    Debt Crisis: Republicans Scent Victory With 'Sugar-Coated Satan Sandwich' Both sides express unease at the deal,but it is Democrats who have given most ground to raise debt ceiling Ewen MacAskill 1 August 2011. It was easy wandering round the corridors of Congress yesterday to spot who had won the debt standoff. In huddles with party colleagues or heading off to caucus meetings to discuss the details of the deal or standing in front of TV cameras, it was the Republicans who had all the smiles. Democratic members of Congress looked uneasy, at times shifty; and some downright were angry. "If...

    Primate's scent speaks volumes about who he is Perhaps judging a man by his cologne isn't as superficial as it seems.Duke University researchers, using sophisticated machinery to analyze hundreds of chemical components in a ringtailed lemur's distinctive scent, have found that individual males are not only advertising their fitness for fatherhood, but also a bit about their family tree as well. "We now know that there's information about genetic quality and relatedness in scent," said Christine Drea, a Duke associate professor of biological anthropology and biology. The male's scent can reflect his mixture of genes, and to which animals he's...

    Liz Gabor calls the odor “man sweat.” Though she’s loath to admit it, the aromatic scent makes her feel, as she calls it, a little frisky. “My friends think I’m crazy, but I think male sweat is kind of pleasant and, well, kind of hot,” says Gabor, 28, a customer service rep and happily married mother of two young girls. Gabor doesn’t have a honker that’s on the fritz. Rather, her penchant for “man sweat” is all in her genes, according to new research from Rockefeller and Duke Universities published this week in the journal Nature. Scientists have previously found...

    Woman's scent can lure or repel Men said the women's odour was most intense during menstruation A woman's body odour can help her attract men when she is at her most fertile and repel them when she is not, scientists have said. According to a report in the journal Ethology, when a woman is at the most fertile part of the menstrual cycle her armpit odour is at its mildest. But when she is having a period, and not ready for pregnancy, the smell changes to an acute, repellent odour. The researchers studied 12 women who wore armpit pads for...

    WASHINGTON - Scientists have identified the "come hither" scent that female German cockroaches use to lure males, a discovery that may help control one of the world's most troublesome and resistant household pests. Female cockroaches emit a pheromone, or chemical attractant, to let males know they are ready to mate. Researchers earlier identified the courtship chemicals used by other cockroach species, but the romance scent of the German cockroach remained elusive. "The German cockroach is the one we wanted because it is a worldwide pest that gives all the other cockroaches a bad name," said Wendell L. Roelofs, a Cornell...

    Shutesbury, Massachusetts town hall will be segregated by scent to avoid disturbing those hypersensitive to chemicals and odors. This will involve splitting the meeting hall into three sections as of May third. One section of the room will be reserved for people who never use perfumes or scented deodorants, detergents or other products. The second will be for those who sometimes wear fragrance but not on the day of the meeting, and the third will be labeled, "Seating for those who forgot and used cologne and perfume." Using fragrances in public is similar to smoking, said Town Administrator David Ames....
