Freestyle Friday: you never know what’ll show up!

Today, November 10, is World Science Day for Peace and Development to highlight the significant role of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues. It also underlines the importance and relevance of science in our daily lives.

There’s more about this interesting initiative on the UN’s website.

And here’s a TED talk by Janine Benyus, on biomimicry and how scientists (and all of us) can learn from Mother Nature. As Ms. Benyus puts it, we live on a competent planet that does a zillion things extremely well; we can learn from that.

Wishing you a fascinating Friday,
