    Neil deGrasse Tyson to bring stars, star power to Auditorium
    Neil deGrasse Tyson is that rarity: a scientist who has become, in recent years, virtually a household name. The host of "Cosmos" on TV last year and the director of New York's Hayden Planetarium, he'll be appearing Jan. 27 at the Auditorium Theatre, a...

    It's dark in the rooms that hold the new exhibition at the Field Museum, dark almost like in the deep ocean where many of the featured "Creatures of Light" live. It's dim enough to get you wondering if you, too, after enough time in an environment...

  • The Dry Garden: Détente with the gopher

     
    Gophers: Best way to get rid of gophers? For ecologist Paula Schiffman, professor at Cal State Northridge, that's actually the wrong question. A better thought to pose is: What good do these animals do in our garden (and they do help in some ways), and...
