Bloody Scientists!

Mutterings continued.

From The Australian - "Grazing dieters do it the hard way

FOOD grazers beware. Numerous small meals during the day may crank up your food intake, not decrease it.

The warning comes courtesy of new US and British research revealing that the first bites of food trigger key hunger centres in the brain.

"The drive to eat is massively stimulated by the start of eating," said brain scientist Gareth Leng of the University of Edinburgh, co-leader of the research team, which reports its findings in the journal Cell Metabolism." Bloody nora! Just when I found an excuse to nibble and nosh all day.

Hurray for scientists! "Scientists teleport information

BEAMING people in Star Trek fashion is still in the realms of science fiction, but physicists in Denmark have teleported information from light to matter - bringing quantum communication and computing closer to reality.

Until now scientists have teleported similar objects such as light or single atoms over short distances from one spot to another in a split second.

But Professor Eugene Polzik and his team at the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University in Denmark have made a breakthrough by using both light and matter.

I had yet another 'seniors' moment just now. I bought myself a nice bit of rump steak for dins (for the last couple of days, I haven't had time for lunch and so have been nibbling Cruskits when I can. I like Cruskits, they are very more-ish.) and put it in my George Forman (TM) griller. And forgot to put the lid down. So, the steak was cooking away nicely on one side, while the other side...wasn't.
