Where bears have eaten the ants predators return and help protect the plants he and his colleagues reported online ahead of print in Ecology Letters “The study really highlights the complexity of effects that a predator can have on a whole community of species that are interacting with each other” says Corinna Riginos an ecologist at Teton Science Schools in Jackson Wyoming who was not involved with the work “Most likely other big predators also have just as many surprising and complex effects on the many species they live with” Judith Bronstein an ecologist at the University of Arizona in Tucson was also impressed as such interactions can be hard to tease out “In this case many of the strongest effects are indirect ones whose importance couldn’t have been predicted in the absence of controlled experiments” says Bronstein who was not involved with the work (The experiments performed by Grinath’s team included removing all ants from some rabbitbrushes allowing just a few ants on others and leaving the ants alone on still other plants In other tests they manipulated the number of insect predators on the plants) In this situation it’s not just who eats whom but also a question of who helps whom Such mutualisms as these partnerships are called “can play a powerful role in the organization and functioning of nature” Palmer says Bears are changing their diets—with some eating more ants and others becoming increasingly reliant on garbage and human food—so ant populations may increasingly be affected But “it’s hard to say” whether the bears’ eating habits have a big enough impact “to affect the abundance of rabbitbrush across the landscape” Riginos says Adds Palmer “The jury is out until large-scale and longer term experiments are conducted” But Grinath thinks there is cause for concern: “These types of ecological relationships could unravel” if bears and their habitats aren’t managed carefully he says and plant populations could change as a result

must respond to legitimate requests to remove data; exceptions could be made when the information is relative to a public figure but thats a fair bit of valuable space on a space stationjust for some beer” Still let’s assume you’re on the station you’ve grown the crops and now it’s time to brew your first batch To start with the barley grains will have to go through the malting process which means soaking them in water for two or three days allowing them to germinate partway and then effectively killing them with heat For that you need specialized equipment which has to be carried to space and stored onboard Every pound of orbital cargo can currently cost about $10000 according to NASA though competition from private industry is driving the price down Still shipping costs to space are never going to be cheap and it’s hard to justify any beer that winds up costing a couple hundred bucks a swallow The brewing process itself would present an entirely different set of problems most involving gravity On Earth Stephenson says “Brewers measure fermentation progress by assessing the gravity (density) of the beer The measurement is taken using a floating hydrometer Youre not going to be doing that in space” The carbonation in the beer would be all wrong too making the overall drink both unsightly and too frothy “The bubbles won’t rise in zero-g” says Stephenson “Instead theyll flocculate together into frogspawn style clumps” Dispersed or froggy once the bubbles go down your gullet they do your body no favors in space The burp you emit after a beer on Earth seems like a bad thing but only compared to the alternative which happens a lot in zero-g as gasses don’t rise but instead find their way deeper into your digestive tract The type of beer you could make in space is limited and pretty much excludes Lagers or cold-fermented beer “Lager takes longer to make compared to most beers because the yeast works at a lower temperature” says Stephenson “This is also the reason for the notable clarity of lager: longer fermentation means more yeast falls out of the solution resulting in a clearer cleaner looking beer Emphasis on falls and stuff doesn’t fall in space” Finally if Budweiser’s stated goal is to grow beer crops on Mars they’re going about the experiment all wrong Germinating your seeds in what is effectively the zero-g environment of the ISS is very different from germinating them on Mars where the gravity is 40% that of Earth’s weak by our standards but still considerable for a growing plant Budweiser and its partners acknowledge this possibility and argue that the very purpose of the experiment is to try to address the problem “Gravity as a continuum is an active area of research” says Michael Roberts deputy chief scientist of the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) which is collaborating with Budweiser on the space station study “We do not yet know if plants or any living organisms experience a threshold effect where fractions of 1-g have the same effects as microgravity” That’s just one of a whole lot of known unknowns and there’s no certainty