Roger Waters in a visually stunning concert at Scottrade

The show opened with an airplane dropping bombs and then crashing in a fiery explosion. The show ended, for the most part, with the tumbling down of a 75-foot wall made out of large cardboard bricks.
Roger Waters did not put on just an ordinary concert Friday night at the Scottrade Center — he created a huge, technologically complex and metaphorically dense theatrical spectacle.
Waters was a member of Pink Floyd in 1979 when he created "The Wall," a double album that became a stage show so huge it could only then be performed in a few cities, and then a movie. For this tour, Waters and a crack band of hired guns recreate the music of "The Wall" in its entirety, and they perform it as an elaborate ritualistic experience.

Columbia based scientists working on ways to control Asian carp

COLUMBIA, Mo. • The fish tank at the U.S. Geological Survey's Columbia Environmental Research Center looked like it held a swirling black cloud. A school of juvenile Asian carp was clustered together and rapidly rotating from the outside of the school to the inside.
"They hate to be alone," said Robin Calfee, a USGS biologist who studies the carp.
The carp were acting like this because they were frightened; people were standing over their tank. One of the fish had released a chemical signal known as an "alarm cue," and the others reacted accordingly. The group clustered together to protect itself from a potential predator.
USGS biologists want to take advantage of this behavior. In groundbreaking research, Columbia-based scientists are looking at ways to use the carp's alarm pheromones, attraction pheromones or commercial bait scents to control the movement of carp populations that have taken over many Midwest waterways. They believe this research might hold the key to preventing the invasive species from spreading farther.

First Banks losses continue, but problem loans ease

First Banks lost another $47.8 million in the third quarter, but the privately held bank's problems with bad loans eased.
The third quarter's loss was just more than half the $91.1 million lost in the same period a year ago.
The holding company's main unit, First Bank, generally improved its capital position during the quarter, remaining "well capitalized" by regulatory standards. However, the holding company's capital ratios declined and remained below the "well-capitalized" level.
