Source:LiveScience This one web site tells me such a variety of information. Today I saw the map showing the melt line of the artic ice making 2012 an all time high for amount of ice melted.. Then I learned that science folk had slid a syringe into a wine jug buried with King Tut to find out if he preferred red or white- the residue showed it had been made with red grapes. Archaeologists explored a tomb near Thebes in 2005 and discovered an wooden artificial big toe attached to the foot of a mummy. The fake body part could prove to be the earliest working prosthetic body part to date. Another article tells me that originally all humans had brown eyes until a mutation about 8000 years ago and all people with blue eyes are from that same line. One of my favorites is the new technology not yet perfected but diabetecs will be able to test their blood sugar using their salivia instead of pricking fingers to get blood. I am sure that will be well received. Pictures of the tiniest frog who is 1/4 the size of a dime. Neuroscientist Chiara Cirelli at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and others believe that a good night’s sleep helps us learn more the next day. The study goes on to say about the physical and emotional and intelletual changes without enough sleep. Yikes I have to go take a nap……..
