CHICAGO — Outside the bruising politics of stem cell research, scientists are rapidly moving beyond the black-and-white contrasts that have fueled the moral battle over their work.
Conservatives have staked out a position opposed to all stem cell research that involves the destruction of human embryos, championing methods that derive stem cells in other ways.
Advocates of embryonic stem cell research, on the other hand, argue that only embryo-derived cells can form any type of tissue, offering unique hope for diseases such as Parkinson's and diabetes.

HACKENSACK, N.J. — Dissection, that staple of high school biology class, is slowly going the way of the slide rule, yielding to changes in technology, values, funding and science itself.
"Biology has changed a lot," said Edward Nartowitz, science supervisor at Ridgewood High School. "There was a time when biology was mostly descriptive, so most of what you did was to dissect plants and animals. No more."

James Rardin, Ramon Camacho and Megan Safford are this year's Teachers of the Year, their colleagues learned at a staff meeting Monday afternoon.
The three teachers won the titles after a process that involved nomination by their students, fellow teachers, adminisistrators and other staff members, and parents. A group of teachers and administrators then reviewed the nominations and narrowed the field to nine finalists: three from Houses One and Four, Houses Two and Five and Houses Three and Six.
