Ocean heat is driving a global coral bleaching event, and it could be the worst on record | CNN

“Coral reefs around the world are experiencing a mass bleaching event as the climate crisis drives record-breaking ocean heat, two scientific bodies announced Monday — with some experts warning this could become the worst bleaching period in recorded history. More than 54% of the world’s coral reef areas have experienced bleaching in the past year … a joint statement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and The International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) said. ‘It is likely that this event will surpass the previous peak of 56.1% soon,’ Derek Manzello, the coordinator for NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch program, said in an email to CNN. ‘The percentage of reef areas experiencing bleaching-level heat stress has been increasing by roughly 1% per week.’”

Scientists 'couldn't believe' first of its kind evolutionary accident | Newsweek

“In a first, scientists have stumbled across a natural protein that follows a mathematical pattern of self-similarity called a fractal. The peculiar protein changes our understanding of self-assembly in nature and demonstrates the impressive potential of molecular evolution. Fractals are a visual expression of a repeating pattern or formula that starts out simple and gets progressively more complex. These patterns can be found in nature, such as in the leaves of a fern or the spirals of a seashell. But fractals have never been seen at a molecular level. Until now.”

A Slovenia-based company called OZ-IT recently announced PaintCam Eve, a line of autonomous property monitoring devices that will utilize motion detection and facial recognition to guard against supposed intruders. … Eve will protect owners from burglars, unwanted animal guests, and any hapless passersby who fail to heed its ‘zero compliance, zero tolerance’ warning.
