When someone starts talking about an invasive predator fish, you probably would not think of Central Park in New York City.
A recent Yahoo News article by Dylan Stableford has the full story. "Environmental officials are set to conduct a survey of a Central Park lake for the northern snakehead, an invasive predator fish that can live out of water for days." The photo of the northern snakehead is quite impressive, but be sure to watch the video as well.
I don't think I would want to mess around with this guy.
|Oxygen Atom - NASA/World Book|
Scientists have developed an oxygen particle that would help keep patients alive that are unable to breathe. When injected, the oxygen particles can keep the patient's brain and heart healthy for 15 to 30 minutes. This is often enough to restore breathing to the patient.
This treatment does not remove carbon dioxide from the patient's bloodstream, but getting oxygen is the first priority.
Take a look at the full story at Fox News. It is also available at other sites, simply search for 'oxygen particle injection'.
I know what you're thinking... Perhaps some day we merfolk can use a simple procedure to extend our underwater stay.
