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.

Groove-Billed Ani (Crotophaga sulcirostris) -
A small sized member of the cuckoo family, it is known for having deep ridges running down its large bill. (I am not sure what these are for). It has black iridescent feathers, and a tail the length of its body. It is easily distinguished as a cuckoo because of the orientation of its toes. Two toes point forward and two point backwards for better mobility on the ground.
The nesting habits of this do not consist of stealing another bird’s nest. Instead, they live in small communal groups, laying all eggs in one nest and taking turns incubating and caring for the hatchlings.
They forage on the ground for insects and arthropods, and will occasionally eat fruits and berries. They are common in tropical areas of South America and the Southern states during summer.
I Painted My Nails 7 Hours Ago and Thought They Were Dry Then I Did Something and it Turns Out They Weren’t: my autobiography.The nail polish will harden up instantly if you dip your fingertips in ice-cold water.
also spray them with spray-on cooking oil before soaking them in the ice water. it makes them shiny and slick.

WHAT IS THIS.
I REMEMBER THIS.
BUT FROM WHAT?!
That’s Face from Nick Junior. I remember this too XD
I feel really old suddenly. I just sprouted a gray hair
My audio production class was taught by one of the animators of Face. He told us that there was actually an audio recording of Face’s voice actor saying a bunch inappropriate adult things in Face’s voice which they would sometimes listen to when they weren’t busy animating.
