High School Student Who Punched His Principal in the Face Won ’t Go to Jail
(NEW YORK) — A New York City high schooler who punched his principal, leaving the administrator with two black eyes, will avoid jail time as long as he stays out of trouble for three years. The New York Post reports Saturday that 19-year-old Luis Penzo completed a family therapy program as part of his conditional discharge. Prosecutors say the confrontation occurred when a principal asked Penzo to turn down music blaring from his headphones last October. They say Penzo refused, then slugged his principal twice, leaving him with a cut that required seven stiches to close. Penzo was arrested and charged with assault. H...

NFL: Trump ’s Criticism of Players Shows an ‘Unfortunate Lack of Respect’
(HUNTSVILLE, Ala.) — President Donald Trump has some advice for National Football League owners: Fire players who kneel during the national anthem. He’s also encouraging fans to walk out in protest.And the president is bemoaning what he describes as a decline in violence in the sport. “They’re ruining the game,” he said during a political rally in Alabama on Friday night that veered beyond politics. Several athletes, including a handful of NFL players, have refused to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest of the treatment of blacks by police. Quarterback Colin Kaeperni...

NFL Owners Should Stand Up to Donald Trump on National Anthem Protests
With his threat at the United Nations this past week to “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary, and his labeling of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a “Rocket Man” on a “suicide mission,” President Donald Trump escalated his war of words with a country flirting with a nuclear strike. Few world leaders at the General Assembly cheered him. On Friday, Trump got his applause — by hurling his “tough” talk at America’s de facto national pastime, NFL football. At a rally in Huntsville, Ala., in support of Republican Senator Luther Strange, Trump cursed some of its ...

Lab notes: DNA editing, dearth of new antibiotics and knowing your mind
This week ’s top story brings hope for millions of those who are unable to conceive. British scientists haverevealed the role of ‘master gene’ in human embryo development. The study marks a first for the UK and could help uncover the cause of recurrent miscarriages and improve fertility treatments. Scientists used Crispr/Cas9 gene-editing tool to make precise cuts in DNA and deactivate a gene called OCT4. The study showed this gene is critical for the embryo to develop and the results could help produce more effective IVF treatment. Meanwhile,the WHO has warned over the paucity of new antibiotics.

Stimuli fading away en route to consciousness
(University of Bonn) Whether or not we consciously perceive the stimuli projected onto our retina is decided in our brain. A recent study by the University of Bonn shows how some signals dissipate along the processing path to conscious perception. This process begins at rather late stages of signal processing. By contrast, in earlier stages there is hardly any difference in the reaction of neurons to conscious and unconscious stimuli. The paper is published in Current Biology.
