    Game-Changing New Smart Sponge Soaks Up Oil Spills, Saving Water And Wildlife

    A team from Northwestern University has developed a highly porous smart sponge that can selectively soak up oil spills in water. With an ability to absorb more than 30 times its weight in oil, the sponge could be used to inexpensively and efficiently clean up spills without harming marine life. After squeezing the oil out of the sponge, it can be reused many dozens of times without losing its effectiveness.

    New study sheds light on how and why being hard-to-get can make you seem more desirable

    Reciprocation of attraction — people’s tendency to like those who like them — may encourage the initiation of relationships with targets of interest. Immediately reciprocating another person’s expression of liking, however, may not be the most effective strategy for attracting mates. Indeed, people who are too easy to attract may be perceived as more desperate and thus as less valuable and appealing than those who do not make their romantic interest apparent right away.

    In September 1591, Queen Elizabeth I stopped during her annual progress around her kingdom at the home of the Earl of Hertford, Elvetham Hall near Basingstoke in south-east England.

    The U.S.' coronavirus recovery is way behind Europe's

    Other countries — even some hit hard by the coronavirus — are beating back their outbreaks more successfully than the U.S. Why it matters: The number of new cases every day is holding steady in the U.S., but it's not going down — a key benchmark many other countries achieved before loosening their lockdowns and social distancing measures.
