Science News

I read a couple interesting science news articles recently. I'm a little trepidatious about posting them here, because I know that the links are likely to rot away in a few weeks (maybe not for the SF Gate one, but almost assuredly for the stupid LA Times) and I really hate that, but they're neat enough that I feel compelled to share.

Archaean bacteria from the Lost City and the Abyssal Hills!
About primitive microbes on the bottom of the ocean. Contains the bonus phrases "autonomous benthic explorer", "slurp gun", and "Hey, it's alive!".

Neurobiology of trust
A neat article about what goes on in your brain when you're thinking about trading, trusting, and economics. Warning: do not read if you cherish your illusions that economic theory understands the stock market.
