Tropical Depression 08E (TD8E) has weakened to a remnant low pressure system over Mexico. TD 8E's remnants were raining on Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta at 10 a.m. EDT (7 a.m. PDT) today and the bulk of the heavier rainfall was off-shore.
A NOAA GOES-11 satellite image from Sept. 1 at 9:45 a.m. EDT showed the remnant clouds of Tropical Depression 8E as a rounded swirl of clouds hugging Mexico's southwestern coastline. There were some higher, stronger thunderstorms visible in the infrared image that appeared whiter and brighter than the surrounding clouds. Those higher clouds were around the center of TD8E's circulation. The GOES-11 image was created by the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued their last warning for the remnants of TD8E at 11 p.m. EDT on August 31. At that time, it was about 130 miles (209 km) east-southeast of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico near 19.8 North and 103.8 West. Its maximum sustained winds were down to 20 knots (23 mph/37 kmh) and it was moving to the northwest at 10 knots (12 mph/19 kmh).
On the morning of Sept. 1, 2011, TD8E's remnants were still raining on the southwestern coast of Mexico. As much as 4 to 6 inches (10-15cm) of rain are expected over the coastal areas of the states of Guerrero, Michoacan and Colima.
The NHC noted that there's a low chance, just 10 percent, that TD8E will regenerate.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
