Comments Off on Throw out your romaine lettuce, CDC declares E.coli outbreak

Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat … again. The CDC is advising people to throw out and avoid eating all romaine lettuce following an E.coli outbreak that has left 32 people sick and 13 people hospitalized across 11 states in the U.S. so far. The CDC along with public health officials across the U.S. and Canada are investigating another outbreak of E.coli connected to romaine lettuce. The center said that consumers should not eat any romaine lettuce, and restaurants and retailers should not serve this item until the outbreak has been thoroughly investigated. Related: Is your Thanksgiving turkey putting your family’s health at risk? The reported illnesses for this outbreak began on Oct.8, 2018 through Oct. 31, 2018. Thirteen people have been hospitalized, with 32 cases reported altogether at the time of writing. No deaths have been reported. The investigation is still undergoing and no additional information has been reported, but the center advises consumers to throw out all romaine lettuce , even if you have already eaten some and did not get sick. “This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix and Caesar salad,” the CDC said. “If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away. Wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where romaine was stored. Follow these five steps to clean your refrigerator.” Watch: CDC declares romaine lettuce an E. coli risk If you’re worried about the outbreak, here are some symptoms to look for: severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and a slight fever. The illness usually begins about two to eight days after swallowing the germ and lasts about a week, but E.coli can cause kidney failure or become life-threatening.

As I write this, I’m chewing on a spicy little arugula  seedling that I grew from within the last couple of weeks. Considering that it’s -15C outside right now where I am, and there’s a good 3” of snow coating everything, I hadn’t expected to be chowing down on fresh greens unless I’d bought them from the grocery store, where they’ve been marked up exponentially as out-of-season luxuries. How did I manage to coax these sweethearts into growing, then? The answer is actually quite simple, and surprised me as well: south-facing windows.

Comments Off on Mysterious Underwater “Crop Circles” Discovered Off the Coast of Japan

More than 70 percent of our planet is covered with water, yet the oceans are still the most mysterious parts of the world. Earlier this year, deep-sea photographer and diver Yoji Ookata  discovered something he had never seen in his 50 years documenting the underwater world off the coast of Japan: a beautiful circular structure on the sand, about 80 feet below sea level that was so accurately carved that it looks like a deep-sea crop circle.

Comments Off on NASA Releases Amazing New Images of Earth at Night

Scientists from NASA and NOAA  just unveiled a series of breathtaking new images of our planet glowing at night. Thanks to high-res composite data acquired by a new sensor, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the floating Suomi NPP satellite, we can get “day-night band” images sensitive enough to detect the light from a single ship in the sea. These beautiful cloud-free night images feature cities that never sleep, within a glowing planet that is nowhere as dark as we might have thought.
