Seeing Stars 

Bausch & Lomb has recalled its ReNu MoistureLoc contact lens solution after reports of Fusarium infections in customers. I actually was using the stuff, and have been having redness in my eyes. I stopped using it last week. Just thought ya'll should know.

Seeing stars in a good way, new research is revealing how much more astrocytes do in our brains than just support neurons. It's not clear what, but it is clear that these characters do something; there are 10 times as many of them as there are neurons, so they could be really important.

And, via BoingBoing, we learn of a Japanese study that suggests that kissing may alleviate hay fever. As a hay fever sufferer, I will happily test this hypothesis.
