Takara Tomy have come up with a new way to enjoy fresh fruit juice straight from the fruit itself. Just take the Gurefuru Chuchu, use the “leaf” to open up a little hole and then insert the main character-themed part (“Mr. Gurefuru”) into the top of the fruit. Twist him round lots of times for around one minute to churn up all the insides of the fruit and then take him out again. Now just use a conventional straw slurp up (“chuchu”) the delicious and refreshing juice you’ve created!
Simply, cheerful but practical,
How can identical twins grow up with different personalities? “Jumping genes” move around in neurons and alter the way they work
- Genes we inherit and environmental factors both influence human behaviors. Scientists have recently discovered other underlying processes at work.
- So-called jumping genes, segments of DNA that can copy and paste themselves into new places in the genome, can alter the activity of full-length genes. Occasionally they will turn on neighboring genes in these locations. That activity occurs more in the brain than other areas, resulting in different traits and behaviors, even in closely related individuals.
- These mobile genetic elements may also turn out to play a role in people’s disposition to psychiatric disorders.
- Researchers are now beginning to investigate whether jumping genes help us adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions.
I just don’t see why Israel secretly gets nukes, but when Iran openly has a nuclear program, we’re suddenly all over them and on the edge of war?
I don’t know if it’s me playing devil’s advocate or the blatant racism involved, but what if Iran actually is doing this for the power source and not…
Here’s a thought exercise for you:
In 1945, the Manhattan Project fails, but the Nazi nuclear program succeeds in producing an atomic bomb. Would you be living in a world where you could ask, or even think of, the above question. Would you even be alive at all?
