Mexico City's Aztec Surprises.
Mexico City might be one of the world’s classic megacities, an ever-expanding jumble of traffic, commerce, grand public spaces and leafy suburbs. But it is also an archaeological wonder, and more than three decades after a chance discovery set off a systematic exploration of the Aztecs’ ceremonial spaces, surprises are still being uncovered in the city’s superimposed layers.
Eating Yogurt Gives Mice Big Balls (You Should Try It!).
Here's a way to get young males to eat healthy: a new study found that eating yogurt has some surprising benefits (at least in mice) including making their testicles, er, quite impressive. First, the scientists noticed that the yogurt-eating mice were incredibly shiny. Using both traditional histology techniques and cosmetic rating scales, the researchers showed that these animals had 10 times the active follicle density of other mice, resulting in luxuriantly silky fur. Then the researchers spotted something particular about the males: they projected their testes outward, which endowed them with a certain "mouse swagger." We kid you not.
