THINGS WE LEARNT THIS MONTH
CHIMPANZEES’ BEDS ARE CLEANER THAN OURS
This may not come as a surprise to parents of teenagers, but a study by North Carolina State University has found that the treetop beds that chimpanzees make each evening have far fewer bacteria, parasites and faecal particles than human beds.
WEEKEND LIE-INS CAN HELP YOU LIVE LONGER
Sleepy heads rejoice! Having a weekend lie-in to catch up on sleep could extend our lifetimes, researchers at the University of Oxford have found. Zzz.
SHARKS LIKE JAZZ
Researchers in Sydney who trained baby Port Jackson sharks to go to a feeding station each time they heard music have found they respond more positively to jazz than classical. Nice.
