    You never know what you'll find next to a Dumpster. That's where Chris Gulley of Rock Island spotted two authentic Cherner chairs, designed in 1958 by Norman Cherner and manufactured by the former Plycraft Inc. of Lawrence, Mass. Gulley didn't know that immediately, though, on that day about 11 years ago when he was driving down Harrison Street in Davenport. All he knew is that the two chairs he saw sitting next to a Dumpster in an alley were very unusual-looking and that he wanted them. "I knew instantly they were special, and I about killed us both turning the...

    Forty million Americans have end-stage kidney disease, or ESKD. About 500,000 of them are in the terminal stage, as are 5,000 Israelis. African- and Hispanic Americans have a double-to-quadruple risk for the fatal disorder, compared to Caucasians of European origin. Now an Israeli research team has discovered new genetic data on a DNA region that could predict who will develop the disease, and eventually help millions of people of African ancestry, The Jerusalem Post has learned. So far, the only ways to prolong their lives are undergoing dialysis a few times a week or getting a kidney transplant. The team,...

    Researchers are racing to find the first planet that might support life as we know it.Gliese 876 is a modest star, just one-third the mass of our sun and only 15 light-years away, but it has a history-making planetary system all its own. In 1998 a team led by Geoff Marcy of the University of California at Berkeley detected the first sign of something interesting there: a giant planet, twice the mass of Jupiter, circling Gliese 876 once every two months, its gravity yanking the star back and forth at the speed of a jet plane. Three years later the...

    BAGHDAD Iraqis in the countrys north, fed up with ongoing violence, are leading U.S. and Iraqi forces to some of the largest weapons and bombs caches found in the region to date, the commander of Multi-National Division-North told Pentagon reporters Friday. This comes as U.S. troops in that area are handing off most counterinsurgency missions to Iraqi forces. This allows U.S. forces to focus on killing or capturing those who finance, make and emplace IEDs, said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Benjamin Mixon, commander of MND-N and the 25th Infantry Division. So far this year, his forces have nearly doubled...
