IBM turns plastic bottles into life-saving 'ninja' MRSA, fungus fighters
End of the line for drug-resistant killer stalking hospitals?
...If a paper with an abstract that includes lines such as "Computational modelling of the terephthalamide-bisurea structures predicts zig-zag or bent arrangements where distal benzyl urea groups stabilize the high-aspect ratio aqueous supramolecular assemblies" is above your pay grade, IBM researchers teamed up with a puppeteer to create an oh-so-cutesy animation to explain the fungus-fighting properties of their ninja particles:....
...He strenuously objected and replied that the society in Germany was not a free society and couldn’t be responsible for Nazism’s extremes. I replied that it was free enough. That the parents of blind children who were exterminated under the guise “of the best medical care Germany could offer”—these same parents who received an urn of ashes when their children were said to have suddenly succumbed to some deadly disease—rose in public outrage against Hitler and put enough public pressure on him to end the “T4 Action” program in 1941. I stated that this was my greatest fear with his position and that once the sanctity of life was demolished as a cultural anchor that the legal protections of personhood, being redefined and lowered to include animals, would deliver a new human holocaust. He didn’t disagree, he merely restated his position with all of its implications. - See more at: http://www.grtl.org/?q=node/449#sthash.DQ4lGCXE.dpuf

Did I hear the weatherman right, Don? 65 below wind chill predicted for tonight? Is that even possible?
Yikes!!! I didn't hear that, but if it's true I'm not going outside.
Actually it is possible. I read a report the other day that a record low was recently recorded in Antarctica...138 degrees F below zero.
The coldest temperature possible is called absolute zero, or minus 459.67 degrees F. At that point all molecular motion stops.
Your eyeballs wouldn't move to look at the thermometer, and your brain would be a solid chunk of ice.

Frozen meat doesn't spoil as quickly!

Toll House cookes are Chocolate chip cookies.
Rice Crispies are Rice Bubbles
Biscuits are scones
Bacon Slices are Bacon Rashers (but very different)
Cheerios - Cheerios since we import them but Cherrios have always been small coctail sausages.
Cookies - biscuits
Pancakes - Piklets but we eat them as a sweet perhaps with jam and cream
I think your pancakes are like our small Crepes and we can have them as a savoury or sweet with strawberries cream and icing sugar.
And, confectioners sugar is icing sugar
The most common:
Bangers are sausages
Mash is mashed potato
Jello is jelly
Ketchup is Tomato sauce
Cotton candy is Fairy Floss
Can you think of a food that we may call something different?
Totally understand. Walked around the dog park today in only a light sweatshirt, it felt too warm for my jacket after the last week. I considered flip flops, but that seems like taking it a bit far
How to tell it's above zero in Minnesota today:
