Highly sensitive detection of small, deep tumors for early diagnosis and surgical interventions remains a challenge for conventional imaging modalities. Second-window near-infrared light (NIR2, 950–1,400 nm) is promising for in vivo fluorescence imaging due to deep tissue penetration and low tissue autofluorescence. With their intrinsic fluorescence in the NIR2 regime...
New Attempt To Claim More Extreme Weather Not Supported By Data http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/new-attempt-to-claim-more-extreme-weather-not-supported-by-data By Paul Homewood http://www.telegraph.co.uk/topics/weather/11084066/Winter-weather-is-growing-more-extreme-say-scientists.html The Telegraph carry a report on the latest piece of work from Phil Jones and co. I have not tracked down the original paper yet, but this is what the Telegraph have to say: Britons should [...]

Swiss News Weekly Calls IPCC Lead Author Thomas Stocker ‘A Butler For Politicians’! Scientists Growing Shriller
Swiss News Weekly Calls IPCC Lead Author Thomas Stocker “A Butler For Politicians”! Scientists Growing Shriller http://notrickszone.com/2014/09/10/swiss-news-weekly-calls-ipcc-lead-author-thomas-stocker-a-butler-for-politicians-scientists-getting-shrill/ As climate observations continue their now obscene divergence from the earlier IPCC model projections, some media outlets are becoming harsher in their criticism of a science that increasingly appears corrupt and politicized. Moreover climate scientists are looking ever [...]
Polar Bear expert: ‘Polar bears miss the message on global warming’ – ‘Fat, healthy bears are still common and many of the assumptions used by computer models to predict future disasters have turned out to be wrong’
“Polar bears miss the message on global warming” – my article in RANGE Magazine http://polarbearscience.com/2014/08/26/polar-bears-miss-the-message-on-global-warming-my-article-in-range-magazine Here’s an excerpt of my article “Polar bears miss the message on global warming,” just out in the Fall 2014 issue of RANGE Magazine.

Has the tide turned on polar bears as icons of global warming? http://polarbearscience.com/2014/09/01/has-the-tide-turned-on-polar-bears-as-icons-of-global-warming The CBC in Canada is pretty much a mirror image of the BBC in the UK, ABC in Australia and PBS in the US. So you might appreciate my shock at the almost unbelievable balance contained in the recently broadcasted CBC documentary, [...]

Michael Mann caught telling a ‘porky’ to the court (again) in legal filings http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/09/11/michael-mann-caught-telling-a-porky-to-the-court-again-in-legal-filings After being caught out claiming he was a “Nobel Prize recipient” in his original complaint (then having to retract it), it seems Mann and his lawyers just don’t have the good sense to know when to stop. In this case Mann [...]
Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl: ‘One-half of CO2 doubling achieved…& Detectable impacts on the climate are yet to be seen’
One-half of CO2 doubling achieved http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LuboMotlsReferenceFrame/~3/j9RvNVuz-JA/one-half-of-co2-doubling-achieved.html Detectable impacts on the climate are yet to be seenWhen the CO2 level in the atmosphere surpassed 400 ppm a short time ago, many alarmists would celebrate this symbolic achievement. Oh, the CO2 concentration is so high! It’s a signal from the heaven, a shot from the Aurora telling [...]
Biologist: Polar Bears are NOT threatened by climate change – It’s ‘crazy to speculate about a climate future 50 or 100 years in advance…then declare a crisis because the guess was they won’t do very well’
