Scientist seeks 'adventurous woman' to have Neanderthal baby
Apart from any other issues with this idea, this bit from the article should scare the hell out of anyone considering it:

The DNA of the Neanderthal, a long extinct relative of man, has been more or less rebuilt, a process called genetic sequencing.

More or less rebuilt?

Human Remains Found in Search for King Richard III's Grave
A hunt for the grave of King Richard III has turned up human remains at the medieval church where the English monarch is said to be buried ? but there is no word yet on whether the remains belong to the king.

University of Leicester archaeologists will announce the details of the new findings tomorrow (Sept. 12). Until then, the researchers are remaining tight-lipped about the find.

Archaeologists began excavating the parking lot of the Leicester City Council on Aug. 25 in search of a medieval Franciscan friary known as Greyfriars. The location of the church had been lost, but historical records hold that Richard III, the last English king to die in battle, was laid to rest there in 1485.

New toilet technology after 150 years of waste
Just 150 years? what can you say about this? Weird

These aren't your typical loos. One uses microwave energy to transform human waste into electricity. Another captures urine and uses it for flushing. And still another turns excrement into charcoal.

They are part of a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation competition to reinvent the toilet for the 2.5 billion people around the world who don't have access to modern sanitation.

Scientists from around the world have taken up the challenge, and the foundation announced some projects Tuesday that will be getting more money to take their ideas from the lab to cities.

Mysterious Louisiana Sinkhole Raises Concerns of Explosions and Radiation
A nearly 400-foot deep sinkhole in Louisiana has swallowed all of the trees in its area and enacted a mandatory evacuation order for about 150 residences for fear of potential radiation and explosions.
The sinkhole sits in the middle of a heavily wooded space where it has consumed all of the soaring cypress trees that had been there.
when you read on... some poorly regulated company is probably at fault
