How do these trees benefit from this different approach to deciduousness?
In August in England, eight weeks after the summer solstice, the direct heat from the sun on a fine day feels much hotter than it does in April, eight weeks before the solstice, although its elevation is the same.
Yet supermarkets sell a lot of chilled meals that include rice and these can have "use by" dates up to a week away.
What is different about the cooked rice in these meals?
What about a really amazing sale on a packaged food?
Sometimes that good sale is a last-ditch effort to clear out the product before the date. When sorting supplies for my recent relocation, I discovered to my dismay that a couple of items had passed their expiration dates.
My 8-year-old son is very worried about Earth being destroyed by the sun when it becomes a red giant billions of years from now. They are deciduous and their leaves turn bronze in the autumn, but they don't fall off the tree.
I have tried to comfort him by suggesting we could shift Earth's orbit by hurling asteroids towards the planet on trajectories that will gradually move it away from the sun. Instead, they hang on until spring when other plants are putting out their new leaves.
I have seen this advice before, saying it is not safe to keep cooked rice for more than a short time, even in the fridge. I especially want to hear your stories if that intern was you. As we near the end of summer internship season, I want to know about your worst intern stories: the interns who behaved badly, disruptively, unprofessionally. With a large and expensive stockpile of drugs, the military faced tossing out and replacing its drugs every few years.What they found from the study is 90% of more than 100 drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, were perfectly good to use even 15 years after the expiration date.The website defines the terms in an article called The Big Myth.
