    World's first in-vitro beef burger cooked in London

    Posted: 8/6/2013 3:42:52 AM EST
    Chef Rich McGeown prepares to cook the world's first lab-grown beef burger during a launch event in west London, August 5, 2013. The in-vitro burger, cultured from cattle stem cells, the first example of what its creator says could provide an answer to global food shortages and help combat climate change, was fried in a pan and tasted by two volunteers. The burger is the result of years of research by Dutch scientist Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht, who is working to show how meat grown in petri dishes might one day be a true alternative to meat from livestock.The meat in the burger has been made by knitting together around 20,000 strands of protein that has been cultured from cattle stem cells in Post's lab.

A federal judge has ordered that several documents be unsealed in a lawsuit between Idaho inmates and Corrections Corporation of America just days before a hearing is set over whether the private prison company should be held in contempt of court. A group of inmates is suing Corrections Corporation of America, contending the company is working with a few powerful prison gangs to control the facility and save money on staffing.

Labor leaders are getting more creative _ and some say more desperate _ in trying to boost their sagging numbers. Unions are helping non-union fast food workers around the country hold strikes to protest low wages and poor working conditions. They are organizing home day care workers, university graduate students and even newly legalized marijuana dealers. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Sculptor Lei Yixin says he has removed a disputed inscription from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall, and he is now working on a new finish for the side of the memorial statue. Plans call for Lei to carve grooves over the former words to match existing striation marks in the King memorial. Lei said Thursday he is working to deepen all of the grooves so that they will match.
