Car tyres are major source of ocean microplastics – study

More than 200,000 tonnes of tiny plastic particles are blown from roads into the oceans every year, according to research.The study suggests wind-borne microplastics are a bigger source of ocean pollution than rivers, the route that has attracted most attention to date. The analysis focused on the tiny particles produced by tyres and brake pads as they wear down.It estimated that 550,000 tonnes of particles smaller than 0.01mm are deposited each year, with almost half ending up in the ocean. More than 80,000 tonnes fall on remote ice- and snow-covered areas and may increase melting as the...

The power of touch: having sex with another woman shook my brain and restarted my heart

The power of touch: having sex with another woman shook my brain and restarted my heart

Though, doubtless, that will have been the case for someone out there.)My first time having sex? An upstairs bedroom during a teen house party, I’m afraid. We’ll breeze past the mortifying moment my friends opened the door and stuck...
