New Spanish Law Would Make Children Obligated To Do Chores

Could Spain be on to something?  Last Friday (4/25), the Spanish parliament approved a bill that would make children legally obliged to do housework! Not just chores mind you, if passed into law, the requirements for those under the age of 18, means they will be expected to participate in family life, respect their parents and siblings, and perform household duties "in accordance with their age and regardless of their gender."

Smartphone App Tells You Where The Sick People Are

If you're trying to avoid sick people there's now an app for that. It's called "Sickweather" and uses information from Facebook statuses and tweets to show the users where the sick people are geographically. The map the app provides allows a user to see where different types of illnesses are cropping up, and how many cases are in each area. The app also encourages the user to self-report specific illnesses through its interface.

And The Fastest Land Animal In The World Is...

If you though the fastest land animal in the world is a Cheetah, you're wrong!   A new study reveals that the world's fastest animal relative to its body size is a small Southern California mite. The little creature can travel 322 body lengths in a second, which researchers say would equate to 1,300 miles per hour for a human. They say by comparison, a cheetah tops out at about 16 body lengths per second, or roughly 70 miles per hour. To find this, researchers used a high-speed camera to study how quickly different animals moved. The mite beat out the Australian tiger beetle, which previously held the record for the fastest relative speed.

Cardboard Wine Bottles Reduce Carbon Footprint

A new brand of cardboard wine bottle is being used by a wine manufacturer to help lower transportation costs and their carbon-foot print. The packaging, which is made by GreenBottle, is 80-percent lighter than its glass contemporary and saves approximately 61 gallons of diesel fuel. Currently, only Paperboy is using the new container despite the added benefits of cheaper shipping costs and a 67-percent smaller carbon foot-print than glass bottles.
