    President Barack Obama is seeking to end federal funding for a pro-life program installed during the administration of President George W. Bush that helped save unborn babies potentially slated for destruction in fertility clinics. The “snowflake baby” program provided funding for adoption-awareness programs for the children who were formerly stored human embryos at fertility clinics who could have been destroyed for scientific research. Congressman Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, was one of the strong proponents of the pro-life program, saying, “Assertions that leftover embryos are better off dead so that their stem cells can be derived is dehumanizing and...

    As snow blizzards sweep across the country you may be forgiven for wanting to see the back of this Arctic winter. But for scientist Kenneth Libbrecht the prospect of sub zero temperatures, snow blizzards and Arctic winds is music to his ears. Using a specially designed photo-microscope Kenneth, a Professor of Physics at the California Institute of Technology, spent the last 11 years catching and photographing tiny snowflakes. Showcased in his latest book, “Snowflakes” these amazingly detailed images show the unique crystal formation of snowflakes. “When I first began toying with the idea of writing a book about snowflakes,...

May the fire of our devotion light their way. May the footprints that we leave, lead them to believe. And the lives we live inspire them to obey. Oh, may all who come behind us find us faithful. Tony Snow left faithful footprints and a fire of devotion that obviously lit the way for many of his colleagues. I didn’t get word of Tony’s passing until almost 9:30am on Saturday...

During his year-and-a-half-long tenure with the Bush administration, The New York Times congratulated Snow for "reinventing the job with his snappy sound bites and knack for deflecting tough questions with a smile." Snow even won plaudits from Daily Show host Jon Stewart, who told...

Now cancer lesions have spread to his liver and Tony Snow is once again facing a painful struggle to defeat the disease. But if anyone can beat the beast down, it's Snow. He is a courageous guy....

    The old adage that "no two snowflakes are alike" might not hold true, at least for smaller crystals, new research suggests. Snowflakes are created when snow crystals stick together. Some contain several hundred crystals [images]. Scientists investigate how snowflakes form because of the possible influence they may have on global climate. In addition, researchers now believe ice crystals in the atmosphere, which typically are snow crystals too small to fall to the ground, play a key role in ozone depletion, possibly by acting as a catalyst to break down ozone. Ice crystals in the atmosphere are also believed to influence...

By Deroy Murdock Just 14 months old, fraternal twins EmmaLyn and Ian Burnett are oblivious to the embryonic stem-cell research (ESCR) controversy dominating their home state of Missouri. It’s too bad they are too young to respond to actor Michael J. Fox’s TV commercials endorsing Democratic Senate candidates Claire McCaskill in the Show-Me State and Ben Cardin in Maryland. If EmmaLyn and Ian could speak, they might help Fox and other Americans understand how ESCR literally kills living...

    Defying the will of Congress (remember these votes in November!), President Bush sent a veto message (read the president's message here), that he would not sign HR 810, the "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005." President Bush addressed the situation in Lebanon while meeting with members of Congress in the White House. Secretary of State Rice met at the State Department today: New Zealand's Minister of Foreign Affairs Winston Peres, and Belgium's Foreign Minister Karel De Gucht. Next week she is scheduled to attend Southeast Asia's top security forum.

    For the first time, it's now known how many frozen human embryos created for infertility treatments are being stored in the United States -- 400,000, twice as high as previous estimates. Researchers with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology found that most are designated for further fertility treatments, though it's doubtful that all 349,830 embryos with this designation will be used for that purpose. Many of the embryos will not survive the thawing process but, as the number of "leftovers" left in freezers continues to rise, there are calls to minimize embryo production, put limits on storage time, and to...
