Subject: New Examples of Growth in Calculus

My Calculus students are bored with every growth/decay problem involving an 
exponential function or being logistic. Does anyone have any ideas of 
naturally occuring growth/decay that might have a logarithmic model? 
trigonometric?  We are trying to get some new REAL examples of functions that 
students would find interesting and realistic.
