And he wouldn't have it any other way.

To the naked eye, the white puffs of cotton growing on shrubs, the yellow flowers on canola plants and the towering tassels on cornstalks look just like those on any other plants. But inside their cells, where their DNA contains instructions for how these crops should grow, there are a few genes that were put there not by Mother Nature but by scientists in a lab. Some of the genes are from a soil bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis that makes proteins lethal to flies, moths and other insects.

The University of Oregon will be forced to decide whether to leave the Pacific 10 Conference unless the state helps cover its athletic department deficit, the school's president says. University President Myles Brand said Thursday it would be better for Oregon to drop intercollegiate athletics than join a less prestigious conference. He said Oregon's membership in the Pac-10 is "the most important affiliation we have as an academic institution."

History may be written by the victors, but Alexander Hamilton became a victor by writing history. He died at the hands of lifelong rival Aaron Burr in a famous duel, yet posterity has been kinder to Hamilton because of the power of his pen. During his lifetime, Hamilton couldn't stop Burr from eclipsing him politically - Burr became vice president and invented the Democratic Party , while Hamilton's career died with George Washington. But with years of letters impugning Burr's motives and morals, Hamilton was able to sway enough opinions to deny Burr a second term as vice president and the governorship of New York.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Pity the lowly public toilet, a redolent reminder of the failure of the best minds in urban planning to address the most fundamental of daily necessities. Millions have been invested in the facilities for collective relief. Often, they have become targets for graffiti, trash-can fires, furtive needle activity, commercial lovemaking, emergency baths, laundries for the homeless, and repositories of castoff diapers. Go to any city in America and ask whether it has fixed the public toilet problem, and most any city in America will hold its nose.
