Paddy McGrath tweetz:
The whales do this for about 6-24 minutes at a time, exhibiting signs of REM (dream) sleep, an activity that accounts for 7% of their life.
The phenomenon was accidentally discovered by a team of UK and Japanese researchers in 2008.

Anyone else think that that Heineken sign [at O’connell Street Bridge] should be replaced with something less…beery? #Dublin #Ireland #moneytalks #visuallandscape
@Hippoclides @jnrbaker @broadsheet_ie @Dublin_ie @DublinTown @DubCityCouncil @dubcityarc @dubcivictrust @CiaranCuffe @journal_ie There was a harp on it once — a Guinness harp — and, for a time, it was even known coloquially as "Harp House". The Heineken sign shld go.
