Butterfly Surgery

We try not to lose sight of the caterpillars as they are unintentionally brought into the house. You find them when your hand grazes one, and its “horns” erupt. If you see the bright orange prongs and lean closer to sniff the caterpillar, as a real predator might, you’ll be hit by a strange little smell. If you were that predator, and the horns didn’t scare you, maybe this offensive scent would. To the modern human, the caterpillar does have a funk, but it’s so distinctive that you’re likely to sniff harder. What the insect emits is complex and sudden, ... by Marilee Foster

Thus, Suffolk County and state governments refused to draw up and agree to implement a federally required evacuation plan. The Shoreham plant was scuttled. But now the U.S. Nuclear ... by Karl Grossman

VIEWPOINT: Lessons Learned by a ‘Super-Senior’

As I approached my 80th birthday earlier this year, I found myself facing a reality I had never expected. Longevity among male members of my family was far from a given; my own father passed away at the age of 53, shortly after my 8th birthday. In addition, I knew, from a quick study many years ago of life expectancy charts in the World Almanac, that a white American male born in 1942 had a decent chance of making it to 72 and a half, with anything beyond that a gift, pure and simple. My first thought, as my family ... by George Motz
