Pigs Make the World Go Round

Christien Meindertsma, author of "Pig 05049" shares with us the astonishing afterlife of the ordinary pig, parts of which make their way into at least 187 non-pork products, from bullets to artificial hearts.

Thanks to Kevin Wu for sharing this TEDTalk video:
 
 
World No. 1 Nicol David saw off national No. 2 Low Wee Wern 11-6, 11-4, 11-9 in the quarter-finals of the US Open on Tuesday. The former’s semi-final opponent is Egyptian world No. 3 Raneem El Welily.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BTW, in the latest rankings released on October 01, 2014, Low jumped up two spots from No. 7 in the world following her excellent effort in winning the China Open last month, beating France’s world No. 6 Camille Serme in the final. She is only the second Malaysian woman to be in the world’s top five.
