A recipe for the ancient oceans

So even though I love oceans, I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know all the ingredients in the recipe for thems but it turns out that sulfate is one of them. At least for our ancient oceans.

The article is entitled “Life in Earth’s Primordial Sea was Starved for Sulfate” from the University of Faculty of Science British Columbia. You are never too old to learn something new.

Turtle island

As I have said many times before, the turtle is one of my favorite animals. I had them as pets and over the years I’ve really grown to love sea turtles. My kids can tell you how much I like turtles by pointing to my collection of turtles.

Anyway, when I came across this article, “Origin of the Unique Ventilatory Apparatus of Turtles: How the Tortoise’s ribs got embedded in it’s Shell” at the University of the Witwatersrand, I knew I had to post it.

Enjoy!
