AN ADELAIDE man has lost his
driver’s licence and had his car
impounded after turning up at a
police station over the limit.
The ABC reports that the man
went to Christies Beach police
station to make an enquiry about
a defect notice on his vehicle.
Officers say they breath-tested
the 49-year-old because he
appeared to be intoxicated, and
found that he was more than four
times the legal limit.
THIS would make a good
segment for the popular channel
7 show Border Security.
A monk has been detained at
Athens Airport after officials
discovered parts of a human
skeleton in his luggage.
The 56-year-old man from
Cyprus allegedly claimed the skull
and other bones were the remains
of a nun, telling security staff he
was “taking the relics of a saint”
back to his monastery.
INSECTS could easily solve the
world’s food problems, according
to a Dutch scientist who has
announced plans for a so-called
Professor Arnold van Huis from
Wageningen University said that
insects have more protein than
beef, cost less to raise and have a
smaller carbon footprint.
“Children don’t have a problem
with eating insects, but adults
with developed eating habits do,
and only tasting and experience
can make them change their
mind,” he said.
Recipes in his book will include
grasshopper spring rolls,.
mealworm quiche and even
chocolate pralines with worms.
“Meat consumption is expected
to double from 2000 to 2050. We
are already using 70% of our
agricultural land for livestock and
we cannot afford to spare more,”
To push home the message, van
Huis is conducting a special
tasting roadshow in conjunction
with a local cooking school, in the
hopes of attracting more insecteaters.The above article was sent to subscribers in Pharmacy Daily's issue from 19 Jan 11 To see the full newsletter, see the embedded issue below or CLICK HERE to download Pharmacy Daily from 19 Jan 11
