Amazing Nature: Conciousness and Hunger Response in Sea Stars
This week during a class discussion about sea stars and their biology a teacher asked me the question how sea stars, which have no brain, know that they are hungry. Though it is a seemingly simple question, it actually sent me on an odyssee of reading articles about animal consciousness. Now, after hours of research on the topic and two Harvard publications later, I still can’t come up with a good answer. Can a se...

Revolutionaries wanted: No experience necessary
It's Wednesday at Harborside Flyby Coffee and Goods, where I usually write my column. But first, I must play all my outstanding Trivia Crack games. As I play, seemingly absorbed in my game, people around me are meeting together, sipping coffee concoctions or chai, munching on cookies and biscotti, or slurping soup, as I am. In addition to Trivia Crack, I have become addicted to the Hot and Sour Ramen, which really...

It is on the cape above Fossil Beach, overlooking Ugak Bay. For the best views, we move back and forth between two World War II searchlight bun...
