    (Photo: Craig Hatfield)You can't unring a bell, but you can unboil an egg. Gregory Weiss, a professor of biochemistry at the University of California at Irvine, and his colleagues untangled the proteins of cooked egg whites to return a key protein to its previous uncooked state. A press release quotes Weiss:“Yes, we have invented a way to unboil a hen egg,” said Gregory Weiss, UCI professor of chemistry and molecular biology & biochemistry. “In our paper, we describe a device for pulling apart tangled proteins and allowing them to refold.

    While the northeast U.S. brace for a snowstorm today that is expected to leave two to three feet of snow, there are already comparisons with the record-setting storm of 1888.

The trains couldn’t run, and many people were stuck in their homes for a week. The effects of the storm in the cities of New York and Boston spurred urban planners to start work on underground communication lines and subways.

    One of the joys of being in a small, tightly knit company like FeedBlitz is that, as colleagues, we grow close to each other.  We share our triumphs and joys; and we circle the wagons when the going gets tough. In reality, on balance, 2014 was more tough than not for the FeedBlitz crew. Of course, like any community, we don’t often share the hard times publicly.  We struggle, we manage, we support each other, and with luck nobody on the outside notices. Nothing unusual, really, in that. There are, however, some things — even the tougher ones — that are very much worth…

    Barack Obama won his two elections for president, as he reminded the American people (and congressional Republicans) during Tuesday night's State of the Union address. Additionally, his policy proposals on income inequality laid down a marker with which candidates for the White House in 2016 will have to grapple. Here's how the president framed the matter rhetorically:Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well? Or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort?More...

    ‘Gympie-Gympie’ is hardly the name you’d expect for a stinging-tree. It looks quite harmless too, but in reality, the Gympie-Gympie is one of the most venomous plants in the world. Commonly found in the rainforest areas of north-eastern Australia, the Moluccas and Indonesia, it is known to grow up to one to two meters in height. In fact, the Gympie-Gympie sting is so dangerous that it has been known to kill dogs, horses and humans alike. If you’re lucky enough to survive, you  only feel excruciating pain that can last several months and reoccur for years. Even a dry specimen…
  • Only in Japan – The LED-Illuminated Upskirt Skirt

    23 Jan 2015 | 12:14 am
    Japanese designer Kiyoyuki Amano has combined fashion and technology to create futuristic short skirts that illuminate the wearer’s thighs. Aptly named ‘Hikaru Skirt’, which means ‘Shining Skirt’, the garment comes equipped with LED lights and the miniature gyro sensors on the inside. So the skirt lights up, and the color and pattern of the light changes every time the wearer moves. Amano said that he first placed light bulbs inside a skirt on a whim, and that’s when he noticed that it created a pleasant illumination of the thighs. So he worked on the design some more and soon…

    Mr Jam
    25 Jan 2015 | 5:22 pm
    I love weddings. This writer was asked to give inspirational words of wisdom to a newly married bride. I said: "Now you can eat ANYTHING you like. Go get them donuts, girl." Doing some Deep Thinking about marriage reminded me of the fights that all couples have in the early years of a relationship. Arguments are like Paul McCartney concerts: five minutes of new stuff and then out come tons of old classics. The good news: eventually you and your partner spend a whole day arguing about whether or not you're having an argument. After that peak, the male goes quiet, and a…

One of my office neighbors says those who sit at boring desks all day eventually have violent outbursts, which is the theme of a new Hollywood blockbuster, The Accountant.

The truth is, women SHOULD back away screaming when approached by men, according to the latest findings of Science.

I could spend a whole day going in and out just to watch the doors race to get out of my way.  Ah, the male ego is a wonderful thing. But technology sometimes really annoys me.  FOR EXAMPLE, the computer has just asked: "Do you want to save changes to this document?"  and offered only "save" or "don't save" options. Why is there not a button saying: "I changed this document? I didn't mean to. My boss…

You just wait for a grown-up to say, “My, you’ve grown SO MUCH since I last saw you” and then you point to their tummies and say the same thing.

    The May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, a volcano located in state of Washington, was one of the most destructive events in the history of the United States.
