New research suggests that winemaking may have gotten its start at least eight thousand years ago. http://n.pr/2jqIyba

    Georgian Jars Hold 8,000-Year-Old Winemaking Clues
    Anthropologist Patrick McGovern, at the University of Pennsylvania, has been pursuing the origins of wine for many years, and that search took him to the mountainous areas east of the Black Sea, in what is today Georgia, Armenia, and Iran. "Everything pointed to that region as the area to investigate," he says.

    Museum Tells Stories Of Philadelphia's Stoops
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A Philadelphia museum that tells the stories of the city's neighborhoods is taking steps, literally, to create a new exhibit. Some call them steps, others, a stoop, and for generations, many Philadelphians used the architectural element to gather and tell stories. But what about the stories of the stoop?

Recently coined by scientists from the University of Portsmouth in England, the term 'kleptopredation' is defined as the act of hunting an animal with a full stomach and was first observed being employed by a particular kind of sea slug. http://bit.ly/2iX1DSl

    Kleptopredation is a new scientific term for super-sizing a meal at sea
    Kleptropredation isn't a crime, though the newly-coined term has a criminal ring, and the act is kind of like theft-meets-murder-in-a-meal. Technically, it's when a predator eats prey that has just hunted and has a full belly-such that the predator ends up eating its prey's prey as well.
