Calling all cows.

At a lab in South Carolina scientists work to grow meat for human consumption. No farms, no animal feed, and no cows. With the future in mind, these meat cultivators are working hard to make it possible to have meat in the future, when space for grazing and farms will be further limited thatn it is today. I can’t help but wonder as I read this article, how would PITA feel about this? And would vegetarians relinquish their herbivorous diets if the meat had been grown in a petri dish? Will cows become extinct?

Is grown meat, real meat?


Major protest on High St. this afternoon concerning the Egyption Government issues that I went to and got pictures and interviewed three people. Walking away feeling pretty proud I noticed that my recorder did not record any of my interviews. Somehow I must have pressed stop just as I started talking to my first guy. I’m so dissapointed!


INFINITE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOS HERE! Mosaic upon mosaic upon mosaic…it’s infinite. This is seriously one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. Click on a photo, then click on part of the photo which will zoom in showing a bunch of smaller photos, then click on one of those photos, then zoom in, then repeat. It’s awesome.

Red Bull Gives You Wings, Literally!

Cofounder of the energy drink Red Bull, Dietrich Mateschitz, has a hobby for things that go fast. While his drink may make your heart beat faster, it’s his nice collection of airplanes located in Hangar 7 at Salzburg Airport in Austria that will get your body moving faster (relative to the people on the ground of course). Here is a very nice collection of photos from the airport sporting the Red Bull logoed planes.

Cheddar Bacon Popcorn.

If you are unfamiliar with the Bacon Boys, then here’s your chance to learn a bit about their world of bacon! They have a goal. A goal to make everything taste like bacon. They began their enterprise with Baconnaise (yes, this is bacon flavored mayo) and have since come to concoct their popular Cheddar Bacon Popcorn. Now, I love bacon like any good ‘ol American, however sitting next to a bowl of this oddly flavored popcorn makes me think twice about the bacon boys goal. Commendable as it is, I can’t help but think this lil snack smells like the Beggin Strips I used to feed to my old roommate’s dog. Sorry Bacon Boys, but you’re going to have to work on this one to get my approval.

Where's popcorn's animated character?

Define Your Very Own Galaxy.

Less than one hundred years ago astronomer Edwin Hubble first discovered that the Milky Way is not the only galaxy in the universe. Today, scientists believe that there are roughly one hundred billion galaxies. Hard to imagine the universe has grown one hundred billion times its size since 1919. Now that astronomers have billions upon billions of galaxies to deal with, they are now forming more specified criteria for what makes a galaxy. Well, astronomers Duncan Forbes and Pavel Kroupa are asking you to help them out with this galaxy defining dilemma. Vote now! This article will provide more information on why galaxies are undergoing some dictionary scrutiny.
