Elsewhere Mitchell Burns,75, a former Ku Klux Klansman who turned FBI informant and helped convict two Klansmen in a 1963 church bombing that killed four black girls, died of an apparent heart attack Tuesday. Mr. Burns secretly recorded dozens of conversations with bombing suspect Thomas Blanton Jr. in the mid-1960s. He testified last year at Mr. Blanton's trial and earlier this year at the trial of Bobby Frank Cherry. The two men were convicted of murder and are serving life sentences for their part in one of the most notorious crimes of the civil rights era. Mr. Burns was a member of the Klan in Birmingham in the early 1960s.

I have suffered with insomnia for years. My doctor prescribed Ambien, which gives me eight hours of restful sleep. Then the pharmacist switched me to generic zolpidem for under $15. He said it was identical to Ambien. It wasn't! I haven't had a decent night's sleep since switching. If I do fall asleep I have horrible nightmares. I cannot afford $130 for regular Ambien. What else can I do? I need my sleep to be alert at work. Dozens of other readers have also reported problems with generic Ambien (zolpidem)

The sounds of the outdoors don't need any embellishment. But sometimes - either at a cabin or on the dock or even in a rained-in vacation rental - tunes help pass the time during cocktail hour or while playing cards or making dinner. For pure civilization, there's nothing like a Bose SoundDock hooked up to an MP3 player full of tunes. But the Bose is an expensive urban machine and not made for the bumps of "roughing it." Think Outside, a company that makes foldable keyboards for Blackberrys, has solved the problem with its BoomTube H2O1 speaker system ($200)

In the beginning there were frogs' eggs. And then they blew up. That explosive moment during a 1991 experiment was all Dr. Peter Agre and colleagues at the Johns Hopkins medical school needed to prove that a blood cell protein they had come across was the long-sought key to the movement of water in and out of all human cells. The experiment took barely five minutes. The first time Agre's staff activated that protein in the frogs' eggs, the eggs immediately began to swell. In minutes, they burst.

Layoffs may sprinkle the landscape nationally, and high-tech workers may wonder about job security, but at least one Columbia company is helping to keep the driving force of Columbia's tech economy strong. Codeon Corp., one of the newest players in the hot photonics market, is growing as it moves from research and development to production. In the past six months, the company that creates lithium niobate chips - components in high-speed photonics modulating equipment used for high-speed data transmission - has grown from about 50 to more than 100 employees.
