    Burning Calories...

    This is a guest post from Eduardo Quintana Miranda, Nuclear Physicist at the Cienfuegos University (Cuba).

    Let’s Stop...

    Do you know that baby pets in small plastic baggies are sold like crazy in China? Little turtles, kingfish and lizards… Just because these small animals are cute, people are choosing to buy them as a gift or for themselves to cheer up. Called “animals keychain“, this cruelty is expanding...
