Mercury in seals linked to vanishing sea ice 3.4.2009 Environmental News Network
Every summer, seal hunters in the village of Ulukhaktok in Canada’s Northwest Territories carve out small pieces of muscle from ringed seals during their annual subsistence hunt. As part of their collaboration with Arctic researchers, they carefully bag the tissue samples, draw blood, and measure each seal. After more than 30 years of monitoring the seals, the researchers have noticed a disturbing pattern: levels of the dangerous metal mercury in the seals are connected to the state of sea ice on the ocean.

Food Grows On Trees! 1.4.2009 GOOD
Urban gathering and gleaning are taking off. Here are six organizations that help people find free, fresh food in the city. My dad emailed me the other day. His missives are brief and informative—this one was nine words long. 'I've had miner's lettuce four nights in a row.' During spring in Los Olivos, Califonia, miner's lettuce ( ) is abundant in the woods behind my parents' house. It's like spinach but crunchier, and it's great in a salad. His email… ...

Beer by the beaker for the academic crowd 30.3.2009 LA Times: Most Emailed
It's a moment seemingly torn from the pages of the "Good Will Hunting" script. A scruffy college student in baggy jeans and baseball cap walks into a new bar called the Lab Gastropub just off the USC campus. He takes in the chalkboard tables, the white-tiled walls, the beakers full of beer, the leather study chairs and bookshelves packed with science texts.
