A NASA satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations found heavy rainfall occurring throughout Typhoon Chan-hom and the heaviest rainfall in the eyewall. Chan-hom is expected to bring rainfall to Japan on its track through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean.

The death of neurons, whether in the brain or the eye, can result in a number of human neurodegenerative disorders, from blindness to Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments for these disorders can only slow the progression of the illness, because once a neuron dies, it cannot be replaced.
Now, a team of researchers from the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, Ohio State University and the University of Florida has identified networks of genes that regulate the process responsible for determining whether neurons will regenerate in certain animals, such as zebrafish.
“This study is proof of principle, showing that it is possible to regenerate retinal neurons. We now believe the process for regenerating neurons in the brain will be similar,” said David Hyde, professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Notre Dame and co-author on the study.
For the study, published in Science, the researchers mapped the genes
The big talk in the auto industry has been around electric cars and their eventual role in autonomous driving.
But the used-vehicle market in the U.S. is more than twice as large as the new-car market on a unit-sales basis. So it’s worth taking a close look at how the used market is evolving and how you might profit from it.
The media is fixated on the other big change in the U.S. auto market — the acceleration of the electric-vehicle industry led by Telsa Inc. TSLA, -5.33%,
whose stock rose 245% during the third quarter. You may have missed out on Tesla’s gain, unless it is held by an index fund you own, but there are other ways to invest in the electric-car revolution.
According to Statista.com, 40.8 million used cars and trucks were sold in the U.S. in 2019, compared with 17 million new vehicles sold. You
