How can you continue to expand your knowledge of the world around you?
The trail turns to Scientific American which publishes a 60 second podcast.
You can afford a little time to do this. It's only 60 seconds.
Just enough time to get a nugget a day, or to enjoy several at a time. Recent podcasts covered:
- The biochemical cascade caused by the common cold virus ultimately produces a protein, called carabin, that stops the sniffles.
- The energy requirements of mammals combined with the energy costs of hunting prey mean that no carnivorous land mammal could ever be much bigger than the biggest polar bears.
- A new study finds that lost dogs are found more often than cats, probably because a much higher percentage of dogs than cats carries some form of identification.
You will be glad you did. You will be more prepared for the trail.
