Me llamo Kaleigh Marie, and I like to pretend I know how to speak Spanish.
I am a Christian.
I'm the Drum Major for the Oregon Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps, and I'm going to be a music educator.
My favorite hobbies include: laying in the sun in my bathing suit, listening to the Bee Gees, baking scones, trolling elephants, and singing atrociously loud in my car on road trips.
I have a wonderful family, which comes fully equipped with a set of sisters that looks exactly like me (with a few minor adjustments here and there). My friends are also the best. Probably ever.
All in all, I've been very blessed, and I'd consider myself a pretty happy human being.
Especially when ice cream's involved.
Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
