    The saddest word
    in the whole wide world
    is the word almost.


    He was almost in love.
    She was almost good for him.
    He almost stopped her.
    She almost waited.
    He almost lived.
    They almost made it.

    Everything you love is here

  • I remember the day you told me you were leaving
    I remember the make-up running down your face
    And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
    Like every single wish we ever made
    I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
    And forget about the stupid little things
    Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
    And the memories I never can escape

    'Cause I'm not fine at all

    The pictures that you sent me they’re still living in my phone
    I’ll admit I like to see them, I’ll admit I feel alone
    And all my friends keep asking why I’m not around

    It hurts to know you’re happy, yeah, it hurts that you’ve moved on
    It’s hard to hear your name when I haven’t seen you in so long

    It’s like we never happened, was it just a lie?
    If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

    'Cause I'm not fine at all

    I remember the day you told me you were leaving
    I remember the make-up running down your face
    And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
    Like every single wish we ever made
    I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
    And forget about the stupid little things
    Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
    And the memories I never can escape

    in an effort to relocate critically endangered black rhinos to areas better able to protect and grow the population, the black rhino range expansion project briefly flies the animals, blindfolded and tranquilized, from otherwise inaccessible south african terrain to a waiting truck that will drive them to their new home.

    from a population that used to number in the hundreds of thousands only a century ago, less than 5,000 black rhinos now remain. there are three recognized subspecies of the black rhino. there were four, but the west african black rhino became officially extinct last year. photos by green renaissance, btv and the wwf

    Plants that fight cancer

    This picture shows Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar periwinkle) alongside the structure of vinblastine, an alkaloid natural product.

    This pretty plant makes hundreds of alkaloid natural products which are a rich resource for a wide range of applications, including the development of pharmaceuticals, insecticides and biomaterials.

    Natural products from this plant have already given us some very important cancer-fighting medicines, for instance vinblastine is one of the compounds used in chemo-therapy.

    Read more about BBSRC-funded scientists who are studying this plant and developing new industrial applications for the natural products.
