The Robot VS The Drunk Fish

With some help from a robotic fish, scientists have discovered that zebrafish are much like humans in at least one way – they get reckless when they get drunk. OK, "drunk" might not be technically accurate, but when exposed to alcohol, the fish show no fear of a robotic version of one of their natural predators, the Indian leaf fish. When they're "sober," they avoid the thing like crazy.

"Muscle fibers do not dictate coordination," Rose says, "and coordination and timing are essential factors behind movements like this one-inch punch."

Because the punch happens over such a short amount of time, Lee has to synchronize each segment of the jab—his twisting hip, extending knees, and thrusting shoulder, elbow, and wrist—with incredible accuracy. Furthermore, each joint in Lee's body has a single moment of peak acceleration, and to get maximum juice out of the move, Lee must layer his movements so that each period of peak acceleration follows the last one instantly.

While California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA isn't the first university to hold a class on beer, it is the first to sell the beer made by the brewing class on campus. The increased interest in craft beer may be the reason behind growing popularity in college brewing courses. Cal Poly is only the beginning, Colorado State University also plans to start selling its microbrews made by students. 

Since the craft beer industry is growing, David Ryder, chief brewmaster for MillerCoors told CBS Los Angeles, “This could be a natural progression for college programs."

For easier reading:
"Today at school I read Vacation Under the Volcano, Magic Tree House #13. I also read You Will Be My Friend Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. The last story I read was Amazing Animals. Those books are the most funniest books of my life. I like them a lot!"
We have really enjoyed the Magic Tree House books in my family. Nice job!
Nice job for what. I said I was reading books not writing them"
