From the Cover: Major evolutionary transitions in ant agriculture
All attine ants obligately depend on the cultivation of fungus gardens for food. So complete is this dependence that, upon leaving the maternal nest, a daughter queen must carry within her mouth a nucleus of fungus that serves as the starting culture for her new garden

Many pet rabbits will die in Second Life on Saturday | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Virtual rabbits across Second Life [official site] will fall asleep on Saturday then never wake up, now that the their digital food supply has been shut down by a legal battle. The player-made and player-sold Ozimals brand of digirabbits are virtual pets that players breed and care for in the sandbox MMO, and even need to feed by buying DRM-protected virtual food. But they rely on servers. Waypoint reported earlier today that the seller of Ozimals and the Pufflings virtuabirds has received a legal threat he says he cannot afford to fight, so they’ve shut down. By Saturday, rabbits will run out of food and enter hibernation.

Dave Brat's Horrible, Terrible, No Good Problem with the First Amendment
When a questioner said that health care is a human right, Brat countered the question with, “."I don't think y'all want the separation of church and state (...) In the west rights come from God". In a press interview immediately following the event, Brat was asked how excited he was about the bill, he replied, “I’m a Calvinist,” he said. “I’m the frozen chosen. I’m an economist. So, it’s like—excitement? Whatever.” He also added, “I don’t think people get that excited on policy in general,”

Chase added that it is the responsibility of the church, not the government to protect the poor, needy and vulnerable. “If a person needs help they should join a church.”
