Wished I had this option when I was doing the business traveling. I could do very well with a curling iron!

NYTimes.com reported that in this article that anyone with willpower can be a morning person. Obviously I lack willpower after 32 years. Took the “Are you a real morning person?” test. I passed. I’m a 10-14, almost night owl (surprise, surprise) – You love the night life, and enjoy staying up late and sleeping late into the morning. But you can also be flexible and adapt when your sleep pattern is disrupted. Well said.

Fungi Discovered In The Amazon Will Eat Your Plastic | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation

 

Fungi Discovered In The Amazon Will Eat Your Plastic | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation. A students’ research discovered:

“The fungi, Pestalotiopsis microspora, is the first anyone has found to survive on a steady diet of polyurethane alone and–even more surprising–do this in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment that is close to the condition at the bottom of a landfill.” 

I hope they find major funding so that they can prioritize and carry on with this research, fast tracked, and end up with affordable mass-market solution that all countries can adopt, so that we can finally use plastic with peace of mind and say goodbye properly when we are done with these super hardy plastic.

Don’t you just love mushrooms? ;D
