Mr. Murata’s stunning statement should be front page news everywhere around the world. Why? Because he’s right. Scientists are increasingly alarmed that the kelp forests world wide are dying out at a disturbing pace.

Serum samples were collected as part of routine herd health monitoring from calves aged between one and seven days. Multivariate linear and logistic regression models were used to assess the effect of each variable on the test result and failure of passive transfer as determined using a cut off point for each diagnostic test. Colostrum pasteurisation and calving area were not significantly associated with passive transfer, whereas increased time spent in the calving pen was consistently associated with a detrimental effect.

The current projected peak brightness for Comet Q2 Lovejoy is +4th magnitude right around mid January.
