Having trouble catching roaches? Now some of them are wearing tiny cannons on their backs!
From Science Magazine, we find researchers at the University of California, Berkeley are testing a new mathematical model about how quickly roaches regain stability. These little critters (little being relative here - the example given is a roach that's 44 millimeters long) compensate extremely quickly when thrown off balance (I guess that would be as long as they don't end up on their back).
The relevance mentioned is insight into our muscular and skeleton systems.

I am tempted to say something here about the stability of your data warehouse program, but I'll stop while I'm ahead.
