Not that the were wolf is a totally fictitious entity either --- but recessive phenotypes can be changed through surgery (even if it shouldn't be necessary), while vilifying a belief system-- or scape-goating it-- can end up with all of us accused, with no way to prove innocence.

Some stunning high-speed photographs of waves.  They're all worth clicking through; my favorite may be number 7 in the "multiwave" series.

The genome sequence of the HeLa cell line was just published without anyone even asking the family for their consent.

I'm honestly really surprised that Henrietta Lacks' descendants continue to get fucked over this way, after the book came out. In my circles, everyone read it or at least heard about it. You'd think we would have made /some/ progress on research ethics by now. AAAARGH.

"""
Last week, the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee of the 
House Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Representative Tim Murphy (R-PA), convened a forum with parents, doctors, and service providers to discuss reforming mental health law and policy for people with severe mental illness after the Newtown tragedy. Noticeably absent from the conversation: people like me, people living with a mental illness.

When Representative Murphy appeared on CSPAN I called the show to find out why people with mental illness were not invited to testify. His response: “I am not going to bring a convicted felon out of prison to talk […] I am not going to do that here that is a dangerous situation”.

Photos from Contact, the 10-day LARP I helped write (and unfortunately missed half of due to norovirus).
