The Tiger Gap

A shocking news bulletin indicates that smugglers wereAattempting to bring a tiger cub into Iran.A Tigers are of course an endangered species, as rare as uranium, and zoos around the world are racing to enrich their tiger stocks.A While we can't be certain of the identity of the intended recipients in Iran, the Revolutionary Guard is known to be interested in acquiring the most advanced muscle and claw technology.A Indeed, officials in Israel fear that if Iran is not stopped they could soon have a formidable arsenal of large felines.A With this arsenal, no gazelle, goat, or sheep in the region would be safe.A Continued Iranian defiance of international conventions on endangered species would also have grave implications for the endangered Arabian leopard, the few remaining lion prides in India, and the snow leopards of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

In order to stave this off, Israeli officials privately confide that they may have no choice but to bomb zoos in Tehran within the next year, unless the US acts quickly.A While such an extreme measure would of course inflame Muslims and zoo enthusiasts around the world, the principles at stake are too important for this defiance to be unopposed.A The Middle East is a dangerous neighborhood, red in tooth and claw, and Netanyahu fears that without action to force the Ayatollahs to change their stripes, Iran will have regional feline supremacy.A At that point, the Gulf states will quickly fall into Tehran's diplomatic and tourist orbit, further undermining US interests in the region.

Copenhagen’s Bike Butlers

Cyclists in Copenhagen who park their bicycles illegally are returning to where they left them to discover that city authorities have moved them - and placed them in the nearest purpose-built bike rack, while giving the chain a bit of a lube, pumping up the tyres and leaving a polite note asking them to park in the correct place in future.

The Copenhagenize blog, citing a report from the newspaper Berlingske, says that aim of the initiative, begun in April this year and set to run through to at least January 2011, is to encourage people to use bike racks located by the city's Metro station, rather than leaving them in places where access may be required by the emergency services.

What is Competing Hypotheses?

Open Source Analysis of Competing Hypotheses (ACH) will help you think objectively and logically about overwhelming amounts of data and hypotheses. It can also guide research teams toward more productive discussions by identifying the exact points of contention.

Most analysts…pick out what they suspect intuitively is the most likely answer, then look at the available information from the point of view of whether or not it supports this answer. If the evidence seems to support the favorite hypothesis, analysts pat themselves on the back and look no further.

Mitochondrial Eve

The most robust statistical examination to date of our species’ genetic links to "mitochondrial Eve" — the maternal ancestor of all living humans — confirms that she lived about 200,000 years ago. The Rice University study was based on a side-by-side comparison of 10 human genetic models that each aim to determine when Eve lived using a very different set of assumptions about the way humans migrated, expanded and spread across Earth.

The research is available online in the journal Theoretical Population Biology.

"Our findings underscore the importance of taking into account the random nature of population processes like growth and extinction," said study co-author Marek Kimmel, professor of statistics at Rice. "Classical, deterministic models, including several that have previously been applied to the dating of mitochondrial Eve, do not fully account for these random processes."
