NASA-funded researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are tapping information found in the cells of all life on Earth, and using it to trace life’s evolution. They have learned that life is a master stenographer — writing, rewriting and recording its history in elaborate biological structures.
Some of the keys to unlocking the origin of life lie encrypted in the ribosome, life’s oldest and most universal assembly of molecules. Today’s ribosome converts genetic information (RNA) into proteins that carry out various functions in an organism. But the ribosome itself has changed over time. Its history shows how simple molecules joined forces to invent biology, and its current structure records ancient biological…

A Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 fighter jet prepares to land at the Akrotiri British airbase on September 27, 2014 after returning from a mission over Iraq to strike at Islamic State jihadists
The package, which still requires parliamentary approval, covers Tornado reconnaissance jets, a naval frigate and up to 1,200 troops following a request from France in the wake of deadly jihadist attacks in Paris last month.

As working dinners go, President Obama’s meal Monday night in Paris with French President Francois Hollande, Secretary of State John Kerry and others wasn’t too shabby.
No cartons of takeout — instead, the gang fueled up after a long day of climate talks at L’Ambroisie, the three-Michelin-starred temple of gastronomie in the Marais neighborhood.
Per the Michelin Guide, the ornately be-chandelier-ed dining room is known for “incomparable classicism and an immortal feast for the senses.”
Perhaps worried that Obama would create an international faux pas by ordering a burger or a margarita (two of his faves), a reporter asked what he planned to eat. Obama was, appropriately, diplomatic: “I will get recommendations from the president,” he answered, nodding in Hollande’s direction.
According to the AP, Obama cracked a joke about the opulence of the setting. “Don’t break the chandelier,” he warned as a reporter’s…

The stigma around the discriminatory, authoritarian and deceptive nature of PREVENT is such that the Muslim community largely rebuffs PREVENT as far as possible. Freedom of Information requests to determine which community organisations are funded by PREVENT are routinely refused on spurious “security” grounds. Rob Burton, head of the Centre for Youth and Community Development (CYCD) in Bury Park, said in the Guardian:
“The difficulty with the current policies and processes is that there’s a lot of mistrust – which, bluntly, is about the government spying on Muslims, wanting people to ‘shop’ their neighbours.”
To avoid the stigma, his organisation refuses financial support that might entail “grassing” on the local community. Interestingly, the report also highlights that the police is following the neocon spin strategy of selling PREVENT as “safeguarding” instead of a counter-radicalisation concept. The hate-funded neoconservative Henry Jackson Society in its proposals to suppress criticism of…

Digital Cinema Media (DCM), the media agency that supplies adverts to 80% of UK cinemas caused consternation last week when it announced its refusal to show a 60-second advert by the Church of England encouraging people to pray. The ad would have been guaranteed a sizable audience had it been permitted to air as planned before the upcoming Star Wars: the Force Awakens, advance ticket sales for which have broken all known records.
DCM said the decision was based on concerns that the ad risked upsetting or offending audiences and ran contrary to their policy not to show ads that in “the reasonable opinion of DCM constitute Political or Religious Advertising.”
David Cameron, Richard Dawkins, Carrie Fisher and Stephen Fry were among the chorus of voices to lambast the decision. Jim Shannon, Democratic Unionist MP put down an early day motion

The American Bar Association just released its list of the top 100 law-related blogs and — guess what? — this blog made the list!
The ABA considers this little blog about Tennessee family law one of the very best legal blogs.
Looking back on my first post nearly six years ago, I never imagined the blog would receive this kind of recognition.
I want to thank all of you who read this blog, who share the posts with others through social media, who comment on the posts, and who recommend it to your friends and colleagues.
