Terrorism strikes America: The Boston Marathon

Obviously there are many, many reports available online about the terror attack in Boston yesterday.  The information remains fluid.  Here is just one current report from Fox News.

“Source close to the investigation tells Fox News that ‘pressure cookers were used’ in both bombs — possibly as timers — that exploded yesterday at the Boston Marathon finish line, killing 3 and wounding 176. Another source says the style of device closely resembles that commonly seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

In vitro eugenics

CONVERGENCE Website Note: The linked article is from the “Journal of Medical Ethics” – the following paragraph is the Abstract from the article.  Note that “human enhancement” is mentioned, along with the term “in vitro eugenics.” This article… is written by Dr. Robert Sparrow, of Australia.  He says much more in the article; check it out.
“A series of recent scientific results suggest that, in the not-too-distant future, it will be possible to create viable human gametes from human stem cells. This paper discusses the potential of this technology to make possible what I call ‘in vitro eugenics’: the deliberate breeding of human beings in vitro by fusing sperm and egg derived from different stem-cell lines to create an embryo and then deriving new gametes from stem cells derived from that embryo. Repeated iterations of this process would allow scientists to proceed through multiple human generations in the laboratory. In vitro eugenics might be used to study the heredity of genetic disorders and to produce cell lines of a desired character for medical applications. More controversially, it might also function as a powerful technology of ‘human enhancement’ by allowing researchers to use all the techniques of selective breeding to produce individuals with a desired genotype.”
