Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

The Paperwhite’s 6in touchscreen has 62% more pixels than its predecessor, giving it pin-sharp text, but all you’ll care about is the built-in backlight.

The non-touch Kindle is just £70.

What do you get in return? A mesmerising Amazon shop window, rendered in crisp 1920×1200, with easy access to its prodigious library of books, music and movies, and a

Researchers have found a link fires in the forests of the Amazon to the heating of the oceans

Researchers have found a link fires in the forests of the Amazon to the heating of the oceans Scientists prove

UCLA scientists have developed a computer model which can be used to predict in a few months, and intensity of fires in the Amazon rain forest. Elevated surface temperatures Atlantic and Pacific oceans are the main signal coming fire.

The researchers argue that by heating the sea surface moist climate shifts north of the Amazon, causing a gradual decrease in humidity in the region and dry vegetation. This process takes place within a few months, and eventually ends up fires.
