Somewhat Logically - Culling Sacred Cows
Excerpts: One of the sacred cows of the current administration's economic policy is that tax cuts increase prosperity. It just isn't true.
Recently, the conventional economic theories have been taking a bit of a pasting at the hands of scientists and mathematicians. The Laffer curve and its "trickle down" economic theorists should at least have been able to model the outcome of tax cuts, but they couldn't.
"If you can't to that, you're dead in the water," pointed out J. Doyne Farmer, a physicist at the Santa Fe Institute studying wealth distribution.

An Emptier Emptiness?, Nature
Excerpts: Temperatures similar to those reached an instant after the Big Bang can be created in collisions of gold atoms. The resulting fireballs may allow us a glimpse of a world that is more symmetrical than our own.
The concept that what we ordinarily perceive as empty space is in fact a complicated medium is a profound and pervasive theme in modern physics. This invisible, inescapable medium alters the behaviour of the matter that we do see. (...) this concept of a symmetry-breaking aether has been extremely fruitful (...).
Asymmetrical Threat Averted
Excerpts: The somites are embryonic elements that give rise to the muscles, skeleton and some skin layers of the trunk. They form in a symmetrical fashion, but to do so they must be shielded from asymmetrical cues.
The human body looks deceptively symmetrical from the outside. In contrast to this external symmetry, our internal organs are in an asymmetrical, yet reproducible, arrangement. The heart is on the left and the lung next to it is smaller than that on the right.
Natural Symmetry, Nature
Excerpts: Directional inference: scientific convention applies conclusions from animal studies to humans but not the reverse, contradicting current evidence.
Excerpt: A large space of different neural models exists from simple mathematical abstrctions to detailed biophysical representations with strongly differing levels of complexity and biological relevance. Previous comparisons between models have looked at biological realism or mathematical tractability rather than expressive power. This paper, however, investigates whether more sophisticated models are better suited to a complex sensorimotor control task than simpler ones, or whether the more general nature of groups of the simpler neurons allows them to collectively solve complex tasks better despite their individual simplicity. (...) most complex and biologically based model is significantly better at walking control, even producing recognizable gaits.
Excerpt: Motivated by the human autonomous development process from infancy to adulthood, we have built a robot that develops its cognitive and behavioral skills through real-time interactions with the environment. We call such a robot a developmental robot. In this paper, we present the theory and the architecture to implement a developmental robot and discuss the related techniques that address an array of challenging technical issues. As an application, experimental results on a real robot, self-organizing, autonomous, incremental learner (SAIL), are presented with emphasis on its audition perception and audition-related action generation.

Hand Gestures Linked To Better Speaking, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: Can't find the right word? You might want to start moving your hands. New research at the University of Alberta suggests that gesturing while you talk may improve your access to language. (...) observed the hand gestures of bilingual children as they told the same story twice, first in one language and then the other. (...) "The children used gestures a lot more when telling the story in what they considered to be their stronger language. (...) These results seemed counter-intuitive to us. We thought the children would be more inclined to use gestures to help them communicate in their weaker language." (...)
Marketing a Disease, and Also a Drug to Treat It, NY Times
Excerpts: Avanir hopes that a drug will win federal approval to treat uncontrollable laughing or crying. (...) So Avanir has recruited neurologists and psychiatrists as scientific advisers and is trying to prime the market by elevating an ill-defined group of symptoms into a condition under the name pseudobulbar affect, or PBA, (...).
Gerald J. Yakatan, the company's chief executive, compares the effort to the way drug companies helped make erectile dysfunction and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder into well-known terms. "Before there were drugs, these conditions didn't exist," (...).
Enhancement Of Cellular Memory, Nature
Excerpts: On induction of cell differentiation, distinct cell phenotypes are encoded by complex genetic network. These networks can prevent the reversion of established phenotypes even in the presence of significant fluctuations. Here we explore the key parameters that determine the stability of cellular memory by using the yeast galactose-signalling network as a model system. This network contains multiple nested feedback loops.
Of the two positive feedback loops, only the loop (...) is able to generate two stable expression states with a persistent memory of previous galactose consumption states.
