Dodging the Roadkill: Two Bikers And A Bucket List

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Every biker wants to ride the legendary Route 66.  Many of you have, and if you’re like me, you have it on your bucket list.  Two friends of mine recently completed that trek, logging nearly 5,000 miles before they got home.

David Bearden and Matt Moriarty have been friends for nearly 30 years.  They’re both veteran bikers who share the love of the open road and plenty of “wind therapy.”  They began planning their wild west trip nearly two years ago and like most adventures, it began with a simple, “we should do this.”

Riding along Route 66 was just the beginning of their 3 week adventure.  They visited the world’s largest Mcdonalds, the Route 66 Museum, and had dinner at The Big Texan, a legendary steak house.

Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – The public should be consulted before gene editing is used to treat human embryos, according to a survey of scientists published in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics.

The public should be consulted before gene editing is used to treat human embryos, a survey of 300 cardiovascular researchers finds.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA’s longest-lived mission to Mars has gained its first look at the Martian moon Phobos, pursuing a deeper understanding by examining it in infrared wavelengths.

The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) camera on NASA’s Mars Odyssey orbiter observed Phobos on September 29th, 2017. Researchers have combined visible-wavelength and infrared data to produce an image color-coded for surface temperatures of this moon, which has been considered for a potential future human-mission outpost.
