1. What does strongyle mean?

Is coeliac disease the tip of the iceberg?
Exploiting cancer’s metabolic quirk?

How to make cheap beer
1. take some root beer
2. put it into a square mug.
I sometimes have the bad habit of trying to multitask. A colleague of mine, a well-known parasitologist, told me that studies show that individual tasks are performed relatively poorly when done together with other tasks (multi-tasking).
I asked my friend if this then means that women, who are reputedly adept at and frequently do multitasking, actually tend to perform tasks more poorly. My friend (gender not disclosed) agreed without hesitation. Given that saying such a thing suggests my friend has some sort of death-wish, I , even I, am not going to disclose his/her name.