Catalytic Reaction Zaps Bacteria, Nature
Excerpts: Hospitals could benefit from a tube that vaporizes microbes
Gay Men Are Found to Have Different Scent of Attraction, NY Times
Excerpts: Using a brain imaging technique, Swedish researchers have shown that homosexual and heterosexual men respond differently to two odors that may be involved in sexual arousal, and that the gay men respond in the same way as women.
The new research may open the way to studying human pheromones, as well as the biological basis of sexual preference. Pheromones, chemicals emitted by one individual to evoke some behavior in another of the same species, are known to govern sexual activity in animals, but experts differ as to what role, if any, they play in making humans sexually attractive to one another.
The Line Between Life and Death, NY Times
Abstract: Op-Ed article by Gary Kalkut and Nancy Neveloff Dubler says there is fundamental misunderstading of death as defined by laws of all 50 states; says death occurs when either heart or brain irreversibly ceases to function; says advanced medical technology can support organs, but not life; says brain death should not be confused with persistent vegetative state or coma; says 13-year-old boy who died at Montefiore Medical Center, where they work, was not in coma or persistent vegetative state; regrets decision by his family to take hospital to court over continued use of respirator, since boy had died week before he was taken off mechanical support; drawing (M)
How Exactly Does The Brain Control Breathing?, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: An understanding of exactly how the brain controls breathing is fundamental to the treatment of respiratory disorders. We know that breathing is an automatic rhythmic process that persists without conscious effort whether we are awake or asleep, but the question that has intrigued many scientists for well over 100 years is what maintains this almost fail safe vital rhythm throughout life? (...) agree that the respiratory rhythm requires specialised nerve cells (central chemoreceptors) to power the rhythm, but the issue highly debated by Guyenet and Richerson is the precise location and cell types involved.

Learning To Listen - How Some Vertebrates Evolved Biological Sonar, Science News
Excerpts: The aggressor swoops low over the treetops, piercing the night with a barrage of sonar pulses and searching for telltale data bouncing back. Some prospective targets perceive the ultrasound, take evasive action, and escape. Others, the unwary ones, are fair game. When the prowling aerialist senses the faint echoes bouncing off one of these prey, he turns toward the target, quickens his chirp rate, and homes in for the kill.
Homing Pigeons are Forgetful Too, Science Now
Excerpts: If it makes you feel any better, humans aren't the only animals that forget things. Researchers have found that homing pigeons do the same. The new findings, they add, suggest an underlying continuity across the human and animal world in how the brain works.
The knack of remembering and forgetting is the brain's way of filtering information to manage its limited storage capacity. For example, you briefly store information about trees and cars around you in your working memory, but if someone tells you to focus on a speeding truck, your brain uses a process called executive control to remember that object longer. Meanwhile, you forget the others. In humans, this filtering is performed by the prefrontal cortex.
Waggle Dance Leads Bees To Nectar, BBC
Radar has helped resolve a long-standing controversy about the purpose of a strange dance performed by bees, Nature magazine reports.
The famous "waggle" dance contains information about the whereabouts of nectar, just as was originally proposed in the 1960s, scientists now claim.
The theory met with scepticism, partly because people did not believe bees could decode such a complex message.
But now radar tracking has proved they do follow waggle dance instructions.
US Robot Builds Copies Of Itself, BBC
US researchers have devised a simple robot that can make copies of itself from spare parts.
Writing in Nature, the robot's creators say their experiment shows the ability to reproduce is not unique to biology.
Their long-term plan is to design robots made from hundreds or thousands of identical basic modules.
These could repair themselves if parts fail, reconfigure themselves to better perform the task they have been set, or even to make extra helpers.
So far, the robots, if they can be called that, consist of just three or four mobile cubes.

Nonlinear Elasticity In Biological Gels, Nature
Excerpts: The mechanical properties of soft biological tissues are essential to their physiological function and cannot easily be duplicated by synthetic materials. Unlike simple polymer gels, many biological materials-including blood vessels, mesentery tissue, lung parenchyma, cornea and blood clots(...)-stiffen as they are strained, thereby preventing large deformations that could threaten tissue integrity. The molecular structures and design principles responsible for this nonlinear elasticity are unknown. Here we report a molecular theory (...) that reveals universal stress_strain relations at low to intermediate strains.
