Are we going under the assumption of water as a molecule or water as the liquid form of the molecule? In molecular form I would say gallons of water. There is a rock known as serpentine and water is part of it's structure (unfortunately (or fortunately?) we don't have the ability to isolate it), but apparently there is enough rocks like serpentine, that there are three pacific oceans of water locked into their structure.

A British geneticist says that the yeti existed and was a hybrid between a polar and a brown bear.

RNA controls splicing during gene expression, further evidence of 'RNA world' origin in modern life. - Phys.org

RNA is the key functional component of spliceosomes, molecular machines that control how genes are expressed, report scientists from the University of Chicago online, Nov. 6 in Nature. The discovery establishes that RNA, not protein, is responsible for catalyzing this fundamental biological process and enriches the hypothesis that life on earth began in a world based solely on RNA.

"Two of the three major processes in eukaryotic gene expression—splicing and translation—are now shown to be catalyzed by RNA," said Jonathan Staley, PhD, associate professor of molecular genetics and cell biology at the University of Chicago and co-corresponding author on the study. "The eukaryotic gene expression pathway is more of an RNA-based pathway than protein-based."

Ice Tsunami.Glacier like ice moving across Mille Lacs damaging houses Minnesota seems to be alive! - YouTube

This is really neat home video. Basically intense winds on the other side of the lake are shifting the entire ice sheet. I believe some of the forces here are the same used to form glaciers over time but at a smaller and faster rate witnessed here.

Stephen Hawking says that we should ditch our concept of the black hole and talk about "grey holes" instead.

Scientists in Japan showed stem cells can now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid.

BBC News - Stem cell 'major discovery' claimed

She added: "It's exciting to think about the new possibilities these findings offer us, not only in regenerative medicine, but cancer as well."
