When you can’t sleep and need to count sheep to drift off, try wrapping your brain one of these eerie glowing lambs from South America. Scientists from the Animal Reproduction Institute of Uruguay (IRAUy) have genetically engineered nine animals to light up under UV light by incorporating a gene from the Aequorea victoria jellyfish . The research is intended to help easily identify genetically modified processes in animals.

Comments Off on Researchers Find Potential UV Exposure Risk from Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

CFL bulb photo from Shutterstock A study by the State University of New York at Stony Brook revealed that manufacturing flaws in some compact fluorescent bulbs can lead to potential UV exposure . Compact fluorescent bulbs, which have become popular in recent years as the result of new federal efficiency standards , are an energy-efficient alternative to the common incandescent bulb. But due to manufacturing flaws, they could expose skin to the damaging effects of UV light, potentially leading to skin cell damage and possibly cancer .

Blueware Vases is a collection of white and blue ceramics inspired by traditional British Blue Willow housewares . Handmade by design Studio Glithero , this violet earthenware captures the delicate silhouettes from flowers and weeds found between the cracks of London’s pavements streets. Far from being painted, they were ‘magically’ colored by cyanotypes , a process of capturing direct impressions of botanical specimens on earthenware, using chemicals sensitive to light.
