  • How do you cuddle your lady right? Ask Smoove A, the Amphipod. Why? Because “Smoove has guarded his ladies to unforeseen heights of evolutionary fitness. Damn.”
  • There has been a ton of writing, reviewing, rehashing, reblogging, and reconsideration of said reblogging about the recent discovery of bacteria possibly using arsenic instead of phosphorous in their DNA. Rosie Redfield’s thoughtful piece is a real standout in the fray. She provides an excellent and highly critical take not on the press, but on the science. While there’s much to discuss and debate, this piece is worth a read – the comments as well.
  • We all love our stories of two species coevolving – either as mutualists or in an escalating arms race through time. Does coevolution actually promote species diversification, however? Maybe not.

    One thing I would really like to reply to is that weightloss program fast can be achieved by the correct diet and exercise. A person’s size not just affects the look, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, major depression, health risks, as well as physical capabilities are influenced in putting on weight. It is possible to just make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a problem may be the perpetrator. While too much food rather than enough workout are usually accountable, common health concerns and widespread prescriptions might greatly amplify size. Thanks alot : ) for your post right here.
