I found this surprising at first, but then realized a lot of reasons why this might be true: http://www.livescience.com/49628-evolution-big-bang-religion.html
Some people who reject evolution and the Big Bang are educated and knowledgeable about science, new survey data suggests

Wonderful news and so very overdue!
 
Holder limits seized-asset sharing that split billions with local, state police

Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday barred local and state police from using federal law to seize cash, cars and other property without proving that a crime occurred.

Holder's action represents the most sweeping check on police power to confiscate personal property since the seizures began three decades ago as part of the war on drugs.

A great story on the hunt to find a way to cure spinal cord injuries. This is something I really hope we see in our lifetime. http://bit.ly/1sJZAj3
Murray Blackmore, an assistant professor at Marquette University, has dedicated his professional life to researching a cure for spinal cord injuries, but his goal is also deeply personal — his mother lived for 26 years as a quadriplegic.

I can't believe I'm writing these words, but in this case, jeggings may be the solution!
 
Skinny jeans may be hazardous for your health, a new case report shows.

gross. Please expunge the word "pooperoni" from my brain.
 
Bacteria from baby poop can make delicious sausage, new research finds. More to the point, the poop bacteria have probiotic benefits, making them a healthier alternative to other bacterial fermenters.

Entomologist Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in the rainforest in Guyana, when he came across a "Goliath birdeater," possibly the world's largest spider.

Introduction
Welcome! I'm a staff writer for LiveScience.

Previously, I was knee-deep in freedom of information act requests as a homeland security and immigration researcher at the Center for Investigative Reporting. I've also written for Wired.com, The Daily Beast, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Scientific American and other publications.

My reporting on infant mortality was part of a series that was awarded a Casey Medal, an American Society of Newspaper Editors award for online story telling, and a communication award from the National Academies.

I hold a certificate in science writing from the University of California, Santa Cruz, a masters in bioengineering from the University of Washington, and undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering/Plan II from the University of Texas at Austin. 

I'm a not-so-secret fan of the oxford comma.

I'm always on the lookout for great stories, so go ahead and email me!
