Sharks use light emitting organs to become invisible, and attract mates- expert at a Catholic University relays a study conducted

They may look like American Stealth fighters or bombers, and fly as fast through the water as one, but now researchers have discovered that sharks can do something that fireflies are known for, they can glow. The glow mimics the surrounding light from the surface, making the shark effectively invisible, and stealthily unseen by predator and prey alike.

The glow makes 10% of shark species which emit it: invisible at the depths at which they swim to animals below. Obviously, a shadow blocks the light from the surface, going down, so the sharks emit a glow from their underside. A specific species of shark tested: velvet belly lantern shark, adjusts the glow according to external light, a study has discovered, using sharks caught in Bergen Norway, says the Discovery news article hosted by MSNBC.

As the pelvic, holding the sexual organs of the sharks are especially illuminated, it is thought that the sharks could use illumination to attract a mate, in addition to being a hunting tool.

British TV Channel Airs Abortion Ad

British Channel 4 aired an abortion ad for Marie Stopes , an abortion provider, says Vatican radio (Radio Vaticana) and many other sources.

If abortion were really some sort of required right in a civilized society, why would it need to be advertised. Nothing is more revolting than abortion, it wrecks women's lives, it wrecks babies lives, it wrecks fathers' lives, and mothers' lives. It wrecks men's lives.

I am all for progress, but not in this direction. A television ad is wilful profiteering from what any sane mind calls infanticide.

Marianne Kalabakas: "I am a Nerd and so are you…well maybe, ask the person looking at you."

While there are some errors involving formatting and spelling, you'll have to forgive Mari, she's writing Exams. Marianne Kalabakas is studying law with me, we come from slightly different cultures, and religions, and have different political perspectives of the world, but we both often value the other's opinion. We both sit in the front of class with our Netbook, and dictaphone each in the ready, and we both enjoy intelligence from ourselves and others.

I certainly would consider it hell to be some of the people I dislike, for whatever reason, and it is more than with the question of what is nerdy.

A nerd is one of a thousand epithets used on suspecting and unsuspecting victims.

It is a power word used to take control away from another, although oddly, sometimes people use it to compliment another, or use the work geek instead. Both words disgust me, and I certainly would never associate with them.

The point Mari makes, and accidentally (due to formatting error) makes twice is this: one should be cautious at rash judgement. I agree to an extent, although I do believe there is a place for judgement, even rash judgement until we gain additional knowledge, but that we must act, knowing just how certain or uncertain we actually are of a situation, or any other thing!

While cringing at the very image of a nerd, I did find this a notable read. Just skim over the spelling errors, without spell check, while writing exams, sometimes spelling in an article is imperfect.

South African Catholic "Accuracy without harm!" is the current gunship of the News division, placing important stories in context, and putting important information out to the public. The news, theological, and fact checking etc search engines are seen as vital to this service, which follows a more scholarly approach to news, often ensuring it uses multiple and diverse sources of information. South African Catholic Is edited by Marc Aupiais. it is read in the Vatican, United Nations, and in the United States of America House of Representatives. It is also read by major news services globally.

It prides itself on independence, from negative influences, and has in the past come into conflict with church officials, including at the Vatican, and the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference, for publishing stories and accusations which it was asked to shelve.

It has been called paranoid, and an overly fluffy Valentines' Day teddy bear, by Gunther, the Editor of the Southern Cross, after it reported on the support the Southern Cross gave to legalized abortion and on what has been labelled an anti-magisterial bias held by the paper, sold in the parishes of the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference, although the references could also have been directed towards Catholic Culture, it was likely intended to refer to this site.

Fr Chris Townsend, Information Officer of the SACBC, in dismay, called South African Catholic "Sensationalist", after it broke a story about the Caritas Internationalis Secretary General, at the time, involving accusations she made about the media and the United Nations, involving Canadian organization Development and Peace, and abortion.

(All information placed here, is done with proof, one may note that I, editor of this site have placed negative reviews up, this is because I believe these reflect positively on our service, and it's importance to the world at large!)
