When Your Skin Smells Sandalwood Oil, It Heals Itself via @novapbs
"In other words, your skin has the ability to smell, just not in the way we normally think of. Instead, certain odorants target “smelling” receptors in the skin, which prompt the healing process. Of course, just as one nose is different from another, so are the scent receptors in our skin. One person’s genetics might predispose them to greater olfactory sensitivity than another’s.

Caviar has lost its national identity. Over the years, caviar-producing wild sturgeon in the Caspian Sea have been poached, smuggled and overfished to the brink of extinction. Sturgeon fishing fell under a series of strict international quotas and in 2008 was subjected to a global ban by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. The only caviar on the market since then comes from tame varieties farmed in concrete basins and cages. The result is a global free-for-all in which caviar’s country of origin has no meaning, and only the best eggs win. - Sepi ⌘ سپی from Bookmarklet
Since sturgeon fishing was banned in the Caspian Sea, Paris’s top purveyors of the delicacy have turned to producers from as far afield as California, Uruguay and China. - Sepi ⌘ سپی

Quantum weirdness is everywhere in life – Johnjoe McFadden – Aeon -
Quantum weirdness is everywhere in life – Johnjoe McFadden – Aeon
"Beneath all these quantum solutions to puzzling vital phenomena, we find ourselves with a deeper mystery. Quantum coherence is an immensely delicate phenomenon, depending on those in-tune particle waves. To maintain it, physicists usually have to enclose their systems within near-perfect vacuums and cool them down to very close to absolute zero temperature to freeze out any heat-driven molecular motion. Molecular vibrations are the mortal enemy of quantum coherence. How, then, does life manage to maintain its molecular order for long enough to perform its quantum tricks in warm and wet cells? That remains a profound riddle. Recent research offers a tantalising hint that, instead of avoiding molecular storms, life embraces them, rather like the captain of a ship who harnesses turbulent gusts and squalls to maintain his ship upright and on-course. As Schrödinger predicted, life navigates a narrow stream between the classical and quantum worlds: the quantum edge." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Wow, that must have been interesting. Anything stand out? - Todd Hoff
It was a general overview of quantum biological processes with the most amount of time spent on the way robins navigate. It was difficult to concentrate fully on the talk as it was held on a glass-bottomed boat in an aquarium with sharks, rays, and turtles swimming around, with the turtle often coming up to the boat and slapping it with its flipper much to everyone's amusement. - Mark H
That sounds fascinating - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Texas health workers find a new use for Tabasco -
Texas health workers find a new use for Tabasco
"Edmund McIlhenny, the creator of Tabasco-brand Original Red Sauce, probably didn't expect his product to aid in the treatment of a deadly virus. But, that is exactly what health workers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center are doing. Tuesday, Gov. Rick Perry announced the creation of two containment facilities in Texas, one of them at UT Southwestern, to treat individuals who have contracted the deadly virus. UT Southwestern has already begun a program that simulates how the workers will treat patients with the virus." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Elizabeth Thomas, a nurse at the hospital, told ABC news about the process. Random "patients" are sprayed with Tabasco, which represents the Ebola virus-laden fluids. Why Tabasco? The sauce is made with the seeds of Capsicum frutescens peppers from either Mexico or Central America. These peppers will cause a tingly-sensation whenever contact with skin occurs. After the patient is... more... - Jessie

@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit

Farm Confessional: What Butchering Your Animals Really Feels Like - Modern Farmer -
Farm Confessional: What Butchering Your Animals Really Feels Like - Modern Farmer
"I have cried on butcher day in the past, when it is over. But now I usually have a day of tears in the week prior. It is on my mind, a conscious decision I make to kill an animal to eat it. It is a conflict to love animals, nurture them and kill them. I get it. Because I live it. But it’s also a conflict to raise a puppy and then send it off with a stranger. I don’t judge any kind of eater — be it lion, dog, coyote, hawk, cat, worm, vegan or meat-eater — for killing another creature, either vegetable or animal. When I was a vegetarian for about seven years, I began to feel that I had actually judged nature. I had taken myself out of her perfectly sound and wise food system. While I realize I am currently at the top of the food chain, I don’t take it lightly, and never will, and that is why I go to the extremes I do before, during and after harvest day. That is why I always check in with myself, asking, “Do I still want to raise an animal this year to eat it?” I hope I never stop asking that." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian -
Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian
"A nickname for the fruit was the “poison apple” because it was thought that aristocrats got sick and died after eating them, but the truth of the matter was that wealthy Europeans used pewter plates, which were high in lead content. Because tomatoes are so high in acidity, when placed on this particular tableware, the fruit would leach lead from the plate, resulting in many deaths from lead poisoning. No one made this connection between plate and poison at the time; the tomato was picked as the culprit. " - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, Alsace (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, some of those affected died of heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"The outbreak began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Some of these people eventually died from heart attacks, strokes, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel

Rhines soon clarified her husband was Jesus Christ, but she admitted the union was not solidified with a marriage license." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The woman, who managers said insisted the Christian savior would soon be arriving to pay in cash, was arrested on a fraud charge when police arrived and determined she had no means of paying the bill. " - Jessie

Craft Brewer Admits He’s The Guy Responsible For Town’s Mysterious Count Chocula Shortage – Consumerist
"Just in time for the spooky season, the city of Fort Collins, CO had a crunchy mystery on its hands: Someone had bought up all the boxes of Count Chocula cereal from two local grocery stores, prompting confusion and hunger in at least a few shoppers. Enough of a mystery to make the news, at least. A puzzled shopper who says she usually eats vegetarian and organic food for most of the year wrote to The Coloradoan saying she splurges around Halloween on her favorite cereal. “Every year I greatly look forward to the month of October when I can purchase a few boxes of this delicious chococlatey (sic) goodness,” she wrote, an effort that was stymied when both Albertson’s stores she went to were completely out of the stuff." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
