NY Times:

Uranium Ignites ‘Gold Rush’ in the West.  Oh, great.  Let’s hope our government enforces a no-discharge policy for water, reburial of radioactive tailings, and recovery of the mine sites.

Later: Reuters India, Lack of fuel may limit U.S. nuclear renaissance.  Sounds like wishful thinking, to me.  Sorry kiddies, there’s still lots of it in the Western US.  A particularly large deposit just west of Albuquerque, which I’ve written about previously.

Sons born to women who ate a lot of beef during their pregnancy have a 25 percent below-normal sperm count and three times the normal risk of fertility problems, researchers reported Tuesday.”  So, cattle supplements finally show an effect.  Go for organic, don’t switch for the complications of phytoestrogens in soy.

Space Navigator. Since I use form•z, this interests me quite a bit.  I remember the old TDI interface, an external plug-in panel with six dials.  One could loft a 3D model much faster than with Alias’ mouse-based interface of the time.  Can’t wait to order one, next 3D job that comes my way. Thanks, Volker.

Online ugliness.  “If people’s full names were required—even though some might resort to aliases—it would go a long way toward cleaning up the neighborhood.”  This is what happens when new-to-weblogging journalists make recommendations.  One must register with a full name and valid email address.  Just a name isn’t enough.
