How a 6,000-Year-Old Dog Cancer Spread Around the World

High in the Himalayas, a heavy-coated dog trots behind the hem of a Buddhist monk’s robes. On the streets of Panama City, another dog collapses into a sliver of shade, escaping the heat of the midday sun. On their bodies a cancer grows. Their tumors each appear unique—their swollen, crumbling contours flush with fresh blood vessels emerging from beneath a tail here or between the legs there. But the cells dividing inside each one, continents apart, are actually the same…

Plymouth Gin master distiller: ‘There’s no such thing as a vodka martini’

Back in the 1700s, gin enjoyed wild popularity thanks to its affordability, earning it the nickname “mother’s ruin” because of the families it destroyed. In London alone there were around 7,000 gin shops at the time. However, The Gin Act of 1751 put a healthy dampener on the gin craze. Almost 300 years later, gin is enjoying a renaissance, though, arguably with fewer social problems than the 1700s. Read more: ‘Game of Thrones’ brought an ancient drink back from the…

Creative Limitation And The Super Nintendo Sound Chips

The Super Nintendo recently experienced a surge in popularity, either from a combination of nostalgic 30-somethings recreating their childhoods, or because Nintendo released a “classic” version of this nearly-perfect video game system. Or a combination of both. But what made the system worthy of being remembered at all? With only 16 bits and graphics that look ancient by modern standards, gameplay is similarly limited.
