Invisible Squid and Crab Blood

Podcast cover
Read more
Using a protein found in a squid called the opalescent inshore squid, scientists recently found a way to change the refractive index of human kidney cells to resemble that of their environment. They’re not quite invisible, but they do become nearly completely transparent when those cells are mixed with a salt solution. Jeff and Anthony discuss what transparent skin might be like and whether they would want it. Then, the blood of horseshoe crabs is used to test for bacterial contamination, thus saving countless lives each year during medical procedures. The only trouble is, we have to catch a quarter of a million horseshoe crabs each year to do this, and then we have to drain their blood. Anthony and Jeff discuss the plight of the valuable horseshoe crab, and where they stand on the use of its blood.

Screw Worms. And Birds. And Junk Journals, Too.

Podcast cover
Read more
What's the deal with birds... is a question Anthony and Jeff often ponder, but it's also the title of a new study released in the Scientific Journal of Research and Reviews - which sounds like a legitimate journal, but is actually a repository of mostly useless garbage. Turns out, there are a lot of predatory journals muddying the waters of scientific reporting. Anthony and Jeff take a look at this disturbing trend and try to figure out a way through it. Then, it's time to get concerned about flesh eating worms! Yep, the US government is actually creating tens of millions of them each week, and you'll be amazing at why. Jeff and Anthony discuss the screwworm, and how it is being battled at the Panama-Columbia border.
