Quotes

"With this outbreak so far, I am not worried about it spreading to the UK" she said
"It’s a mission which is very close to my heart, and the chance to help achieve it and the mix of work that the foundation supports in arts, education and social justice is just too hard to resist.”"
Children aged five to 14 use a passport to learning to "travel to different learning destinations like museums, farms, and businesses."
Co-author Dr Daniel Pincheira-Donoso, from the School of Life Sciences, University of Lincoln, UK, said: "We observed that more sex (or at least more pregnancies) means shorter life, very much like the rock star adage 'live fast, die young'. Along the same lines, the study revealed that reptiles which sexually mature at a younger age will likely have shorter lives, while those who prefer to delay sexual maturity will probably live longer. And lastly, we found that vegetarians live longer than their carnivorous counterparts. Vegetal food is an intrinsically low-nutrition food, so we think that those who have these diets experience a reduction in reproductive rates, which in turn increases their lifespan."
