Helping Hands – Monkey Helpers for the Disabled
I used to think this was a spoof site, but its a real charity. The total cost of breeding, training, and placing a monkey helper, with a life span of 30-40 years, is $25,000. In comparison, the cost of preparing a Seeing Eye dog with a 10-year life span is $21,000.

Oil and water do mix!
Australian National University chemistry professor Richard Pashley has discovered a way to mix oil and water, which contradicts the age-old proverb. The secret? – you have to take the gases out of the water first, mainly oxygen and nitrogen. Then oil and water mix spontaneously and stay that way for a long time.
Until the discovery, oil and water could only be mixed with the addition of detergents. Removing the gases was not difficult, and industry had been taking oxygen out of water for many years to make it less corrosive. There are many potential commercial applications, especially for injectable drugs that are now dissolved in water with detergents added that sometimes caused side effects. A US perfume manufacturer which found some customers were allergic to the detergents it used to dissolve its fragrance agents in water is also interested.
A reptile enthusiast investigating a call from a man he thought “had been drinking”, found a metre-long Nile crocodile lazing in the pool of a Pretoria suburb. How the reptile, with razor-sharp teeth, made its way into a residential swimming pool still remains a mystery as they are not indigenous to the Pretoria area.

Gong Xi Fa Cai! According to the Chinese Zodiac, it’s the year of the monkey.
“Astrologers predict it will be an extremely progressive, upbeat time, full of exhilirating successes. What’s even better is that it should be a relative breeze. Apparently good old monkey will carry us along with his natural exuberant energy. Be warned though, you may feel the urge to speculate, gamble and explore risky but inventive alternative. Stay on your toes as there could be trickery from the influence of the monkey.” ~ This is Brighton Magazine

The inner thoughts of Britain’s wartime leader Winston Churchill live on, thanks to the foul mouth of his 104-year-old parrot.
“Fuck Hitler! Fuck the Nazis!” says Charlie with a Churchillian inflection.
