Refinery29 Readers Confess Their Amazon Hidden Gems

Amazon is essentially an IRL version of Ariel's treasure trove, famously detailed in her The Little Mermaid number, "Part Of Your World." Only instead of a cavernous hole 1000 leagues under the sea, all that "neat" stuff is housed on digital shelves across the web. And, instead of useless, "whozits," "whatzits," and, "thingamabobs," Amazon's best booty is a collection of secret weapon stuff that we never knew we needed and now we that we have it, simply can't live without — a collection we've c...

EU deal allowing Argentine biodiesel imports may risk GMO-free glycerin supplies

In the UK, ICIS reports that the European glycerin market is unsure what impacts on the supply of non-GMO glycerin may result from the European Union’s agreement with Argentine to allow price and volume-capped biodiesel imports. With imports returning to the market, European production of biodiesel could drop and impact the availability of glycerin produced from European feedstocks, which are non-GMO. Some experts believe the price and volume caps will keep European producers operating in the co...

Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More!

This post Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More! appeared first on The Professional Hobo. When a sailor friend ( on whose boat I lived for a while in the Caribbean) sent me a message asking where my traveling hat was currently parked, I wrote back “Guatemala! I’m currently in Antigua. It’s gorgeous.” “I don’t get it,” he replied. “Where are you – Antigua, or Guatemala? You just said you were in both.” Written like a true sailor, his version of Antigua is a Caribbean island. But if you go...

A new rash of highly covert card-skimming malware infects ecommerce sites (ars technica)

Enlarge (credit: Daniel Foster / Flickr) The rash of e-commerce sites infected with card-skimming malware is showing no signs of abating. Researchers on Thursday revealed that seven sites—each with more than 50,000 collective visitors per month—have been compromised with a previously unseen strain of sniffing malware designed to surreptitiously swoop in and steal payment card data as soon as visitors make a purchase. One of those sites, UK sporting goods outlet Fila.co.uk, had been infected si...

Genetically Engineered Seafood Coming To a Restaurant Near You

Silicon Valley startups are using blockbuster gene-editing tool Crispr to make meat without farms — and to disrupt a $200 billion industry

Silicon Valley startups are experimenting with the gene-editing technology Crispr to make lab-grown chicken, pork, and beef.

The idea is to move away from environmentally-damaging meat production methods in favor of a method that could be more sustainable and less ethically fraught. Venture capitalists see huge promise in the industry's to disrupt the $200 billion glo...

The Refill Shoppe enforces zero-waste packaging, provides bulk refill solutions for myriad household and beauty products

With the nearly constant conversation about zero waste and minimization in general, single use packaging is a hot topic.

California is the nation’s biggest GMO and organic food battleground

California was the first state to have genetically modified crops sold commercially, but it is also the state with the most organic farms. Do you remember the Flavr Savr tomato?

High Tide for Brontide – Genomatica’s Butylene Glycol and its markets

If forced to guess in a game of Balderdash, the average citizen might well describe Brontide as a detergent used by the Flintstones back in Bedrock City, right up there name-wise with the BrontoBurger — a memorable chemical indeed it is, but not that one. It’s the marketing name for Genomatica’s butylene glycol, and 21 trucks rolled out from a (Novamont) contracted manufacturing site with 600 tons of the stuff the other day. And therein lies another striking chapter, and a victory, in the story...
