Sections Skip to content Skip to site index A scientist’s unfettered curiosity leads him to investigate the physics at work in some very odd corners of the natural world. David Hu is an associate professor of mechanical engineering and biology at Georgia Tech, where he studies the biomechanics of animal locomotion, like the slithering of snakes or the flicking of frog tongues. Credit Credit Melissa Golden for The New York Times Supported by ByJames Gorman Nov. 5, 2018 David Hu was changing his infant son’s diaper when he got the idea for a study that eventually won him the Ig Nobel prize. No, not the Nobel Prize — the Ig Nobel prize, which bills itself as a reward for “achievements that make people laugh, then think.” As male infants will do, his son urinated all over the front of Dr. Hu’s shirt, for a full 21 seconds.

In March 2017, a little-known Democratic congressman named Beto O’Rourke proposed something unusual to Will Hurd, a Republican colleague from a neighboring district: that they rent a car and embark on a 24-hour, 1,600-mile road trip from San Antonio to Washington. Their live-streamed odyssey wound up attracting blushing news coverage and evoking the bipartisan companionship of a bygone era.

For O’Rourke, the demonstration was less likely; he had done little to distinguish himself in the House of Representatives, and what reputation he owned was not that of a centrist. He won his congressional seat in 2012 by running to the left of an incumbent Democrat—a moderate Hispanic who warned voters of the El Paso councilman’s ultra-progressive policies—and spent the ensuing years compiling a … [Read more...] about Did Beto Blow It?
The death of a notorious Boston gangster who killed in a federal prison in West Virginia is being investigated as a homicide, authorities announced Wednesday. Officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office and FBI said no further details about James "Whitey" Bulger's death would be released at this time "to protect the integrity of the investigation." While multiple senior law enforcement officials tell NBC News authorities are investigating whether Bulger was beaten to death by another inmate or inmates, a former federal investigator told The Associated Press a Mafia hit man is a suspect in the prison slaying. The official told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Fotios "Freddy" Geas and at least one other inmate are believed to have been involved in 89-year-old's killing. The longtime investigator spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the case. Geas was convicted in the 2003 killing of western Massachusetts mobster Adolfo Bruno. Bulger was a … [Read more...] about Mafia Hit Man Is Suspect in Death of Whitey Bulger, Source Says
