May the best science win To the editor: I see that Allan Powell is back again ( Nov. 19) with his "mountains of evidence" for Darwinian evolution with the forces of "epistemology", and the "openness and rigor of science" that he claims for his position. As examples he proposes the writings of Darwin himself and of his most vociferous defender of our time, Richard Dawkins. Dawkins seems like a strange standard bearer for pure science when his crusade for evolution starts from a purely ideological proposition as he tells us himself, "Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.

The three-man band For the Taking could be described as a metal-and-hardcore hybrid with a smattering of punk. Or, say band members after a bit of hesitation, maybe they're "melodic hardcore," adding that figuring out where their music best fits has been the source of argument among the members for years. Perhaps it's easier to look at what they aren't. For starters, For the Taking does not curse or use explicit language. Take the following lyric from their song "Green and Brown" - about guitarist Jason Kantoski's girlfriend - as an example.

We've tried to sort out the Kobe beef puzzle. True Kobe beef comes from Wagyu cattle originally bred in the Kobe area in Japan, says Charley Gaskins, executive secretary for the American Wagyu Association in Washington. Wagyu's genetics lend the cattle to having a higher degree of marbling and the meat is more tender. To help develop marbling potential, a Wagyu's feed portions are controlled so it gains weight slower. Gaskins says properly fed Wagyu cattle will gain 2 to 2 1/2 pounds a day, whereas a typical cattle might gain 3 to 4 pounds a day. Wagyu also tend to be raised for a longer period of time, being marketed at 30 months of age whereas most beef cattle are marketed at less than 20 months.

“And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, 'I need a caretaker.' So God made a farmer. “God said, 'I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.' So God made a farmer. “I need somebody with arms strong enough to rustle a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. Somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have to wait lunch until his wife's done feeding visiting ladies and tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon - and mean it.” So God made a farmer.

Dear Lynne: Please tell me the origin and interpretation of the toast "chin-chin. " A group of friends and I have been using that toast for years, and it always starts off some interesting conversation. The most controversial was with a Japanese exchange student!! Please share any info you have. Thanks! -- E-mail from a Listener Dear Listener: Usually it's associated with Italy and France (where it is spelled "cin-cin"), meaning "to your health" or "cheers. " In the U.K., "chin-chin" can mean "hello," "goodbye" and "cheers.
