As images of lava rivers engulfing homes in Hawaii reach mainland viewers, Nevadans' thoughts turn to our region's own volcanic history, and wonder: Could it happen here?

Head south from Reno on U.S. 395 and you'll eventually drive (literally) into the 20-by-10-mile maw of an old and likely dying super volcano, or skirt the more recently active volcanoes of Mono Lake or Mammoth Mountain. And just 100 miles northwest of Reno lies Mount Lassen, the 10,500-foot volcano that the U.S. Geological Survey holds in the same risk category as Hawaii's currently erupting Kilauea.

Scientists in developing nations plan to step up research into dimming sunshine to curb climate change, hoping to judge if a man made chemical sunshade would be less risky than a harmful rise in global temperatures.

Solar geo-engineering studies would be helped by a new $400,000 fund from the Open Philanthropy Project, a foundation backed by Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of Facebook, and his wife, Cari Tuna, they wrote. "The fund could help scientists in developing nations study regional impacts of solar geo-engineering such as on droughts, floods or monsoons," said Andy Parker, a co-author and project director of the Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative.

Wild bison grazing on sunflower-studded prairie at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge are in business - as greeters of millions of travelers.

Federal wildlife refuge managers also this summer doubled the fenced space at the refuge, north of Denver, for their bison herd, which grew this year, with 18 calves, to a record 122. The feds plan to import 25 more genetically robust bison in October. And wild bison behavior, such as raging bulls battling for females and tearing through fences, is on the rise.

An active compound in marijuana called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has been found to promote the removal of toxic clumps of amyloid beta protein in the brain, which are thought to kickstart the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

The finding supports the results of previous studies that found evidence of the protective effects of cannabinoids, including THC, on patients with neurodegenerative disease. Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer's, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells," says one of the team, David Schubert from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California.

Aluminum is not an essential plant element and can be harmful to crop growth. One of my young friends called this week and we talked about what we would do to raise our crop yields. He had tried gypsum but did not notice results.

Fly Ash Gypsum from scrubbing coal powered electric plant stacks is helping keep fly ash our of our landfills and onto our soils. Are we scrubbing the aluminum off the clay particles for better soil air and water movement and less damage from aluminum? This is probably ten years old but I get these questions almost every day.

According to a press release on Alexis Bortell's Facebook page, the 11-year-old is suing the federal government. Alexis Bortell is a self-proclaimed medical marijuana advocate who was born and raised in North Texas before moving to Colorado.

"Most Texas Legislators don't seem to care enough to fight for patients, so I will do it," Bortell said. "I am only asking to be treated like everyone else and no one is listening to patients like me. Maybe now they will." Her hope with this suit is to have medical cannabis reclassified.
