  • Cryptic clams: Biologists find species hiding in plain view

    Cryptic comments seem to have an ambiguous, obscure or hidden meaning. In biology, cryptic species are outwardly indistinguishable groups whose differences are hidden inside their genes. Two University of Michigan marine biologists have identified three cryptic species of tiny clams, long believed to be members of the same species, which have been hiding in plain view along the rocky shores of southern Australia for millions of years. The unusual convergence of a climate-cooling event and the peculiarities of local geography caused the three cryptic species to split from a common ancestor more than 10 million years ago, the U-M researchers...
  • The Anti-Beer Libertarian/If she wins Nevada’s GOP primary, Sharron Angle will be painted as a nut

    By now it’s become a disturbingly familiar pattern for conservatives: A candidate who seems promising at first glance wins a Republican primary, and then suddenly the press — often fed by a Democratic rival’s opposition-research team — begins looking in-depth at every controversial and regrettable statement and act that candidate ever made. Just days after it’s too late to change the nominee, the choice of GOP primary voters appears to be an egregious mistake. The most recent, and perhaps most extreme, example of this phenomenon is Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul. Overnight, Paul changed from a soft-spoken, genially libertarian version...

  • Angle campaign working to quiet Scientology question

    Carson City — Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts. Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants. Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which...
  • Edgie Russell’s Clams

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 5 April 2010 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    It was 55 ½ years ago in August that Edgie Russell and I set out in a wooden rowboat to bring some clams home to our families. Bear with me, because this is going to be like Mark Twain’s story of his father’s ram. Edgie, you say. That’s a funny nickname. No, it’s a real name. My childhood friend was Thomas Edgie Russell, III. His great-grandfather’s life had been saved by a sea captain named Edgie, so the name came into the family in the next generation. His parents were friends with mine, and they lived up the street. So...

    Excerpts: "What we captured in 2001 was the loss of those mussels and implications for an entire ecosystem," said Brown University ecologist Andrew Altieri, who with biology professor Jon Witman wrote the study published in the March issue of Ecology. "That's instructive for what historic and future losses might be for the Chesapeake." Altieri calculated that the [mussel] reefs were processing the [Narragansett] bay's entire water volume once every 20 days, even though they covered less than 1 percent of the bay floor. Within days, a hypoxic episode triggered by warm weather, low wind and the usual nutrients contributed to...
  • Cruise keeps an eye on "fetus"

    Tom Cruise has already claimed to know the history of psychiatry. Now he's working on getting acquainted with OB/GYN. The couch-jumping thesp has acquired a sonogram machine with which to personally track the progress of the fetus currently incased in his fiancee Katie Holmes' womb. Cruise revealed the purchase during an interview with Barbara Walters taped Oct. 30 for the veteran newswoman's upcoming special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2005, scheduled to air Tuesday on ABC. "I bought a sonogram machine," Cruise told Walters. "I am going to donate it to a hospital when we are...

    Tom Cruise's end-zone dance on the Oprah show and his scolding of Matt Lauer may have startled viewers, but it surely came as no surprise to his fellow Scientologists. They had seen this side of Tom Cruise before. Last October, in a recorded speech simulcast live to Scientology audiences around the world, Cruise passionately exhorted Scientologists to promote church programs and the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. To those not fully committed, he hotly said: Step it up or get out! Don't ask permission to help others, he said. Just do it. As Scientologists, he said, you have a special...

    S. Korea: Millions of Clams Washed Ashore (beats Easter egg hunt)  On July 6th, at the Da-dae-po Beach, Pusan, residents flocked to pick up clams. The clams, which are known to usually live 10 meter underwater, unexpectedly turned up on the beach (during a low tide,) which is a rare occurrence.

    The controversial church, whose founder called shrinks "terrorists" and which labels mental illness a fraud, is closer than you think to implanting its extreme beliefs in the nation's laws and schools. It may be easy to dismiss Tom Cruise's recent outbursts against psychiatry as the ravings of an egomaniacal celebrity. Comedians have certainly had a field day with Cruise, a fervent disciple of the Church of Scientology, ever since he scolded Brooke Shields for taking prescribed medication to treat her postpartum depression and lectured Matt Lauer, host of the "Today" show, that psychiatry was a "pseudoscience" and antidepressant drugs were...

    Clams: They're Not Just For Chowder Anymore Source: Marine Biological Laboratory Date: 2004-08-27 New England's favorite summertime delicacy, the chowder clam, has just been elevated to a whole new status. An international team of scientists-who credit studying surf clam (Spisula solidissima) cells with important research breakthroughs in the study of diseases such as cancer, premature aging, and muscular dystrophy-has just convened at the Marine Biological Laboratory to begin sequencing some of the clam's active genes. The effort, called the Clam Project, is the first step toward sequencing the entire clam genome, and its goal is to provide scientists with better...
  • Hints About Razor Clamming

    CLAMS - Razor clams grow by the millions on surf-pounded beaches along the Washington coast. They're narrower than many species, and they can grow to be 6 inches long. GEAR - A special narrow-bladed clam shovel or a "clam gun," a modified metal or plastic tube used to haul up a core sample of sand - hopefully with a clam inside. Each digger needs a separate container for the clams. Rubber boots and rain gear are a good idea, along with a lantern if low tide is after dark. FINDING CLAMS - Look for "clam sign," a telltale dimple made...
  • Oregon Lawmakers OK Fee for Digging Clams

    Lawmakers give final approval to requiring shellfish license SALEM - A $5 annual license would be required for Oregonians to do sport harvesting of clams, crabs and other shellfish under a bill on its way to Gov. Ted Kulongoski. The House approved the Senate-passed Senate Bill 597 Tuesday. No license is currently needed to take shellfish. Nonresidents would pay $15 for a yearly license or $7.50 for a three-day permit. Analysts estimate license revenue would generate about $1 million in each two-year budget for various programs including protection and enhancement of shellfish stocks as well as enforcement of existing harvest...

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. JUNEAU, Alaska -- In an attempt to jump-start Alaska's tiny shellfish industry, state lawmakers are considering legislation that could more than double the number of shellfish farms. Two bills moving through the Alaska Legislature require the state Department of Natural Resources to identify 60 potential new sites for shellfish grown in suspended nets, which would be mostly oyster and some mussel farming. In addition, the agency would need to find 20 sites for clam farming and 10 sites for geoduck farming. The measures call for the Department of Natural Resources to...
