Sometimes enviromental responsibility goes too far. Washable menstrual pads may be that threshold.
Pretty colors though.
General Motors Corp Vice Chairman Bob Lutz is standing by his statement that global warming is a 'crock.'
He says this has nothing at all to do with GM's commitment to environmentally terrific cars. The blogosphere, naturally, has gone apeshit that the guy has an opinion they don't like. What would be interesting to know is if they believe his commitment to environmental cars despite his personal lack of belief in global warming the same way they insist that, say, teachers who are anti-Bush or anti-religion don't let that impact their classroom education.
There are lots of journals out there, more than I could name in any one article, but as you get into science communication, the number of peer-reviewed publications drops considerably.
That seems odd, since communicating with the public, and therefore with the voters on policy, is so crucial to keeping science funding in place.
A group of volunteers had that same thought, so they secured some funding from the European Space Agency's Hubble Space Telescope group and set out to fill that gap. CAP Journal was born. CAP Journal stands for Communicating Astronomy with the Public. It's a new magazine, in print and online, and the timing is excellent.
Looking for a lamp that's fed by good old Newtonian physics, lasts about 4 hours and outputs a lot of light?
A VA Tech grad student is here to help. It's a gravity lamp!
Ahhhh, Valentine's Day. Bad food, shoddy restaurant service - and you have no choice about it. The Soviet Union had toilet paper lines but they didn't force Valentine's Day on its people. Really, anyone who is unsure what mandates accomplish only needs to look at ethanol for a modern comparison of why things suffer when you force a solution on people.
But all is not lost. There's science in love, you know, and that means there's science in Valentine's Day. Science on Valentine's Day is like cold fusion instead of ethanol. Completely wonderful. And we have it all right here.
Half of UK men would swap sex for 50 inch TV.
This is the reason why when American men go to the UK the line of women wanting to talk to us can be seen from the space shuttle.
