Apparently, sunflowers have their own circadian rhythms. I figured the leaves on the stalk helped tell the sunflower where to move but Stacey Harmer of UC Davis says otherwise.

"Even though they don't sleep, many plants have 'clock genes' similar to those that direct the sleep-wake cycle in animals. For years, Harmer had been looking for a link between those genes and the release of a hormone called auxin, which controls stem growth."
Sunflowers have circadian rhythms, scientists say — and a growth trick that helps them keep their faces toward the sun.

Do we need all these lights on at night? The night sky is a beautiful sight to behold but it's unfortunate so many people aren't aware of this.
Researchers have compiled a detailed worldwide atlas documenting artificial light in the night sky worldwide.

Many people have lost sight of nature. I remember we used to see loads of beautiful stars. Now it is much harder to see them.

Take that, OPEC...  While I agree market regulation is important, the oil companies will still be able to survive.  They made large sums when oil futures were insanely high.  Now that the dollar is strong and reserves are high they don't want the gravy train to slow down.  
Iran said on Wednesday it would resist any plan to restrain its oil output as fellow OPEC ministers tried to persuade the country to join the first global oil pact in 15 years.

The problem is the infrastructure keeps the oil value there. So if less people needed it, others could benefit from it and the wealthy countries don't want anyone to get a leg up.

There are moments in our lives which we used to celebrate. I remember when a new album from one of my favorite bands would be released and there was an automatic heed to the call of this new sound. The enthusiasm I felt as each new song played and I thought of what it meant to me and others. The monotony of life can try to dull this blade but I have decided that it's essential to keep it sharp.

Therefore, Radiohead's new album, A Moon Shaped Pool is now out. Although it isn't my favorite, I'm excited none the less.

"Does it pay to be ethical?"  Yes, but it just costs more.
Many factors influence how consumers invoke their monetary power, but increasingly, perhaps, personal ethics determine spending habits.

A wonderful comparison of maps and population statistics.  I'm not the only one who feels drawn to a coast.

This sushi is a great value for South Beach. The only reason they lose a star is because they gave me escolar, the snake mackerel. Too many sushi houses think it's ok to sell this fish and I guess, we the consumer, let them. If you don't know why you shouldn't eat it, I suggest you do a search of it. I'll still go back but I'll try to make sure I don't end up with "white tuna" (escloar)

I'm not a Cuban cuisine expert but I am quite the foodie. There is nothing bad I can say about my visit to Padrino's but I guarantee it is where I will visit next time I am in Miami. I had the lunch buffet and sampled as much as I could, maybe more than I should have - the food is just awesome. I highly recommend a eating here if you are in the area.

I tried the falafel sandwich with some babaganoush. While the falafel was alright, I didn't feel that the seasoning for everything else was done so well. The hummus tasted pasty and plain. It might have been recovered by some tahini but it was forgotten in my order. Pickled vegetables had barely a trace of acidity (which might have helped the hummus as well). This lack of acid carried over into the babaganoush. There were hints of roastiness but it wasn't the smokey kind which I expected. I really wish that the inclusion of lemon were something they did to help open one's pallatte. Perhaps using some sumac on their purees would make them tastier. Overall I felt the food lacked authenticity and proper seasoning.

I had a chance to do a tour at Cardinal Spirits over the weekend and I left very impressed. Logan did a great job going over distillation and how they make their liquor. By taking a higher quality cut from the process, the alcohol has a better finish and cleaner experience. This was confirmed when we got to sample just about everything they produce and I was pleasantly surprised just how good it is... the cocktails too. The fact they are moving into single malt territory is awesome and I can hardly wait. The only problem is picking which bottle to drink. I totally recommend a tour here.

For basically a college bar and grill. The beer battered haddock is really good. I went during the offseason in July so I'm sure things are pretty wired during school time. There are lots of local taps available in this multi monitered sports bar. I'd go back for the fish any day though.

I thought Bub's wasn't very good but B-Town Diner was worse. I had a cheeseburger with fries and was very disappointed with the food I was served. The meat was hard like a puck and wasn't seasoned properly and although I had asked for mayonnaise on the bun it was dry. The fries looked like they had been cooked two to three times and had enough salt on them to de-ice my front walkway. I would have told my waiter but he never asked us how anything was. I don't plan on returning.

Oh where to begin... Let's start with the amazing food they make. The ingredients are sourced straight from the farm. You can taste the freshness in the tomatillo salsa and a well balance guacamole. The fresh meats, the authentic sprinkle of queso fresco on the refried beans and house sauce that ties everything together. I know what you've heard, it's a small place and it's hard to get a table. Personally, the cozy atmosphere is charming and during the summers one can eat on the patio. Cafe Corazon isn't above selling menu items for take out which gives you yet another option. You still want a table? I don't blame you; while you wait there are a host of wonderful mixed drinks to get you started and if you're bold like me you don't mind eating your meal right there at the bar. Absolute must try if you like Mexican cuisine. Worth the wait/price whatever obstacle you encounter.
