UV-B–induced forest sterility: Implications of ozone shield failure in Earth’s largest extinction

Although Siberian Trap volcanism is considered a primary driver of the largest extinction in Earth history, the end-Permian crisis, the relationship between these events remains unclear. However, malformations in fossilized gymnosperm pollen from the extinction interval suggest biological stress coinciding with pulsed forest decline. These grains are hypothesized to have been caused by enhanced ultraviolet-B (UV-B) irradiation from volcanism-induced ozone shield deterioration. We tested this proposed mechanism by observing the effects of inferred end-Permian UV-B regimes on pollen development and reproductive success in living conifers. We find that pollen malformation frequencies increase fivefold under high UV-B intensities. Surprisingly, all trees survived but were sterilized under enhanced UV-B. These results support the hypothesis that heightened UV-B stress could have contributed not only to pollen malformation production but also to deforestation during Permian-Triassic crisis intervals. By reducing the fertility of several widespread gymnosperm lineages, pulsed ozone shield weakening could have induced repeated terrestrial biosphere destabilization and food web collapse ...

Review: Belkin BOOST CHARGE Power Bank 2K for Apple Watch

The Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE Power Bank 2K for Apple Watch (all series) is exactly what it says – a Qi wireless charger and power bank for an Apple Watch. Design-wise the BOOST↑CHARGE Power Bank 2K is about the size of a matchbox (79 x 42 x 17mm x 70g) in basic black with a white concave magnetic charge plate. On one end is a micro-USB socket for 5V/2.1A (maximum) charging and four LEDs to approximately indicate 25% increments of charge. Under the bonnet, it is a 3.83V, 8426Wh, 2200mAh battery which is to power the 200-300mAh (approx) Apple Watch battery. The Qi charge plate outputs 5V/1A or 5W. It came indicating 75% charge, so we set about topping the rest up. No charger comes with it, but a 180mm short USB-A to micro-USB cable is in the box. Using a 5V/2A charger it took over an hour indicating a full charge at around four hours. In one further subsequent test from almost 0-100%, it took just over five hours. This is slower than expected. We would love to say that a 5W (5V/1A) Qi charger works as fast as a 5W wall charger but by it nature Qi seldom achieves over 70% efficiency. As a control, we ran down an Apple Watch 4 (easy to do if you use GPS) and charged from its genuine char...

Machinery makers to parade smarter, more sustainable options at K 2019 logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Injection press manufacturers will show off many of the signature themes of the plastics industry today: a circular economy, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence and new technology to improve service and enable preventive maintenance, including augmented reality and the use of sensors to predict problems. And until someone invents a technology — be it virtual reality or some other highly advanced technology pending development — that lets you visit a trade show from the comfort of your couch, you have to travel to Düsseldorf, Germany, in the fall for the technology world’s largest plastics trade show. Arburg GmbH & Co. KG (Hall 13, Booth A13) officials have created company-specific terms to show its commitment to the topics of digitalization and the circular economy: “arburgXworld” and the launch of “arburgGREENworld.” The main goal is to conserve resources and make a significant contribution to production efficiency. In a practical circular-economy demonstration, Arburg will present two examples of arburgGREENworld. First, the company will mold polypropylene cups from about 30 percent recycled PP on a new size of hybrid Allrounder, with 600 me...

Astoundingly light for a 17-inch laptop. As compact a footprint as possible for the screen size.

Astoundingly light for a 17-inch laptop. As compact a footprint as possible for the screen size. Outstanding battery life. Excellent display. Comprehensive port selection. Boring, plain design. Feels flimsier than the alloy body suggests. Uncomfortable touchpad. No touch-screen option. Relatively pricey. LG’s Gram 17, astonishingly light for a 17-inch laptop, delivers excellent battery life and a glorious screen. But the relatively high price, the plain design, and some quibbles with the keyboard and touchpad keep it from stardom. The LG Gram 17 handles some of the most important aspects of a laptop with aplomb. It is—by far—the lightest laptop with a 17-inch screen we’ve ever tested, as well as the longest-lasting away from a power outlet. Unfortunately, it accomplishes the first feat in a chassis with a ho-hum design and aspects that are flimsy in spots. The result is a laptop that doesn’t feel like it justifies its $1,499 asking price, and one that would merit a lower rating were it not for its light weight, large high-quality display, and outstanding battery life. If these three factors are what matters to you, the Gram 17 is a no-brainer. It simply maximiz...

No wardrobe is complete without a collection of great tees. And while you can pick and

No wardrobe is complete without a collection of great tees. And while you can pick and choose styles from across the spectrum, sometimes the easiest way to ensure your look has a solid foundation is to find a T-shirt brand that works for you and stock up. Of course, this being the internet, there’s no shortage of options out there—maybe even too many, if we’re being honest. There are a lot of shirts to sort through! That’s where we come in. We’ve done the heavy lifting, testing out all kinds of tees and pulling together this list of the 28 best brands to shop right now. Wear your tees on their own or layered with a camp-collar shirt now, then pair them up with sweaters, jackets, and sweatshirts when the fall arrives. Let’s start with the basics. For a full range of great T-shirt basics, head to Uniqlo. At $10 a pop, it’s a great place to stock up.  Hanes makes the ultimate undershirt, but the premium cotton blend elevates it a bit. Wear this for weekend lounging or quick errands.  Don’t sleep on heavier tees. These tend to wrinkle less and hold their shape better than super light ones.  J.Crew’s slub tees are perfect for wearing in...

Here’s What Protects Shipwrecks From Looters and Hacks

On May 25, 1798, the HMS DeBraak was entering Delaware Bay when a squall struck without warning. The British ship that originally belonged to the Dutch capsized and sank, taking 34 sailors and a dozen Spanish prisoners down with it. Rumored to contain a hoard of gold and jewelry, the DeBraak became a popular target for treasure hunters in the years that followed. The wreck was finally discovered in 1986, lying under 80 feet of water at the mouth of the Delaware River. The team who found the ship attempted to raise it from its watery grave, resulting in one of the worst archaeological disasters in modern history. The event precipitated the passing of long-overdue laws designed to prevent something like this from ever happening again. Soon after the wreck of the DeBraak was found, treasure hunters speculated that it contained riches to the tune of $500 million, even though no evidence existed to support the claim. The team who made the discovery formed a company called Sub-Sal Incorporated to conduct a salvage operation. Its divers eagerly scoured the wreck, pulling up a gold ring belonging to the ship’s captain, belt buckles, a cannon, a long-barreled pistol, two bottles of rum, ...

For most farmers and ranchers, building fence is not the most desirable job they do –

For most farmers and ranchers, building fence is not the most desirable job they do – so when they build a fence they want it to last. Fencing expert Steven Sarson offers a few tips to make a well-built and long lasting fence. This regional sales manager for Bekaert Fencing has worked in the fencing industry for over two decades. A large part of his workweeks are spent hosting fencing workshops and seminars for fencing contractors and livestock producers. Before purchasing supplies for a new fencing project, Sarson says time should be taken to consider the purpose of the fence. In a news release from Bekaert, he explains it should be determined what type of livestock will be kept in or what type of wildlife will be kept out. Also, consideration should be given to the stocking densities. The brace, according to Sarson, is the heart and soul of the fence. A well-built brace can absorb 6,000 pounds of pressure, but if not properly constructed, the brace will fail, as will the entire fence. He emphasizes when using wood posts to use round posts and not square posts. Round posts, with all the growth rings intact, have the strength of the tree. Square posts aren’t desirable. They are ...
