Resource-rich federal labs foster ingenuity, struggle with fledgling inventions
Topic: Technology 12:51 pm EDT, Aug 12, 2003

“The lab is the world’s biggest playground for technology,” said Northrup, who joined Lawrence Livermore in 1993 and left about three years later to start the biotech company Cepheid. He is now president and chief executive of the startup MicroFluidic Systems Inc. in Pleasanton, Calif. “I had access to incredible technology, multimillion-dollar equipment … all the things I would need to figure out the problem.”

Young offenders and victims of crime are often the same people
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:18 pm EDT, Aug 11, 2003

Being a victim of crime at the age of 12 is one of the most powerful indicators that a child will offend at 15. Likewise, offending at age 12 brings a strong possibility of victimisation at 15. One explanation of this link is that young offenders tend to group together and commit offences on each other. Another is that young people who get into risky situations together - such as late-night clubs or amusement arcades - end up both committing offences and being victims of crime. A third point is that personality traits such as being impulsive and taking risks lead both to offending and victimisation.

The Man Who Mistook his Girlfriend for a Robot
Topic: Technology 1:40 pm EDT, Aug 11, 2003

Four days, for the assembled journalists, of making sense of it all and banging out stories on the fly—and now comes word of what could be a light interlude: Keep an eye out for the guy carrying the head. Say what? The robotic human head. The press people for the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the conference's sponsor, say the demonstration's on for tomorrow morning.
