"Death Planet" Atmosphere Mostly Carbon Monoxide

  It's unlike anything else scientists have seen.“The composition of WASP-18b defies all expectations,” lead author Kyle Sheppard, a doctoral student in astronomy at the University of Maryland, said in a press release. “We don’t know of any other extrasolar planet where carbon monoxide so completely dominates the upper atmosphere.

The proposal by the European Athletics Council to disregard all athletic world records set before 2005 should be abandoned, insist experts in an editorial published online in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. And there are other flaws in this plan , they suggest.

Plans to disregard pre-2005 records have been criticised: 2017 IAAF World Championships - Day Five - London Stadium © PA WIRE 2017 IAAF World Championships - Day Five - London Stadium

Plans to disregard athletics world records set before 2005 should be scrapped, according to a host of medical experts.

Proposals from the European Athletics Council to write off historic world records have been criticised by a group of leading medics, in an editorial for the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Athletics' global governing body is examining the plans to disregard world records set before 2005, as part of the battle against doping violations.

But a host of British and Australian sports scientists have claimed that would only amount to unfair punishment on clean athletes.

Scientists Program Life With New DNA Alphabet

  Scientists Program Life With New DNA Alphabet Scientists found a way to add to DNA’s language, and could one-day program life by manipulating genetic code.A team reported in the journal Nature that it gave two new base elements of genetic code to a group of microorganisms and got the creatures to use them. The researchers call it an “expanded genetic alphabet.

The Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for the release in an anonymous statement saying "These birds were bred, among other reasons, to suffer and die in pre -orchestrated canned hunts; a practice which represents the height of human arrogance and disregard towards animal life

“It seems a double punishment for clean athletes who have competed against and overcome drugs cheats to now lose their world records,” wrote the authors.

In defending current practices, the authors branded attempts “to address the serious issue of drugs in sport with an overly simplistic and ill-conceived strategy.”

The European Athletics Council believes that as urine and blood samples have only been stored since 2005, that records set before that time remain open to scrutiny over possible doping violations.

The British and Australian sports scientists maintain however that many clean athletes will have legitimate records expunged unfairly, if the current plans are implemented.

Leading sports scientists from Plymouth's Marjon University, Exeter University, Cairns' James Cook University and Canberra's Australian Institute of Sport have combined to voice their concern over the proposals being considered.

The authors added: “The initiative by European Athletics is certainly provocative, but it stains the reputation of all athletes pre-2005 by introducing an arbitrary threshold date that may need to be reset in future as new detection methods emerge.”

New island offers clues in search for life on Mars: NASA .
The world's newest island -- formed during a volcanic eruption in the remote Pacific three years ago -- may offer clues to how life potentially developed on Mars, NASA said Wednesday. The island of Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha'apai rose from the seabed about 65 kilometres (40 miles) northwest of the Tongan capital Nuku'alofa in late 2014-early 2015.Scientists initially expected the island -- created when vast quantities of rock and dense ash spewed from the Earth's crust -- to wash away within a few months.
