Close The highly anticipated John Lewis Christmas advert for 2015 has been unveiled, featuring a young girl who strikes up a relationship with elderly man living on his own on the moon. The story of the ad sees a young girl named Lily and her attempts to wish the man a merry Christmas, finally succeeding by sending him her telescope tied to a bunch of balloons, ending with the strapline: Show someone theyre loved this Christmas.As is tradition for John Lewis, the ad is accompanied by a cover version of a well-known but non-festive song. This year, the Oasis track Half The World Away is performed by the 19-year-old Norwegian artist Aurora and becomes the first-non British artist to be featured in a John Lewis Christmas advert.The ad itself cost around Â£1m ($1.5m) to make, less than the Â£7m spent on last years ad featuring Monty the Penguin, but the retailer is estimated to be spending a further Â£6m on television slots. The ad will get its debut broadcast during first break of Channel 4s Gogglebox on 6 November.John Lewis teamed up with Age UK as part of a campaign to remind people about those who may be alone this festive period. The retailer will be supporting the charity throughout November and December with initiatives such as text-to-donate campaigns online and in their stores and through the sales of selected Christmas merchandise.John Lewis customer director Craig Inglis said: Our Christmas advert is once again all about going the extra mile to give someone the perfect gift. This year though, the story is told in a uniquely creative and engaging way as we see Lily, our heroine, go to great lengths to connect with the Man On The Moon.We hope it inspires people to find really special gifts for their loved ones and through our partnership with Age UK, raises awareness of the issue of loneliness amongst older people, and encourages others to support in any way they can.Over the past few years, the typically heart-wrenching John Lewis advert has become as synonymous with Christmas as Slade, the Snowman and possibly Jesus. According to research released by MindMover on the day the ad was released, John Lewis is now the brand people most associate with Christmas, ahead of Coca-Cola and Marks and Spencer.
Thai divers gather before they enter to the Tham Luang cave, where 12 boys and their soccer coach are trapped, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand on 6 July 2018. Photo: ReutersMore than 100 chimneys are being drilled into the mountainside in a frantic bid to reach a Thai youth football team trapped in a cave complex below, the head of the rescue mission said Saturday.The unprecedented rescue effort is attempting to establish new ways to extract the boys from above, if the underground chambers flood and it is deemed too risky to evacuate the team by diving out through the submerged passageways.”Some (of the chimneys) are as deep as 400 metres… but they still cannot find their location yet,” Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, adding the mission lacked the technology “to pinpoint where they are staying”.”We estimate that (they) are 600 metres down, but we don’t know the (exact) target,” he said.On the question of dipping oxygen levels in the cave, he said rescuers had managed to establish a line to pump in fresh air and had also withdrawn non-essential workers from chamber three — where the rescue base is — to preserve levels inside the cave.The “Wild Boar” team have been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave complex for two weeks.
More information: Turtle embryos move to optimal thermal environments within the egg, Published 12 June 2013 doi: 10.1098/rsbl.2013.0337AbstractA recent study demonstrated that the embryos of soft-shelled turtles can reposition themselves within their eggs to exploit locally warm conditions. In this paper, we ask whether turtle embryos actively seek out optimal thermal environments for their development, as do post-hatching individuals. Specifically, (i) do reptile embryos move away from dangerously high temperatures as well as towards warm temperatures? and (ii) is such embryonic movement due to active thermoregulation, or (more simply) to passive embryonic repositioning caused by local heat-induced changes in viscosity of fluids within the egg? Our experiments with an emydid turtle (Chinemys reevesii) show that embryos avoid dangerously high temperatures by moving to cooler regions of the egg. The repositioning of embryos is an active rather than passive process: live embryos move towards a heat source, whereas dead ones do not. Overall, our results suggest that behavioural thermoregulation by turtle embryos is genuinely analogous to the thermoregulatory behaviour exhibited by post-hatching ectotherms. Explore further (Phys.org) —A team of researchers working in China has proven that the three-keeled pond turtle embryo is capable of moving itself towards or away from a heat source in order to warm itself or cool down. In their paper published in the journal Biology Letters, the team describes how they subjected turtle embryos to various heat scenarios while monitoring their movements inside their shells to show that the turtles were directing their own actions while still inside their eggs. © 2013 Phys.org Turtle embryos move to bask in the sun The position of embryonic Chinese pond turtles (C. reevesii) inside eggs, as shown by candling.

Credit: Biology Letters, Published 12 June 2013 doi: 10.1098/rsbl.2013.0337 Turtles, as most are aware, are cold-blooded animals. They regulate their body temperature by moving themselves to warmer or cooler places. In this new study, the researchers found the same ability applies to turtles while still in their shell.Biologists have known since 2011 that at least some turtle embryos move about in their shell in response to external heat sources. Another team in China had discovered this ability and had published a paper describing their results. What that team wasn’t able to say for sure, though, was whether the turtle embryos were moving themselves or if fluids within the shell were causing the movement. In this new effort, the research team sought to find the answer to that question.The team set 125 turtle eggs (in groups of five) in incubators set at 26 °C. Then four of the five groups were subjected to various degrees of heat applied at one end of the eggs. The team also set up bright lights next to the eggs that allowed them to see the silhouettes of the embryos inside as they moved. In all but the control group, the team observed that the embryos moved away from the heat source, thus confirming the findings of the team in 2011.To ascertain whether the embryos were moving themselves or were simply being carried by heated fluid, the researchers ran another similar experiment. This time they allowed 41 embryos to develop naturally for ten days, whereupon, they killed half of them using an injected chemical. After applying heat and waiting for a week, they cracked open the eggs and found that only those turtle embryos still alive had moved away from the source. This they claim, proves that the embryos moved themselves intentionally.The researchers noted also that the ability to move inside the egg may also be a means of allowing the embryos to choose their own gender—previous studies have shown that temperatures during incubation can determine whether turtles are born male or female.
