  6. The Royal Society, founded in London in 1660, is making public manuscripts by figures like Sir Isaac Newton. Benjamin Franklin's account of his risky kite-flying experiment is also available on the Trailblazing website. Society president Lord Rees said the papers documented some of the most "thrilling moments" in science history. source: BBC News - The Royal Society puts historic papers online TRS Trailblazing site: Royal Society

  8. It's terrible that someone should have to fear persecution for their beliefs in their own home-nation, but to be clear this woman is a bit more than just an atheist: For some reason I think being a Raelian would get someone a bit more public attention in a Muslim theocracy than would just being an apostate who rejects Islam. Again, not that it makes it right to persecute someone for their beliefs, but Raelism is pretty obviously crazy in the same way religious beliefs are in that there is zero evidence to support it and it just sounds like some terrible idea contrived by desperate and igno
  9. ScienceDaily (Nov. 25, 2009) — A key question in the origin of biological molecules like RNA and DNA is how they first came together billions of years ago from simple precursors. Researchers in Italy have reconstructed one of the earliest evolutionary steps yet: generating long chains of RNA from individual subunits using nothing but warm water. Origin of life: Generating RNA molecules in water

  11. PASADENA, Calif.—Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have uncovered evidence of a primitive emotion-like behavior in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. Their findings, which may be relevant to the relationship between the neurotransmitter dopamine and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), are described in the December issue of the journal Neuron. Caltech scientists find emotion-like behaviors, regulated by dopamine, in fruit flies
  12. ScienceDaily (Nov. 24, 2009) — Leaf-cutter ants, which cultivate fungus for food, have many remarkable qualities. Here's a new one to add to the list: the ant farmers, like their human counterparts, depend on nitrogen-fixing bacteria to make their gardens grow. The finding, reported Nov. 20 in the journal Science, documents a previously unknown symbiosis between ants and bacteria and provides insight into how leaf-cutter ants have come to dominate the American tropics and subtropics. Ants use bacteria to make their gardens grow
