New Found Bacteria Eats Hazardous Waste
Tiny single-cell organisms discovered living underground could help with the problem of nuclear waste disposal, say researchers involved in a study at The Univ. of Manchester.
Although bacteria with waste-eating properties have been discovered in relatively pristine soils before, this is the first time that microbes that can survive in the very harsh conditions expected in radioactive waste disposal sites have been found.

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover
My people getting it!
The city of Ferguson deserves this hornets nest. The last tweet is 100 percent true, they’ve lost the ability to govern, and the disrespect they’ve shown to the citizenry is obvious and beyond contempt.
This one has already been submitted, but I feel that it needs to be resubmitted with the following fact:
When this chapter of the manga originally came out, The Sixth Sense was just airing in Japanese theaters. With Araki being big into western media he had already seen it, but most of Japan had not.
Jolyne didn’t just spoil the movie for the people watching it in the manga, she spoiled it for every JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure reader who had yet to go see it. Which would have been god knows how many people.
Scientist in the Spotlight: Resurrecting Extinct Predators
Russell Garwood, a research fellow at the Univ. of Manchester, England, worked with Jason Dunlop, a curator at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin, to create a video of the movements of an extinct arachnid. The arachnid was one of the first land predators and lived 410 million years ago. Garwood and Dunlop used exceptionally detailed fossils from the Natural History Museum in London to recreate its walking gait.
Using CT scans, mesh models and open-source CGI software, they recreated the joints in the creature’s legs and learned that the arachnid ran its prey down. The arachnids were the top of the land-dwelling food chain and the new video brings these fearsome, long-gone animals back from the dead while shedding light on their physiology and evolution.

If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”
