I had a lovely (bicycle) ride yesterday in the forest outside Goettingen. There were surprisingly large and colorful slugs all over the place. Some were bright orange (such as this one) some dark black, some brown-orange. Most of them were as big - as long and thick as my fingers.

I can't say I like the sunglasses, but the song sums up my month pretty well...

The data suggests that many back problems originate from evolving to stand upright.
 
It seems that how well-adapted we are to walking upright affects how likely we are to suffer with lower back pain. Scientists from the University of Aberdeen and Simon Fraser University in Canada analysed and compared the shapes of spinal bones from chimpanzees, orangutans and ancient humans to investigate the relationship between bone shape, upright movement and spinal health. 

Prof Mark Collard from Aberdeen commented "Our findings show that the vertebrae of humans with disc problems are closer in shape to those of our closest ape relatives, the chimpanzee, than are the vertebrae of humans without disc problems."

PBS NewsHour shares how U.S. Internet speeds and prices compare to the rest of the world and how @NYPL gets New Yorkers online: http://on.nypl.org/1Drcdh8
Even though the Internet was invented in the United States, Americans pay the most in the world for broadband access. And it’s not exactly blazing fast. So why are Americans paying more for slower service?

I've been wondering if the metabolism of neo-nicotinoids in animals results in an increased cyanide load on the kidneys (because that occurs with nicotine)...is that information available anywhere?
 
Buzz Over Bee Health: New Pesticide Studies Rev Up Controversy

"Even if you’re not a lover of bees or honey, you should know that bees are critically important to our food supply. And two new studies published in the journal Nature add to the evidence that overuse of neonicotinoid pesticides may also be contributing to the decline of bees." Read more from Allison Aubrey via NPR.
Two new studies published in the journal Nature point to a connection between a class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids and a decline in bee health. What's bad for bees is bad for crops, too.

Apparently the data breaches of Target, Sony, Home Depot and a host of others weren't sufficient to convince Anthem to encrypt patient Social Security numbers.

A storm has hit California, but that’s not going to end the ‘worst drought in a generation’ that is turning much of the centre of the state into a dust bowl. Chris McGreal reports on the drought bringing one of the richest states in America to its knees
