Fungi Discovered In The Amazon Will Eat Your Plastic
On an expedition to the rainforest of Ecuador, students from Yale’s Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry discovered a previously unknown fungus that has a healthy appetite for polyurethane. According to Fast Company, the fungus is the first one that is known to survive on polyurethane alone, and it can do so in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment, which suggests that it could be used at the bottom of landfills.

CD Palestino, a football club in Chile founded by Palestinian immigrants, recently changed their jersey to have the number one shaped as the map of historic Palestine.
Zionist groups complained to the Chilean Football Federation and the club was subsequently fined $1,300 and told to design a new shirt. The numbers were not to be replaced with any symbols or maps.
Their response? Move the map to the front of the shirt. Even better.
They said: ”For us, free Palestine will always be historical Palestine, nothing less.”
