  • Scientists Discover The Biggest Animal Species That Can Regrow Its Own Limbs

    Scientists have discovered the largest species that has the ability to regrow limbs. According to Business Insider, it's the alligator. Like lizards, young American gators can regrow their tails up to 9 inches. Prof. Kenro Kusumi is a co-senior study author and the director of Arizona State University's School of Life Sciences. Kusumi began studying gator regrowth after receiving a package in the mail that contained a deformed alligator tail in a pickle jar with ethanol. The tail was discolored, forked, and the scales were smaller than normal. Kusumi realized that the tail looked like it had been regrown.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
