A 12-year-old girl is in a vegetative state and no longer reacts to stimuli from her surroundings.

A 7-year-old child had multiple cardiac arrests.

What these tragedies have in common is that they occurred a few days after the children ate Buitoni's Fraîch'Up pizzas produced in the same Nestlé factory.

Analyses have revealed that the pizzas were contaminated by Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria.

Only the Buitoni brand appears in this press release, which makes no mention of its owner, Nestlé. »

A group of researchers have developed a way to store solar energy in a liquid form that will be capable of creating electricity on-demand, as well as store the energy for a whopping 18 years.

In fact, in 2017, researchers at Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology unveiled a system that allowed the storage of solar energy dubbed MOST (Molecular Solar Thermal system).

Fusing the liquid solar energy storage solution with a thermoelectric generator -- an ultra-thin chip -- researchers could re-harness the power. »
