Yosemite's Tunnel View is a favorite for visitors-especially those who plan to just tool around on asphalt and not actually get into all that wilderness/hiking business.

But honchos at Yosemite saw room for improvement: They removed six view-blocking trees, built a viewing spot, and added other amenities to a scenic vista made famous by Ansel Adams and countless other photographers.

Student organizations, city officials and now the county parks department are all pushing to include more organic and locally grown food into the diets of students and residents across the city of Madison and Dane County.

As part of its Organic Agriculture Lands initiative, Dane County will lease 24 acres of county park land to an organic grower, according to a Dane County statement. The county also has a community garden at another park, and hopes to open up another fresh food market in Madison, the statement said.

Opponents of a Kern County ordinance that would outlaw storefront medical marijuana cooperatives and the sale of edible pot products have blocked the law from taking effect.

The Kern County Elections Division on Wednesday verified that Kern Citizens for Patients' Rights had collected 17,350 valid signatures from registered Kern County voters. That's the number required to block the bans. Elections workers reached the 17,350 number Wednesday and stopped counting. About 2,662 of the original 26,326 signatures submitted remained uncounted, a cushion of support Kern Citizens didn't need.

Dr. Michael Ciampi took a step this spring that many of his fellow physicians would describe as radical.

The family physician stopped accepting all forms of health insurance. In early 2013, Ciampi sent a letter to his patients informing them that he would no longer accept any kind of health coverage, both private and government-sponsored. Given that he was now asking patients to pay for his services out of pocket, he posted his prices on the practice's website.

A paradoxical phenomenon involving more melt water may explain the recent expansion of Antarctic sea ice, scientists tell Nature Geoscience journal.

Climate scientists have been intrigued by observations that Antarctic sea ice shows a small but statistically significant expansion of about 1.9% per decade since 1985, while sea ice in the Arctic has been shrinking over past decades.

An extensive study of tree growth rings suggest that rise and fall of past civilisations are linked to sudden shifts in climatic conditions.

"Looking back on 2,500 years, there are examples where climate change impacted human history," co-author Ulf Buntgen, a paleoclimatologist at the Swiss Federal Research Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape, told the Science website.

Schemes to tackle climate change could prove disastrous for billions of people, but might be required for the good of the planet, scientists say. That is the conclusion of a new set of studies into what's become known as geo-engineering.

This is the so far unproven science of intervening in the climate to bring down temperatures. These projects work by, for example, shading the Earth from the Sun or soaking up carbon dioxide. Ideas include aircraft spraying out sulphur particles at high altitude to mimic the cooling effect of volcanoes or using artificial "trees" to absorb CO2.

As far back as 3,000 BCE Chinese physicians studied their patients fingernails for telltale signs of illness.

Thousands of years later, American country doctors, tending to their patients in small towns and farm villages, routinely checked patients' eyes, the surface of the tongue, and the appearance of the fingernails. Some knowledgeable practitioners still check these things, although most that do are doctors that practice holistic medicine. Why did the ancients and the old-time country doctors take such an interest in their patients' fingernails?

Kingman, Arizona, June 27, 2014 - On Wednesday, June 25, Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward held a public forum to discuss public concerns regarding white vapor trails in the skies.

Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) representatives Sherri Zendri and Beth Hager were on hand to answer questions from local residents who presented studies, personal research, and blood samples they claim prove that planes are spraying chemicals. Senator Ward stated the meeting was a response to "relentless" communication from constituents who are concerned with vapor trails commonly called contrails or condensation trails. However, residents say the trails are not standard contrails but rather "chemtrails" being sprayed as part of a global program of weather manipulation. One resident claimed the difference between contrails and chemical trails is easy to spot because the contrails are short and dissipate quickly, while the chemtrails are long, dragged out, and criss-cross the sky.
