Simply speaking, if we can avoid regions in the atmosphere where
the so-called non-CO2 emissions have the greatest impacts on
climate change, we can significantly reduce this climate change,"
he explained.

With colleagues from five countries, Grewe is part of an EU
project that has been evaluating data from 800 daily
trans-Atlantic flights. As a result, he believes that "a
significant reduction in the climate impact of aviation is
possible at a relatively low cost."

Replacing jet fuel made from fossil fuels with more renewable
sources would also be a fundamental step on the road to
sustainable air travel.

In this regard, the production of jet fuel from biomass - or even
from wind and solar electricity - is widely developed and tested,
and is generally possible. In the latter case, climate-neutral
electricity is produced with the aid of electrolysis from water
hydrogen (power-to-gas), and in a further step, with the addition
of CO2 kerosine (power-to-liquids).

The production of this jet fuel on the shores of the sun-drenched
and windy countries of the world is "economically
cost-effective," said Norman Gerhardt of the Fraunhofer Institute
for Wind Energy and Energy Systems Engineering.

However, capacity for large-scale production would have to be
significantly built out, and he doubts that produced quantities
of such fuel would sufficiently match current demand.

Paying for climate impact

Integrating air traffic into emissions trading could be another
important way to achieve more climate-friendly air travel. One
proposal suggest that by 2020, all airlines should pay $10
(around 9 euros) per ton of CO2 emitted, but that the price of
these pollution permits should increase to $80 dollars per ton by
2030.

From 2025, other climate effects of air traffic such as cloud
formation would also be included in the emissions trading price.

Another important instrument for more climate protection is the
reduction of environmentally harmful subsidies.

According to data provided by Germany's Federal Environment
Agency (UBA), Germany subsidizes air flights to the tune of 12
billion euros per year - mainly by exempting ticket prices from
sales tax and jet fuel from energy tax.

The UBA recommends that the government abolish such benefits.
This would also level the playing field for other, more
climate-friendly modes of transport such as bus, car and train.

If these subsidies were slashed and income taxes reduced instead,
every worker in Germany would have more than 270 euros more to
take home each year.

To protect the climate, the UBA also recommends that people avoid
flying. "Take advantage of alternatives to flying: use different
modes of transport, vacation closer to home, or use video
conferencing for business meetings rather than traveling," is
their creed.

Common Baker's Yeast Used to Detect Fungal Pathogens

Faith Lapidus
July 6, 2017

WASHINGTON - Yeast can be used to make beer and bread, and now -
medical diagnoses. Using only baker's yeast, filter paper and a
3-D printed holder, researchers at Columbia University designed
an inexpensive, on-the-spot test to detect major fungal
pathogens.

Diagnosing fungal infections, which kill 2 million people each
year and cost global agriculture more than $60 billion annually,
is a complex, expensive procedure; but, synthetic biology
researchers found a way to replace the specialized equipment with
a simple, one-component biosensor that could cost less than a
penny.

Writing in the journal Science Advances, Nili Ostrov, Miguel
Jimenez, Sonja Billerbeck and their coworkers at Columbia
University's Cornish Lab described how they genetically altered
yeast so it could detect disease-causing pathogens and turn red.
First, they swapped out one of the yeast's receptors for one that
recognized the pathogen Candida albicans, which can cause
life-threatening infections. Then, Ostov explained, "we
engineered into it the tomato pigment for red color called
lycopene, and when the yeast detects the pheromone of other
organisms in its surroundings, it will turn red." The change
happens in fewer than three hours.

Versatile test kit

By replacing the baker's yeast gene with similar genes from other
fungal species, the researchers showed the biosensor could detect
nine additional human, agricultural and food spoilage pathogens.
And the dipstick test detected pathogens in soil, urine, serum
and blood. It was still effective after being stored at room
temperature for 38 weeks.

Simplicity, however, was not the researchers' only goal.

Co-author Miguel Jimenez said, "The idea we had was really, could
we build a diagnostic device that was very, very cheap, basically
the cost of just the sugar that feeds the yeast and that would be
the only expensive reagent required? And we thought if it was so
cheap, people outside the lab could use it all the time for
continuous surveillance of pathogens."

Another advantage is the yeast-based tester could be easily
manufactured in developing countries, because, as Jimenez noted,
"Every country can make beer!"

The researchers have developed a prototype and are working to get
it to places that need it.

Volvo to Go All Electric in 2019

VOA News
July 5, 2017

Swedish carmaker Volvo says it is phasing out the internal
combustion engine in favor of electric motors by 2019.

Volvo, which is Chinese owned, is the first traditional carmaker
to announce the move.

