Hope you're all enjoying summer!


I like to tweet random things during the week (follow me @MrEpid), but for those who don’t use Twitter, here are some interesting posts I’ve come across this past week:

  • Ars Technica reports on someone who felt that Universities/Colleges were not doing enough to pass on information and research. So he made a 32 GB file with over 18,000 research articles and uploaded it to The Pirate Bay.
  • Marion Nestle at Food Politics highlights some of the “winners” from CSPI’s “Xtreme Eating Awards.” For instance, the Cold Stone Creamery PB&C Shake has 2,010 calories.
  • Fooducate tells us how tuna goes from being in fish form to canned form.
  • Andre Picard over at The Globe and Mail reports on whether we should intervene when a child’s obesity becomes life threatening (with comments from Dr Yoni Freedhoff).

The redesign took a while to do, but it’s getting there. I’ll be back to updating next week.

Have a great weekend everybody!
