New Jaguar transmission selector puzzles journalists

Jaguar has a new transmission selector called Jaguardrive, spy photos show something of it, but no one knows just yet how it works [quote]Exactly how the shifter works isn't clear, but the flat face contains a round dial that we think will somehow raise into the palm of the driver's hand when the car is started In fact, the dial may not so much rise up as the rings around it retreat so that surface remains flat A turn of the dial, it would seem, selects the PRND of your choice T

Study Confirms Virgin Birth

Scientists have solved the mystery of how a baby shark appeared in a tank of females without the help of a male: it was a virgin birth The bonnethead shark was born through "parthenogenesis", a process where an egg develops into an embryo without being fertilised by sperm Virgin births, possible in some birds, amphibians, reptiles and bony fishes, are extremely rare It had never before been confirmed in cartilaginous fish, such as sharks and rays The birth, in 2001, astonished scientis

Comet destroyed cavemen and mammoths and triggered ice age

New evidence suggests a comet exploded over the Earth nearly 13,000 years ago, creating a hail of fireballs that set fire to most of the northern hemisphere and led to a 1000 year ice age Primitive Stone Age cultures were destroyed and populations of mammoths and other large land animals, such as the mastodon, were wiped out The blast also caused a major bout of climatic cooling that lasted 1,000 years and seriously disrupted the development of the early human civilisations that were emerg

Earths magnetic field about to cease get ready for the next world destruction theory.

in the next few hundred years that is Won't affect us too much compass wise, as the world will be GPS enabled by then But what else does the magnetic field protect us from Dangerous radiation Besides directing compasses, the Earth's magnetic field reaches out into space to direct the flow of the solar wind around the planet forming a structure called the magnetosphere When the wind hits this field it creates a shock wave known as the bow shock Most of the protons and electro
