this anglerfish for the first time at 600 m on a midwater research expedition in November 2014. We believe that this is the first video footage ever made of this species alive and at depth.

Separation of Church and Space?

via University of Dayton:

Whether you believe the Philae probe’s landing on a speeding comet is a monumental advance or a colossal waste might depend on your religion, according to a University of Dayton researcher.

Many in the space community see the landing as a critical step in colonizing the solar system, such as NASA Planetary Science Division Director Jim Green who said, “I truly believe that a single-planet species will not survive long. It’s our destiny to move off this planet.” (see CNET article)

Yet Evangelical Protestants are much surer Jesus will return in the next 40 years than that humans will make significant strides in space exploration, according to research by University of Dayton political science assistant professor Joshua Ambrosius.

“Evangelicals have been hesitant to recognize the discoveries of modern science — from evolutionary origins to climate change,” Ambrosius said. “The data show that this overall attitude extends into space.”

Ambrosius used data from the General Social Survey and three Pew surveys to compare knowledge, interest and support for space exploration among Catholics, Evangelicals, Mainline Protestants, Jews, Eastern religions and those with no religion.

Summary Podcast from the Indie Bohemians Morning Show. A Morning Show, for people that hate Morning Shows. Based in Nashville, TN.

Angie Dorin gives us a Monkey Minute, later in Pop Culture is the craft beer craze over taking Budweiser? Also, we explore a case involving a scam Academic Journal that accepted an article that was just one sentence repeated over and over. Finally, we take a look at the very heavy case of Ferguson. Although this is not a light topic nor is it a light discussion we try to end on a bit of hope. Disclaimer: This recording took place before Darren Wilson’s statement was made public, worth noting because at one point we allude to a taser.

The Blood Soaked Road To Enlightenment: An Interview With David Metcalfe

Disinfonauts! Some have this idea that enlightenment can be bought one yoga mat at a time at Whole Foods, but is that the real deal? With so many soft core eastern traditions infiltrating western culture, how do we parse the legitimate from the bullshit?

Talking to Students at Bangkok’s Hunger Games Protest

imagesvia Vice:

​The Hunger Games movies have become a sym​bol of covert defiance and political expression for protestors in Thailand against the military junta running the country. The newest film opened at the box office this week, and by the end of its first day, three activists had been arrested and the Deputy Prime Minister had to get involved.

Shortly after the Thai army staged a coup d’état on May 22—the 12th successful coup in the past century—protesters began flashing the three-finger salute seen in the Hunger Games to show their opposition to the military takeover. Characters in the Hollywood blockbuster also raise the salute as an act of rebellion against an authoritarian regime, but as anti-coup activists in Thailand will tell you, the struggle here is quite real.

Since seizing power, Thailand’s military government has banned all political protests and criticism of the regime.

On Wednesday, three student activists were arrested during their effort to organize a mass viewing of the movie’s latest instalment [sic], The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I, which opened in theaters across Thailand.

Ten Signs You Might Be Involved With A Sex Addict

How fun is your boyfriend in bed? Is he charming? Does he say all the right things and blow your mind sexually?

Check this list. Maybe he is a little too good to be true.

via Substance.com:

You’ve been hanging out with this guy for a while and everything is great. That’s what you tell people. The truth is, everything is not so great. Things he says and does don’t add up. When you’re together, there is often something forced, even fake, about how he relates to you. Maybe you’re beginning to find out things about his sex life that he has tried to hide. Maybe he has some odd sexual proclivities. What used to be charming or thrilling is starting to freak you out.

The guy may be going through a tough time. He may be a sexual dynamo.
