The study was designed to investigate the effects of modern agricultural methods on the nutrient content of foods. The study, based on U.S. According to Davis, establishing meaningful changes in nutrient content over a 50-year time interval was a significant challenge. "It is much more reliable to look at average changes in the group rather than in individual foods, due to uncertainties in the 1950 and 1999 values," Davis said. These nutrients included protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin and ascorbic acid. NOTE: For a color photo of Dr. [ Print | E-mail AAAS and EurekAlert!

A real hands on craft! Alginate/plaster of paris sculptures. I love crafts and I love new things. When I get to craft with new supplies or techniques, I totally flip. So, I bought a couple boxes of plaster of Paris a while back ago with no real intentions on how to use the stuff. Searching Amazon on my phone out of boredom one day I ran into the most awesome stuff – alginate. Now, what is alginate you might ask?

Design Crush: Elizabeth Kimberly Designs I spotted Elizabeth Kimberly Designs over on Caitlin Creer’s blog some time ago and just dug it out of my bookmarks this morning through my cold induced haze.

Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean. 1. Great glaciation is the theory of the final state that our universe is heading toward. 2. Solipsism is a philosophical theory, which asserts that nothing exists but the individual’s consciousness. Don’t you believe me? As a result, which parts of existence can we not doubt? 3. George Berkeley, the father of Idealism, argued that everything exists as an idea in someone’s mind. The idea being that if the stone really only exists in his imagination, he could not have kicked it with his eyes closed. 4. Everybody has heard of Plato. In addition to this stunning statement, Plato, being a monist, said that everything is made of a single substance. 5. 6. Enternalism is the exact opposite of presentism. 7. 8. 9. 10.
