... Cieciel) Comment. Male lactation, which is rare in humans, is probably associated with this increased production of prolactin. Male lactation is also known in other mammals, such as fruit bats. (See SF#93) The mind is driving all of these chemical changes in the father-to-be. The question is HOW? And, maybe WHY? From Science Frontiers #133, JAN-FEB 2001.© 2001 William R.

This sympathetic reaction is called the "couvade." This phenomenon can be partially explained biochemically, but psychosomatic factors are obviously involved. Researchers find that a father-to-be's estrogen (female hormone) levels rise markedly-- even exceeding that of his wife ...

... Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Living stalactites! subterranean life! (in three parts) Translation of the Introduction of an article from Science et Vie: "One has always held that the calcareous concretions in caves are the work of water and the chemical constituents of the rock. Surprise! The true workers in the kingdom of darkness are living organisms." It's all true. All the references we have state unequivocally that stalactites and stalagmites are created by dripping water that is charged with minerals, calcium carbonate in ... be ten times that number that have no surface openings and therefore escape spelunking census takers. And besides caves big enough for humans to crawl into, there exists an immensely greater continuum of cracks, crevices, channels, and pores which circulate air, water, and chemicals in solution. This "crevicular structure" may be continuous for thousands of miles, possibly around the world. Furthermore, it is filled with life forms of great variety, usually blind, and usually related to creatures of the light. A recent article in ...

... dimensions measured accurately before and after bending. The hardness of the metal was tested before and after and the crystalline structure of the metal examined by taking 'residual strain profiles'. The structure was also examined under the electron microscope and micro photographs taken. In addition the chemical composition of the metal was examined before and after. These observations revealed a number of structural anomalies such as a local hardening of the kind produced by compression forces of many tons, but apparently originating internally. Hasted has adopted similar rigorous precautions to rule out fraud ... spoon 'as soft as chewing gum' merely by stroking but under closely controlled conditions that enabled the plastic deformation to be verified by Hasted himself and where the chemical composition and weight of the spoon was examined before and after. It is possible to soften a metal spoon chemically but only by causing a corrosion that would leave a number of alteration such as weight loss, and no such changes were detected. The usual response to such experiments is "How come scientists have discounted them? They must have been frauds musn't they?" ...

Insects and other organisms also acquire resistance to chemical poisons. Does extrachromosomal DNA play roles in these instances, too? Can Information coded in extrachromosomal DNA be passed from one species to another, say, via insect bites? From Science Frontiers #50, MAR-APR 1987.© 1987-2000 William R. Corliss Other ... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 50: Mar-Apr 1987 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects How Cancers Fight Chemotherapy How do cancer cells develop resistance to lethal chemicals? The clues seem to reside in extrachromosomal DNA that carries drug-resistance-conferring genes from one cancer cell to another. Cancer cells dying from chemotherapy may, for example, cast off extrachromosomal DNA that carries information on how to combat the chemicals. Other factors may also be at work, but basically we have only suspicions. ( ...
105. Venus and the River Styx [Thunderbolts Website]
... carved by terrestrial water goes quite deep. We see fanlike river deltas, meanders, and bars, and places where streams have flooded their banks.“ On Venus, where it is far too hot for liquid water, perhaps a stream of lava with the right chemical composition could flow like a river. We have had to use a lot of imaginative physics and chemistry to come up with a suitable model.“ Topographical analysis of the flow paths produced a puzzling result: some of them seem to flow uphill! Since gravity ... gravity on any planet, the ground in these places must have shifted since the time the rivers ran.” Grinspoon ’ s commentary shows how strained the Earth-centered analogies become. There is little evidence of damage to the channel that would be expected from ground movements sufficient to cause kilometer height changes. And with all of the strange tributary channels we should expect to see a progressive widening of the main channel. But no widening is evident. The channel is more simply explained as a surface cosmic lightning channel --a thunderbolt. In a ...

When water is added to bismuth trichloride, a precipitate, bismuth oxychloride, forms. The precipitation rate seems to vary with time, being different from one month to the next. This time variation has been confirmed at many laboratories around the world and is not dependent on any obvious meteorological condition. Instead, some investigators claim to have found ... , and Zecca, Luigi; "Period Analysis of the Picardi P-Test," Cycles, 33:78, 1982.) Comment. This precipitation test, called the Piccardi P-Test, has been offered for years by cycle students as proof of extraterrestrial influences on earthly chemistry, including biochemistry. No explanation has been suggested; and one reads about it only in "fringe" publications. From Science Frontiers #22, JUL-AUG 1982.© 1982-2000 William R. Corliss Other Sites of Interest SIS.

107. Tektites [Thunderbolts Website]
... tektite types. Strewn fields of tektites, occurring within defined areas, are suggestive of regional, not global, events. The majority of specialists today believe that tektites, though originating on Earth, were blasted out of terrestrial soil by meteoric impact. They identify the chemical composition of various tektites with that of Earth ’ s crustal rocks. Reinforcing this interpretation was the discovery that some tektites harbored spherules of nickel-iron, the constituent material of many meteorites. Additionally, the many samples of lunar soil returned by the Apollo missions did not ... the building blocks for tektites, whereas a primary base in terrestrial chemistry is increasingly evident. For example, the isotopic composition of argon inclusions in sealed bubbles suggests a terrestrial origin, according to many specialists. Prof. S.R. Taylor, in his book "Solar System Evolution", writes: "The source of tektites has been demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt as being due to melted terrestrial (usually sedimentary) rock splashed during meteorite impact. The whole argument over a lunar vs. terrestrial origin of tektites was an interesting example of ...

... x 10 18 W, which is about 700 times as much. Talbott's suggestion that endothermic photochemical reactions may absorb a major part of the radiated energy is interesting, but I doubt that such reactions can have a significant effect on the net radiation from Venus. The chemical reactions in the atmosphere are generally assumed to be cyclic, in the sense that endothermic reactions at one place are balanced by exothermic reactions at some other place within the atmosphere. No energy is permanently bound in this way; if it were, the composition of ... been up-staged, so to speak, by Keister and Hamilton is scant consolation considering the plethora of deficiencies that could be identified in their paper: an inadequate literature survey that ignores Sherrerd's earlier work, Hamilton's own paper on the circularization of planetary orbits, Juergens on bulk chemistry and Crew on the ejection of solid core material from gaseous planets; an erroneous dismissal of Jupiter as a candidate for a Lyttleton-type fissioning; a confused discussion of Jupiter's moment of inertia; and a misperception of Jupiter as entirely compressible, thereby denying the highly probable ...

... and concise way on a controversial and difficult subject, and one involving- indeed, somewhat beset by- highly sophisticated methods of investigation. At one time it was thought that tektites could result from volcanic eruptions on Earth, but this idea was soon dispelled. The chemical composition of tektites was far different from other terrestrial volcanic rocks. Other ideas including their genesis in the heating of meteorites, the collision between a meteorite and a natural Earth satellite, and falls of an antimatter, have not stood the test of time. Two ... of terrestrial rocks, especially sediments..." In other words, these glassy beads are formed by the melting of Earth rocks consequent upon the impact of a comet or meteorite. In its favour this hypothesis has the long-known fact that "... the chemistry of tektites resembles nothing so much as continental sediments, especially sandstones". Also in its favour, but not mentioned by Smith, is the fact that tektites do not bear cosmic ray tracks (Workshop 4:2, p. 15), for had ...
