1.) Next time you’re playing a game on your mobile phone, your nose could be rewarded. Pop Secret has partnered with a marketing company to create a mobile phone attachment for the game Poptopia, the Pop Dongle. It looks like a cartoon popped kernel and when you swipe butter character within the game it produces a spritz of popcorn scent. The more you play the game, which requires you to pop as many popcorn kernels as you can, the more Pop Dongle emits the delicious smell of freshly popped popcorn.
2.) While we’re still not certain of the health benefits of organic food, the same cannot be said of organic milk. New research of almost 400 samples of both kinds of milk found that the organic stuff, from cows grazed in grassy pastures, was richer in heart-healthy fatty acids than milk from corn-fed cows. The lead researcher with the study says "All milk is healthy and good for people," but organic milk has a better balance of omega-3 fatty acids versus omega-6, which has been linked to heart disease when it is too high in the balance. The study was largely funded by an organic dairy cooperative but experts say the data appears credible, according to the New York Times.
3.) Only one band in history has played a concert on all seven continents. This past Sunday, Metallica played an hour long 10 song set for an audience of about 120 scientists and contest winners inside a protective dome on Antarctica. Because of the "fragile environment", the music couldn't be amplified in the traditional sense. Instead, amplifiers were enclosed in isolation cabinets, and the crowd had to listen though headphones. The group Fall Out Boy had attempted to be the first act to perform in Antarctica back in 2006, but they had to cancel it because of "uncooperative weather."
