LOS ANGELES -- The President of the United States, a former ball player himself, has apparently grown tired of Lakers' inability to contend for the NBA title in recent years, and hence the lucrative deal.

Gay Marriage Legalized in New York

Sometime last week, New York became the sixth and most populous state in America to legalize gay marriage. The opposition(yes, all those church-goers) wept and screamed and shouted words-fit-for-infidels in their attempts to prevent this from happening.

A sweet victory for gays in New York, and I suspect gay couples from all corners of New York would flock to register themselves before the archbishops, pastors and church-runners of New York force Mayor Bloomberg to change his mind.

Developed Economy Generates More Jobs, Or Less?

Forgive my ignorance.

Evidently, the relationship between technological advancement and employment is complicated.

People have always said that a developed country equals to plenty of job opportunities. Because a developed economy requires a plethora of man power to feed its insatiable appetite for resources. China, for example, relies heavily upon her 1.3 billion underlings to run the coal-mining industry, agriculture and oil fields.

No-Fathers Day

The Mosuo (摩梭) culture of the Chinese Himalaya thrives in a matrilineal society, which means men don't playing any significant role in the family. Here, women head the households, make business decisions, and own property, which they pass on to their matrilineal heirs, very much like our own Adat Pepatih in Negeri Sembilan.

And most importantly, they shun marriage.
Yes. No marriage at all. So where do the kids come from?
I guess some of you may be processing your sordid imagination by now but no, there is no incest involved.

Saving 7 Million Tons of Juvenile Fish A Year

40% of the world's population relies on fish for food. But every year, 7 million tons of dead fish are tossed back into the ocean because they were too young (i.e., small) to be marketable, or simply because they weren't the species the fishermen were after.

David Watson, a student in the Innovation Design Engineering joint course between the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London, has designed SafetyNet to counter this problem.

How Fireflies Produce Their Glow?

The simplest answer would be bioluminescence. But that alone doesn't explain the mechanism and the rationale of exposing your whereabouts to potential predators at night.

Defining Our Mentality

How do we define a decent person?
I think a lot of us would suggestively say that a decent person would not be judged based on the outside, but how many of us actually judge a person based on the inside?

Cancer In Animals

Yes, animals do get cancer. I just got to know that by the way.

Prominent biologist and blogger Carl Zimmer wrote that the mere existence of the largest of all animals, the Blue Whale, suggests that it is possible to suppress cancer many-fold better than what is currently done in humans.

Blue whales can weigh over a thousand times more than a human being. That’s a lot of extra cells, and as those cells grow and divide, there’s a small chance that each one will mutate. A mutation can be harmless, or it can be the first step towards cancer. As the descendants of a precancerous cell continue to divide, they run a risk of taking a further step towards a full-blown tumor. To some extent, cancer is a lottery, and a 100-foot blue whale has a lot more tickets than we do.
