WINTERCRAFT:GLITTERGLUESNOWFLAKES This glitter glue snowflake is quick and fun to make and is suitable for all ages. Younger children can keep their snowflake designs simple or trace designs you have created, while older children can really go to town! YOU WILL NEED: Acetate Glitter glue A snowflake design drawn (or printed) onto paper (optional) INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Simply draw a snowflake shape on to the acetate with glitter glue. Leave to dry and trim around the edges. If you don’t want to free hand your snowflake you can also tape your acetate over a pre-printed snowflake design and trace with the glitter glue. Directions: 1. Heat butter and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until just browned. Stir in broth, chicken seasoning, pasta, and sun-dried tomatoes. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to medium low heat. Cook 10-15 minutes until pasta is al dente. 2. Add in heavy cream, whole milk, and mozzarella cheese. Stir until the sauce is smooth and bubbly and the cheese is melted. If the pasta needs to cook longer, cover and simmer on medium heat for another five minutes. 3. Stir in chopped basil. Dish onto plates, top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

ELECTRONICNOSE A new experimental technology can “smell” a

person’s breath and then diagnose potential diseases. Much like our fingerprints, our chemical composition is also completely unique. Diseases also have unique

chemical signatures, which can be detected on our breath. The “Na-Nose” consists of a breathing tube attached to a sensor. The sensor then sends information acquired to software. One day, developers hope to have the technology available via smart phones where we could monitor our health on a regular basis.
