Here is my transcript.


You’ve tried everything to lose weight – portion control or fasting, liquid diets and even eating meals on the trade meal. Now a new study suggested that maybe you should try turning off the lights because at least in mice, exposure to light at night leads to weight gain. The work appeared in the proceedings of the National Academy Sciences. Obesity is an epidemic. Maybe it’s because we eat too much and spend too much time on our seats. But another fact could be that these days we’re never really in the dark. Street lamps and indoor light sources now brighten our night and that light pollution could be messing up with our circadian rhythms, which control not only sleep but metabolism. In fact mutant mice that have no circadian clock tend to be chunky. To test the connection between photons and fat, scientists took mice and lit up their cages and they found that mice that were exposed to even dim light at night were chubbier than mice who spent their evening in the dark though they all ate the same amount. The fat mice snagged more when they were less active, perhaps failing to burn off those calories. So maybe skip the night light, especially the one that lights up when you open up the frig.

If Alice is smart, and Bob's even smarter. Working together would A, be twice as smart. B, be half as smart. Or C formal task force and get nothing done. According to new research, the answer is none of the above. It would actually depend on how well they get along. What makes a group good at what it does, a team of scientists put their collective heads together and divided volunteers into groups of two to five. And they ask these groups to perform a variety of tasks from brainstorming answers to questions like what can you do with brick to team typing block of complicated task. But the researchers found is the intelligent of individual group members was not a good predictor of how well the group as a whole performs. The team did best rated high in social sensitivity, their members in directed well, took turn speaking, and included more females in groups that did poorly, the study of geroscience. So if you are looking for a recipe for group smart, don't automatically reach for the biggest brain. Try adding some heart. And at least one person knows how to do with the brick.

The correction I found from HERE:

Songbirds sing to entice mates, and the timing of those songs is often regulated by sunlight. But that timing is getting thrown off—by streetlamps. That’s according to research published in the journal Current Biology. [Bart Kempenaers et al, http://bit.ly/aEP3pu]

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Germany studied five common forest-breeding songbirds. Males in four species started singing significantly earlier in the morning if they lived near streetlights than did their deep forest-dwelling kin. And for one species studied, males were more successful at attracting extra-pair mates. Those are females other than the male’s primary nest-mate with whom they sire offspring.

Sounds great, right? Well, the researchers say, not so fast. They note that the males may be weaker, because they get less sleep due to the lights. And so females who used to take early singing as a sign of virility may be attracted to weaker males who simply can’t sleep because the lights are on. The early singing may also put the males at greater risk of predation.

The researchers say we don’t understand the long-term effects. But they add a hopeful note—companies are developing new streetlamps with reduced light pollution, which could also help songbirds get their z’s.

Hi, I found your correction news from HERE FYI.

Arrrrr. Today, September 19th, is international talk like a pirate day. No, seriously, yo ho ho, check the web. Ya know, matey, anyone could be a pirate, all ya needed was a proper disrespect for authority and a willingness to be seasick months at a time.But to be a truly successful pirate and not just the son of a biscuit eater, well, ya had to know a bit of science, too.

A good pirate captain had to know the astronomy to navigate by the stars. He had to be acquainted with meteorology and know enough fluid dynamics to make sure he didn’t overload his ship with booty. And he needed the psychological skills to manage his literally motley crew.

Your average pirate ship required a buccaneer surgeon to treat stab wounds and cat o’ nine tails slashes, and a swashbucklin’ general practitioner to make sure the men had the right diet to ward off scurvy with foods rich in vitamin C. Plus, your pirate optometrist supplied the men with eye patches. And of course, advanced veterinary practice kept your pirate parrots in fine fettle. So ya see, me hearty, no matter what your chosen path, science is sure to give you a hand. Or at least a hook .

Hi Jackson,

Good job to catch the words "treadmill" and "fridge."

I checked the correct transcript(clickHere) and found that there are two words that both of us failed to transcribe correctly:
1. The fat mice "snacked" more when they were less active.
2. that light pollution could be "messing with" our circadian rhythms

Hi Janet,
Your transcript is pretty good. I can only find few minor discrepancies in it. Good for you! :ssmile:
Note: Bear in mind that it's my version of transcript, not the one from Scientific American. There must be errors in it.

Dylan,

You're unlucky. This one is probably the most difficult among all, partly due to the "pirate" accent and partly due to these "pirate term". So don't feel crestfallen. You've done pretty well, actually. :ssmile:

Here are few of the terms:

Son of a biscuit eater
: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=son+of+a+biscuit+eater, http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_son_of_a_biscuit_eater_mean
buccaneer: someone who attacks ships at sea and steals from them [= pirate]
cat o' nine tails: a whip made of nine knotted strings, used in the past for punishing people
swashbuckling [adj]: relating to adventures in which people do brave, exciting things and fight against their enemies with swords

Hi Kooper:
Thanks for your kindly comfort and encouragement.
I'm sure no matter which topics are all difficult to me,fortunately I'm thick-skinned all the time.
So I'll try to keep learning from all you guys and be no crestfallen.
Hope one day my english could be as good as you~~
