Nature is AMAZING!   

"The findings suggest that differentiation is not caused by inherited genetic difference, as is typical of most species of animal, meaning that males, which hatch from unfertilised eggs, are genetically very similar to their sisters."

"In our study we had the aim to understand how one genome could produce three such different castes -- queens, workers and males -- within bumblebees.

"The question we sought to answer is how the genome encodes for males, workers and queens, as they are so genetically similar yet so different in behaviour, morphology and physiology."
"Biologists have discovered that one of nature’s most important pollinators - the buff-tailed bumblebee – either ascends to the status of queen or remains a lowly worker bee based on which genes are ‘turned on’ during its lifespan".

Sooo fascinating ... 

"The new species is yet another confirmation that Lucy’s species ...  was not the only potential human ancestor species that roamed in what is now the Afar region of Ethiopia during the middle Pliocene," 

"Based on the geology, radiometric dating, paleomagnetic data, and the rate of sediment deposition, the layer the fossils had weathered out of was between the ages of 3.3 and 3.5 million years. The area is just 35 kilometers north of Hadar, where Lucy was discovered."

Way cool... +Merry Weathers  +rasha kamel  +Gnotic Pasta
Meet Australopithecus deyiremeda, a previously unknown human ancestor species who lived alongside Lucy’s species, Australopithecus afarensis, in Ethiopia over 3 million years ago. The jawbones and a few isolated teeth of the new hominin (that’s us and our extinct ancestors) are described in Nature this week.

THE war on Big Food. ... you, me, we... CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!
"An analysis by Moskow found that the top 25 U.S. food and beverage companies have lost an equivalent of $18 billion in market share since 2009."

"And that has brought the entire colossal, $1-trillion-a-year food retail business to a tipping point. Steve Hughes, a former ConAgra executive who co-founded and now runs natural food company Boulder Brands, believes so much change is afoot that we won’t recognize the typical grocery store in five years. “I’ve been doing this for 37 years,” he says, “and this is the most dynamic, disruptive, and transformational time that I’ve seen in my career.”
Major packaged-food companies lost $4 billion in market share alone last year, as shoppers swerved to fresh and organic alternatives. Can the supermarket giants win you back?

REAL, natural fats are good for us... 

We see this time and time again. 


The average age of the population was 8.22 (± 1.65) years. Significant associations were observed between Ritalin® therapy and the changes before and after the treatment, and the omega-3 treatment and the changes before and after treatment (p < 0.001). There was no significant association between the placebo group and the changes before and after the treatment (p > 0.050). Omega-3 had considerable efficacy as well as Ritalin® (P = 0.001).


More attention should be given to screening, prevention, and treatment with omega-3 and its effective role in the development of the brain and mental health, and increasing children's attention span and thinking ability.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a fixed pattern of disregard and hyperactivity that is much more severe than what is normal in children of the same age. Multiple drugs are used for the treatment of children with ADHD; however, their ...
