    The mystery of why supermarket tomatoes smell delicious but taste watery and bland has been explained by scientists. Tomatoes gain their flavour from a combination of sugars, acids and aromas, but a new study has examined exactly how different elements influence their taste.

    Thereís a revolution coming to your supermarket, and itís going to start in the tomato aisle. After more than a decade of study, researchers at the University of Florida have identified the chemical compounds responsible for giving a great tomato its distinctive sweet, earthy, slightly grassy taste. They have also determined the genes that code for these chemicals and where they can be found in the tomato genome. Their results, published Thursday in Science, could help breeders create tomatoes that are hardy enough to survive the often long and arduous journey from field to store without sacrificing flavor. Experts say...

    Ever wonder why most store-bought tomatoes are so tasteless? The answer (surprise, surprise) has to do with revenue: Tomato farmers care about yield, and the genetic variants associated with yield are not associated with tasty tomato flavors, a new study finds. "Consumers complain that the modern tomato has little flavor. [It's] like a 'water bomb,'" said the study's co-principal investigator Sanwen Huang, the deputy director general at the Agricultural Genome Institute at Shenzhen at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. How can farmers ditch this "water bomb" and reinstate the rich, sweet flavor of the tomato? To find out, Huang...

    LARGO, FL, March 5, 2012 ( - The Pepsi Company, which is set to release the new product Pepsi Next in the coming weeks, is facing a more robust boycott as pro-life activists protest the company use of cells derived from an aborted fetus in flavor-enhancing research. But Pepsi has succeeded, with help from the Obama Administration, in keeping its controversial operations from consideration by its shareholders. In a decision delivered Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to...

  • What Has Thompson Done?

    I listed my qualms about him a few days ago. Right now I would consider McCain and Rudy above Fred, but not Brownback. This solely rests upon the fact that other than voting correctly and saying good things on Paul Harvey, I am very skeptical of Thompsonís ability to, 1. Formulate good policy (detail work) 2. Negotiate with the other side and foreign governments 3. Run a organization (whether a campaign or an administration) 4. Something that shows those lazy accusations are not true (i.e. some where he has put forth good effort.) I know that a lot of people...
