I don't know if folks on here actually follow my research background, but it has been extremely variable. For the last 10 years it has been mostly agricultural research (aquaculture to citrus pathology). Now I do mostly sensory science, and the psychology involved it this area of research is like nothing I've encountered before. People experience food in ways others can't even imagine and is difficult to quantify.
My boss has worked with the researchers in this article and when I read it she gave me some fascinating background on tomato breeding and consumer acceptance.
Tomato lovers, rejoice, for science has achieved the impossible: the perfect supermarket tomato. The Garden Gem won’t bruise during shipping, it resists many of the major diseases that regularly decimate tomato crops, and it is a flesh-producing powerhouse, turning out up to 22 pounds of tomatoes per plant, which is...

Cosplaying with Fancy Dresses
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/23/cosplaying-with-fancy-dresses/

Cosplaying doesn’t necessarily mean putting on spandex or armor. It’s possible to play dress up by putting on a dress. Jolien Rosanne of Fairytas designs incredible gowns that look like they’re from another, more magical world. She makes dream costumes come to life and has a large portfolio of creations inspired by myth and legend. She pairs all sorts of textures and materials like fabric, armor, and feathers in her ensembles and thus evokes the spirit of creatures such as a phoenix. One of her latest completed commissions is a gown for a Valkyrie rider. She sculpted the chestplate from Worbla and mixed it with other elements. She said:

“I used 10 meters of golden silk for the skirt. The chest piece is attached to a semi leather corset for comfort. I used an absorbent sporting fabric underneath the chest plate and scale sleeves because this costume is going to be worn in a horse show = lots of movement!”

Bunnies and Birds

Saw two rabbits by the road a short distance from my workplace, both sharing the verge with several small birds.

For +Kimberly Chapman​ and Peo. I did a quick search and did not find you posting about it. I thought you two night find it amusing (from last November).

Apologies if you've already seen it.
When he was nine years old, Neil Gaiman won a newspaper contest about Gilbert & Sullivan. See how much he remembers about the duo's 19th century operettas...and whether he can sing his answers.

I hadn't, and it was delightful!  I clicked through to another of the games as well.

Will show to Peo eventually...she just got herself grounded from TV for a month but I'll add it to her playlist.  She'll love it.  Thanks!

The difference between one day's picking and the next, 66 versus 102 figs. Still a tiny take compared to some trees in the neighborhood.

Corvids fighting the heat

Check out the size difference as these corvids fluff their feathers to break up the insulating effect they have.

Do you have a patch submission policy? The website does not list patches as a contribution option.

I just found Turbo Editor after hunting for a new one - I was using Writer, but it started choking when the word-count went above 5k. Turbo is working nicely for my purposes (writing fiction on the go), but lacks a word count function, so I wrote one that displays a live total and per-session word-count on the editing screen (optional).

I don't think a Github pull request is going to work, as I had to strip out a bunch of code to get it to build in Android Studio on my Linux boxen, but I hacked up a patch that applies on the Version 1.19 release (a1e82b65d42).

+Howard C. Shaw III Hi! Nobody has contributed to the project, that is why there is not list of patches. If you want you can mail me describing the patch and I will add your name on the Github page.
