The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of the remnants of Cyclone Paul over the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia at 04:45 UTC (12:45 a.m. EDT) today, April 1, 2010. The image showed that most of the clouds associated with the low were on the southern side of the circulation and over land.

Another instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite also got a good look at Paul's remnants as the satellite flew overhead. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder, or AIRS instrument captured an infrared image of Paul's cold remnant thunderstorm cloud tops. The infrared image, which shows temperatures, indicated that the strongest thunderstorms were still over land in the Northern Territory. The image also showed very warm land to Paul's west and south.
The only warnings in effect are for the coastal waters, where there is a wind warning posted from Coastal Nhulunbuy to the Queensland border. The warning means that winds from the west-southwest will be gusting to 20-30 knots (23- 34 mph/ 37-55 kph), easing below 25 knots (28 mph/46 kph) during Friday morning (local Darwin time). Seas are expected to be as high as 3 meters (9 feet), but the conditions are expected to ease on Friday.
On April 1 at 11:15 p.m. CST Darwin time (8:45 a.m. EDT) Paul's remnants were located close to the Northern Territory/Queensland border in the southern Gulf of Carpentaria coast. The low is expected to track inland overnight and continue to weaken over the southern Top End during the next few days.
Paul is now not expected to redevelop into a tropical cyclone.

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...
