The Center for PostNatural History is a small museum with an eclectic and bizarre mix of specimens: you will find a rib-less mouse embryo, sterile male screwworm, a sample of E. coli x1776 (a specimen designed to be harmless and unable to survive outside the laboratory), and a stuffed transgenic BioSteel goat named Freckles, genetically modified to produce spider silk proteins in her … [Read more...] about Why the ‘post-natural’ age could be strange and beautiful

Steven Marrocco MMA Junkie Published 7:39 PM EDT Apr 19, 2019 UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn's legal issues aren't limited to a restraining order and custody battle. A public records request revealed Penn also is under an active police investigation after he allegedly threatened a taro farmer with a machete in a dispute over trespassing. In January 2018, police released an all-points bulletin stating that Penn, 40, was wanted by police. Penn was accused of first-degree terroristic threatening, a Class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Sergeant Jason Grouns of the Hawaii Police Department on Thursday told MMA Junkie the case remains active 15 months after the alleged incident because "all parties involved have not been located (or) contacted yet, and it cannot be routed to the prosecutors until complete." Penn family attorney Gary Levitt expressed shock when contacted by MMA Junkie about the allegation, which was reported Jan. 19, 2018. He said … [Read more...] about UFC: B.J.

Cody Goodwin USA TODAY Published 5:05 PM EDT Mar 20, 2019 One of the best ways to measure Penn State’s recent run of wrestling success is to look at the walls inside the Joyner Wrestling Room. Pictures hang for every national champion wrestler. Howard Johnston was the first, winning at 165 pounds in 1935. Joe Lemyre joined him 17 years later at 167 pounds. Through the 2009-10 season, 18 Nittany Lion wrestlers won a combined 21 national titles. Lately, though, the amount of wall space has shrunk considerably. Since the 2010-11 campaign, 11 Penn State wrestlers have combined to win 20 more national titles. Each addition to the wall makes Penn State wrestling that much more daunting on the recruiting trail. “They show recruits and kids who are trying to figure out where they want to go to school, that if you go to Penn State, this is a place where you can get better,” Penn State coach Cael Sanderson told local reporters this week. “If you’re … [Read more...] about How Penn State wrestling became the the greatest sports dynasty going

MurphyOUP, pp.460, £25 The ultimate driving force of William Penn’s adult life is inaccessible, as the Quaker phrase ‘Inner Light’ suggests. While a young man administering the family estates in Ireland, Penn experienced ‘convincement’, another Quaker term for what other Dissenters called conversion. But while these experiences were inward and personal, they had public consequences. Since they were potentially available to anyone, they brought in their wake a tendency towards egalitarianism, manifested in plain speaking, pacifism, and a refusal to swear oaths or doff one’s hat. These outward manifestations of private experience inevitably caused ructions in the hierarchical social structure of 17th-century England. Ironically, Penn’s position in that hierarchy would have … [Read more...] about Should William Penn be shaking in his grave?
