"When the scientific brain creates ideas, it is a cat stalking a mouse. The mouse is the idea. One hears it first, the little feet. Or maybe a smell. Once detected, it runs around among the leaves. Meanwhile, the cat watches, titillated. Haunches bunch and tense. Feet tap ever so slightly. Then there is the moment in which the cat pounces and, with the pounce, a resolution. The science we see comes after the resolution. It is the moment in which a journalist presents a scientist and her dead mouse to the world."

Medical schools typically teach only a few hours about LGBT health over four years of training, said Randall Sell, an associate professor who created and directs Drexel's new program. He is hoping to educate health-care professionals and aspiring ones on the diverse needs of the LGBT community.
"For a handful of things, perhaps it doesn't matter," said Sell. "Like if you have a broken arm."

"Aside from its surprising gallop and its anti-clotting saliva, the bat also has a heat-seeking face."

You don't see that phrase too often.
Ed Yong originally shared:
 
I loved the simplicity of this story. You have a protein that warns you of really high temperatures. You tweak its sensitivity by around ten degrees or so and presto, you have the ability to find warm-blooded prey. Go evolution!
Animal behaviour | Mythology imbues the vampire bat with supernatural powers, but its real abilities are no less extraordinary. Aside from its surprising gallop and its anti-clott
