Mutant fruit flies have helped solve one of the biggest puzzles in genetics: how the stress of starvation or drug addiction can pass on its ill effects to the sufferer's children and grandchildren.

Stress is thought to cause "epigenetic" changes that do not alter the sequence of DNA but leave chemical marks on genes that dictate how active they are. Previous studies have shown that if mice are stressed for two weeks after birth, their offspring will show signs of depression and anxiety, despite enjoying the usual levels of maternal care. And there is mounting evidence that common health problems including diabetes, obesity, mental illness and even fear could be the result of stress on parents and grandparents.

However, until now attempts to identify changes in inherited DNA that might explain how these effects are passed on have failed.

Now, Shunsuke Ishii at the Riken Tsukuba Institute in Ibaraki, Japan, and colleagues have identified a molecular mechanism by which the effects of stress can be handed down without altering genes or DNA.

(New Scientist)

Most interesting--inheritable stress!! The says a lot about memetic patterns in families, indirectly. Big hmmmmmm.

Janie, I've been loading recorded books into the "library" for such things in Windows Media Player for my mp3 player. And then I lost the mp3 player. The files are still here. Do you have a DVD drive or a BluRay drive on your computer? I can load up some of these and send them along. Agatha Christie, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, Georgette Heyer (yes! Those old regency novels from the 1960s and 70s are turning up on recorded books. I haven't listened to any yet, though I read them all when I was a teen).

I'm kicking myself over the player. Maybe it fell out on the shuttle bus at work. I need to see if there is a lost and found. It might be right here in plain sight in the house - it's so small, and my house is so cluttered - you see the problem. I looked in my pickup, it isn't in any of the crevices around the seat. At least some of these files would go to some good!

Wow, fambly -it are amazin' we is so tuned in to the same wave links as to eschew all the silly Vampire novels and spin-offs on the books on CD rack at Cracker Barrel.

All together now, diahrhect all our thought waves as one to "Cracker Barrel" to cause some new interesting books to appear as I seem to have made enough trips north over the last 6 months to have exhausted the supply and now am reduced to Scott Trudow novels to accompany me on my weekly journey.

How about some good non-fiction, or some new, top-notch "young adult" fantasy or sci-fi?

Come on, Magical MOAB, you can do it. Don't reduce my options to Sarah Palin's memoir in the non-fiction category. Puleeeeseeeeee!

Shane was menaced by what may have been a werewolf on one occasion when he was lost in the woods near Blind River. Fortunately, he escaped. Or it may be that his personal "aura" proved too strong for the creature and it opted to leave him alone.

You can never tell when you might be attacked by a rabid werewolf. It's best to be prepared. I also carry a silver dagger, a blunderbuss loaded with silver shot, and bathe daily in silver nitrate solution followed by an applications of garlic oil. So far it's been very effective. Not even a cold, much less a werewolf, and people always respect my "personal space."

"they never pick on each other, kind of like CEOs, or Republicans"

Ha! What wishful thinking! What stark naivete! The fact is, both CEOs and Republicans are quite happy to savagely attack and destroy one another as they battle tooth and nail for financial and political gain within their own competitive circles. As a matter of fact, it is the very credo of their existence: "survival of the fittest" (meaning the most amoral and ruthless)

Your evident wish to see them as a single monolithic bloc is as foolish as their corresponding wish to see all "liberals" in that fashion.

In short, sir, you are sailing a ship which lacks a rudder and has sprung a serious leak. ;-D

I am Bhork'm-Rif of the K-tel'Naabi, the most advanced race in interstellar space. It is our opinion that Hokh-Ptui's analyses of the Amos are superficial and inadequate. We intend to beam the Amos up and do extensive research upon his mental and emotional matrices in our continuing endeavour to answer the burning question, "Is there other intelligent life out there in space?" (The general opinion here is, 'No....probably not...', but we remain ever hopeful.)

A few weeks of scanning, probing, and simple intelligence tests should establish clearly whether the Amos deserves to be listed among the ranks of "sentient beings" or whether he is simply a form of mobile sea slug or common mollusk.

I am convinced the Hokh-Ptui is a genuine space alien of an advanced type, and that everything he tells us about Amos is true. He's not of the alien group (the Greys) that has interacted with Shane, though, so I assume he is probably of a different race entirely from them.

Apparently Al Einstein hasn't yet gotten the word that I've changed the spelling of my name, but then he could be doing a Gedankenexperiment on time and whatever it is that passes for reality.

I enjoy Hokh-Ptui's posts, as they confirm something I believe we've all suspected, but I'm not posting them -- just in case you may have thought otherwise.

Repair will not take long, as the mind needing repair is smaller than average for your species, which is small indeed.

You made a pretty serious spelling error, Hokh-Ptui. As an almost omniscient being, I will hereby give the appropriate correction: "Rapaire will not take long, as the Rapaire is smaller than average for your species, which is small indeed."

Anything to preserve clarity, as I've always said.

Ragnarok around our has has for years been an online video game the kids used to pay to join and play. I don't know if they're still playing it.

Dogs (three) settled down in the back. I take a handful of dog treats to the door every so often and they do tricks. Every so often I hear Poppy give Zeke a quick irritated bark. Cinnamon has relaxed. I'm going to pick up another child's wading pool at the grocery store and the back yard will be a dog spa for the next couple of weeks. If any of you wants to take a quick dip, that's okay also. :)

What--never?

Well, hardly ever.

Wikipedia kindly informs us all that in Norse mythology, Ragnarök (Old Norse "final destiny of the gods") is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdall, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and reborn gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.

The event is attested primarily in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In the Prose Edda, and a single poem in the Poetic Edda, the event is referred to as Ragnarökr or Ragnarökkr (Old Norse "Doom of the Gods"), a usage popularized by 19th century composer Richard Wagner with the title of the last of his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas, Götterdämmerung.

I was only aware of part of this, because I am not BOoque Manne, nor wish to be. To him I would only say:
Fylliz fiǫrvi
feigra manna,
rýđr ragna siǫt
rauđom dreyra.
Svǫrt verđa sólskin

MLS - perhaps in this instance, Multiple Listing Service. You've listed many kiddos for the summer program, Ms MLS. :)

Moonglow has pushed back her graduation to next fall. She can push her grade point just enough to graduate Cum Laude, and she'll get early access to some of the graduate school funding, etc. One of the classes she'll take in the fall is an intro to Library Science. This child had a library card when she was three years old (and she SIGNED IT HERSELF!) Okay, at three it was a scribble, but by four she'd taught herself how to write. Anyway, if there was ever a library person, this kid is it.
