Human taste buds drive 4,000 years of citrus evolution

North Country Public Radio - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 22:00
The modern supermarket holds a bewildering variety of oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, tangerines and more. But they are all the product of 4,000 years of selective breeding by humans to tease out tastier, larger, sweeter and juicier variations and hybrids from four ancestral Asian fruits. Dr. Curt Stager and Martha Foley climb back down the citrus family tree to look at the Mandarin orange, the pomelo, the citron and the papeda.

3 found alive inside West Virginia coal mine

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 19:24

CLEAR CREEK, W.Va. (AP) — Three people missing since last weekend were found alive Wednesday in a nonoperational coal mine in West Virginia, authorities said.

The three were located Wednesday inside Elk Run Coal's Rock House Powellton mine near Clear Creek, the state Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training said in a statement.

The statement didn't indicate their conditions. It said crews were working to bring them to the surface for transportation to a hospital.

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Office had identified them as Kayla Williams, 25, of Artie; Erica Treadway, 31, of Pax; and Cody Beverly, 21, of Dorothy. They'd been missing since Saturday. An abandoned ATV the four were believed to be riding was found near the mine entrance.

On Monday night, 43-year-old Eddie Williams of Artie walked out of the mine.

It's unknown whether Kayla and Eddie Williams are related. It's also unclear why they were at the mine or what condition they were in.

Crews had used fans to move fresh air into the mine while pumps cleared some standing water inside the mine but the water levels remained too high and hampered search efforts.

According to the mine safety office, coal has not been mined at the underground location for two years.

Local 3D printing company creating, donating toy robots to Toys for Tots

Channel 10 news - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 18:49

COLUMBUS, Ohio - IC3D is creating and donating 150 toy robots to children in need this Christmas.

Matt Organiscak is the company's COO and what they're doing, he says, is a first; 3D printing toys to be given to Toys for Tots, which will then be given to children this holiday season.

"We're going to actually get to make some 3D printed things that are going to go out in the world and do something, which I think is pretty fun," he said.

And, why not? After all, they say, "Tis the season."

"Yeah," Sean Rinna said. "That's what they say and it proves it's true."

Rinna is IC3D's online community manager. He works with builders in Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Maryland and Kentucky who have agreed to donate time and machine to help print the toy robots. IC3D sends the supplies to the builders, they print them and then ship them back.

This material, polymer, is used for 3D printing. IC3D is shipping this to builders in different states to help with printing the robots.

"It's mind-blowing, actually," Rinna said.

Mind-blowing to look at the detail and the points of articulation on each of the robots, which come in blue, green, yellow and red colors.

"They're very impressive," Organiscak said. "Even I'm pretty surprised and this is what we do all day every day."

Each robot takes three hours to print. Organiscak says each of the 150 robots are valued at $10 each, which means companies are giving up more than $1,500 in supplies.

"It's pretty cool to think this is going to hit a hundred other kids and it's going to impact a hundred other kids for potentially the rest of their lives, remembering a toy they got when they were a kid," he said.

It's all for children who aren't even expecting to get a gift.

"When somebody gives you a toy or gives you something and you weren't expecting it, it's real awesome," Rinna said. "It's a good feeling."

Organiscak says the toys will be donated at Rickenbacker Airport, Friday, for Toys for Tots.
