Weekly News

Wednesday is back! Fast, right? I survived last week’s craziness. In fact, it was successful craziness. I took my engineering team to State for 2 1/2 days, and we scored six wins (a mix of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes). Then, I surfed my couch for two days of mindlessness. After all of that do you know what I need? News.

This first story is sweet, but I very much disagree with referring to street rats as cute. Yuck!

This next story is extra interesting for me because of my current book. Carving supposed witch traps into cave walls shows just how fearful people were during the early Middle Ages.

Last up tonight, a genetic breakthrough thanks to sharks. Understanding the potential of stability genes could end up as part of cancer prevention someday. Also, super-fast healing understanding. Great Whites really do have superpowers.

That’s all for me tonight. See you back here in seven.

  1. That was sweet they rescued the rat. I think they’re cute – I used to own a couple pet rats, Ben and Socrates, and they rode around on my shoulders.

  2. Six wins is great!
    Maybe there were orcs or trolls in those caves?
