The only time to pay attention to a single study (other than a meta-analysis) is if it's very large. Otherwise, it's a piece of data that may be important to people working in the field but is of no practical significance to anyone else.

“You can make the argument that a single photon cannot possibly change the state of 3,000 atoms, but this one photon does — it builds up correlations that you didn’t have before,” says Vladan Vuletic, the Lester Wolfe Professor in MIT’s Department of Physics, and the paper’s senior author. “We have basically opened up a new class of entangled states we can make, but there are many more new classes to be explored.” #VladanVuletic #photonics   #physics  
Result could make atomic clocks more accurate.

There's been a dramatic rise in short-sightedness - why?
Short-sightedness is reaching epidemic proportions. Some scientists think they have found a reason why.

Here's the smallest snake species in the world:

Barbados threadsnake

The Barbados threadsnake (Leptotyphlops carlae) is a species of blind threadsnake. It is the smallest snake species currently known to exist. This member of the Leptotyphlopidae family is endemic to the Caribbean island of Barbados.

The snake was first described and identified as a separate species in 2008 by S. Blair Hedges, a biologist from Pennsylvania State University. Hedges named the new species of snake in honor of his wife, Carla Ann Hass, a herpetologist who was part of the discovery team.

Specimens already existed in reference collections in the London Natural History Museum and in a museum in California, but they had been incorrectly identified to belong to another species.

At the time of publication, August 2008, L. carlae was described as the snake species with the smallest adults in the world.

The first scientific specimens taken by the research team were found under rocks in a forest. The snake is thought to be near the lower size limit for snakes, as young snakes need to attain a certain minimum size to find suitable food.

It amuses me endlessly that GMO haters want the US Government--who they claim is in the pocket of Monsanto--to establish the labels. They are so much better off with their own system, and they cannot understand this.
