This undated photo provided by Orin McMonigle shows Gwynevere McMonigle with Dr. Phil, her pet hissing cockroach, Gromphadorhina portentosa. The most common pet roach, the hissing cockroach, is two to three inches long, and its name comes from the sound the insects make when disturbed, although they may lose the habit when they get used to being handled. Hissers make a good display not only due to their size, but also because they don't instinctively hide where they can't be seen. (AP Photo/Orin McMonigle)Children are fascinated by insects, but many of us eventually grow out of wanting to catch a firefly and keep it in a jar.

Satellites give perspective on archaeological sites; guide to North American butterflies

The image of archaeology is romantic but also decidedly messy, involving khaki-clad scientists digging through dirt and rock, gravel and mud, sand and dust. Lots of dust. But technological advances are allowing researchers to virtually dig through layers of ground, finding buried treasures without overturning a single rock. National Geographic reports that space satellites are capturing images of archaeological sites all over the world from 400 miles above Earth. The magazine compares the satellite imagery to medical scans: Just as doctors can examine body parts and organs beneath the skin, scientists can find objects hidden a foot beneath the surface. Infrared images are processed to reveal subtle surface changes, and suddenly a muddy mound is discovered to be hiding a row of ancient homes. Sarah Parcak, a University of Alabama archaeologist, has identified 17 potential buried pyramids, 3,000 settlements and 1,000 tombs across Egypt using satellite imagery, according to the magazine. At Tanis, a 3,000-year-old city in the Nile Delta, Parcak identified shallowly buried houses; so far, a team of French researchers has excavated one of those dwellings, according to the magazine. “Using laborious, low-tech excavation, it might have taken a century to assemble a similar city plan,” the magazine says. A bonus is that satellites give scientists eyes on locales that might be difficult or dangerous to visit in person. Of course, the article notes, someone eventually needs to confirm the satellites’ findings. “When it comes to archaeology, distance provides crucial perspective, but there’s no substitute for being up close.”

●The screening for cervical cancer, a Pap smear, gets the highest rating, and is recommended for women ages 21 to 65. Women 21 to 30 should get the Pap every three years; those 30 to 65 can go five years between Pap tests if they’ve had HPV testing.Younger women should skip the screening because the cancer is uncommon before then and the tests are not accurate for this age group. Women older than 65 don’t need to be tested provided they had regular screenings in their younger years.

Phone app allows volunteers to send in weather reports to national database

Calling all weather watchers. A new smartphone app allows you to live out your weather-reporting dreams, albeit without the thrill of standing in front of a large TV weather map. The free app — called mPING, which stands for mobile Precipitation Identification Near the Ground — allows volunteers to anonymously report rain, snow and other weather conditions from their iPhone or Android devices. Created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Oklahoma, the app collects real-time, on-the-ground precipitation reports, something that even advanced radars can’t do. While it sounds complex, the app itself is easy to use: Just log in, select the type of precipitation falling in your area, and hit “submit report.” Users can choose from 12 types of precipitation, including rain, snow, hail and sleet. This information is funneled into a database of weather reports from around the country, which will be used to create more accurate radar algorithms and to help officials prepare for severe weather.
