So far, the company, Monsanto subsidiary Seminis, has failed to persuade the U.S. Patent Office to grant it a broad “utility patent.” But Seminis has appealed. If it succeeds, the original breeders, who shared their seeds freely, could be barred from working with their own seeds.
"Linux For Lettuce," a writer's account of the movement to counter seed patents with open source licenses, gets to the root of a growing problem.

"Coup de foudre" ("Love at first sight") by Luc Perrot
"The plains of Cafres is a region of Reunion Island close to the volcano, the Piton de la Fournaise, with few houses and little light pollution. Here, the Milky Way appears to split the Tamarind tree. I went 3 times to this place to realize this picture. The first time, nine months ago. The framing was good but the Moon too strong."

"The second time, I arrived a bit too late, the Carina Nebula was too close to the horizon to be visible. And the violent wind had blurred the the tree branches."

"The third time, June 13 at 0:12, all the conditions were finally reunited for this shot ..."

Aerial view of Lake Powell, Reflection Canyon by Mike Reyfman

Lake Powell is a reservoir on the Colorado River, straddling the border between Utah and Arizona (most of it, along with Rainbow Bridge, is in Utah). It is a major vacation spot that around 2 million people visit every year. It is the second largest man-made reservoir, by maximum water capacity, in the United States behind Lake Mead.

Achrioptera fallax is a stick insect species found in Madagascar.
The males are a bright electric blue (with greenish tints) and have two rows of reddish orange spines along the edges of the femur. There are also dark coloured spines going along the sides and underneath the thorax. Males are brachypterous (incapable of flight) and have small reduced wings. The forewings are a bright yellow; the hind wings have a yellow ridge and are primarily red with a black centre. The male’s abdomen tip finishes like a club tail.

The 7th and 8th tergum (abdominal segments) both extend outwards along the sides giving it the gradual shape of a hexagon. The 9th tergite is like the rest of the abdomen but has a pair of cerci for mating. Cerci are like claspers (which dragonflies possess) that help the male get a grasp of the female during copulation.

Females have a duller outlook. They are a light brown with red spines covering the entire thorax and the top of the head. (Males have an absence of spines on the head). The femur has spines on the edges but not colourful like the males. There are a few patches of light cyan on the coxa, the inner part of the femur and sometimes the head. The female is also brachypterous. The only difference separating her from the male is that the yellow pigment on the wings is not at all as pronounced. The female’s abdomen ends in a point (because of her ovipositor) rather than finishing like a club. Both male and female possess white-ish stripes along the top and sides of the head. The male grows up to 13 cm in length while the female is much bigger and can grow up to 18, 5 cm in length.

LONG BUT VALUABLE FOR LIFE

There was a man with four wives.
He loved his fourth wife the most and took a great care of her and gave her the best.
He also loved his third wife and always wanted to show her off to his friends.

However, he was always had a fear that she might runaway with some other man.
He loved his second wife too.
Whenever he faced some problems, he always turned to his second wife and she would always help him out.
He did not love his first wife though she loved him deeply, was very loyal to him and took great care of him.

One day the man fell very ill and knew that he is going to die soon. He told himself, "I have four wives with me. I will take one of them along with me when I die to keep company in my death."
Thus, he asked the fourth wife to die along with him and keep company. "No
way!" she replied and walked away without another word.

He asked his third wife. She said "Life is so good over here. I'm going to remarry when you die".

He then asked his second wife. She said "I'm Sorry. I can't help you this time around.

At the most I can only accompany you til your grave." By now his heart sank and turned cold. Then a voice called out: "I'll leave with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go."
the man looked up and there was his first wife.
She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition.
Greatly grieved, the man said, "I should have taken
much better care of you while I could have!"
Actually, we all have four
wives in our lives.

1. The fourth wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we
lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us when w die.

2. The third wife is our
possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they go to others.

3. the second wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we're alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

4. the first wife is our soul,
neglected in our pursuit of
material wealth and pleasure. It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go.
