I haven't found a lot of interesting science news stories on Science Blog this week, but here are a few:
NSF awards $12.3 million for research on genealogy of life
Quantum Goldilocks effect when light, matter combine just right
New insights into aspirin's disease-fighting abilities
Gene mutations caused by jammed cellular highways lead to ALS, dementia
That's it for now. Have a good weekend, and see you Monday!