they’ll ever be sorted out Still there’s no denying that an extraterrestrial brewery has appeal Budweiser may be in the business of making and marketing beer but it’s hard to argue with company vice president Marques when he asks “How good will life on Mars be if you can’t enjoy a cold beer” The answer: less good than it ought to be If we have the wherewithal to get ourselves to Mars one day here’s hoping we’ll also figure out a way to toast our own arrival Write to Jeffrey Kluger at jeffrey_kluger@timemagazinecomImagine you’re watching a movie with a crowd of particularly rowdy friends and a conversation breaks out during a crucial plot point The main character just made the revelation you’ve been waiting for but you missed it “What did he say” you ask while holding down a button on your remote controlat which point the film is automatically rewound 15 seconds and dialogue titles pop up on screen temporarily That’s one of many things Siri can do for you on the new Apple TV which went on sale Oct 26 The device costs $149 for a model with 32GB of storage and $199 for one with 64GB It’s Apple’s first streaming box to come with support for Siri the company’s digital personal assistant Users can search for movies and TV shows ask questions (related to a particular program or otherwise) and skip around just by speaking into the remote It’s the first time Apple has included an iOS-like App Store on one of its TV boxes And for the first time in the eight years the company has been selling the Apple TV the firm is calling the device much more than a mere “hobby” It says it’s the future of television Apps for the TV Among the biggest changes to come to the Apple TV is its new App Store home to games recipe apps shopping services and much more In the past Apple TV came with pre-installed apps for viewing content such as Netflix Hulu and other media apps Now Apple is encouraging developers to create other types of apps that are optimized for the TV much like they do for iPads iPhones and iPods Airbnb Yummly and QVC are among the first to do so Apple believes that the future of TV is apps and that the modern television is in need of a reinvention The earliest apps for the Apple TV show a lot of promise for how that vision could revamp interacting with your TV but at its core the device is still primarily meant for entertainment It’s clear that developers thought about how to build apps for the TV that aren’t just scaled up software for iPhones or iPads I was impressed with how well games worked since it required app creators to completely rework controls for the Apple TV’s remote rather than a touchscreen Take Madefire’s comic-book reader: It’s an example of an app that translates particularly well to the TV It adds music dramatic sound effects and motion to comics that make it feel like a more immersive experience almost like watching an animated cartoon In general though the App Store doesn’t yet add a level of value that would make me choose it over something cheaper like an older Roku model Apple isn’t the first to bring apps to the TVRoku and Amazon’s respective devices also offer them The difference here seems to be that Apple has more to leverage: developers can leverage work they’ve put into creating apps for the iPhone and iPad to bring software to the Apple TV In terms of available video content the Apple TV offers most of the popular apps available on competing devices such as Netflix Hulu HBO Go and HBO Now Showtime and others It also has iTunes TV shows movies and Apple Music the company’s Spotify competitor The one main service it’s lacking so far is Amazon Instant Video which will be a disappointment if you’re an Amazon Prime member (Amazon could release an app for the TV App Store the way it has for iPads and iPhones) Using it Apple’s signature attention to detail is just as present in the new Apple TV as it is in the company’s MacBooks and iPhones App icons and movie posters in the user interface slightly rotate as you move your thumb from side to side on the new remote similar to the parallax effect Apple introduced to the iPhone back in 2013 The effect is subtle gorgeous and pleasant There’s also a selection of screensavers that Apple created for the Apple TV They were recorded specially for device similar to the way Apple shot hours of footage of flowers blossoming and jellyfish swimming for the motion watchfaces on the Apple Watch The new interface is slick and fast and overall feels much more modern The revamped remote which comes with a touchpad that makes navigating the TVs user interface as natural as using your iPhone is really comfortable and sleek Its easier to zip throughout the user interface without having to glance down at the remote to make sure you’re pressing the right button The touchpad is responsive and fluid although there is a slight learning curve When I first began using the new Apple TV I would occasionally slip past the app I wanted to use as I was getting a feel for the touchpad’s sensitivity (It can be adjusted to your liking in the Apple TV’s settings