Carrie Partch was at the tail end of her postdoc when she made the first discovery. The structural biologist was looking at a database of human proteins, noting those that shared a piece with the ones she’d been studying. “I was just sort of flipping through it thinking, ‘I should know all of these,’” she recalls. “Then this one came up, and it had a different domain architecture than I’d ever seen.” She looked further into the protein, called PASD1, whose function was unknown. She found that among the few proteins it resembled was one called CLOCK. And that made her sit up straighter—because CLOCK is at the heart of a very large, mysterious process.

    We can watch all the HBO stations on Direct TV for less than $14.95 a month.

    HBO is my favorite station. It’s the only premium channel that doesn’t keep its logo on the screen through every movie. Nor do ads pop up while you’re watching a movie, or when the credits on a movie are running. Yesterday we watched a movie on STARZ and couldn’t wait to see the credits but their stupid ads popped up on the left, pushing the credits to the right and making them so small they were illegible.

    I’m wasting this day. No cooking to do, no dog to watch, no need to mow…a perfect day and I should be out pulling weeds. But here I sit. Tomorrow I’ll be kicking myself for not getting to some of my 1,000 jobs.

    The Harley sheeple (1000’s) are returning from Reno’s ‘Street Vibrations’, proudly being rude assholes with their ultra-loud pipes. They are going West, remind me never to go that way again, I’m sick of inconsiderate assholes being rude because they can without opposition. They used to ticket bikers for excessive loud exhaust, no longer obviously, the factories have them as options.
    Earplugs puhleeeze.

      Geezers must grouse.

      That does seem unreasonable.

        Deliberate mass rudeness IS unreasonable, one looks at the offenders and finds small-minded people thrashing out at the World with EXTRA Ba-Boom, screaming out; notice me! notice me! please notice me, in an effort to bolster their small minds into shrinking even further, almost exclusively siding with the Puggers while doing so.
        Circling the drain.

    Bundle of Marijuana worth $10,000 falls from the skies and crushes doghouse.

    @ the Nuevo Vallarta for Chile Relleno and no beer.

    Beer considered bad for gout.
