Highly accurate method for modifying genes discovered

I want to pierce more on this, but man that science article is written like a press release.

Want to gauge how racist/sexist/whatever you are? Try participating in Harvard's Implicit Association study.

Hardly the be-all, end-all, but these are kind of neat. For black vs white, I actually put myself in as "slightly racist" since I've always been more attracted white girls than black ones, but apparently I showed no preference in testing.

Quote from: Monty
In 2010, there were 883,715 deaths from suicide around the world. That's more than war (17,670), natural disasters (196,018), and murder (456,268) combined.

technically speaking wouldn't 100% deaths by suicide be the final target

I don't think people actually want to rule away "natural causes" even though that usually means cancer or organ failure.

Man, I found that article to be excellent and I was kind of surprised there wasn't more talk about it. It was almost amazing how little real research had actually been done, and the bit where they explain the venn diagram of causal factors is nuts, especially where they talk about the third circle (habitual self-supression), which is a factor that has been almost totally overlooked (at least in the medical community?).
