Even when stored as directed — in cool, dry places — your canister of macadamia nuts or container of rice can go bad. While not as obvious or off-putting as a moldy tomato or a blueish cut of meat left too long in a refrigerator, grains and nuts do expire. But why does this happen? Just like other foods, these groups are made of fat , carbohydrate and protein molecules. Over time, these macronutrients mix with each other and their surroundings, changing their taste, texture and your appetite for them. It's important to note that "going bad" can mean a lot of things. Obviously, nuts and grains can spoil. If not properly stored, these foods can be contaminated by mold or yeast, according to Julien Delarue, a sensory and consumer scientist at the University of California, Davis. But grains and nuts can also expire — meaning they lose their desirable sensory properties over time, Delarue said.

Fitbit has unveiled a new slimline fitness tracker, the Fitbit Luxe, with a slim stainless steel case, AMOLED display and SpO2 sensor. We got our first glimpse of the new fitness tracker a few days ago, when images of the Luxe leaked online. In terms of design, it's not dissimilar to the Fitbit Inspire 2 released last year, with a similar narrow display and smooth lines. Unlike the Inspire 2, however, the case of the Luxe is made from smart stainless steel rather than polymer, giving it a more premium look, and the tracker's body is thinner for a more comfortable fit.

Mantis shrimp wield a spring-loaded appendage that punches through water with explosive force — and their babies can start swinging just nine days after they hatch. In a new study, published Thursday (April 29) in the Journal of Experimental Biology , scientists studied larval Philippine mantis shrimp ( Gonodactylaceus falcatus ) originally collected from Oahu, Hawaii. The team also reared some of the same species from eggs, carefully monitoring their development through time and then zooming in on their punching appendage under the microscope. The appendage, called the raptorial appendage, works similar to a bow and arrow, in that the tip of the appendage gets pulled back, "nocked" against a spring-like mechanism and then let loose in a sudden release of elastic energy, said first author Jacob Harrison, a graduate student in the biology program at Duke University. "While we have a pretty great understanding of how it functions in the adults … we didn't really have a … [Read more...] about Baby mantis shrimp throw knockout punches at 9 days old

When Apple announced the new iPad Pro, 24-inch iMac, and Apple TV 4K models during its April 20 livestreamed event, the company said those products would launch "in the second half of May" but didn't get more specific beyond that. Now, multiple apparent leaks—including one on Apple's website—have pointed to a more specific date: May 21. Further Reading Apple announces new M1-based iMac in 7 fancy colors Prolific Apple news leaker Jon Prosser named May 21 as the launch date for some of the products, and UK retailer John Lewis' product page for the new iPad Pro carried copy saying, "Available 21 May 2021," as discovered by MacRumors and other Apple rumor sites.
