8 Books To Read Over A Long Holiday Weekend
Beware: These addictive reads will keep you turning the pages -- so much so, you might just forget to barbecue. Girl Underwater By Claire Kells 304 pages; Dutton College sophomore and lifelong swimmer Avery Delacorte is heading home for Thanksgiving break when her airplane crashes over the Colorado Rockies. Just as the scene reaches its climax (sorry, we just can't spoil this one), the author tears us away from that and zooms weeks into the future, to the hospital where Avery is now in recovery. The novel continues to alternate between the immediate aftermath of the crash, where the few survivors struggle to find foo...

Neanderthal Study Argues The Original Paleo Diet Included Flavorful Herbs
As you've surely figured out by now, especially if you're Facebook friends with any Crossfit enthusiasts, the fastest-growing diet of the past few years is the Paleo diet. It restricts adherents' food intake to ingredients that were -- at least theoretically -- consumed by hominids in the Paleolithic Age, which ended sometime around 10,000 B.C.E. That means no wheat, no sugar, no alcohol and certainly no artificial additives. Paleo is surely one of the most imaginatively daring diets ever devised. The underpinning idea is that the key to ideal health is to return, as much as possible, to the way our ancestors ate in some...

Humans don't time subsecond intervals like a stopwatch - Narkiewicz M, Lambrechts A, Eichelbaum F, Yarrow K.
Many activities require the ability to estimate intervals of time in an accurate and flexible manner. A traditional and popular account suggests that humans possess a kind of internal stopwatch that can be started, paused, and stopped at will. Here we test... (Source: SafetyLit: All (Unduplicated))

James Barnett obituary
My colleague James Barnett, who has died aged 91, was a scientist passionately devoted to the study of yeasts, the microscopic fungi at the heart of the production of wine, bread and beer. He seamlessly wove his career with his pastime over more than 70 years, beginning his laboratory-based research in yeast taxonomy and nutrition in 1953 at Cambridge University in the Low Temperature Station for Research in Biochemistry and Biophysics. He later moved to the Institute of Food Research in Norwich.Although an assiduous and meticulous experimentalist, he made his lasting mark in work of a more scholarly nature. With Roger Pay...

New Books Party: books received this week | @GrrlScientist
This week, I give you an overview of some science, maths, modern art, political science and nature books that I've been reading.Below the jump, I mention the books that I received recently, either as gifts or as review copies, or that I purchased somewhere. These are the books that I may review in more depth later, either here or in print somewhere in the world. When I get new books, I like to share them with people. Unfortunately, you are all so far away, so I cannot host a book party in my crib where you can look then over, so I'll do the next best thing. I'll host a book party on my blog each Friday of the week when I e...

Plantwatch: Falling leaves, hardy survivors and edible treats
The countryside is looking very different after this week's bitter winds sent leaves falling and trees are looking much more ragged. Some trees are completely bare, especially horse chestnuts, but others hang on to their leaves longer and are now changing colour – oaks have splashes of brown or yellow amongst green leaves, the green is fading on ash leaves, and when the sun shines on beech trees they now light up with magnificent yellows, oranges and browns.Even though it feels like winter, there are still a few hardy flowers hanging on, although the frosts will finish most of them off. On damp walls are some lilac i...
