Scientists put randomness to work
Since the dawn of written history, people have exploited the randomness of a roll of a die to inject their games with the thrill of the unpredictable. Today, randomness is finding myriad other uses, such as encrypting credit card numbers in Internet transactions, deciding how to allocate treatments in drug trials, choosing precincts to call in national polls, running online gambling sites, and helping physicists simulate phenomena ranging from the weather to traffic patterns.........

If the Law Is an Ass, the Law Professor Is a Donkey
By ADAM LIPTAK
PROFESSORS at the best law schools are generally assumed to be overwhelmingly
liberal, and now a new study lends proof. But whether the ideological imbalance
matters - to the academic environment students encounter, to the kinds of
lawyers the schools produce and to the stock of ideas the professors generate -
depends on whom you ask.
The study, to be published this fall in The Georgetown Law Journal, analyzes 11
years of records reflecting federal campaign contributions by professors at the
top 21 law schools as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Almost a third of
these law professors contribute to campaigns, but of them, the study finds, 81
percent who contributed $200 or more gave wholly or mostly to Democrats; 15
percent gave wholly or mostly to Republicans.
