Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

Another all-satin quilt: satin front, satin back, satin in your face! Improvised wonky satin squares in lots of bright colors backed in ivory satin. The only downside to the all-satin quilt is that your baby will henceforth demand to be referred to as “your royal highness”.

As a young architect and wanna-be fine artist, I am absolutely mesmerized by artist Jeremy Mann.
The way he instills the somber energy and flow in his cityscapes, bringing them to just the right level of abstraction, makes you feel as though you are there with him in a dream you can’t quite remember clearly.
