The Wizard of Oz on Facebook?
Warner Bros. has licensed Turner Entertainment’s The Wizard of Oz as the first branded online, interactive, multi-platform social game based on the 1939 original movie.
The game is developed by Spooky Cool Lab and is currently in Beta testing on the social networking site. This 3D experience will remind you of your all-time favourite classic movie. It is said that the game is really engaging and time-consuming and may take players for about 11 hours to reach the end which is to reach the Oz with plenty of side quests!
Well, no big deal for the game geeks! The new players can go through a 45minutes of tutorial.
Bees love M&M too!
In the North-eastern France, the beekeepers found something really unusual. The bees in their hives started producing honey in blue and green shades. It was a bad news for all the beekeepers as this new colour honey could not be sold. Therefore, they investigated the cause behind the colourful honey.
It was found that the bees, instead of taking nectar from flowers, started feeding on the remnants of the coloured candy shells of M&M which were processed at the plant some four kilometres away from the bees’ abode. Soon after the problem was uncovered, the management at the M&M plant and the beekeepers quickly cleaned any remains left outside uncovered. And then it was decided to cover any remains of the candy so that bees don’t get attracted to the candy again!
Bacteria that turns toxic liquid into pure gold!
Researchers from University of Michigan have discovered bacteria that can turn toxic into tiny nuggets of the purest form of the precious metal — gold!
This magical experiment has been done by microbiologist Kazem Kashefi and electronic artist Adam Brown, who discovered the bacteria, Cupriavidus Metallidurans, which can feed on gold and III chloride, a toxic liquid which can excrete pure 24 carat of gold into tiny nuggets. The Michigan University has pointed out that the procedure is too expensive to be carried out on manufacturing gold on a large scale as it also needs a portable laboratory and equipment to be too expensive. The piece is currently displayed at the Prix Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria.