Early African Migrants Made Eastward Exit, Nature
Excerpts: Travellers hugged the coast as they wandered the world. The first modern humans to emigrate from Africa may have done so by sticking to the coast.
The Origin Of Bursts And Heavy Tails In Human Dynamics, Nature
Excerpts: (...) turning the quantitative understanding of human behaviour into a central question of modern science. Current models of human dynamics, (...), assume that human actions are randomly distributed in time (...). In contrast, there is increasing evidence that the timing of many human activities, ranging from communication to entertainment and work patterns, follow non-Poisson statistics, characterized by bursts of rapidly occurring events separated by long periods of inactivity. Here I show that the bursty nature of human behaviour is a consequence of a decision-based queuing process: (...).
A Web of Sensors, Taking Earth's Pulse, NY Times
Excerpts: In the wilds of the San Jacinto Mountains, along a steep canyon, scientists are turning 30 acres of pines and hardwoods in California into a futuristic vision of environmental study. ... They are linking up more than 100 tiny sensors, robots, cameras and computers, which are beginning to paint an...
Pathogen Adaptation To Seasonal Forcing And Climate Change, Proc. Biol. Sc.
Excerpt: Many diverse infectious diseases exhibit seasonal dynamics. Seasonality in disease incidence has been attributed to seasonal changes in pathogen transmission rates, resulting from fluctuations in extrinsic climate factors. Multi-strain infectious diseases with strain-specific seasonal signatures, such as cholera, indicate that a range of seasonal patterns in transmission rates is possible in identical environments. We therefore consider pathogens capable of evolving their 'seasonal phenotype', a trait that determines the sensitivity of their transmission rates to environmental variability. We introduce a theoretical framework, based on adaptive dynamics, for predicting the evolution of disease dynamics in seasonal environments. (...)
Causes And Consequences Of Animal Dispersal Strategies: Relating Individual Behaviour To Spatial Dynamics, Biol. Rev.
Excerpts: Knowledge of the ecological and evolutionary causes of dispersal can be crucial in understanding the behaviour of spatially structured populations, and predicting how species respond to environmental change. (...), simplistic assumptions regarding the dispersal process are still made. Dispersal is usually regarded as an unconditional process although in many cases fitness gains of dispersal are dependent on environmental factors and individual state. Condition-dependent dispersal strategies will often be superior to unconditional, fixed strategies. In addition, dispersal is often collapsed into a single parameter, despite it being a process composed of three interdependent stages: emigration, inter-patch movement and immigration, (...).
Cliff Quivers Warn Of Collapse, Nature
Excerpts: Tiny tremors can signal a collapsing cliff at least two hours before the rocks start to tumble, (...).
The team spotted seismic signals in one seaside cliff before it collapsed, and say the same technique should work on other unstable pieces of land. The research, (...), has persuaded the French government to consider installing early-warning systems in other vulnerable sites, (...).
There is special concern about cliff collapse in France simply because many of its coastal towns are built along the clifftops, says Mortimore.
Editor's Note: This might be an example of "critical fluctuations" a signature of second orde phase transitions or bifurcations?
Information Propagation, Nature
Excerpts: The transmission of force through granular matter such as sand is a crucial consideration in certain applications. The behaviour observed depends on the particle interactions as well as on the length scale involved.
How is information propagated through granular matter? This is an essential question for researchers investigating the stability of buildings, silos and slopes - particularly for predicting failure and avalanches. Does propagation occur through specific ('easy') paths or along a wide front? Is the mechanism similar to that of sound- or light-wave propagation? Is it elastic, or entirely different?
