Komodo dragons, Babel, and a man-made star

WHAT WE NEED MORE OF:
* "Ten researchers, politicians, business executives and philanthropists who have recently demonstrated outstanding commitment to assuring that the benefits of new technologies and knowledge will accrue to humanity."
* Babel, now: designing a universal translator.
* We do need more science in talking about the controversy over the Yucca Mountain disposal site.
* Oh hey, turns out komodo dragons are actually poisonous after all.
* A new step in agriculture with miniature cows.
* To cap it all off, how about a man-made star?
