Electric Faucets More Germy than Manual Ones

Hands-free electric faucets meant to reduce users' contact with germs have replaced manual ones in many public restrooms and hospitals, but researchers at Johns Hopkins Hospital have found that the hands-free faucets actually contain higher levels of disease-carrying bacteria than conventional, manually operated faucets. About half of the water samples taken from hospital electronic faucets tested positive for legionella and other bacteria, while only 15 percent of the samples from the manual faucets did. The electronic faucets' complicated system of valves is thought to provide a breeding ground for bacteria. More on the subject...

The Beach Pneumatic Transit

The first to attempt to build an underground public transit system in New York City was undertaken by inventor Alfred Ely Beach in 1869. Though it was operational within a year, the Beach Pneumatic Transit Company's 312-ft- (95-m-) long pneumatic subway line beneath Broadway remained little more than a curiosity and soon closed. Now a popular element of urban legend and subway lore, the line has been referenced in several literary works. What 1989 movie incorporates Beach's subway into its plot? More...

Synonyms:egocentric, egoistic

Quotation of the Day
It is a delicious thing to write, to be no longer yourself but to move in an entire universe of your own creating. Today, for instance, as man and woman, both lover and mistress, I rode in a forest on an autumn afternoon under the yellow leaves, and I was also the horses, the leaves, the wind, the words my people uttered, even the red sun that made them almost close their love-drowned eyes.

Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)
