'We " ve also created new cartilage, skin, kidney, and heart tissue that was transplanted back into adult steers without rejection. This isn't some futuristic dream. We are doing this right now.' The dream has its detractors, and not just among politicians. Some biologists are set on avoiding moral issues by trying to coax adult stem cells back to an embryonic state. ...

    The Bogus Logic of The Beak People who have served in the Armed Forces may be familiar with the expression, 'If you can't dazzle then with your brilliance, baffle them with your baloney.' The Beak of the Finch uses such laughable logic, it is remarkable that anyone would believe it. The book does such a terrible job of presenting a case for evolution and history, that the only logical conclusion is that the book's true intent is to disprove it. Jonathan Weiner, The Beak of the Finch: A Story of ...

    We live in the technology age. Nearly everyone in America has a computer or at least access to one. How big are the computers you are used to? Most are about 7' by 17' by 17'. That's a lot of space. These cumbersome units will soon be replaced by something smaller. Much smaller, we " re talking about computers based on lone molecules. As far off as this sounds, scientists are already making significant into researching the feasibility of this. Our present technology is composed of solid-state m...

  • The Submarine Larger Warships

    I have always been an American history buff. I was aware that the first use of the Submarine during war was during the American Civil War. Since learning this fact, I had become, in a sense, amazed with submarines - thus, I have become rather interested in them. I found this paper as a good chance to learn more, a lot more, about early submarines and the evolution of them. With the ability to sink both large and small warships with the same percent chance, the value of the submarine is great bec...
