STAR OF THE DAY

OKSANA CHUSOVITINA

The 33-year-old, partaking in her fifth Olympics, showed that women’s gymnastics isn’t entirely reserved for the young pixies. Competing for Germany in the individual event finals, Chusovitina — who has a 9-year-old son and is 10 years older than any other women’s gymnast this year — earned a silver medal.

INVENTION OF THE DAY

Biological pest control.

As early as 304 A.D., the Chinese documented instances of controlling the insect population to protect crops and plants.

The first example, was when farmers used huang gan ants to safeguard citrus fruit trees.
