Grass seed planted in contaminated soils and watered with solutions containing the PD1 endophyte germinated five days quicker, grew taller and had 100 more tillers, or new offshoots, after 13 days. Here's UW's full news release: Scientists using a microbe that occurs naturally in eastern cottonwood trees have boosted the ability of two other plants – willow and lawn grass – to withstand the withering effects of the nasty industrial pollutant phenanthrene and take
But a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Early Edition by a group from the University of Leeds and University of York unlocks its meaning and demonstrates that jamming the code can disrupt virus assembly. It is like finding a secret message within an ordinary news report and then being able to crack the whole coding system behind it. We have now proved that those computer models work in real viral messages.".

It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned -- and all through this long century of waging war on drugs, we have been told a story about addiction by our teachers and by our governments. .
