Nature reports South Korean researchers have engineered pigs to carry the myostatin gain-of-function allele that gives Belgian Blue cattle their Schwartzeneggerian build.

The subheadline about regulatory hopes is provocative but deceptive. Pork is a cheap commodity product and there's no compelling commercial case for extra meaty pork chops. Regulators set a very high bar for transgenic food animals, and scaling this breed up for commercial production would be a big investment for an uncertain regulatory outcome.

File this under Gee Whiz (fun but will go nowhere) but be assured these "unnatural" images will appear in anti-GMO propaganda.
Researchers hope the genetically engineered animals will speed past regulators.

I could really use a few of these Beignets and a pot of #coffee right about now. Happy Sunday folks. ☕☕☕

I hope those of you who celebrated had a spectacular 4th of July. I'm still paying for my celebrations. LOL

Make it a GREAT day!

First, the dumping stopped, and citizens made an effort to clean up the junk that was present. Then peddlers stopped dealing drugs in the area and the prostitutes left; walls were no longer vandalized with graffiti.
It is common knowledge that a person’s surroundings play a vital role in sculpting the mind, ideologies, and thought process of an individual. A stunning example of this is found in the case of...

 My wife helped our ghetto neighborhood become a much better place by walking our dog every morning. Soon other folks began walking their dogs and soon after that gang activities just sorta melted away.

“Being able to make people feel cold in the summer is a sign of power and prestige."

Commercial real estate brokers and building managers say sophisticated tenants specify so-called chilling capacity in their lease agreements so they are guaranteed cold cachet. In retailing, luxury stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue are kept colder than more down-market Target, Walmart and Old Navy. Whole Foods is chillier than Kroger, which is chillier than Piggly Wiggly.

By an 8 to 1 margin, the most conservative Supreme Court in US history decided that the Federal Law that authorized strict penalties for 3rd strike felonies is unconstitutional. This reverses decades of cases where the Court ruled that locking up people for minor crimes and throwing away the key is just fine.
The Supreme Court in a near-unanimous 8-1 decision, struck down parts of a three-strikes law that it has been protecting for decades.

And: relatively small quibble, but the fed law in question is actually a fourth strike law, not a third strike law.

On point, except if you don't feel good watching Animal Planet's "Too Cute - Puppies", you are made of stone.

Under the ADA, transportation providers are required by law to accommodate wheelchair users if the equipment can fit in their car. But Uber has launched a war to make itself exempt from the anti-discrimination law. Uber claims that because it’s a technology company, not a transportation service, it doesn’t fall under the ADA’s jurisdiction. Lawyers for Uber wrote: “Defendants deny that Uber offers a taxi service or that Uber has a fleet of drivers.”

Is Uber letting its drivers dodge The Americans With Disabilities Act?
