Nicole Mann, the First Native American Woman in Space, on Gardening in Zero Gravity
Nicole Mann was busy growing dwarf tomatoes aboard the International Space Station (ISS) this morning just before I reached her by phone, in a call patched from New York through Mission Control in Houston, Texas, and up to the station, orbiting 400 km (250 mi.) above the Earth. Dwarf tomatoes are no minor thing for a station program preparing human beings for long-term stays on the moon and later Mars, where they will have to learn to live off the land—which includes growing their own food. “I was testing out the different light sources and different fertilizers to see how that affects the growth of the tomatoe...

Butter chicken has helped me at every stage of my life – and has always united my family
I grew up eating this comforting, warming dish and it remains just as important to me todayI remember my first taste of butter chicken. I must have been about 10 years old. My dad ’s cousins used to marinate a whole chicken from their farm in yoghurt, spices, ginger, garlic and chilli, before cooking it over an open fire: not everyone owned a tandoor.Everything they used was from their own land: deliciously sweet and tangy tomatoes, homemade yoghurt, white makhan (a cultured butter). It was such an experience – and such a beautiful dish – that throughout the long train journey home after visiting them, I would hassle...

I have never eaten cucumber, onion – or an egg. Can I cure my extreme food phobias?
I ’ve always been a fussy eater. Could an expert show me a life beyond the kids’ menu?Is anyone more reviled than fussy eaters?

What Causes Anal Itching?

The incubation period is usually 1-2 months and eggs can survive outside humans for 2-3 weeks. Adult worms migrate at night from the anus to the perianal skin and vulvar areas causing anal or vulvar itching. The itching can cause sleep problems and scratching can cause secondary bacterial inf...
