Cognitive ability, such as decision-making skills, varies wildly from person to person, and although it is acknowledged that both genes and the environment play a role in this variation, linking specific genes to healthy cognitive abilities has proven incredibly difficult. However, a new study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience reveals that a genetic network within part of the brain may indeed be the genes researchers have been looking ...

Despite being one of ancient Egypt’s most famous queens, researchers still don't agree on where Queen Nefertiti was buried. Earlier this year, archaeologist Dr. Nicholas Reeves suggested her long-lost tomb is hidden within the burial chamber of King Tutankhamun. Now his theories may be proven true, as infrared scans have shown the possible location of a concealed chamber.

Okay, this is pretty bizarre. Astronomers have spotted strange “ripples” in the debris disk of a distant, young planetary system traveling away from its central star at 40,000 kilometers (25,000 miles) per hour. And at the moment, no one knows what’s causing them.

The 2nd Ammedment protects your right to bear arms in order that you might serve in the militia. The militia is all able-bodied people willing to contribute to armed defense. The basic functions of this right are to provide for personal defense, to allow groups of people to engage in orderly civil defense, and to allow the kind of training and experience with arms that would help raise an army in times of need. It's clear to me the 2nd Ammendment protects your right to own any sort of weapon that reasonably fulfills those purposes. However, there is nothing in the 2nd amendment that says you cannot have background checks on commercial gun purchases, or that some people can't be disqualified. In fact, in specifying that the right to bear arms allows someone to serve in a "well-regulated" militia, it can be argued that the 2nd amendment implies that the right to bear arms is conferred only to competent people. The practicalities of modern 21st century life suggest that the state has an interest in regulating what sort of firearms can be carried beyond the domain of your own homestead and immediate environment, and in what manner. I do believe there are some Constitutional and practical questions surrounding private gun ownership, and the regulation of specific types of firearms. But I have a hard time seeing how anyone can reasonably object to background checks for the commercial sale of a firearm. People with recent convictions for violent crimes and some felonies, or who have been hospitalized for posing a threat to themselves or others because of mental illness, should not be able to buy a gun from a store or gunshow. Family members and friends should not be allowed to knowingly give a firearm to someone with such a history. If such simple steps can even cut mass shootings in half, we can say that we are ready to join the rest of the civilized world. We can then say that we respect the right to bear arms, we don't corrupt the 2nd amendment into some kind of cultic worship of death and fear of strangers.

However ridiculous, these are fun to consider momentarily. :-P 
Even in a year rich with exciting astronomical news, NASA’s announcement on Monday of liquid water on the surface of Mars has stood out.

Finally we get a full trailer for Jessica Jones. I am so looking forward to this. Netflix nailed Daredevil  and it looks like this could be equally good.

The usual Gourmet Chinese Food place. Everything you'd expect (great food and lots of it, good service and a whole spectrum of food options). Great for any event or special meal. :-)

Very openly Christian-y. It was a little off-putting initially, but the food was decent (if a little on the expensive side).

Great food at a great price. The decor was a bit bland and the food options were pretty limited (mainly just Burgers), but with focus comes perfection. The Burgers were very delicious and incredibly cheap. The place has no Parking, but with its location it wasn't hard to find a Parking Spot nearby. Well worth the visit. I wish there was one here in Salem. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
