First luxury Perigord truffle is cultivated in Britain

  First luxury Perigord truffle is cultivated in Britain A black Perigord truffle has been cultivated in Britain for the first time, and the scientists who announced the breakthrough on Monday said climate change could make it a new British crop. The 16-gramme (0.6-ounce) specimen was cultivated in Wales in the roots of a Mediterranean oak tree that had been treated with truffle spores.Scientists from Cambridge University and Mycorrhizal Systems Ltd (MSL) said they also added lime minerals in the surrounding soil to make it less acidic.A Perigord truffle can be worth as much as £1,700 ($2,200, 1,900 euros) per kilogramme in Britain.

The plant growth seen on the top of the bottle has drawn the interest of a scientist. Last week, the bottle was found by a woman in western France who, through the power of social media, sought him out to let him know his message was received.

Ten-year-old Devon Maher gave his father a bottle with a message inside to drop into the North Atlantic over a year ago during a crab fishing trip off the coast of Salvage, N.L., not knowing if anything would come of it.

Last week, the bottle was found by a woman in western France who, through the power of social media, sought him out to let him know his message was received.

"They were very excited about finding the bottle, and I've read in some of her comments that she would love to come to Newfoundland and come to Salvage," Devon's mother, Emily Maher, told the St. John's Morning Show on Monday.

Provincial rules for legal pot could bring new ways to run afoul of the law

  Provincial rules for legal pot could bring new ways to run afoul of the law If federal legislation moves forward as planned, as of next summer Canadians will be able to grow, possess and consume marijuana legally. But that doesn't mean they'll be able to do it without potential legal consequences.The Liberal government has said it wants to see marijuana made legal by July 1, 2018. There's debate as to whether that timeline will hold, but some provinces aren't waiting to find out as they introduce legislation and rules around how pot will be sold and where it can be used.

"She and her husband had been walking on the beach, I think it was a resort. They were walking on the beach with their dog and came across the bottle."

Devon was inspired after hearing his father say something about a message in a bottle one night, and brought the idea to his teacher — who thought it would be a good writing exercise for him.

After composing a short note and sealing it inside the glass bottle, he gave it to his father during the fishing trip on May 11, 2016.

Message received

Eighteen months later, someone wrote Emily Maher to let her know that Amélie Philip had posted in a Salvage-area Facebook group looking to track down Devon, to let him know that his message was found.

In a post on her own profile , Philip said she found the bottle in an area known as Plouarzel Beach.

"We managed to find little Devon thanks to your shares, thank you very much," she wrote in the post.

Philip and the Maher family have since been contacted by journalists from France and Canada who want to know the story, and the two families have chatted through Facebook and talked about how much they would love to visit each other's homes someday.

Unplanned science experiment

In the photo that Philip posted after the discovery, a growth of some kind can be seen hanging from the top of the bottle.

The Mahers first thought it was just a decoration that Philip had put on top after she discovered it, but Philip said it had developed on the bottle during its journey across the Atlantic.

It caught the eye of a scientist who called the Mahers to get more information.
