They found that levels of the whales&rsquo; stress levels fell when ship traffic was reduced as a security measure and ocean noise to fall by half.</p> <p> <br /> &quot;What this study has shown is that they are having a measurable physiological stress response to the noise in their environment,&rdquo; Rolland <a href="http://www.livescience.com/18367-ship-noise-stresses-whales.html">told LiveScience.</a></p> <p> <br /> The researchers believe that these high stress levels may cause behavioral changes in the whales, as well as impacting their immune and reproductive systems, <a href="http://www.livescience.com/18367-ship-noise-stresses-whales.html">LiveScience says.</a></p> <p> <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/9068202/Shipping-noise-causes-major-stress-in-whales.html"><br /> <em>The Telegraph </em>explains</a> that ships&rsquo; propellers emit sound in the same frequency range that some whales use for communicating. It cites previous studies which have shown the whales change their calling patterns in noisy places.</p> <p> <br /> &quot;We knew whales changed the frequency of their calls to adapt to the ship noise, but these work shows it is not merely an annoyance - it is having a physical effect,&quot; the newspaper quotes Rolland as saying.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/scientists-find-link-between-whale-stress-and-ocean-noise" target="_blank">read more</a></p> 9/11 Canada shipping noise United States whales Canada United States Weird Wide Web Thu, 09 Feb 2012 01:22:00 +0000 Hélène Hofman 5691015 at http://www.globalpost.com 9/11 remains ended up in landfill http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/120228/911-remains-ended-landfill <p> The remains were unclaimed and unidentifiable, said a Pentagon report on the Dover mortuary.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/120228/911-remains-ended-landfill" target="_blank">read more</a></p> 9/11 United States Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:01:00 +0000 News Desk 5693901 at http://www.globalpost.com Oscar-winner Jean DuJardin's new film was changed to help him win http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/europe/oscar-winner-jean-dujardins-new-film-was-changed-help-him-win <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subhead"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> French magazine claims controversial 9/11 scene was eliminated </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Michael Goldfarb </div> </div> </div> <!--paging_filter--><p> Jean DuJardin is probably still in orbit after winning the Best Actor Oscar on Sunday night for his performance in &quot;The Artist.&quot; The French nation is there with him.
