Calcium may play a role in the development of Parkinson’s disease — ScienceDaily

Researchers have found that excess levels of calcium in brain cells may lead to the formation of toxic clusters that are the hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. The international team, led by the University of Cambridge, found that calcium can mediate the interaction between small membranous structures inside nerve endings, which are important for neuronal signalling in the brain, and alpha-synuclein, the protein associated with Parkinson’s disease. Excess levels of either calcium or alpha-synuclein may be what starts the chain reaction…

Illegal global trade of pangolins — ScienceDaily

Animal traffickers are taking advantage of remote ivory trade routes to smuggle pangolins — one of the world’s most endangered animals — out of Central Africa, a new study has found. The solitary mammals — sought after for their meat and scales — are being transported across remote forest borders in a largely successful attempt to avoid increased law enforcement, according to groundbreaking research led by the University of Stirling. In the first ever study to investigate how criminals are…

Keeping our users safe

To everyone in Cloudflare, account security is one of our most important tasks. We recognize that to every customer on our platform, we are critical infrastructure. We also know that the simplest attacks often lead to the most devastating of outcomes. Most people think that if they are going to get hacked it will be by some clever ”zero day”. The reality couldn’t be farther from the truth. Attackers are smart and they have realized that even in 2018, the…

Professor touts underground pipeline system at international conference

Large metropolitan areas are increasingly running into congestion problems as increased amounts of freight travel into their ports and on their roads. One possible way to alleviate that problem is to create an underground pipeline system that can allow goods to move underground to their final location via an automated system, thus limiting traffic on the roads and in ports.
