2 Scholars Who Revolutionized Statistical Modeling Are Awarded the Nobel in Economics
Chronicle of Higher Education, Oct. 9-The Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science was awarded today to two scholars who revolutionized the technique of statistically modeling national economies, stock markets, and other complex systems that evolve over time.

Granger, 69, an emeritus professor of economics at the University of California at San Diego, worked separately and together during the 1980s on the problem of mathematically describing markets that are subject to shocks and fluctuations.

Famed Nature Writer Also Baby-Sits Neighbor Kids' Toads
Associated Press, Oct. 7- David Quammen is one of the most talented and celebrated nature writers in the world, yet he's also a low-key resident of Bozeman, an intense and private man who has an incredible ability to grab an audience that always yawned in science class and make it pay attention.

Scientists Split Over Regulations on Sonar Use
Nature, Oct. 9- The US Congress is considering proposals that will make it easier to get permission to use high-volume sonars in the ocean - just as fresh evidence suggests that their noise can harm marine mammals. (Quote by John Hildebrand, a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.)

Now that Issa Has Helped the Recall, How Will Recall Help Issa?
Copley News Service, Oct. 8-For years to come, Darrell Issa will be remembered as the guy who made it all happen - the maverick congressman who bucked the GOP establishment and spent his own money to put the recall election before California voters. Those twin reputations could do one of two things for Issa. They could make him a darling in GOP circles and propel him to greater things. Or they could leave him a historical footnote, one whose tendency to burn bridges may hinder his future ambitions. (Quote by Gary Jacobson, a UC San Diego political science professor.)
