ROSEVILLE, Minn. - In a gleaming laboratory hidden from the highway by a Hampton Inn and a Denny's restaurant, a researcher with the biotech firm Calyxt works the controls of a boxy robot. The robot whirs like an arcade claw machine, dropping blips of DNA into tubes with pipettes. It's building an enzyme that rewrites DNA - and transforming food and agriculture in the process.
My partner of five years drowned on a beautiful, ordinary summer day in 2009. Matt was strong, fit, healthy - and needed regular doses of the river and the woods to keep himself sane. We used to joke that he was half mountain goat, able to scale the face of waterfalls if need be.
The 29-year-old hijacker was performing mid-air stunts over Puget Sound, an erratic flight pattern that seemed to mirror the loops and barrel rolls of his radio chatter. He told the control tower he was "a broken guy" but a lot of people cared about him and he wanted to apologize. He asked the whereabouts of an orca whale and her dead calf. And he wondered - laughing - what would happen if he tried to do a "backflip" with the plane he had stolen from Seattle's main airport.
Millennials have been accused of killing so many products and industries-taxis, landlines, snail mail—that it's become a media trope. But millennials are old news. Today, businesses and marketers are desperately anticipating the murderous whims of Gen Z, the demographic born after 1996.

"This is a tradition that happens in all rank and all files of life, whether you're president of the United States - and this is the first naturalized first lady that we have - or people who eventually navigate through the waters into America," Michael Wildes told CNN on Friday.
Democratic leaders fearful of potential Russian interference and burned by recent conservative success on social media have begun a new effort to win the midterm election battle on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. - President Donald Trump marked the first anniversary of deadly racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday with an appeal to peace and national unity. "The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!"

My oven is getting dusty. It's only reasonable, of course, that I am reluctant to turn it on in the summer, when all it does is add 20 degrees to the inside temperature, causing my old air conditioner to work that much harder. Besides, who needs a casserole or a cake between, say, May and September, when just-picked tomatoes and ice cream are on the menu?
A bloody mary is the savory tooth's best friend: It's rich with tomato juice, spicy and complex from the seasonings, and has a pleasant, boozy kick.
