It seems like it's been years since I've sat in a theater and laughed at a movie from beginning to end.

Comedy films, especially adult-oriented ones, are at their financial height right now. In the last few years, R- rated comedies like "21 Jump ...

By all accounts, Audrie was a gorgeous girl. ...

San Diego SunSan Diego Sun | Resource for San Diego News & Ca. Updates
The San Diego Sun is essentially a local San Diego newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for San Diego, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of San Diego, California, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the San Diego Sun.
Biologists at UC San Diego demonstrated last May that algae can be engineered to produce a vaccine that blocks malaria transmission.
The same method may work as a vaccine against a wide variety of viral and bacterial infections.
In their most recent study, researchers fused a protein that elicits an antibody response in mice against the organism that causes malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, which afflicts 225 million people worldwide, with a protein produced by the bacterium responsible for cholera, Vibrio cholera, that binds to intestinal epithelial cells.
They then genetically engineered algae to produce this two-protein combination, or "fusion protein," freeze dried the algae and later fed the resulting green powder to mice.
The researchers hypothesized that together these proteins might be an effective oral vaccine candidate when delivered using algae.
The result - the mice developed Immunoglobulin A (IgA) antibodies to both the malarial parasite protein and to a toxin produced by the cholera bacteria.
Because IgA antibodies are produced in the gut and mucosal linings, they don't protect against the malarial parasites, which are injected directly into the bloodstream by mosquitoes. ...
