      * Societies evolve a bit like creatures,

      * Artificial white light may become eye-friendly:
      Scientists aim to make the harsh, artificial-looking
      light of today's energy-efficient light bulbs a
      thing of the past.

      * Neanderthals had feelings too, researchers say:
      Neanderthal people had a deep-seated sense of

      expected
