Rare Glimpse of a Neon Flying Squid

28 October 2013

The Nautilus team spotted this fast Neon Flying Squid woosh past Argus Cam on their dive to Montserrat.

VLIZ & Natuurpunt (Belgium) reported on Saturday 15 November 2014 (translated):

An European flying squid was found Tuesday on the beach of Nieuwpoort. This squid species lives normally lives far away at sea and visits coastal waters only rarely. A find on a beach is very remarkable. Possibly the extraordinary observation has a connection with the pod of long-finned pilot whales which was spotted yesterday off the coast.

Long-finned pilot whales feed on squid.

Authors Supporting Our Troops 2015 #ASOT2015

ARMAND ROSAMILIA

ASOTlanded4

Hard to believe we are only three months away from the official kickoff to the second year of Authors Supporting Our Troops. I figured now would be a good time to get everyone up to speed and explain the program again so I don’t have to spend so much time this year telling helpful people what we do and do not need to make this another successful year.

First off, we never really stopped collecting author-signed books, we just haven’t posted too much about it once the official end date of May 15th came and went. We collected 2,500 books from authors and publishers in the four months we promoted it. I think that is awesome.

Since then we’ve managed about 75 more books and sent out another shipment overseas to a soldier. the goal for 2015 is to break 3,000 books collected and shipped. We can only do that…

Fight for Rhinos

What do lions, elephants and rhinos have in common? If things continue as they are, they will all be extinct in about 10 years.

One of the things we can do to help is to go on safari. The money raised from tourism is poured into conservation in the area. But one tourist took it a step further. After his trip to Kenya, he was inspired to make a documentary.

During a trip to the Maasai Mara last year, Andrew Brown learned how important wildlife and the tourism industry is to Kenya’s economical success.  No stranger to the world of film, when he returned to the States, he reached out to fellow film makers with the brainchild for “Trophy Games”.

Quite a few RAXA Collective contributors are life-long elephant lovers, and we never tire of learning about these amazing members of the animal kingdom. Thanks to TED Ed for giving us more to remember…

It’s a common saying that elephants never forget. But the more we learn about elephants, the more it appears that their impressive memory is only one aspect of an incredible intelligence that makes them some of the most social, creative, and benevolent creatures on Earth…

Grape seed extract effective against aggressive colorectal cancer

As colorectal cancer gets more aggressive, treatment with grape seed extract is even more effective

By Garth Sundem in In the Lab · January 16, 2013

When the going gets tough, grape seed extract gets going: A University of Colorado Cancer Center study recently published in the journal Cancer Letters shows that the more advanced are colorectal cancer cells, the more GSE inhibits their growth and survival. On the other end of the disease spectrum, GSE leaves healthy cells alone entirely.

“We’ve known for quite a while that the bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. This study shows that many of the same mutations that allow colorectal cancer cells to metastasize and survive traditional therapies make them especially sensitive to treatment with GSE,” says Molly Derry, doctoral candidate in the lab of Rajesh Agarwal, PhD, investigator at the CU Cancer Center and professor…

Which nutritional factors help preserve muscle mass, strength and performance in seniors?

ClinicalNews.Org

January 18, 2013

New review by International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Nutrition Working Group examines role of nutrition in sarcopenia, with focus on protein, vitamins D and B, and acid-based diet.

Sarcopenia, or the gradual loss of muscle mass, is a common consequence of ageing, and poses a significant risk factor for disability in older adults. As muscle strength plays an important role in the tendency to fall, sarcopenia leads to an increased risk of fractures and other injuries.

The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Nutrition Working Group has published a new review which identifies nutritional factors that contribute to loss of muscle mass, or conversely, are beneficial to the maintenance of muscle mass. The Group reviewed evidence from worldwide studies on the role of nutrition in sarcopenia, specifically looking at protein, acid–base balance, vitamin D/calcium, and other minor nutrients like B vitamins.

“The most obvious intervention against sarcopenia is exercise in…
