The argument that a rocky outcrop showed evidence of life going back 3. A team of scientists led by Martin Whitehouse, a professor of geosciences at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, agrees the ancient signatures of life are present in the Torngat mountain region. His team looked at the same outcrops as the Japanese but came up with a differing view of the geology and published its findings in the journal Precambrian Research in January.
The area in dispute is in the Saglek Bay area, at the southern end of the Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of the oldest continental crusts on the planet are exposed to the surface. Whitehouse said igneous formations created when molten rock cools and hardens are key to establishing the age of life enclosed in sedimentary rock. The other issue is that there are other samples, taken 20 years earlier but still considered valid, that date the rock to younger geological time periods, the geologist added.
His team plans to head further up the coast this summer to search for older rocks in the ancient geological core known as the North American Craton. By Canadian Press. Missing Man. Man arrested, large amount of pharmaceutical drugs seized in Grande Prairie. Aug 20, Aug 17, Aug 13,

Dog owners tell their vets that Labrador retrievers are always interested in food, and new work shows there might be a biological truth to the claim. A May 3 study in Cell Metabolism links a gene alteration specifically found in Labs and related flat coat retrievers to greater food-motivated behavior, describing the first gene associated with canine obesity. The variation also occurs more frequently in Labradors chosen as assistance dogs, and might explain why these canines seem more trainable with food rewards.
Labrador retrievers are more interested in food and tend to be more obese than other breeds, regardless of owner. Starting with an initial cohort of 15 obese and 18 lean Labrador retrievers, Raffan and her colleagues selected three obesity-related genes to examine, all of which were known to affect weight in humans. This first analysis turned up a variation in a gene called POMC.
In more of the obese dogs, a section of DNA was scrambled at the end of the gene. In humans, common variants in POMC have been associated with differences in body weight. In a larger sample of Labrador retrievers, Raffan and her colleagues discovered a host of canine behaviors associated with the POMC deletion. Not all Labs with the DNA variation were obese and some were obese without having the mutation , but in general the deletion was associated with greater weight and, according to an owner survey, affected dogs were more food-motivated–they begged their owners for food more frequently, paid more attention at mealtimes, and scavenged for scraps more often.
On average, the POMC deletion was associated with a 2 kg weight increase. Of 38 other breeds, the deletion only showed up again in flat coat retrievers, related to Labrador retrievers, and weight and behavior were similarly affected.
