Radio-Controlled Genes — Radio waves can be used to activate calcium-sensitive genes by heating injected nanoparticles.
So you're a cyborg -- now what? — The brain and information technology.
Do as I Do, Not as I Say — An interesting essay on the differences in thinking between conservative Evangelicals and secular liberals. Unfortunately, the author doesn't at all address the pervasive intellectual dishonesty, shrieking bigotry and gospel of hatred that are so deeply entwined in the Evangelical movement, but rather seems to idealize the movement.
Advocates of same-sex marriage in Maryland hope to break losing streak — Speaking of shrieking bigotry and the gospel of hatred.

The most, and least, safe states in America — Amazingly enough, those law-and-order Red states full of gun toting' "real Americans" are the least safe. All us unarmed coastal liberals live in better, safer conditions. I'm sure Rush Limbaugh can explain this.

Wonder what Your Liberal Media is saying about this?
Obama's Afghan war unhindered by partisan fights — "Should Mitt Romney win the election," he observed, he doubts many on the left "who have refrained from criticizing President Obama for such things as the use of drones will extend the same courtesy" to Romney. Sigh.
