Nobody's Perfect
This brief OLogy article helps kids understand that even Einstein made mistakes and didn't always finish everything he started. And, more importantly, that both his mistakes and his unfinished work also led to new ways of thinking. The article uses Einstein's Unified Field Theory as evidence of the value that can be found in imperfection.

Introduction

1.3.1 Reactions to near-death experiences

A number of people have claimed that they have been at death’s door and can recall some of the sensations. Attempts to speak about near-death experiences (a term used to describe the extra-ordinary experiences some people have when close to death or when deeply unconscious) can meet with incomprehension, fear and hostility from friends as well as medical experts and researchers, many of whom refute the existence of near-death experiences. As Toates (1999, p. 1) says:

1.2.3 Boundaries of ‘normality’

The origin of the ‘other’ in society is the widespread human tendency to create categories where people who don't fit in can be placed away from the mainstream. Social categories may lead to prejudice and discrimination, but may also lead to the physical separation of people to the margins of that society. Sibley (1995) traces the physical marginalisation of people in what he calls the ‘geographies of exclusion’. Part of the process of exclusion is where the ‘bad’,

The BRCA1/2 pathway prevents hematologic cancers in addition to breast and ovarian cancers
Background The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that inactivation of virtually any component within the pathway containing the BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins would increase the risks for lymphomas and leukemias. In people who do not have BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations, the encoded proteins prevent breast/ovarian cancer. However BRCA1 and BRCA2 proteins have multiple functions including participating in a pathway that mediates repair of DNA double strand breaks by error-free methods. In
