Three things to prove that one should not be overly selective regarding sources of science reading

Three different sources, all entertaining.

Thing one: Three British universities are about to start a project that looks to harvest re-usable material from human faecal matter. The “material” will include water, methane, electrolytes, etc. and the machine to do that harvesting – a lattice-like filter – should be portable when finished. (The Engineer)

Thing two: Britain and Belgium counts the largest population percentages who suffer from hay fever. Birch trees are earliest out to produce pollen during the hay fever season, and sufferers should also avoid “trigger-foods” like celery. (Daily Mail)

Thing three: “Sexual deprivation increases ethanol intake”… in fruit flies. This can apparently be mapped to humans. What gives? (Science)

Seen anything interesting? Let me know!
