Dear Valued Customer:

Thank you for filing a letter with our Department of Complaints located in our prestigious Office of Sure, Sure, Whatever You Say. While we were sorry to learn that you were less than satisfied with the musical plastic toy-set (with no OFF button), purchased for your grandkids, we are pleased to offer you a semi-free gift with your next purchase of a larger plastic toy-set with super flashing lights. But first, for a limited time only - we are offering you this exclusive opportunity to step away from our colorful catalogue of things; put your wallet in a hidden drawer - and go for a walk. During that walk, collect your thoughts - 17 syllables worth of thoughts, and write it down. We present to you the gift of time. Time for reflection. For creativity. For stillness. For enjoyment. Time for Haiku.

Andy Smith (Biology) was interviewed by BBC radio to talk about his research on sticky animal secretions. The interview was part of an episode for their CrowdScience program called "What is the point of slime?". In the interview, Dr. Smith talks about the molecular structure of slime and how it gives rise to unusual properties. In particular, some slimes are remarkably sticky, and extraordinarily difficult to wash off. The discussion of slime's structure is followed by other interviews focusing on the diversity of slimes in the animal kingdom and their impact on humans before returning to Dr. Smith's work and the potential for designing novel adhesives for medical use.
