And why, if oatmeal is so good for us, do we eat that only in the morning as well? Apologies to the Palinites, but nutritionists are starting to realize that you and I like our oatmeal and OJ before we start the day because we evolved to like it that way—because enjoying the two together is healthier than eating each of them alone. Epidemiologist David R. Jacobs, Ph.D., of the University of Minnesota calls it food synergy, and he, along with many other nutritionists, believes it might explain why Italians drizzle cold-pressed olive oil over tomatoes and why the Japanese pair raw fish with soybeans. "The complexity of food combinations is fascinating because it's tested in a way we can't test drugs: by evolution," says Jacobs. Tomatoes & Avocadoes Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a pigment-rich antioxidant known as a carotenoid, which reduces cancer risk and cardiovascular disease.

Yet, despite its beauty, the shawl is perhaps more a wonder of nature than of fashion design. The cape was created over eight years using silk from more than 1 million Madagascar golden orb spiders (Nephila madagascariensis). These spiders, large enough to fill the palm of your hand, are almost completely blind. Weight for weight, typical spider silk is 20 times as strong as steel and four times as tough as Kevlar. Silk is also biodegradable and does not elicit an immune response, which means it could be put to a range of uses within the human body. Forbidden Fruit: Illegal Fruits & Foods - StumbleUpon.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2012 - Den of Geek - StumbleUpon

As 2011 draws to a close, one eye is inevitably on the treats that are lying ahead for 2012. With that in mind, we've got our line-up of, as things stands, the 25 films that are brightest on our radar. Now, a couple of disclaimers. There are films that haven't made the cut here simply because we don't know a fat lot about them yet, or at least not enough to get us fired up. Jack The Giant Killer, Rise Of The Guardians, Red Tails, Chronicle and Dark Shadows all fit into that category. Plus there are the films that we suspect will turn out strongly, but what we've seen of them so far hasn't blown us away (Brave, Skyfall). We've also had to exclude films that have already had a release in either the UK or the US. However, that's still left us with a lot of tasty cinema. American Pie: The Reunion, though, is looking more promising.

Carnarvon, Northern Cape

Originally established in 1860 as the village of Harmsfontein, it was located within the territory of Schietfontein, the only water source in the area and the site of the Rhenish mission station founded in 1847 by the missionary, Rev. Christian Wilhelm Alheit. Some of the original mission buildings are still in use. The name was changed in 1874 in honour of the British Colonial Secretary, Lord Carnarvon (1831–1890), whose son, also Lord Carnarvon, was the famous Egyptologist. The main agricultural activity is sheep farming.[3] A site near Carnarvon has been chosen for the construction from 2009 of MeerKAT, an array of 50 or more 12m diameter radio dishes, a pilot project for the massive Square Kilometre Array telescope.
