Science News: Will Purr for Treats: How Cats Became Domesticated

A new study has revealed the genetic changes that make kitties snuggle up with humans and purr for treats. Many of the changes have altered the cat's motivation to seek rewards and have changed their fear of new situations, said study co-author Wesley Warren, a geneticist at the Genome Institute at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The team also discovered the genetic changes that make cats keen nighttime hunters and why their noses aren't as sensitive as their canine cousins'. Cats and humans go way back: Some studies suggest cats were first domesticated about 9,000 years ago in the Near East, while others trace cat domestication back to China around 5,000 years ago.

350-Year-Old High Heels, Tea and Goblets Uncovered at Irish CastleDuring a survey of an Irish castle, archaeologist Antoine Giacometti stuck his hand into a wet washing pit beneath the floor. "I put my hand down into this wet, mucky thing, and there was a gold piece of jewelry with a possible gemstone in it," said Giacometti, the archaeological director of Archaeology Plan, an organization that preserves Ireland's archaeological heritage. The pit at Rathfarnham Castle contained artifacts dating from 1650 to 1700, including pointy high-heeled women's shoes, porcelain plates and teacups imported from China.

Science News: 'Dark Ice' Speeds Up Melting in Greenland (Photos)

'Dark Ice' Speeds Up Melting in Greenland (Photos)Ribbons of "dark ice" are exposed on the otherwise white, frozen landscape of Greenland every summer, and researchers think these bands could reveal how climate change will affect the huge island. Climate scientists Johnny Ryan, from Aberystwyth University in the United Kingdom, and Jason Box, from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, camped out in tents for most of the summer in southwest Greenland to measure how well dark ice, which is rich with impurities, can reflect sunlight. Their work is part of the ongoing Dark Snow Project that scientists hope will reveal more about how climate change will influence the melting of Greenland's ice sheet.
