Links: November 29 2011

A4J is managing to squeeze in one more posting before the end of November… just made it. Enjoy another curious smattering of information and/or randomness.

Double science news! A lab in Pennsylvania that may have randomly stumbled upon a cure for cancer: and in the war against AIDS:

Pic of the day… what a helicopter’s path looks like at night (long exposure lens): 

Bonus cool pic of the day, an awesome wall mural in Montreal (you need to scroll, btw):
