UCLA chemistry professor Patrick Harran has been ordered Friday to stand trial on felony charges stemming from a laboratory fire that killed staff research assistant Sheharbano “Sheri” Sangji more than four years ago. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lisa Lench denied a defense motion to dismiss the case, which is believed to be the first such prosecution involving a U.S. academic lab accident. Harran is charged with willfully violating state occupational health and safety codes and faces up to 4 1/2 years in prison if convicted.

The world's largest natural products convention, a celebration of all things healthy and eco-friendly, was being held at the Anaheim Convention Center Saturday when F. Sherwood Rowland, 84, died at his home in Corona del Mar. It's not much of a stretch to say that Rowland, 84, helped spawn the industry that drew more than 60,000 people and 2,000 exhibitors. In 1973, the UC Irvine chemistry professor and a young researcher on his team, Mario Molina, discovered that manmade chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons destroyed the Earth's fragile and vital ozone layer.

It's getting tough for the rich. Just ridiculous. They can't buy love, and now it seems, chemistry. Hope they're still able to nab a swimsuit model. I mean, there has to be some perks beyond being first in line for a Tesla. Perhaps by now you've heard that pithy little comment from Giants first baseman Brandon Belt on the Dodgers' free-spending binge: “All I can say is,” he told Comcast's Andrew Baggarly, “you can't buy chemistry.” Suppose not, though I understand the Smithsonian Mega Science Lab makes for a mean chemistry starter set. Now there is chemistry that turns Peter Parker into a web crawler, chemistry that makes the opposing sex go weak in the knees, and presumably, the kind that brings teams together so they can go out and conquer the sporting world.

Sweet and sought after, young Hollywood stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are speaking out about their chemistry - onscreen, that is, in "The Amazing Spider-Man . " While the two keep a low profile in their personal relationship (sparked last June), the actors bring some theatrical heat as lovebirds Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker. "We got on really well as people, in between [takes]," Garfield told MTV News. "That was the fun stuff. In between, we'd just mess around, and I felt, 'Ah, this is different.'" Garfield expressed relief that Stone decided to take the role, saying that his scenes with the "Crazy Stupid Love" actress were his favorite to shoot (watch the interview below)

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt's comments about the big-spending Dodgers hit Matt Kemp's radar. "All I can say is, you can't buy chemistry," Belt said at his team's FanFest earlier this month. Kemp was puzzled as to why Belt would say anything. "If I was a World Series champ, I wouldn't be saying anything about anybody's team, you know what I'm saying?" Kemp said Friday. "I don't have to say anything, I'm a World Series champ. "I think we all saw those quotes.