"This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion
engine-powered car," saidet;r ent Håkan Samuelsson in a
statement Wednesday. "People increasingly demand electrified
cars, and we want to respond to our customers'current and future
needs.".

The company, which made a name for itself for emphasizing
passenger safety, said it will offer five electric cars between
2019 and 2021. Three will be branded as Volvo and the others will
be labeled as Polestar, the company's high-end brand.

The company said it will also offer plug-in hybrid or other
hybrid-type cars, some of which do use a small gas engine along
with a rechargeable battery.

The company says it will continue to make pure combustion engine
cars launched prior to 2019.

Geely, the Chinese company which has owned Volvo since 2010, was
likely an impetus for the move as electric vehicles have been
eagerly adopted in China due to high levels of air pollution.

According to Center for Automotive Research at Germany's
University of Duisberg-Essen, the country is home to half the
world's electric cars. China has said it wants 5 million electric
cars on Chinese roads by 2020.

Electric carmaker Tesla recently announced it was in talks to
build a plant near Shanghai.

From BBC Future:

The ghostly radio station that no one seems to run

"MDZhB" has been broadcasting since 1982. No one knows why.

Zaria Gorvett

2 August 2017

In the middle of a Russian swampland, not far from the city of St
Petersburg, is a rectangular iron gate. Beyond its rusted bars is
a collection of radio towers, abandoned buildings and power lines
bordered by a dry-stone wall. This sinister location is the focus
of a mystery which stretches back to the height of the Cold War.

It is thought to be the headquarters of a radio station, "MDZhB",
that no-one has ever claimed to run. Twenty-four hours a day,
seven days a week, for the last three-and-a-half decades, it's
been broadcasting a dull, monotonous tone. Every few seconds it's
joined by a second sound, like some ghostly ship sounding its
foghorn. Then the drone continues.

Once or twice a week, a man or woman will read out some words in
Russian, such as "dinghy" or "farming specialist". And that's it.
Anyone, anywhere in the world can listen in, simply by tuning a
radio to the frequency 4625 kHz.

It's so enigmatic, it's as if it was designed with conspiracy
theorists in mind. Today the station has an online following
numbering in the tens of thousands, who know it affectionately as
"the Buzzer". It joins two similar mystery stations, "the Pip"
and the "Squeaky Wheel". As their fans readily admit themselves,
they have absolutely no idea what they are listening to.

In fact, no-one does. "There's absolutely no information in the
signal," says David Stupples, an expert in signals intelligence
from City University, London.

What's going on?

The frequency is thought to belong to the Russian military,
though they've never actually admitted this. It first began
broadcasting at the close of the Cold War, when communism was in
decline. Today it's transmitted from two locations – the St
Petersburg site and a location near Moscow. Bizarrely, after the
collapse of the Soviet Union, rather than shutting down, the
station's activity sharply increased.

From Southgate Amateur Radio News:

Some millennials are discovering TV antennas

3 August 2017

The Wall Street Journal reports that millennials have unearthed
an amazing hack to get free TV: the Antenna - But is it Legal? it
seems 29% aren't sure

Dan Sisco has discovered a technology that allows him to access
half a dozen major TV channels, completely free.

"I was just kind of surprised that this is technology that
exists," says Mr. Sisco, 28 years old. "It's been awesome. It
doesn't log out and it doesn't skip."

Let's hear a round of applause for TV antennas, often called
"rabbit ears," a technology invented roughly seven decades ago,
long before there was even a cord to be cut, which had been
consigned to the technology trash can along with cassette tapes
and VCRs.

The antenna is mounting a quiet comeback, propelled by a
generation that never knew life before cable television, and who
primarily watch Netflix , Hulu and HBO via the internet.

Almost a third of Americans (29%) are unaware local TV is
available free, according to a June survey by the National
Association of Broadcasters, an industry trade group.

Congressional Representative Karen Bass (D-Calif) while
apparently aware TV antennas existed did not know stations like
CBS were still broadcast during cable blackouts.

Tiny "Sprite" Satellites Deployed, Transmitting on 70 Centimeters

31 July 2017

According to Scientific American, six tiny "Sprite" satellites,
each consisting of a 4-gram circuit board but packed with
electronics, were deployed in late June. The Sprites are the
brainchild of Zac Manchester, KD2BHC.

The Sprites went into low-Earth orbit as secondary payloads on
the Latvian Venta and Italian Max Valier satellites, launched
from India. Signals on 437.325 MHz from at least one of the
exterior-mounted Sprites have been received in California and New
York.

Manchester launched 104 Sprites into orbit in 2014 aboard
KickSat-1, but they failed to deploy.
