Human pregnancy is weird and creepy.
 
"In other words, it's just the kind of effect natural selection is renowned for: odd, hackish solutions that work to solve proximate problems."

Innovation is expensive.  But without it (and the high up front cost), no cure would exist.  While the treatment may cost $1000 a day, it's not a lifetime drug.  If they own the intellectual property on this drug, which didn't exist before (and therefore no one had access to it), then they have the right to charge what they want.
The treatment for hepatitis C is so effective that patients and doctors are clamoring for it, but heath insurers are balking at the steep costs

All I know is that multiple insurance companies stopped covering it at about the same time, there is no generic, there isn't really a comparable drug, and until insurance companies stopped covering it, it was widely used and highly effective.

I'm not sure how I feel about this person being ripped apart.  What I'm seeing here isn't necessarily evidence of fraud.  I'm particularly suspicious of a co-author attacking her.  If your name is on it, you should have contributed to the work on a significant basis.  That being said, if the results were fabricated, that needs to be punished.  It's not like there are lots of dollars out there floating around for researchers to fund their research.  Still, I have no idea whether any of my work was ever repeated by anyone else, but I am certain that the results were exactly as I described them.  Sure, the photos were "altered," but only in the sense that it made it easier to see the results in a printed publication.  That does not mean that the results were fabricated or the images were doctored.
The images of DNA fragments, the lab says, were either doctored or entirely fabricated.

With the seeds available online, this will be the biggest release of a genetically engineered plant into the world.

Arizona is
Full of backwards neo-cons.
But sunshine still tempts.

What's in a name?  Quite a lot, it turns out.  This is very interesting.  I enjoyed the inset on the right side, lower part of the article.  I didn't think about her name until the second paragraph.

Oh seriously?
If so, Doofy Boy is more off his rocker than I guessed.  Oh, and they're scheduling a war with South Korea in 2015.

The logic is flawed. Duck duck gray duck results in slow children. With duck duck goose, you had to be pretty quick if you were the tag man. Children raised on duck duck goose would have a much better chance at escaping the bully that leaped from around the corner because their speed and reaction times are improved, while the poor gray duck child stands there dumbfounded listening for the right color to run.

Hey, I didn't write the article.  If one must apply logic to the superiority of a child's game, then you should do it right.  And Brandon exaggerates.

I purchased my first brand new car, a Hyundai Veloster, at Morrie's. My salesman Perry Smulders hunted down a car with the color and features I wanted. I also purchased the Buy Happy package, which includes the first 3 years of oil changes and free car washes, so I go to the dealership for oil changes and car washes, and I've found the service department to be superb as far as customer service goes.