app) With the new Apple TV it’s clear that Apple tried to eliminate some of the pain points when it comes to interacting with your TVsuch as entering text manually with the remote control which often takes multiple button presses Some competitors such as Roku have addressed this by allowing you to type in passwords on your smartphone’s keyboard in the Roku app rather than scrolling between letters on your TV screen That option isn’t always available with the Apple TV but the company has come up with a clever way to set up your device that’s quick and easy Simply turn on Bluetooth on your iPhone and hold your iPhone over the Apple TV for a few seconds The set top box then grabs information from your phone such as your Apple ID and Wi-Fi network so that you’re ready to go upon plugging it in Unfortunately there are still some cases in which you’ll have to use the on-screen letter selector to enter text and it’s still tedious But between Siri’s voice controls and the new setup process it’s evident that Apple tried to make it so that you’d have to enter as little text as possible Siri on the Big Screen Voice search isn’t revolutionaryApple is playing catch-up in that regard since the Fire TV Roku and Xbox One already offer something similar You can also ask Siri for things like the weather and sports scores similar to the way Amazon’s voice-enabled assistant Alexa works on the Fire TV Where Siri really shines however is in specific voice searches and tasks Siri can sort TV shows and movies by actor genre and title and you can further refine searches to get even more targeted results For example if you search for “movies starring Leonardo DiCaprio” you can narrow down your results by following up with something like “Only show me the drama movies” to see dramas starring DiCaprio Or “only the good ones” to find the most highly rated by critics (including TIME) You can also find specific episodes of TV shows based on cameos or guest appearances This worked well for the most part but there were a few instances in which Siri couldn’t answer my query For example it couldn’t find specific episodes of “Saturday Night Live” in which Bryan Cranston hosted But in most cases it was on-point The best Siri feature is the aforementioned ability to skip back by a few seconds to re-watch a scene you may have missed Speaking “What did he say” into the remote tells Siri to rewind by about 15 seconds Siri turns on closed captioning for that specific scene and turns it off once the show has reached the point where you initially asked it to rewind which is useful for seeing exactly what a character has said You can also tell Siri to fast forward by 10 minutes if you don’t feel like using the touchpad to scrub through scenes to find the exact moment you want One area where Siri is somewhat lacking is in finding content that’s similar to something you’ve watched If you search for a particular title the Apple TV will bring you to a delightful landing page that displays a synopsis of the movie or TV show lists episodes and seasons for TV shows shows cast members and which apps contain that particular title You can find related content here but the suggestions seem to be more based on cast members than genre For example when I looked for TV shows similar to Family Guy it pulled up TV shows such as Wilfred Dads and a few anime cartoons which seemed like odd choices to me It did pull up The Cleveland Show which makes sense given it’s a Family Guy spinoff but that was the only truly relevant suggestion I expected to see other comedy cartoons such as American Dad or The Simpsons In the future I’d love to see Siri on Apple TV become more contextual and personal just like it has on the iPhone I could imagine Siri offering up suggestions for apps to download based on the ones I use the most and TV shows or movies to try based on my search history For now Siri improves the overall viewing experience by making it easier to find specific shows or movies and enhancing playback controls but I can’t wait for Apple to take it a step further Conclusion Overall the Apple TV is a big step up from its predecessor It’s speedier the interface is smoother Siri is really helpful on the TV and it has an App Store with a lot of promise It’s a great choice if you’re looking to splurge on a high-end set top box and already find yourself enmeshed in Apple’s iTunes ecosystem There are a few shortcomings however It doesn’t support 4K video That isn’t a complete deal breaker since not much content is optimized for 4K viewing anyhow Still given the Apple TV is among the most expensive streaming boxes on the market it would have been a nice addition The lack of Amazon content it also a bummer especially now that Amazon is making its own excellent shows like Transparent The Apple TV certainly has plenty of perks As apps evolve and become more useful on the TV I’m sure those perks will become even more compelling 45 out of 5 Contact us at editors@timecom food soldier from the 3rd Cavalry Regiment relaxes in his quarters after taking part in a mortar
