Potaturbine

“The new bio-refinery at 2 Sisters Food Group’s Carlisle factory is expected to produce 3,500 megawatt hours (MWh) each year in electricity and the equivalent of 5,000MWh in steam to help power the factory. The anaerobic digestion plants will use potato waste from the factory’s mashed potato and pie manufacturing lines as a feed stock.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/sep/29/mashed-potato-to-power-food-factory)

Their other rotten potato products are destined for incineration.

Manganodules

“Along the Pacific Rim of Fire, vast beds of manganese nodules hold promise…” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/09/29/us-newzealand-ocean-idUKKCN0RT07K20150929)

A bed of nodules often promises, er, a rim of fire.

Belugared

Georgia “Aquarium had been trying to overturn a US federal decision which initially denied its request to import 18 [beluga] whales captured in Sea of Okhotsk, Russia. … That original refusal to allow a permit has now been upheld and delivers a significant blow to the captivity industry in the US.” (http://uk.whales.org/news/2015/09/us-aquarium-loses-court-battle-to-import-beluga-whales)

Thus leaving the captivity industry looking rather like a blow hole.
