The Social Rewind for January 26, 2016

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: In a nod toward National Peanut Butter Day, this Agilent Technologies post looks at two peanut safety processes: A way to detect peanuts in food, for the safety of people with peanut allergies, and a method for protecting peanuts and peanut butter from cancer-causing chemicals found in soil mold.

We’re about a month into the New Year and many folks are probably struggling with their diet resolutions. This Workrite Ergonomics post discusses some common sense, simple rules for healthy eating.

Laboratory Equipment magazine’s post gives us a heads up to a rare cosmic show: Now into February, the five bright planets (Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter) will shine in the sky every morning.
