The real issue at hand never was collusion. That was one of many portals that continue to be explored into the essential unsuitability, incompetence and dishonesty of a man who was elected president of the United States.
Dr. Paul Talalay, a noted molecular pharmacologist who headed a Johns Hopkins School of Medicine research team that found a chemical in broccoli that boosted the cancer-fighting abilities of humans and animal cells, died Sunday of heart failure at his Roland Park home. He was 95.
In a far-ranging talk Wednesday on space, physics and the origin of all that is, Nobel Prize-winning scientist John Mather went from the very old and incredible small, to the infinite, and nearly back again.
Last week, as my colleagues and I celebrated the Nobel Prize recognition for Kyoto University immunologist Tasuku Honjo — who was a postdoctoral fellow at the Carnegie Institution for Science’s Department of Embryology, where I work — I reflected on how science takes time to bear to bear fruit.
The Westminster Astronomical Society will be hosting a special guest at its Oct. 10 club meeting — John Mather, a senior astrophysicist at the Observational Cosmology Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and senior project scientist for NASA’s James Webb space telescope.
Do you remember the future when you were a kid? The one that couldn’t come soon enough? We looked forward to the next space flight, the next scientific discovery. We heard about meals instantly cooked by sound waves, TV wrist watches, robots that vacuumed the floor, cars that steered themselves.
Leaders of our country, Republican and Democrat alike, who demand that the United States accept nothing less from North Korean President Kim Jong-un than his country’s unilateral denuclearization, should consider what gives America – or any country — a right to have these weapons.
Goldberg: One of the things about today's immigration debate that breaks my heart is how both sides have lost the plot. There are legitimate policy arguments on all sides, but the story of immigration is getting slaughtered in the crossfire.
Trump will kill the Mueller investigation before it renders a report. Removal by impeachment will never get two-thirds votes in the Senate for the foreseeable future. The only hope is conviction of his nibs of a significant felony. Trump and his son-in-law may have committed just such a felony.
Each of us plays a very special part in the world's spiritual evolution, though we may not be in the first 100. We are role models in every aspect of our lives. What we believe and the actions we take, teach our families, friends and observers. That could be a negative teaching or a positive.
Westminster resident Jim Arnett recently earned the prestigious Geri Award, an award given to a maximum of five newly inducted members of the Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame for “extraordinary humanitarian community service.”
The president's FY2018 budget predicts a bleak future for science in the United States. Without continued investment, opportunities for young researchers are stifled, innovation comes to a halt and collaborative opportunities are lost. If young scientists are prevented from pursuing research, they may never have the opportunity to pursue their ideas for discovery and invention, creating a chain reaction from which future generations are unable to recover.
The promise to end all wars 100 years ago seems to have transformed into a reality of wars that have no end, and Woodrow Wilson's present-day successor in the White House seems even less likely to make the world — or even our own land — safe for democracy.
Thank you, Gov. Larry Hogan, for appointing thoughtful, brave medical experts to Maryland's Children's Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC). Your next challenge is to get the Maryland school superintendents to heed the council's well-founded advice: reduce and restrict children's wireless radiation (wifi). With distinguished experts in child health, neurodevelopment and pediatrics, the council draws on the well-established public health principle that stopping harm now
