Breakfast done right!!!
Andraka came up with the idea last year after reading an article on carbon nanotubes in a journal and realized that nanotubes could be used to suspend a protein which if coated onto strips of filtered paper would create a cheap and accurate test for pancreatic cancer.
Andraka became interested in pancreatic cancer after a family member and his personal hero, Steve Jobs, both died from it.
In order to develop his idea further Andraka wrote to 200 professors to ask for their help. Only one was willing – Dr Anirban Maitra at the Sol Goldman Institute at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Andraka had to officially be a ‘volunteer’ on the project to avoid the university running foul of child labor laws.
And his discovery may lead to improved testing for a range of other illnesses.
This and people standing outside their houses naked is why i love google maps
if you don’t have room for a banana dolphin on your blog, you’re running the wrong kind of blog.
and in that moment i accepted Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor
Can’t wait for november to come
I declare a time war.
Daleks scream, “EXTERMINATE!”
The Doctor died and silence fell.
There he goes, back in time.
Saving everybody’s lives.
Grab her hand and whisper, "RUN!"
Yes. I have been waiting years for us to have enough Doctors to make this post exist.
FUCKING AUSTRALIAN MORNING SHOWS
Hahahaha. I wish morning shows were like that here.
Today we learned that domestic sheep, unlike their wild cousins, don’t shed their wool each year. It turns out that over 10,000 years of breeding them for their wool has produced sheep whose wool grows all year round. So what happens when a domestic sheep isn’t shorn?
Meet Shrek, a wily Merino sheep in New Zealand who managed to avoid being shorn for 6 years in a row by hiding in a cave each time shearing season arrived. The two photos at the top of this post show you what Shrek looked like when he was finally caught back in 2004. Farmers weren’t even sure he was a sheep when they found him. Shrek was covered in an awesome, if a bit dirty, layer of fleece that weighed a whopping 60 pounds. That’s enough wool to produce 20 men’s suits.
In 2011 Shrek passed away at the impressive old age of 16, leaving the world a more awesome place for having been here.
Woah! That must have been a heavy sheep.
