Smarter than a first-grader? Crows can perform as well as 7- to 10-year-olds on cause-and-effect water displacement tasks
In Aesop's fable about the crow and the pitcher, a thirsty bird happens upon a vessel of water, but when he tries to drink from it, he finds the water level out of his reach. Not strong enough to knock over the pitcher, the bird drops pebbles into it -- one at a time -- until the water level rises enough for him to drink his fill. New research demonstrates the birds' intellectual prowess may be more fact than fiction.

Spinach could lead to alternative energy more powerful than Popeye
Spinach gave Popeye super strength, but it also holds the promise of a different power for a group of scientists: the ability to convert sunlight into a clean, efficient alternative fuel. Physicists are using spinach to study the proteins involved in photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert the sun's energy into carbohydrates used to power cellular processes. Artificial photosynthesis could allow for the conversion of solar energy into renewable, environmentally friendly hydrogen-based fuels.

Chandler was an American novelist who had an immense impact on the detective genre. His well-plotted and brutally realistic novels, among them The Big Sleep, depict the seedy lowlife of Los Angeles and feature Philip Marlowe, a hard-boiled yet honorable private detective who became the prototype for the tough-guy private eye of many subsequent American detective novels. Before beginning his fiction writing career in the 1930s, Chandler held an executive position in what industry? Discuss

Blood Type

Human blood is classified according to the presence or absence of specific markers, called antigens, on the surface of red blood cells. The most commonly encountered blood group system is the ABO system, which classifies blood based on the presence or absence of two antigens, A and B. There are four blood types in this grouping, A, B, AB, and O. Type AB indicates the presence of both antigens and O the absence of both. What do the symbols + and – represent in the classification of blood? Discuss

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon

The Hanging Gardens were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. According to legend, Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II built the gardens around 600 BCE to soothe his wife, who was homesick for her mountainous homeland. Though extensively documented by ancient historians, no extant Babylonian texts mention the gardens, and there is little physical evidence of their existence. Alternative theories suggest that the gardens were built by the Assyrian king Sennacherib near what modern city?

Hammurabi

The sixth king of Babylonia, Hammurabi founded an empire that was eventually destroyed by raids from Asia Minor. He is best remembered for his code of laws, which addresses issues like business and family relations, labor, private property, and personal injuries. Though generally humanitarian, Hammurabi's Code relies on the retributive "eye for an eye" theory of punishment. A nearly complete version of the code, carved on a diorite column, was recovered in 1902. Where can you visit it today?
