This looks like an animal that can kick start anything

Marrella is a genus of arthropod from the Cambrian Period. It had a colourful, iridescent sheen due to its diffraction grating pattern.

Petition to the UN in support of human embryonic stem cell research signed by 31 Nobel Laureates

As reported on October 5, 2011, in Nature, for the first time scientists used therapeutic cloning, known technically as somatic cell nuclear transfer (or SCNT), to create embryonic stem cells. The advance moved scientists one step closer to their goal of developing therapies to treat maladies including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, researchers said.
“This paper will be seen as significant both by those who are trying to use SCNT to produce human patient-specific embryonic stem cell lines and by those who oppose human ‘cloning’ experiments,” said Professor Robin Lovell-Badge, a division head at Britain’s National Institute for Medical Research.
The development in New York marked a landmark in stem cell study, but also represented a new flashpoint for opponents of SCNT, and other forms of embryonic stem cell research. Click on the link below to urge the United Nations to establish a timetable for a declaration on human cloning for therapeutic reasons. The text of the 2005 United Nations Declaration on Human Cloning deliberately blurs the line separating reproductive and therapeutic cloning, and lends itself to the interpretation that the world body has called for a ban of therapeutic cloning, a point not conceded by states voting against and abstaining from the declaration.

I've heard varying stories about the primates.

Comment by Daniel W on February 17, 2019 at 10:02am

Stephen, that's very interesting about Chernobl.  As I read it, I realized that I hoped the radiation levels would remain too high for human habitation, because that acts as a "wall" of sorts to make the area wild, and thrive.  Maybe it's wrpng to think that way, but I do.

The Darwin Day resolutions are important,  religious demagogues want to silence scientific progress and reason, and turn back the progress.  By honoring Darwin, we remind the world of the value of science.

I liked this article about chimpanzees, and how they structure their society, and empathy among chimps.   On BBC.  Somewhere I read that we learned much about nurturing and empathy from canines, who cared for their old and injured, and that primates were less kind to one another. Maybe that's not so true.

Darwin Day Resolutions Have Been Filed Again This Year

Darwin Day Resolution, which honors Charles Darwin on his birth date February the 12th, has been introduced in the House by Rep. Jim Himes. This resolution was introduced in the House by some members of Congress since 2011, and it had a companion in the Senate with Sen. Richard Blumenthal sponsoring Senate Resolution 63 and similar resolutions since 2015. The resolution, officially known as House Resolution 123, designates “February 12, 2019 as ‘Darwin Day’ and [recognizes] the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.” It also states the importance and the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection and criticizes the teaching of creationism in some public schools.

Chernobyl: The end of a three-decade experiment
Since the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986, an exclusion zone of more than 4,000 square kilometres has been abandoned. That could be about to change, as Victoria Gill discovered during a week-long trip to the zone.
