Pork. The other white FISH.

By Andrew Pollack on 03/27/2006 at 02:33 PM EDT

Speaking of transgenic food, some scientists are playing at intelligent design. They've spliced a gene for making oils of the kind fish make -- so called "Omega 3 fatty acids" -- into pigs. Two of the three pigs in the picture below have it. That could be a good thing for humans if it works out to be safe and easy to breed.Picture of pigglets

These Omega 3 fatty acids are what make fish so good for you. Its also the only supplement I take on a regular basis. I can say personally that it prevents me from having muscle cramps and even back spasms as long as I take it once or twice a week. Its also supposed to be good for inflammation and general mood. Its been documented to reduce aggression and anger in addition to aiding memory and focus. I can't speak to those things personally, but I can say without question that its an important part of my diet that I don't get. How cool would it be if your pork chops had this in it. Of course, who would want to eat fishy tasting pork chops?

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
