First fluorescent frog found: A rare find in land animals reveals a new way to glow.

Under normal light, the South American polka dot tree frog (Hypsiboas punctatus) sports a muted palette of greens, yellows and reds. But dim the lights and switch on ultraviolet illumination, and this little amphibian gives off a bright blue and green glow.

The ability to absorb light at short wavelengths and re-emit it at longer wavelengths is called fluorescence, and is rare in terrestrial animals. Until now, it was unheard of in amphibians. Researchers also report that the polka dot tree frog uses fluorescent molecules totally unlike those found in other animals. The team published the find on 13 March in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1.

Because fluorescence requires the absorption of light, it doesn’t happen in total darkness. That makes it distinct from bioluminescence, in which organisms give off their own light generated through chemical reactions. Many ocean creatures fluoresce, including corals, fish, sharks and one species of sea turtle (the hawksbill turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata). On land, fluorescence was previously known only in parrots and some scorpions. It is unclear why animals have this ability, although explanations include communication, camouflage and mate attraction.

Nomadruss: Rainbow Springs, Florida

Amazing photographs by Nomadruss

Rainbow Springs is one of the more popular springs, there’s a big swimming hole at the head spring, and boats all along the way.

It took a little work to present the river in as close to its natural state as possible. The first evening I stayed on shore and twisted the polarizer just enough to reveal the eel grass…..

I found a tributary and decided to paddle up it. There was sign that said it was private property, not to trespass. I wasn’t happy. I know there’s got to be a beautiful head spring at the end of this run. I didn’t need any trouble with the lawman, but I did come up with a good stanza to that well known song by Woodie Guthrie.

As I went paddling, I saw…

The bus driver fled and was being sought. Mr Faustin said the cause of the accident was unclear……(no kidding?)

The injured were being treated at a hospital in Gonaives, about 60 miles (100 kilometres) north-west of the capital Port-au-Prince.

Not a terrorist attack like everywhere, the press, the politics are hiding the ugly truth

David Paulides – ‘Ridiculous’ High number of missing kids in Oregon

Posted in 2017, Uncategorized with tags , , on March 11, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Every month in almost every state people go into the wilderness and don’t come out”

Every year, hundreds of people are reported missing in national parks and forests, many of them children.

Most of those people are eventually found, whether alive or dead, but a small percentage of cases, including some in Oregon, are never solved.

The mysteries those cases present has one man wondering if there’s a common denominator behind the disappearances that leave search and rescue crews scratching their heads.

David Paulides is forever rifling through newspaper archives and badgering federal agencies for public records. He’s discovered more than 400 cases of people who wandered into the wilderness and never came back.

“Every month in almost every state people go into the wilderness and don’t come out,” Paulides said. “There are so many missing kids in Oregon, it’s ridiculous.” (See video here)
