Economy center stage in April election in Canada's Alberta province

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 03/19/2019 - 14:39

Premier Rachel Notley's left-leaning New Democratic Party won a shock victory in traditionally conservative Alberta in 2015, ending 44 years of conservative rule, but inherited a provincial economy rocked by the collapse of global oil prices. Notley was initially an ally of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and backed his attempts to please the oil industry and environmentalists by championing export pipelines while also introducing carbon pricing. The relationship soured last year over efforts to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline, prompting Notley to pull her support for Trudeau's carbon plan.

Equinox Supermoon March 2019: 7 Things for Stargazers to Know

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 03/19/2019 - 14:24

Things begin to bloom in March and it's happening with more beauty than before in 2019 with the equinox "supermoon" happening tomorrow evening for stargazers to enjoy.Source: Shutterstock They're calling it the equinox supermoon because the vernal equinox -- which marks the beginning of spring -- and a supermoon -- a phenomenon in which the moon appears bigger and brighter -- will happen on the same evening. Here are seven things to know ahead of the Wednesday astronomical event: * The equinox will happen at 5:58 p.m. EST tomorrow, while the supermoon (which will also happen during a full moon) will be on the same day at 9:43 p.m. EST. * During the equinox, the sun's rays will shine directly to where the equator is located and most areas of the planet will have the same amount of daylight and darkness on the day. * The equinox supermoon will appear to be 30% brighter than most full moons, as well as 14% bigger. * This is because the moon is about 14,000 miles closer to the Earth than it usually is as our planet's orbit does not happen in a circle. * The moment when the moon is closes to the Earth is called a perigee, and a supermoon happens when the full moon and a perigee line up. * Expect the moon to be a sight to behold on the eastern horizon late in the afternoon. * The moon will also look bigger and brighter on Tuesday night and Thursday after the sun goes down.Where will you be located?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips More From InvestorPlace * 15 Stocks Sitting on Huge Piles of Cash * 7 Small-Cap Stocks That Make the Grade * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them Compare Brokers The post Equinox Supermoon March 2019: 7 Things for Stargazers to Know appeared first on InvestorPlace.

WHO panel calls for registry of all human gene editing research

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 03/19/2019 - 13:53

After its first two-day meeting in Geneva, the WHO panel of gene editing experts - which was established in December after a Chinese scientist said he had edited the genes of twin babies - said it had agreed a framework for setting future standards. It said a central registry of all human genome editing research was needed "in order to create an open and transparent database of ongoing work", and asked the WHO to start setting up such a registry immediately. "The committee will develop essential tools and guidance for all those working on this new technology to ensure maximum benefit and minimal risk to human health," Soumya Swamanathan, the WHO's chief scientist, said in a statement.
