    Fans of soul music revivalists such as Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings will want to check out this debut album by Alabama Shakes. This Athens, Ala., quartet hones its soulful rock even further back to basics than most similar modern performers, all the way down to the barest organic essentials. "Boys & Girls" contains no blaring horns, orchestrations or electronic tricks, just Heath Fogg's prominent guitar riffs, an airtight rhythm section, Brittany Howard's vocal pyrotechnics and an abiding love of the Stax/Volt Memphis sound of the 1960s. "Hold On" showcases the band's strengths, using its small-combo punch to full...

Each side can see the world through the other's eyes. That’s what we should be encouraging."

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Scientists fretted Friday that a spectacular cloning fraud that hid in plain sight has set back legitimate stem cell work around the world. Cloning experts and stem cell scientists said research in the potentially revolutionary field of regenerative medicine will continue unabated. But they said public confidence in their work had been weakened by a sham branded by experts as the most visible case of scientific fraud they could recall.
