WASHINGTON – Fuzzy math, Illinois State University's president called it. "Political theater of the worst sort," said the University of Washington's head.
President Obama's new plan to force colleges and universities to contain tuition or face losing federal dollars is raising alarm among education leaders who worry about the threat of government overreach. Particularly sharp words came from the presidents of public universities; they're already frustrated by increasing state budget cuts.

Our goal: to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases
You can help scientists studying these diseases by simply running a piece of software.
Folding@home is a distributed computing project -- people from throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the project closer to our goals. Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.
Protein folding is linked to disease, such as Alzheimer's, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers.
Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.
What is protein folding?
Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.
What have we done so far?
We have had several successes. You can read about them on our Science page, on our Awards page, or go directly to our Results page.

Still less than her billionaire boss, but still. Can anyone fail to see the irony of President Obama inviting Debbie Bosanek to sit by his wife for his State of the Union Address to use her as an example of tax unfairness, when the Buffett aide likely earns enough to put a bullseye on her back for the tax hikes Obama has long called for on higher earners?

"An aspiring Queens rapper went on a crime spree that ended when he opened fire on an off-duty NYPD lieutenant — and the cop shot him dead early Thursday, police said.
Christopher Kissane, 22, was felled on a Brooklyn street by a shot fired from 76 feet away that hit him beneath the right eye, police said.
Kissane died later at Brookdale Hospital, leaving his neighbors on 68th Road in Middle Village to wonder what went wrong.
“He was going to release an album,” said a 15-year-old who declined to give her name. “He’s an amazing rapper.”
The NYPD did not identify the 41-year-old lieutenant who fired the fatal shot. He was not injured in the deadly incident, which remains under investigation.
The drama began at 2:45 a.m. when Kissane, dressed in a black hoodie and wearing a red bandana over the lower half of his face, tried to rob a 38-year-old woman at gunpoint on Myrtle Ave. in Ridgewood, Queens, cops said. She escaped.
Ten minutes later, Kissane tried again, this time targeting a 56-year-old woman who had stopped her car at a traffic light. When she saw him approach with gun drawn, she hit the gas and drove off, but not before Kissane fired a shot that hit the back of her vehicle, police said...." (More)
