    Antarctica, the coldest place on Earth, teems with microscopic life. Tiny organisms dwell on the ice and live inside glaciers, and now, researchers confirm, a rich microbial ecosystem persists underneath the thick ice sheet, where no sunlight has been felt for millions of years. Nearly 4,000 species of microbes inhabit Lake Whillans, which lies beneath 2,625 feet (800 meters) of ice in West Antarctica, researchers report today (Aug. 20) in the journal Nature. These are the first organisms ever retrieved from a subglacial Antarctic lake. "We found not just that things are alive, but that there's an active ecosystem," said...

    Alabama's 2013 recruiting class was wrapped up earlier this month, but for Nick Saban it's never too early to start the process of lining up recruits for Alabama's 2017 class. The Crimson Tide hosted a junior day over the weekend, and one of the players who showed up was Dylan Moses out of Baton Rouge, La. Though Moses is not a junior in high school. He's not even in high school yet, but that didn't stop the eighth-grader from picking up a scholarship offer. [Snip] What makes this all a bit crazier is that Alabama isn't even Dylan's first...

    There is a problem with the Bowl Championship Series, but it’s not the one you probably think. College football doesn’t need a playoff. A traditional playoff system – an eight-team or even four-team bracket – brings nothing in the way of advantages over the current system and probably would make things considerably worse. Don’t tell me the traditional architecture for playoffs is the only – or even most – accurate way to determine a champion. The St. Louis Cardinals just won the World Series under that system despite having fewer wins in the regular season than any other team that...

The course description says the class is about "fundamental principles of the solar system," but on this particular day the topic was U.S. policy on global warming.

If they did not, then the proportion of students failing courses would increase to intolerable levels. This prediction was correct. As proof, I offer you the story of Dominique Homberger, who tried teaching Biology 1001, “a large introductory course for nonscience majors at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge.” A lot of kids flunked her first exam. And then a lot failed her second exam. In the end, about one out five students dropped out...
