Notes for July 7th

  • More about perennial grains.  I agree, it would be great if we could have them.  I don't know why we don't.  
  • A fairly interesting look at the food preferences of man-eating lions (obviously, they don't only eat people).
  • Ants with worms...broadly speaking ants with mind-control worms.
  • Holy cow, I can't believe this is a problem.  Because of some unexpected storms, a hydro plan in the Pacific NW was making so much power that other facilities in the region had to shut down (gas and coal plants).  I'm not a huge fan of hydro because the impoundments associated with them are usually bad for streams, but some strategic use of hydro is certainly going to be helpful.  In this case, they have so much power being generated that they don't know what to do with it (literally).
