The rice of the sea

quote [ In southern Spain, however, the team?s first marine garden suggests potential average harvests could be about 3.5 tonnes a hectare. While the yield is about a third of what one could achieve with rice, León points to the potential for low-cost and environmentally friendly cultivation. ?If nature gifts you with 3,500kg without doing anything ? no antibiotics, no fertiliser, just seawater and movement ? then we have a project that suggests one can cultivate marine grain.? ]

? octopus's garden ? humm-humm.

Why The Soviet Union Exchanged Warships For Pepsi

quote [ The American soft drink giant Pepsi has a long presence in Russia dating back to the early 1970s when Russia was still a part of the Soviet Union. It was the first capitalistic product to gain entry into the communist market. At that time rivalry between the two countries was high, so how did an American soft drink company get its foot in the door to build a major market in Russia? ]
