Dr. Celedonio Fernando, a neurosurgeon from Glendora Community Hospital, testified Wednesday that one of Bill Shoemaker's fingers moved slightly about five hours after his accident. Fernando, one of seven doctors who are defendants in Shoemaker's $50-million malpractice lawsuit, also said in Los Angeles County Superior Court that he thought the first diagnostic X-rays of Shoemaker were inadequate. After looking at the X-rays, Fernando said that he requested more X-rays at 1 a.m.

X-rays on San Diego State outside linebackers Jack Eaton and Brett Faryniarz proved negative, so both are expected to start Saturday night against Colorado State. Eaton has a sprained finger and Faryniarz has a bruised hand. Defensive lineman Mike Stevens will likely play Saturday despite a sprained knee. Stevens is being moved from tackle to noseguard to replace Levi Esene, who suffered a dislocated elbow last Saturday against UCLA.

IBM researchers have used a new technique called X-ray lithography to manufacture the most densely packed integrated circuits yet produced. Denser circuits mean faster, more powerful and more economical computers. Integrated circuits are now made by coating silicon with a light-sensitive material called a "resist" and shining light on the resist through a template of the desired circuit pattern.

The world of high tech may be expanding at a fantastic rate, but the tools needed to continue that growth must be able to work in ever smaller places. Microchip manufacturers need lithographic equipment that can create much smaller--and thus faster--chips. Biomedical researchers need devices that can work on the smallest scale, even at the level of DNA.

The mummy a British Egyptologist says could be the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti is more likely a man, antiquities chief Zahi Hawass said in Cairo. Joann Fletcher, a mummification specialist from the University of York in England, said in June there was a "strong possibility" her team had unearthed Nefertiti from a Luxor tomb. But Hawass said, "I'm sure that this mummy is not a female." Among other things, he said, its hips were very narrow and Nefertiti gave birth six times.
