Blue Man Group remains an original and groundbreaking entertainment event, even though the group has been performing around the world for almost 25 years. I first saw the Blue Man Group when it was an Off-Broadway phenomenon in the 1990s, but since that time the Blue Man experience has gone worldwide. The mind-blowing production is coming to Salt Lake City next week, April 1-6 at Kingsbury Hall. The Blue Man Group's show is hard to describe, but it combines percussion, lighting effects, …more

First attempt at geocaching (treasure hunting) in Salt Lake = FUN.  But before I go too far into details about my treasure hunting experience, you might ask ‘what is geocaching?'. I asked the same question last week in Seattle, where I had the pleasure to visit Groundspeak (the company that manages geocaching.com and other location based adventures).Prior to visiting Groundspeak, I had little knowledge of geocaching. But I learned of the worldwide enthusiasm for geoaching: a …more

Life at the Speed of Light

 J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., is Founder, Chairman, and CEO of the J. Craig Venter Institute (JVCI), a not-for-profit, research organization dedicated to human, microbial, plant, synthetic and environmental research. He is also Co-Founder and CEO of Synthetic Genomics Inc. (SGI), a privately-held company dedicated to commercializing genomic-driven solutions to address global needs. In 1998, Dr. Venter founded Celera Genomics to sequence the human genome using new tools and techniques he and his team developed. This research culminated with the February 2001 publication of the human genome in the journal, Science. Dr. Venter and his team at JVCI continue to blaze new trails in genomics. They have sequenced and analyzed hundreds of genomes and created the first self-replicating bacterial cell constructed with synthetic DNA.

In 2010, Dr. Venter and his team at the JCVI successfully constructed the first "synthetic bacterial cell" putting humankind at the threshold of a new phase of biological research, one that is enabling us to go from reading the genetic code (sequencing genomes) to now writing the genetic code for designing new species. The science of synthetic genomics will have a profound impact on society, including new methods for chemical and energy production, human health and medical advances, clean water, and new food and nutritional products. Dr. Venter, regarded as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his numerous pioneering advances in genomics, will guide us through this emerging field, detailing its origins, current challenges, and the potential positive advances.

Dr. Venter is a pioneer of the genomics revolution. His work on synthetic biology truly embodies the theme of “pushing the boundaries of life.” Essentially, Venter is seeking to “write the software of life” to create microbes designed by humans rather than only through evolution. The potential benefits and risks of this new technology are enormous. It also requires us to examine, both scientifically and philosophically, the question of “What is life?”

By Ted Scheffler, City Weekly -- With spring in the air and baseball back in swing, I find myself veering toward sports bars a little more than usual. The crack of a bat and the snap of opening a cold bottle of brew are two of my favorite sounds. I used to think that sport-themed bars and restaurants were a fairly...more

Economic Review -- What do Fort Worth, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City have in common? Bikes, and lots of them. These cities, among others, launched organized bike share programs in 2013, joining another 40 metropolitan areas with similar programs already in place. Now, going into its second season, and after ab...more

By Nancy Cook, National Journal -- Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker is not your typical Utah politician. For starters, he's a Democrat and a proud progressive in a Red State, the son of a former U.S. ambassador, who grew up in Washington, D.C., and attended a private Episcopal school. Yet, Becker settled in Utah ...more
