One year after groundbreaking, desert research center takes shape on the Israeli-Jordanian border
While ethnic conflict in the Middle East continues to dominate the headlines, a unique collaboration between Arab and Israeli scientists is quietly taking shape along the border between Jordan and Israel. Launched just one year ago, the Bridging the Rift (BTR) project now includes some 40 researchers from Israel, Jordan and the United States who have come together to establish the first scientific institute jointly operated by Israel and one of its Arab neighbors.

Chemicals in apples could reduce the risk of breast cancer, Cornell study in rats suggests
An apple a day can help keep breast cancer away, says a new Cornell study. Tumor incidence was reduced by 17, 39 and 44 percent and the number of tumors was reduced by up to 61 percent in rats fed the equivalent of one, three or six apples a day, respectively. (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, March 2005).

UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth
New keys to understanding the evolution of life on Earth may be found in the microbes and minerals vented from below the ocean floor, say scientists at UCSB. Interest in the microbes of the Earth's crust is high because the strategies by which they survive may be similar to the earliest strategies of life on Earth, and perhaps also on other planetary bodies.

New dinosaur raptor found; First in Southern Hemisphere
Scientists at Ohio State University and the Argentine Museum of Natural History have identified a new species of raptor dinosaur from fossils found in Patagonia -- the very southern tip of South America. It is the first raptor ever found in the Southern Hemisphere, but compared to other raptors, Neuquenraptor argentinus wasn't much of a standout.

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron
Injecting iron into some major regions of the oceans can stimulate the growth of diatoms and other phytoplankton, but something odd occurs as these tiny marine plants continue to grow. They begin to starve in the midst of plenty, acting as though iron is in short supply. It could be that iron sets off a kind of chemical warfare in the marine ecosystem.
