"Scientists digging deep into the Earth's mantle recently made an unexpected discovery.

Five hundred and fifty kilometres below the Earth's surface, they found highly oxidized iron, similar to the rust we see on our planet's surface, within garnets found within diamonds.

The result surprised geoscientists around the globe because there is little opportunity for iron to become so highly oxidized deep below the Earth's surface".

"Forensic researchers at North Carolina State University have found a more accurate way to assess an individual's age at death, based on the bone mineral density of the femur. The technique could be used to help identify human remains.

"Current techniques for assessing an individual's age at death rely on reviewing the wear and tear on a skeleton's joint surfaces," says Ann Ross, a professor of biological sciences at NC State and corresponding author of a paper on the work. "But there is a lot of variability there, based on an individual's lifestyle and how a forensic practitioner interprets those skeletal features. Depending on the method being used, current approaches could list a deceased individual in his or her 40s as being anywhere from 27 to 70 years old.

"However, bone mineral content and density increase as we grow, then decline at a fairly steady rate once we reach adulthood - making it a potentially useful way of assessing age," Ross says.

While using bone mineral density to assess age is a concept that's been around for several years, the NC State team has found a way to fine-tune the practice.

Specifically, the researchers found that assessing bone mineral density at the neck of the femur provided the best sampling data for determining age.

In a study assessing the remains of 33 men and eight women, the researchers found that bone mineral density could be used to determine age within a 13-year margin of error.

"This, in itself, is a step in the right direction," Ross says. "But we think the method could be made even more accurate if we were able to significantly increase the sample size, including more women and more representatives from each age group."

The researchers found no significant difference between men and women based on the bone mineral density of the femur. However, they did find difference between sexes in the density of the skull".

1st quarter moon is January 24 - A 1st quarter moon from Wisconsin – November 26, 2017 – from Suzanne Murphy. On a 1st quarter moon, the terminator line – or line between light and dark on the moon – appears straight. The first first quarter moon of 2018 will come on January 24 at 22:20 UTC; translate UTC to your time zone. No matter where you are on Earth, watch for it – half-illuminated (or nearly so), looking like half a pie – in late afternoon or evening. A first quarter moon rises arou...

It is with great sorrow the I learned of the passing of the incomparable Ursula K LeGuin. No other author inspires me like she does. Through her books such as The Left Hand of Darkness, The Disposed and the Earthsea series, I've explored my own humanity. If you've never read her works I encourage you to pick one up. Her spin on science fiction is as unique as she is. Thank you Ms. Le Guin for your words, stories and insights.

Cool "Doctor Who" spinoff!! It only got one season, but I don't know why. My daughter and I are loving it! A bit darker than Doctor Who, but still 😎😎
