Gotta love that physics humor.
 
Quantum Political Scientists Hypothesize Country Headed In Both Right And Wrong Directions Simultaneously: “Rather than inhabiting a single reality where the nation’s future looks bright or an opposite one where Americans are struggling like never before, our research suggests that these two conditions actually exist concurrently in a state of superposition.” http://www.theonion.com/article/quantum-political-scientists-hypothesize-country-h-51186 
When, oh when, will the wave function collapse and rid us of this blasted superposition? :)
PASADENA, CA—Upending the conventionally held assumption that the United States must exclusively be moving along a single good or bad path forward, quantum political scientists at the California Institute of Technology published a paper Thursday hypothesizing that the country is, in fact, headed in both the right and wrong directions simultaneously.

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.

Goodness gracious. 
 
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.

I've lived in haunted houses, walked alone at night through some of the worst neighborhoods in crime riddled cities, I was in the army, Ive camped in the woods all alone 40-45 miles from the nearest sign of civilization, I even shot a 450 lb. Black Bear while hiking alone which made the record books for biggest sow ever hunted in the area....None of those things seemed to bother me to much...Now put a spider witgin visual distance of me and fear takes on a whole new meaning, if I were to encounter an arachnoid of that size while walking in the woods, , I would Never Ever go outside again I had my oun bubble or hamster wheel to protect me everywhere I went! Now I'm off to sleep and surely nightmares.

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.

I write about the distant past, dystopian futures, and everything in between for LiveScience.
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!
