If you enjoy fish regularly, the odds are good that you've eaten an imposter, according to new research. The ocean conservation group Oceana contends that 20% of seafood around the world is mislabeled, meaning it's very possible to buy fish in a grocery store or restaurant and not actually get what you paid for.

Nuts are considered a healthy snack, but whether they grow in the ground or on trees, there's always the risk for contamination. Following Salmonella outbreaks in 2001 and 2004, almonds are required to be pasteurized, which has other nut processors taking precautionary steps to ensure their product doesn't lead to the next outbreak. To maintain the taste and crunch we expect from our favorite nut, processors often turn to roasting, blanching or steam to reduce any potential contamination without the use of chemicals.

For dry roasting processes, nuts are continuously conveyed through a roaster with heated air applied above and below the product bed. Typically, peanuts are exposed to temperatures of 300 °F for 25 minutes, then stored in stainless steel bins in an isolated area to protect them from any contaminants. The bed depth, time and temperature are monitored throughout the roasting process. Validation can easily be achieved using MadgeTech's QuadThermoVault data logger, which can withstand temperatures up to 350 °C (662 °F). The QuadThermoVault is also equipped with four thermocouple channels to monitor the journey of nuts as they are processed, and it easily fits inside most conveyor belt ovens.

According to a study from NASA, global climate change models based on historical data are grossly inaccurate because of the ways temperature has been measured over the last 150 years. In fact, the study, led by NASA's Mark Richardson, concluded that 19 percent – almost one-fifth – of global warming over that timeframe was not accurately measured by contemporary records. This means that many of the more conservative global climate projections are actually incorrect.

Two main factors have led to this inaccuracy: incomplete historical data sets and variations in data gathering. These flaws in modeling methodology have been acknowledged within the scientific community for some time, but the NASA study is the first formal attempt to understanding the true scope of their impact.
