A taste-altering berry and a fungus that can fight tumours and viruses are among the top plant and fungi species discovered in 2019. Chosen by Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, the list also includes a candy-stripe violet flower and a snowdrop plant that was spotted after a Turkish paediatrician uploaded her holiday photos to Facebook. The discoveries could hold the key to new medicines and other solutions, but many are already under threat of extinction from habitat loss and the climate crisis. Swipe to see some of the discoveries

    I swear all those Damn Republicans have ear splitting accents. It’s like Goober whines every time they’re speaking.

    Quotation for the Day:

    “You see, it’s also not a matter of process which will be discussed today, it’s a matter of actual facts. I will fight the facts all day long… You know, obstruction of Congress, as I’ve before, is like petulant children saying, ‘We didn’t get our way when we didn’t ask the right way and we didn’t try to go after and make a case.’ You know why, Madam Speaker, the clock and the calendar are terrible masters and the majority will own that problem today. Because to the clock and the calendar, facts don’t matter, the promises to the base matter.”
