A class of Wisconsin eight-graders designed and built a 3D-printed prosthetic hand for a six-year-old named Ariah, who was born without a right hand. Built as part of a forward-thinking robotics school program called FIRST , the prosthetic piece is more than just a heart-warming gift for Ariah—the customized hand was created in the style of Ariah’s favorite movie, Frozen, and is covered in shades of blue and snowflake patterns. The Disney-inspired prosthetic hand was created using only $20 worth of materials and even includes the name “Queen Ariah” embossed on the turquoise cuff.

Comments Off on Melting polar ice is revealing life forms frozen for thousands of years

As climate change continues to eat away at Earth’s glaciers and melt polar landscapes, things inside them frozen for millennia are starting to come alive again. Thawing permafrost in Siberia and melting glaciers in Greenland are slowly unearthing a host of ancient life forms ranging from viruses and bacteria to plants and even some animals that have been cryogenically preserved there for thousands of years.

Toronto-based RAW Design designed fur-like warming huts for ice skaters at the frozen Assiniboine River in Winnipeg. These fun sculptures called NUZZLES are made from foal bristles and can be sculpted into informal seating, glowing light sources, or act as standing spaces that help visitors warm up. The project was awarded first prize at the annual Winnipeg Warming Hut Competition .

After recent rumors that the Discovery Channel was going to cut the last episode of their Frozen Planet series – the one that deals exclusively with climate change – people were outraged and an  online petition was organized. Almost 84,000 curious individuals slapped their names on the Change.org petition asking Discovery to air the episode, and the people have won. Yesterday, Discovery announced that they will in fact be airing the series in full starting on Sunday, March 18 and it will be capped off by episode number seven, “Frozen Planet: On Thin Ice,” which warns the human race of the dangers of our melting ice caps .

How can I use up “past it” frozen vegetables?

Comments Off on How can I use up “past it” frozen vegetables?

We’ve had an email from Joanna: I found some part-used bags of frozen peas, sweetcorn and broccoli at the bottom of my chest freezer – expiry date 2009! My hubs is happy to ignore expiry dates but we tried some of the peas and they were tough and tasted washed out, not good! Any other options than just giving them to my worms? I know what you mean with “washed out” – even stuff in date sometimes ends up tasting like freezer ice in our freezer. If I was sure it was just a texture/taste issue, I’d probably give the veggies to our chickens and let them turn them into more palatable-for-us eggs. Wild birds would probably nom them up too. Depending on quite how “freezer” they taste, they might still be fine for turning into soup or for use in long-cooked casseroles. Any washed-out flavour disguising recipe suggestions? If you’ve got the freezer space to spare, it might be worth keeping the peas or sweetcorn as an emergency cold-pack for injuries – they could then be given to birds/added to a wormery afterwards. Any other ideas?
