OPTIMIZING PROTOCOLS

Zesting the skin of a citrus fruit like oranges releases a spray of tiny oil droplets. Citrus oil has several volatile components, meaning that it evaporates quickly at room temperature. It is also a liquid with a relatively low flash point, meaning that only modest temperatures (~40-60 degrees Celsius) are needed to generate enough vapor to ignite a vapor/air mixture. With volatile and flammable liquid fuels, a spray of droplets is an ideal platform for combustion because the essentially spherical droplets have a high surface area from which they can evaporate and provide vaporous fuel.  (Video credit: ChefSteps)

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

Video: The Fujitsu lettuce factory.

After several years of shutting down production lines in chip fabrication facilities, the Japanese electronics giant is turning its sterile, dust free factory into a hydroponic lettuce farm.

edit: Have updated the video to a working link, it’s in Japanese now but you can still catch an English version here.
