The secret sex of cheese | Molecular Love (and other facts of life)
The secret sex of cheese | Molecular Love (and other facts of life)
"Are you grossed out by blue cheese? (I’m not, but I know many who are). Does that blue-green marbling of delicious fungus kind of make you gag? Well, this little factoid probably won’t help: there may be sex going on in that cheese. Until pretty recently, a big chunk of fungal species were thought to reproduce without sex–until people really started to look. It turns out, there’s a lot more sex going on in the fungal world (on the down-low) than people thought. And that includes fungi that are used to make delicious blue cheese. Jeanne Ropars and colleagues in France, the home of Roquefort cheese, looked at the genomes of the mold species used in this particular cheese to see what kind of funny business was going on in their snack of choice. They found much more diversity than could be explained by asexual reproduction. And even more telling, the genes used by fungi to find mating partners have been kept intact and functional by evolution, meaning there’s probably some sex going on." - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet

My Mummy & Daddy, circa 1970. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
Do I resemble either? Both? Neither? Growing up I was always told I looked like Mum, but I think that's just because I'm short like her. If I single out facial features, I have more of Dad's. - Melly - #TeamMarina

Fox News Puts Karl Rove on the Bench -- Daily Intel
"According to multiple Fox sources, Ailes has issued a new directive to his staff: He wants the faces associated with the election off the air — for now. For Karl Rove and Dick Morris — a pair of pundits perhaps most closely aligned with Fox’s anti-Obama campaign — Ailes’s orders mean new rules. Ailes’s deputy, Fox News programming chief Bill Shine, has sent out orders mandating that producers must get permission before booking  Rove or  Morris." - Anika from Bookmarklet

Sometimes I expect too much from a site when I want it to be functional on mobile. Cool animation on desktop but mobile? It's dead. *sigh*
What does the site do. All I see is changing color on the text. - NOT THE CRICKET
In Firefox, it rotates once, then stops (but color keeps changing, fast). In Safari, it bobs nicely with a 3D-like feel (color changes slowly). - Tinfoil 2.0
It's not rotating at all for me, in FF. - NOT THE CRICKET
Webkit is disappointing. - NOT THE CRICKET
In Chrome, you can hit the → arrow to advance the slides. People make these idiotic slide decks with no hint for instructions on how to change the slides!! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
In FFox the slides are black but they do advance. There's no animation. Also, for a deck about embracing touch inputs it doesn't respond to touch at all. AT. ALL. #rage - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Wait it's a slide show? I was clicking and everything and couldn't get it to advance. I guess I shouldn't have been clicking in the middle. - NOT THE CRICKET
Yeah. I shouldn't have called it a site. But it still pissed me off. It's like a PowerPoint. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Oh, I don't mind calling HTML5 slideshows a site, but this has to be the worst one I've seen. It's pretty, but horrible functionally. - NOT THE CRICKET

Desperation is resorting to using brown sugar in your coffee.
Actually I use brown sugar in my coffee occasionally. I like the taste. Desperation is trying to use powdered sugar in coffee, which ruins the coffee, btw. Good morning, Kelli! - Friar Will
Ugh, powdered sugar, Will? That definitely sounds vile. LOL Good morning! - Jenny H.
Desperation is resorting to Splenda. I hate the taste. - AJ Batac
Splenda is horrible, AJ. I don't have any in my possession to use in times of desperation, thankfully. - Jenny H.
When I first started drinking coffee it was black with raw sugar (it was def brown). That was deep in the Philippine mountains... - Lnorigb from FFHound!
You're *supposed* to use brown sugar in coffee :) - Pete : Team Marina
I was truly desperate, Kelli. Then I was horrified. - Friar Will
i don't mind Splenda in hot tea. other than that, forget the stuff. - Big Joe Silence
Wahts wrong with Brown Sugar ? It justthe same taste.. once it disolves !! - Peter Dawson
I don't think it's the same taste at all, Peter. I love it oatmeal. Coffee? Not so much. tiffany, I don't think I have ever tried palm sugar before. - Jenny H.
Palm sugar. Must try. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
I'd think powdered sugar would work well. I like the taste of brown sugar but find I have to put more in to get the same sweetness (I try not to use real sugar in my drinks anymore, though. I use Splenda.) - Spidra Webster
I like raw sugar in coffee, but I don't think I've ever tried it with brown sugar (the kind that's packaged for baking, anyway). - John (bird whisperer)
Raw sugar is what I prefer, John. :) - Jenny H.
by raw, i assume you mean unrefined? i like honey too. - Halil
Halil, I actually mean turbinado sugar (called “demerara sugar” in the UK, apparently), which is partially refined, but called “raw sugar” colloquially. I don't like honey in coffee, but I like it in tea. Agave nectar is also a nice sugar substitute. :) - Jenny H.

Local Manhattan Boy Makes Good | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
"Despite his humble beginnings in a small three-bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, local Manhattan boy James Michael Carson has made a success of himself in the big city, sources reported." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"In 2004, Carson, fresh out of business school and unsure what to do next, chose to leave the safe confines of home and try his luck in investment banking--a world in which he had no connections at all aside from one or two influential family friends. With nothing in his pocket but the money his parents had put aside years ago specifically to cover all of his expenses, Carson set out to make his own separate personal fortune as a Wall Street trader." - Andrew C (✔)
The stuff about Romney's humble beginnings (at the start of the 2012 GOP convention) made me think of this piece. - Andrew C (✔)

McDonald's Introduces S'mores Pie - Campfire Favorite Now On Summer McDonald's Menu - Delish.com
"In advance of National S'mores Day and National S'mores Month, which both fall in August, McDonald's has added a new dessert to their roster: Baked S'mores Pie." According to the blog theimpulsivebuy.com, the warm pie was brimming with chocolate, which leaned more towards dark than milk, and it was "buttery, dense, and mercifully not too sweet." Though the chocolate and marshmallow is enveloped in a graham cracker-based pie crust, the shell, unfortunately, didn't get the thumbs up from the blogger. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
So, not gluten free then. :) - Stephen Mack
Suck it Stephen. :) - Steve C Team Marina
YEAH!!!!! - Akiva
Someone try it and let me know how it is so i can live vicariously. Luckily there are now GF graham crackers so we can smore to our hearts content at the beach. - Steve C Team Marina
Nope. It's just a sweet gooey mess without the most important flavor element: burnt marshmallow. It's the charcoal that makes it all worthwhile. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I went to McDonald's today just to get this dang thing and they didn't have it. :( I ended up with a Diet Coke instead. - Rochelle
How dare they when I'm on a diet?! - Shevonne
They also tested a Strawberries & Cream pie in certain markets. It didn't go national though. This one did. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
This just seems gross. Everyone tries to make some sort of s'mores concoction but they forget that the toasted marshmallow and the ratio of marshmallow to chocolate to graham is KEY. Otherwise it's just a pile of sugar in handpie format. - Hookuh Tinypants
They had apple & custard pies here for a little while once, they were good. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I suppose I'd try it once - MiniMage
The Strawberries & Cream pies were delicious. - Friar Will
I don't even like marshmallows. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I agree with Cristo. That's like three times this year . . . already! - Friar Will

I wanted to get one on the way back from L.A. but Kelly wouldn't let me. :-( - Jessie
Last time Kelly stays in our house. - Steve C Team Marina
I am eating one as I type this. It's okay, but I wouldn't get it again. It's not too sweet, but the crust is too dry. And the chocolate isn't very chocolatey. - Rochelle
There is absolutely no way anything can be called S'mores unless it includes hot, charred marshmallow. It's the burnt part that makes it taste good. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
