Charles Darwin's natural selection mystery solved after 160 years in stunning breakthrough

Charles Darwin was fascinated by pigeons, believing that the secrets to his revolutionary theory of natural selection in 1859 was held in their beaks.It was believed the development of their beaks weren’t affected by natural selection, with 350-plus breeds of domestic pigeons having beaks of all shapes and sizes. It was thought that centuries of interbreeding showed beak length was most likely to be regulated by just a few heritable factors. And modern geneticists had failed to solve Darwin’s enigma by pinpointing the molecular machinery controlling beak size.

Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection Has Left a Legacy of Confusion over Biological Adaptation

In recent articles, I summarized lectures at CELS (Conference on Engineering in Living Systems) that described the design-based assumptions prevalent in systems biology and that outlined an engineering model for adaptation (here, here). Now I will summarize a third CELS lecture that revealed how Charles Darwin shifted the conventional understanding of biological adaptation as an internal capacity of an organism to the belief that it is the product of the environment acting on a species externally.

Snowboarding’s Favorite Chef: An Interview with Jason Williams

Eating at restaurants in resort towns all the time can get pricey, so it’s always nice to have a buddy that can cook. It is even nicer when that buddy is a professionally trained chef. Cue up Jason Williams, a talented chef that hails from the East Coast and has been cooking for crews on winter trips around the world for the past decade. I first met Jason a few years back in Aspen, when I walked into a kitchen and snuck some potatoes that were sitting on the counter. I thought I got away scot-free, but Brock Crouch caught me and said, “Dude, try his bread.” I did, and if I had to pick between having that bread for sandwiches for the rest of my life or strapping in to a snowboard ever again, I would probably still pick snowboarding, but I have to tell you, it would be close. But back to Jason. Not only can he cook, he can rip! Check Blatt’s photo below for proof. From late night meals for riders in Aspen during X Games to strike missions to Japan, Jason has cooked (and ridden) just about everywhere. While he wraps up his restaurant season up in Maine at The Well at Jordan’s Farm and prepares for another winter on the road, we hit him with a few questions to get a bit of his backstory, as well as a recipe that’s perfect to dig into after a day on hill. Enjoy. – Mark Clavin.

The freedom of natural selection

Life and death decisions are an expected - and it should go without saying - extremely difficult part of the medical profession. Two people are brought into the emergency room. One is the victim of a serious gunshot wound and the other a terrible car accident. In a matter of moments, the physician on duty has to determine the extent of the injuries, the life-threatening nature and, quite possibly, who has the best chance of survival so that resources can be used most efficiently.

Natural Selection

“I remember a tumbleweed blowing into my yard and thinking ‘Wow, what am I going to do with this?’ I put it on a shelf knowing it would eventually present itself.” Artist Owen Mortensen eventually picked that tumbleweed off the shelf of his studio in Northern Utah and from it—along with LED lights and dozens of similar tumbleweeds-—he crafted nature-inspired light fixtures. The ethereal pendants became a success, and many of them now hang in homes across the West as well as Yuta, The Lodge at Blue Sky’s signature restaurant in Wanship.

Meyer: “Can Natural Selection Explain the Origin of Life?”

So there’s this absented-minded philosopher of science walking down the street, head in the clouds, not looking where he’s going. He falls into a hole from which he’s unable to extricate himself. What does he do? If only he had a ladder. Inspiration strikes! He realizes he’s got a ladder in the garage, so he goes home, gets the ladder, returns to the hole and leaps in, and then climbs out of the hole thanks to the ladder.
