AS we earnestly search for and validate indigenous products with potential to help speed up our economic recovery, there is the versatile pili nut waiting to be cracked for domestic and global markets. I am tempted to believe that had there been a pili tree in the Garden of Eden, the wondrous pili nut, not the apple, could have made Adam and Eve man and woman. Perhaps, the nutritious and delicious pili nut and the prolific pili tree could have sustained paradise with abundance and productivity. The pili tree is indigenous to the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and Australia’s Northern Territories. But it is in the Philippines, more particularly in the fertile volcanic soils of Bicolandia, where it is grown commercially. The Department of Trade and Industry reports that “the Philippines is the only country capable of the commercial production and processing of pili-based food and byproducts, with Bicol supplying 80 percent of the total output volume.” The pili … [Read more...] about Pili: The ‘King of Nuts’ reigns in Bicol

A famous Dead Sea Scroll manuscript was written by not just one but two scribes, according to a new study that used artificial intelligence (AI) and statistics to detect subtle differences in handwriting on the ancient document. The two scribes wrote in such a similar manner that the differences between the two aren't visible to the naked eye, the analysis revealed — a detail that suggests the scribes might have received similar training, perhaps at a school or in a close social setting, the researchers wrote in the study. "This is just the first step," study principal investigator Mladen Popović, a professor of the Hebrew Bible and ancient Judaism at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, told Live Science in an email.

Source: Vitalii Vodolazskyi/Shutterstock Bipolar I Disorder People with Bipolar I disorder have full-blown manic attacks and deep, paralyzing depressions. A World Health Organization survey found the prevalence rate of bipolar I disorder to be 0.6 percent. Bipolar I disorder usually starts in late adolescence or early adulthood, with the peak onset during the third decade of life (ages 20 through 29.)
