As if we needed another reason to love guacamole: A recent study found that compounds extracted from Hass avocados halted the growth of oral cancer cells by killing some and preventing precancerous cells from developing. The monounsaturated fat in avocados helps the body more readily absorb all the bioactive compounds they contain, which is why avocados are also linked to other types of cancer prevention. Not sure how to use avocados beyond whipping up some guacamole? Here’s an easy recipe:
Spicy Avocado Soup With Chipotle Peppers
In a large pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil and sauté 1 cup of chopped red onion, 1 cup of chopped yellow bell pepper, and 2 medium garlic cloves. Add 2 1/2 cups of vegetable or chicken stock, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Transfer mixture to a food processor, add 2 large avocados, peeled and cubed, and 1 medium canned chipotle pepper, seeded and minced. Puree until smooth, adding more broth if needed and more chipotle to taste. Garnish with a generous dollop of sour cream, a handful of chopped fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.

The Carboniferous-Permian Transition Conference will be held at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque, NM from May 23 through May 25, 2013. The Conference is a professional conference of scientists presenting research of global significance on the Carboniferous-Permian boundary. Two field trips, one pre-meeting and one post-meeting, will be offered in conjunction with the Conference. The pre-meeting field trip will take place on May 22nd and include a trip to Carrizo Arroyo. Please do be aware that the field trips are not wheelchair accessible. Carrizo Arroyo is one of the most paleontologically diverse localities across the Carboniferous-Permian boundary. It exposes mixed marine and nonmarine strata of the Bursum Formation that yield everything from plants and insects to fusulinids and brachiopods. This section plays a key role in global marine/non-marine correlations because of the co-occurrence of conodonts and insect-zone species. This trip is limited to 25 attendees. The post-meeting field trip will be from May 26 through May 28th 2012. During this trip we will visit the area around Socorro, NM. East of Socorro, marine and nonmarine sedimentary rocks of Middle Pennsylvanian-Early Permian age are exposed along the eastern margin of the Rio Grande rift. This is one of the best exposed and most studied Pennsylvanian-Permian sections in New Mexico, and recent work has brought forth diverse paleofloras, detailed conodont biostratigraphy, extensive ichnofossil assemblages, and much more. The three-day trip, headquartered in Socorro, will work through this entire section, focusing on issues of stratigraphy, sedimentation and paleontology. This trip is limited to 40 attendees. The registration fee for the conference will be $150 prior to February 1, 2013; $200 from February 1st through April 30th 2013; and $250 from May 1st through the conference. The pre-meeting field trip to Carrizo Arroyo will be an additional $25 and the post-meeting
