Why the platypus gave up suckling, and how gravity waves clear clouds

Suckling mothers milk is a pretty basic feature of being a mammal. Humans do it. Possums do it. But monotremes such as the platypus and echidna—although still mammals—gave up suckling long ago. Instead, they lap at milky patches on their mothers’ skin to get early sustenance. Science News Writer Gretchen Vogel talks with host Sarah Crespi about the newest suckling science—it turns out monotremes probably had suckling ancestors, but gave it up for the ability to grind up tasty, hard-shelled, river-dwelling creatures. Sarah also talks with Sandra Yuter of North Carolina State University in Raleigh about her work on fast-clearing clouds off the southwest coast of Africa. These immense marine layers appear to be exiting the coastal regions under the influence of gravity waves (not to be confused with gravitational waves). This finding can help scientists better model cloud behavior, particularly with respect to their influence on global temperatures. This week’s episode was edited by Podigy.

Och jo, die kleinen Veränderungen des eigenen Verhaltens bringen schon was, wenn eine kritische Masse anfängt, hier und da etwas "anders" zu machen.

Nur hat das Kapital nix anderes zu tun, als sich anzupassen - dann verkaufen se halt Demeter beim Edeka, Hauptsache es kommt Gewinn rein.
Das ist doof, Edeka Anleger mit zu füttern?
Dann geh zum lokalen Bauern, und hols dir direkt dort wo es wächst - oder lebt der hinter Stacheldrahtzäunen?

Oder ist es doch eher allzuoft die eigene Bequemlichkeit, die "das System am laufen hält"?

Im REWE ist halt alles versammelt, flugs durch mit dem Einkaufswagen. 
Da musste nicht zig Einzelgeschäfte, Bauern usw abklappern bis man alles beisammen hat, was man selber nicht machen kann oder will.

Aber jeder Demeter Joghurt führt schon dazu, dass kein Müllermilch Joghurt gekauft wird.

Jeder griechische Salat, den man sich zum Mittag reinzieht, ist schon ein Schnitzel oder McDonalds Besuch weniger.

Jeder Weg den man mal entlang spaziert, ist schon ein bisschen Öl/Benzin weniger.

Wie eine Pflanze nicht beim Wachsen beobachtbar ist, so "sieht" man Veränderungen auch nicht nach 5 Minuten.

Aber irgend wann pflückt man dann Tomaten, die Zeit vergeht eh, ob man ne Pflanze hat oder nicht. 
Nur hat man keine Tomate, wenn man sich nicht um die Pflanze kümmerte.

It's been 7 years since I started souping and I have to admit it makes me a bit sad when I see familiar usernames and notes like: posted "5 months ago", "11 months ago", "2 years ago" and so on. I've met lots of amazing people here and I still miss them and every time I scroll soup I still wonder where they are now and what they're doing, no matter if they keep reposting anything or not. I wish they knew that I still think about them sometimes and I wish them all the best. No matter if they were "just" people whose usernames I recognized and liked their soups or friends I spent a lot of time talking with and making happy memories. They all still have a special place in my heart.

Science books for summer, and a blood test for predicting preterm birth

What book are you taking to the beach or the field this summer? Science’s books editor Valerie Thompson and host Sarah Crespi discuss a selection of science books that will have you catching comets and swimming with the fishes. Sarah also talks with Mira Moufarrej of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, about her team’s work on a new blood test that analyzes RNA from maternal blood to determine the gestational age of a fetus. This new approach may also help predict the risk of preterm birth. This week’s episode was edited by Podigy. Listen to previous podcasts. [Image: William Warby/Flickr; Music: Jeffrey Cook]
