Using some plain old rubber strips, scientists have created a whole new shape -- a hemihelix, a long spiral that switches twisting directions over its length. The shape, described in the journal PLOS One, is rarely seen in nature - and could potentially prove useful for manipulating light on tiny scales. In a standard helix the spiral coils up and up in the same direction, like a stretched-out slinky, and it's a fairly common shape in the natural world, most notably in the double helix of DNA. But hemihelices?

"Helix," which begins Friday on Syfy, arrives under the flag of executive producer Ronald D. Moore, the re-creator of "Battlestar Galactica. " It's a step back for the network toward Moore's dark and deep drama from the semi-comical fantasies, C-movies and fairy-tale variations that have defined its slate of late; that is to say, it's a step forward. And if it doesn't match "Battlestar" for ambition or poetry or sparkling dialogue - to judge by the three hours available for review - it's well-made, solidly scary and disturbing all the same.

As the night wore on for Tory Winrow, third base didn't look so bad. This is football season, and Winrow found out he was a long way from spring, when he plays third base for defending San Diego Section 3-A champion Helix. Instead, Winrow received his indoctrination into football as Madison intercepted four of his passes, turning two into touchdowns, on the way to a 12-9 upset of the No. 3-ranked Highlanders. Winrow replaced projected starter Rob Ippolito, who has mononucleosis, two weeks ago.

Ray Dukes hit both ends of a one-and-one with 11 seconds remaining to give Helix a 53-49 lead, and the Highlanders held on for a 53-51 Grossmont 3-A League victory Tuesday at Helix. Mike Martin scored 13 points, and Brandon Sanders added 11 for Helix (9-6, 2-2). Shannon LeFever scored 19 points to lead Mt. Miguel (1-3, 11-7), which has lost three out of its past four games since point guard Domingo Rivera injured his thigh.

After the third game of the season, the Mount Miguel High School football team was in big trouble. Mount Miguel was 1-2 and in its victory, 6-0 over Bonita Vista, the Matadors had minus-two yards total offense. Mount Miguel's starting quarterback and leading rusher were injured, and it was showed. Quarterback Anthony Rivera was lost for six weeks before the season started when he suffered a shoulder separation and Anthony Williams was lost for the season with a broken arm.

A dormant Mount Miguel offense rose to the occasion by scoring all its points in the fourth quarter as the second-ranked Matadors rallied to defeat Helix 16-7 to win their second consecutive Grossmont League 3-A title in the final game of the regular season. Tenth-ranked Helix (7-2-1 overall, 3-1 in league play) dominated the first three quarters by keeping Mount Miguel's top-ranked defense off balance with a solid running and passing game.

If dethroning seven-time San Diego Section champion Oceanside two weeks ago was the highlight of the season for La Mesa Helix, then its 35-24 victory over Loomis Del Oro on Saturday in the CIF Division II state championship bowl game Saturday at the Home Depot Center was the icing on the cake. After losing their opener to Eastlake of Chula Vista, the Highlanders reeled off 13 consecutive victories, the last against a team whose only loss had been in overtime to Westlake Village Westlake, which represented Southern California in Saturday night's Open Division bowl game.

Troy Starr turns 50 in February. How quickly the years have gone by. He was a fiery 25-year-old assistant coach at Carson High in 1987 when the team was upset by Granada Hills in the City Section football championship game. In 1992, he became head coach at Woodland Hills Taft, taking over a program that had a 0-8-1 record the previous season. He lasted 14 seasons and built the Toreadors into a City Section power. He resigned in 2007 to become the director of football operations for Urban Meyer at the University of Florida.

The drama that surrounded Francis Crick and James Watson's 1953 unveiling of the structure of DNA is no secret ? Watson described the heated competition between two British research groups in his bestselling book, "The Double Helix. " But part of the record had been thought lost when Crick's papers were apparently thrown out by what he described as "an over-efficient secretary. " That nameless secretary has now been exonerated. Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York recently uncovered the long-lost letters mixed up with the papers of Sydney Brenner, Crick's officemate of more than two decades.

Odile Speed Crick, the bohemian painter of nudes whose most famous drawing was an illustration of DNA that appeared in a seminal paper by her husband, Francis Crick, and James Watson on its structure, died July 5 in La Jolla after a short illness. She was 86. Although the Crick household was filled with her paintings of curvaceous women, the artist subjugated her career to that of her husband, providing strength and support throughout their 55-year marriage.

Science and everyday life seem to converge more and more visibly these days. President Bush and Sen. John F. Kerry publicly debate the ethics of stem cell research in their quests for the presidency. The Supreme Court deliberates the constitutionality of executing juvenile offenders, taking into account MRI evidence that physiological differences in the brains of young people limit their impulse control and ability to forecast consequences. And a feature film -- "What the Bleep Do We Know?"

Elizabeth Blackburn didn't think the peculiar genetic structures she discovered as a young scientist would consume her career. But the 54-year-old molecular biologist's research on telomeres -- the ends of a chromosome -- is yielding promising clues in the fight against cancer and increasing our knowledge of the aging process. Telomeres are known to prevent the ends of DNA from fraying, like the plastic ends on shoelaces.
