Under this proposal, the Graham’s and White River beardtongues, also known as penstemon, will be subject to the same “surface-disturbing activities” that ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

This eruption of uncontrolled nature into what developed nations consider serene modernity is more disturbing to the emotional serenity of multitudes than it is threatening to their physical health. Perhaps the world periodically needs an equivalent of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, a chastening reminder that nature still has something to say about what human beings proudly, a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In two papers published in January in the journal Nature, the Japanese and American researchers said that they’d been able to transform ordinary mouse cells into versatile stem cells by exposing them to a mildly acidic environment. Scientists hope to harness stem cells to grow replacement tissue for treating a variety of ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-581424472014-07-02T10:42:42.437-06:00" id="#license-2014-07-02T10:42:42.437-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
