Sunday, June 13, 2021 - There are roughly 7 billion humans on Earth. That’s a huge number, but it pales in comparison with the 17 quadrillion (17,000,000,000,000,000) flies. Biologist Jonathan Balcome is the author of “Super Fly: The Unexpected Lives of the World’s Most Successful Insects.”~~~ Imagine competing on a cooking show, complete with celebrity judges and timers and a film crew capturing your every move. Now imagine you’re not told what to make, but have to figure it out based on clues left in the kitchen. The detective and the baking shows are combined in Crime Scene Kitchen, which airs Wednesdays at 8 pm Central on Fox. Two contestants are from North Dakota. Thomas McCurdy, who now runs a farm in Vermont appears on the show with his mom Cathy Jacobson of Devils Lake. ~~~ Chuck Lura shares a Natural North Dakota essay about North Dakota’s most popular game fish, the walleye.
