Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

I did lose hope. But you know, I’d get it back.
trans-parenting:

This ad apparently appeared in the Star Tribune, Minnesota’s largest state newspaper, yesterday.  Sponsored by a conservative Catholic group it urges parents to oppose a policy change (that is expected to pass) that would allow for trans high school athletes to participate in sports with proper accommodations in place.
These fear-mongering tactics are without evidence, misleading, and as tiresome as they are offensive.  It is always drumming up fear over “men” in private spaces with girls (I have yet to see a single statement like this addressing transmen in male spaces) and always with some implication (subtle or not) that trans people are deceptive, threatening, and quite possibly sexual predators.
The proposed policy is simple, and has plenty of barriers in place that would prevent abuse (not to mention the other existent rules & laws in place that would cover any potential concerning behavior).  Requiring a confirming letter from both a parent/guardian and medical professional is more than enough “proof” of gender, and the accommodations provided are common sense and in line with similar high school policies from California as well as many colleges & universities.
But, as much as I am confident that this will pass, you can bet I will be sending off a couple emails to share with these individuals just how important this stuff is.
And to the Minnesota Child Protection League shame on you.

I had this thing about your chair. I wouldn’t let anyone touch it. One night a janitor came by, he tried to move the chair, and I freaked out. I almost shot him.
