How To Wash Your Hands | David Rives

The Bible speaks of health practices including a reference to bathing in running water. Today, we realize that still water is less efficient at washing away germs and microbes.

To discover what a quark is, you’ve got to think small. Really, really small. So everything in the universe is made up of atoms.
