WORD OF THE DAY: fraud n.

Definition: 1. deceit or trickery perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage. 2. something that is not what it pretends. 3. a deceitful person; impostor.

Example: Do not enter the contest! It is a fraud.

Synonyms: deceit, fake, hoax

 

FACT OF THE DAY:  

You can sniff an onion or peel the layers without shedding a tear, but once you crush, chop, or cut an onion there’s a good chance those tear ducts will start working. The thing that is causing you to tear up is actually a defense mechanism of the onion to deter intruders trying to eat it when it was in the ground.

An onion bulb is composed of many rectangular cells, and within each of the cells are vacuoles. The vacuoles are spaces enclosed by a membrane that are filled with an enzyme called lachrymatory factor synthase, or LF, which is an irritant. When these vacuoles are broken open, like they would be when they are cut, LF is released. This enzyme then mixes with the contents of the onion cell, which contain sulfenic acid, and a chemical reaction begins to take place. The result of the chemical reaction produces a gas called syn-propanethial-S-oxide which floats into the air and can quickly irritate a person’s eyes. The nerves in the eye then react to the gas and produce tears to try to get rid of the irritant. This is the complex process that makes us cry while cutting onions.

This chemical reaction is more pronounced in some varieties of onion over others. Red, white, and yellow onions have higher concentrations of LF while green onions, scallions and sweet onions contain lower concentrations. That’s why all onions don’t necessarily cause you to tear up.

And just a random fact!!  Jell-o once came in coffee, celery and seasoned tomato flavors!!
