Color-changing hair dye responds to your environment

Creator Lauren Bowker tells Wired that the dye is safe. It uses "less toxic" materials, such as irritants that are wrapped in polymers to minimize the damage to your hair and scalp. In theory, it shouldn't be any more harmful than the dye you buy at the store. Fire still needs to be refined and fully assessed for safety before you can buy it. However, this isn't one of those far-off projects that will take many years to reach shelves -- there's already production-oriented testing underway. If everything goes smoothly, you could soon have a hair color evolves from moment to moment, not just whenever you feel up to a dyeing session. Original link Original author: Fingas

Global 'fish wars' could break out due to climate change

The twin threats of climate change and growing nationalism could lead to an outbreak of conflicts over fish stocks – like the infamous Cod Wars between the UK and Iceland – that could threaten the global supply of food and “decimate” marine ecosystems, experts have warned. Speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual meeting in Boston on Thursday, a panel of experts said that with the right management and international co-operation the number of fish in the sea and the amount caught by fishing fleets could increase over the coming decades. However, they warned rising temperatures were prompting many species to move to different parts of the sea, which could threaten some individual countries’ economies and access to food. And this, fuelled by the growth in nationalist sentiments, could see a new “era of fish wars” as countries compete for stocks. While individual states might emerge as the winner...

The geekiest signs from the 'Stand up for Science' rally

From Sunday's "Stand Up For Science" rally at Copley Square in Boston. Image: Tomas Green/Twitter By Maria Gallucci 2017-02-19 20:25:51 UTC At a rally full of scientists, things were bound to get a bit geeky. On Sunday, thousands scientists and supporters gathered in Boston's Copley Square to "stand up for science" under the Trump administration.  Their signs were, predictably, quite clever.  Many rally-goers were in Boston for the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest general scientific society. "You don't usually see these kinds of rallies and demonstrations at scientific meetings," Kishore Hari, a chemist-turned-science educator, said ahead of Sunday's rally.  "It's a sign that scientists are feeling not just under attack, but like the integrity of their work is in question," he said.  Scientists at the rally voiced concerns about what they say is President Donald Trump's "anti-science" administration. Trump has...

'Science for the people': researchers challenge Trump outside US conference

Hundreds of scientists, environmental activists and others rallied in Boston on Sunday to protest what they call the “direct attack” of Donald Trump and Republicans on research, scientific institutions and facts themselves. Gathering in Boston’s Copley Square, outside the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, several scientists gave speeches to a crowd holding signs shaped like beakers and reading “Stand up for science”. The speeches reflected a sea change in the culture of many labs and universities, where many researchers long maintained that good scientific work could speak for itself. But at the AAAS conference, scientists this week have discussed political activism, the psychology of “fake news” , and how to protect climate science from hostile governments. “Scientists who are usually happy in the corner of their labs are speaking, going to rallies and marches and writing blogs,” said Astrid Caldas, a climate scientist and...
