The Baton Blue Butterfly, with wingspan no longer than a thumbnail and range of only 100m, is the world's smallest butterfly and is found only on and around Mt Sinai and depends on a single species of plant, the Sinai Thyme, for its life cycle. In turn, the Sinai Thyme can only survive under certain conditions of temperature and humidity and is now restricted to a few isolated patches above 1500 m and is also threatened by grazing goat herds. by wilderness-ventures-egypt #Baton_Blue_Butterfly

The acantharians are one of the four types of large amoebae that occur in marine open waters. "Large" in this case is relative, as this microscopic creature have skeletons made of a single crystal of strontium sulfate that quickly dissolves in the ocean water after the cell dies. Together with other microscopic organisms, though, amoebas like this account for most of the biomass on Earth.

The Black Swan Theory was developed by Nassim Taleb to explain 1) the disproportionate role of high-impact, hard-to-predict, & rare events that are beyond the realm of normal expectations in history, science, finance & technology 2)The non-computability of the probability of the consequential rare events using scientific methods 3)The psychological biases that make people individually & collectively blind to uncertainty and unaware of the massive role of the rare event in historical affairs

Triggerfish by Sensimed is a smart contact lens embedded with a strain gauge and a wireless MEMS sensor for monitoring intraocular pressure in patients being monitored for glaucoma. (Currently a pressure check entails an office visit and is but a single point in time. In the old days, patients were admitted to the hospital for hourly pressure readings by the hapless resident on call.) It is under clinical trial. #Triggerfish #Sensimed #Glaucoma #Medical_Technology #Contact_Lens
