Politics. Sarah Palin using technology. From Flickr, by asecondhandconjecture

Here we have Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin seated at a flight simulator. Palin also demonstrated her technological skills when she used eBay to put her luxury jet up for sale for $2.7 million. The jet reportedly sold for $2.1 million. Palin also supports using the Internet to promote transparency in government, although when hackers recently exposed Palin's personal email account which contained business transactions, she did not approve.

Also in the Politics channel this week, we liked:

This is a photo displays the preparations for electrophoresis. Wells have been molded into agarose gel and filled with dyed DNA fragments which have been amplified using the Polymerase Chain Reaction technique. An electric current is passed through the gel, pulling the DNA through it and catching different-sized fragments at different positions, indicating which fragments are present.

Some good ones from the Medicine & Health channel:
