Tiny Shark Has Glowing Belly Tiny sharks about the size of a human hand have a superpower of sorts: their bellies glow, according to new research that also showed these smalleye pygmy sharks use the glow to hide from predators lurking below.

Rain Quicker to Arrive and Dry Up During Global Warming Global warming is revving up the planet's cycle of evaporation and precipitation, making wet places even wetter and dry places dryer, a new study suggests.

I'm the Conservative Voice.
I'm looking to make contact with those who might use my skill.
