Doubting DNA evidence

A human chimera shows why DNA evidence is questionable. After receiving a bone marrow transplant, Chris Long's DNA was almost entirely replaced by his donor's—at least as far as genetic tests are concerned.

This is an amazingly spooky real life story that almost rivals Greek myths about the chimera. A man in the US got a bone marrow transplant. His donor was an unknown German fellow. Now they increasingly share DNA as a result of the medical procedure and the transplant recipient is rapidly vanishing from

This is an amazingly spooky real life story that almost rivals Greek myths about the chimera. A man in the US got a bone marrow transplant. His donor was an unknown German fellow. Now they increasingly share DNA as a result of the medical procedure and the transplant recipient is rapidly vanishing from a genetic perspective. He is a human chimera.

Food cabals

The avocado has become one of the most dangerous foods. The meteoric rise of US demand for avocados has been a blessing and a curse for Mexican growers: Many now hire armed guards to ward off unwanted attention from cartels.

The avocado trade has become one of the more dangerous fields in food

And once more, food consumption patterns become a geopolitical problem and cause problems for local populations. One person’s superfood another’s inflationary crime problem. We so urgently need a better way of labelling and even understanding our food, it’s provenance, it’s impact, our impact...

Take flight

Amazon is struggling to hold onto overworked, underpaid pilots. Pushed to their limits and fed up with unreasonable demands, 60% of the pilots who work for Amazon contractors are looking for other jobs, according to one union survey.

The same safety regulations should apply to all pilots. There have been enough episodes of "MAYDAY " highlighting the dangers of pilot fatigue. It is surprising that neither the NTSB or the FAA hasn't stepped in to stop this dangerous discrepancy. An additional control would be to extend responsibility

The same safety regulations should apply to all pilots. There have been enough episodes of "MAYDAY " highlighting the dangers of pilot fatigue. It is surprising that neither the NTSB or the FAA hasn't stepped in to stop this dangerous discrepancy. An additional control would be to extend responsibility for hours of service to any company that charters an aircraft.

The same logic should also apply to all commercial drivers. By making the customer responsible would eliminate the excuse that delivery drivers are independent contractors not controlled by the "customer".

Boeing flew real Star Wars X-Wings at a Disney grand opening. The sci-fi star fighters offered an early glimpse at Boeing's experimental line of drones, designed to lug 500 pounds (227 kg) of cargo for industrial clients, TechCrunch reports.

This was out of this world. Having X-Wings fly at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge for the media day for the Rise of the Resistance attraction and the attraction's opening day for the public, was a really, really gutsy move from Boeing and Disney, considering that the drones are still in testing phases.

This was out of this world. Having X-Wings fly at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge for the media day for the Rise of the Resistance attraction and the attraction's opening day for the public, was a really, really gutsy move from Boeing and Disney, considering that the drones are still in testing phases.

The X-Wing designs make use of forced perspective which is frequently used at Disney Parks to make buildings appear larger or, in some cases, further away, than they really are.

Bon voyage!

  • There are service dogs, as a disabled Veteran, I have a service dog. She goes with me everywhere. A support animal is not a service animal and have no right to get on a plane, go into a restaurant, or any other place that does not allow animals.

    There are service dogs, as a disabled Veteran, I have a service dog. She goes with me everywhere. A support animal is not a service animal and have no right to get on a plane, go into a restaurant, or any other place that does not allow animals. This whole emotional support stuff is a recent phenomenon, and should be deleted. It just complicates life for people that need a real service animal, which is a dog.

  • There is a vast difference between a service dog and a support dog. One is highly trained and the other is not. Service dogs can go anywhere by law. Support dogs can not. This needs to be addressed quickly or all the snowflakes and buttercups will be wanting support animals everywhere they go. All of

    There is a vast difference between a service dog and a support dog. One is highly trained and the other is not. Service dogs can go anywhere by law. Support dogs can not. This needs to be addressed quickly or all the snowflakes and buttercups will be wanting support animals everywhere they go. All of them need to put on their big girl and big boy underwear and just buck it up. If you can't deal with life then you need therapy and na3ybe medication. Life is full of hard knocks. Get used to it because thats life. Quit trying to attach a support animal to a highly trained service dog status. They are entirely two different things. And NO getting a certificate online does no qualify them as service digs. There is a nation wide standard for service dogs. Specialized trainers provide the training and certification and no it is not a 2 week course.

  • Mental illness is real. There are people in this world that combat it just as much as those who need service animals. There seems to be a problem between support animal users and service animal users.

    The whole point of these animals is to make our lives better. They both solve issues people have

    Mental illness is real. There are people in this world that combat it just as much as those who need service animals. There seems to be a problem between support animal users and service animal users.

    The whole point of these animals is to make our lives better. They both solve issues people have. We need to stop fighting about who gets what. Focus on figuring out a solution to get what everyone needs.

    We shouldn't be asking why does someone get this while the other gets that. We should be asking how we can help one another. We are all in the same boat. Fighting doesn't solve anything.
