  Increased ocean acidity seems to affect clownfish behavior. In more acidic water, some odors didn't drive away the clownfish larvae.    Locusts tend to form swarms once the neurotransmitter serotonin is released. While in the swarm, individual locusts change from a green color to black and yellow.    Located between Argentina and Chile, Monte Fitz Roy peak is named after Robert FitzRoy, the captain of the HMS Beagle.  Rising ocean acidity — sometimes dubbed the evil twin of global warming ...

I was unfolding into my morning yoga routine the other morning while listening to the TV news. It's not the purest form of the practice, but it's acceptable on a busy day.

"Health care reform is the key to our country's fiscal future," said OMB Director Orszag, justifying the White House's $634-billion budget item best he ... [full story]

"I bought my mom a Yorkie for her birthday." "Yorkie, huh? Cute breed. How old is your mom?" "She's 92." And so began the story that, all told, included four trips to the hospital in five months for Mom, as she repeatedly tripped over, tangled with and stepped on her rambunctious gift. Happy birthday! The potential benefits to pairing the elderly with pets are immeasurable, but clearly there are risks to consider. Large dogs can ... [full story]

Q: Since retiring, my husband stresses out easily. Before going to bed, he makes a daily detailed "to-do" list. During his career, he managed a large staff.

Should I suggest he go back to work? A: During ... [full story]

Q: What happens if I put a darkish plaid wallpaper on the ceiling of my husband's study? It's his idea — he says he wants a "cozy" environment — but I've always heard that ceilings should only be white, unless you live in the Sistine Chapel. What do you advise?   Down with convention, and up with a dark, reflective ceiling that makes the room feel cozy but not claustrophobic. Photo courtesy of Malke Naz Freidouni.  A: ... [full story]

The highly competitive job market may cause grads to continue with school, work with no pay or look for jobs overseas, according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, an outplacement agency. Or some grads will most likely need to move home with their parents ... [full story]
