Quotes

...Nitrite-oxidizing bacteria are important players in nitrogen cycling since they convert the toxic nitrite to the less harmful nitrate. "Humans exploit this process in biological wastewater treatment. Moreover, the formed nitrate is a substrate for other important microbial processes and a source of nitrogen for many plants" explains Hanna Koch, first author of the study and Ph D student at the Department of Microbiology and Ecosystem Science of the University of Vienna...
"In my research, I've found that humans adapt to bad smells quite quickly; we end up switching off our senses to them" he pointed out
...But you don't have to actually distinguish between them in order to block interference. As the authors of the new paper write, "The mere possibility of obtaining information that could distinguish between overlapping states inhibits quantum interference."
...Hugo Messias of the Universidad de Concepción in Chile and the Centro de AstronomiaAstronomia e Astrofísica da Universidade de Lisboa in Portugal. "Einstein predicted in his theory of General Relativity that, given enough mass, light does not travel in a straight line but will be bent in a similar way to a normal lens."