Before the Flood, NY Times
Excerpts: Op-Ed article by Sujatha Byravan and Sudhir Chella Rajan says one consequence of global warming will be rising seas; says this will generate surge of 'climate exiles' flooded out of their homes, from poor countries that are not responsible for most of greenhouse gas emissions changing the climate; says fairest way to deal with this wave of immigrants is to allow phased immigration of people living in vulnerable regions according to formula tied to host country's cumulative contributions to global warming; says under this formula United States, top cumulative emitter, would absorb 21 percent of climate-change exiles a year, meaning 150,000 to half-million immigrants a year for next 70 years (M)

Issue in China: Labor Camps That Operate Outside the Courts, NY Times
Abstract: China is being pressured to abolish or change its vast system of re-education camps that operate outside court system; estimated 300,000 prostitutes, drug users, petty criminals, members of Falun Gong and other political prisoners have been stripped of any legal rights and locked inside vast penal system that is separate from judicial system; system, relic of Mao era, is major tool Communist Party uses to maintain hold on power and social order; it allows police to sweep up masses of people without time and complications of court trials; China is facing pressure at home and abroad to change; key members of European Union express reluctance to lift arms embargo without significant gesture by China on human rights; outside China, Falun Gong is waging aggressive campaign to pubilcize its allegations of mistreatment, which Chinese government denies; history of labor re-education camps detailed; photo; map (M)
'Don't Outsource North Korea Problem to China', The Korea Times
Excerpts: North Korea has shut down its nuclear reactor in Yongbyon to raise the stakes in its nuclear standoff with the United States. (...).
Despite Pyongyang's clear efforts to increase its nuclear capability, the Bush administration is still refusing to discuss the issue bilaterally with North Korea. Instead, Washington is relying on Beijing to pressure Pyongyang into returning to the six-party talks, which have been stalled for almost one year. This strategy is unlikely to resolve the crisis, and it also risks alienating U.S. allies and marginalizing Washington in the region.
Complex Challenges: Global Terroist Networks
Excerpts: There is a new political campaign emerging amid the "Blair must go" grumblings of Britain's newly re-elected Labor Members of Parliament that could have far more weighty consequences than the departure of the lame duck prime minister. The new cause is based on the curious fact that Blair's party won 55 percent of the seats in the House of Commons with only 36 percent of the national vote.
The Conservative Party, for example, is outraged that they won more votes than Labor in England, 8, 066,000 to 8,028,000, but won 92 fewer English seats.
One Standard For Terrorists, NY Times
Excerpts: In the name of credibility, consistency and justice for the 73 victims, Luis Posada Carriles, the prime suspect in the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner, should not be granted political asylum in the United States, which he is thought to have entered illegally six weeks ago. Instead, he should be arrested and extradited for trial, not only for the airliner attack, but also for other terrorist attacks that he has acknowledged planning, including one in 1997 that killed an Italian businessman visiting Havana.
A Single Standard for Terrorists, NY Times
Excerpts: Editorial says Pres Bush should not grant political asylum to Luis Posada Carriles, prime suspect in 1976 bombing of Cuban airliner, even though he risks retribution at polls from ferociously anti-Castro Cuban-American community; says Washington would offend American principles and set extremely damaging precedent by making special exception for admitted terrorist
Row of Loosely Guarded Targets Lies Just Outside New York City, NY Times
Excerpts: (...) trying to safeguard more than 100 potential terrorist targets in two miles surrounded by residential communities, industrial areas and commuter corridors has proved daunting challenge for federal, state and local officials; job is bogged down by lack of funds; many security experts complain that formula for distributing tens of billions of dollars to state and local governments for anti-terrorism security is guided more by politics than by likelihood of attack; note that Montana gets three times as much money per capita as New Jersey; (...)
Chemical Time Bombs, NY Times
Excerpts: Editorial in series An Insecure Nation says small stretch of northern New Jersey with many chemical plants and considered inviting terrorist target is only loosely guarded; says Sen Jon Corzine's persistent efforts to upgrade security at chemical plants is being thwarted by chemical indudtry, which fears added costs, and Bush administration, which is reluctant to impose rules on private industry; says there may be room for compromise in new bill
Terrorism, Social Movements, And International Security: How Al Qaeda Affects Southeast Asia, Japanese J. Polit. Sc.
Excerpt: This paper argues that international security studies can most profitably engage the issue of international terrorism by considering terrorist groups as transnational social movement organizations. It takes as its case Al Qaeda's role in Southeast Asia, focusing especially on the efforts of Al Qaeda leaders (...). In so doing, the paper builds on the often-neglected literature on the politics of terrorism while tying the argument to prevailing debates over social movements. The paper thus aims at clarifying the ways in which Southeast Asian organizations have adopted Al Qaeda's tactics and language but appear to be addressing primarily local or provincial concerns. (...).
