Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Illustrated Periodic Table shows how we regularly interact with each element. I still say the Periodic Table is one of science's great achievements.

- Saddened to hear this news about Tiny Archibald.

- If true this is really disappointing on the part of NOAA. Eroding trust in science and government at the same time.

- Who knew?

- Interesting look at how 40-years ago Israel basically changed from being a socialist nation to a capitalist one and how that change has made all the difference.

- One of the most persuasive arguments I ever read FOR taking PED's. Sadly the author Andrew Tilin recently died when he was hit by a car while biking.

- National Geographic's Photo of the Year.


  1. This is business as usual at NOAA and has been for a very long time.

  2. I would be for a law that said any organization receiving federal funds that falsifies or alters scientific data would be ineligible for any federal money for a period of 10-years. And the individuals responsible for the falsifying or altering the data are subject to felony charges (it's basically grand theft).

    So let it be written - so let it be done.
