The only animal that I can really tell you definitively has two (bioflourescent) colors is corals.”Fireflies have a different type of glow. Bioluminescent organisms – like fireflies – use chemical reactions in their bodies to exude light, while bioflourescent beings absorb light, and radiate it back out.7-Year-Old Discovers New Dinosaur Species, a T-Rex That Eats PlantsThe phenomenon is known to exist in corals, crabs, insects, and more than 200 kinds of fishes. Biologists are still uncertain as to why the sea turtle would need the eerie glow for it’s survival. They speculated that the reptile might light up either as a defense mechanism or to reel in prey.Scientists are only just starting to scratch the surface of bioflourescence on a cellular level, and the hawksbill sea turtle is a huge milestone on the road to illumination.(READ more at CNN)Send Your Friends a Glowing Recommendation (click below)…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore
Healthcare trends currently are a hot topic. How these trends impact the commercial real estate industry is an even hotter topic.AZCREW, the leading organization for senior-level executive women in the Metro Phoenix commercial real estate field, will examine medical real estate trends at its May luncheon. The event is May 21 at the Phoenix Country Club, 2901 N. 7th St.May’s speakers include Julie A. Johnson, Principal, Avison Young; Randy McGrane, Managing Director and CEO, Ensemble; and Sonja Nelson, Chief Strategy Officer, Abrazo West Campus.With today’s healthcare focus on patient wellness and care satisfaction – as well as providing delivery efficiencies including convenient and easily accessible locations – healthcare providers have had to take the initiative of being proactive and making it easier for the patients to get treatment. Developers of healthcare facilities have also had to adjust to this shifting real estate strategy. “That’s when the shift started towards providing healthcare that is not focused on making the hospital the center of the universe,” Johnson says. “There is a lot of real estate involved.” AZCREW’s May lunch begins with networking at 11:30 a.m. The program starts at noon. Member registration is $45; non-member pre-registration is $65. Lunch is included. Registration ends May 16. Register here.
