Excellent news from California for birds and wildlife! #GetTheLeadOut
The California Senate today passed historic legislation to protect the state’s condors, eagles and other wildlife from lead poisoning by requiring the use of nonlead ammunition for all hunting by 2019. Assembly Bill 711 (Rendon) passed by a vote of 23-15; it passed the state Assembly in May. If the bill is signed by the governor, California will be the first state in the country to require the use of nontoxic bullets and shot for all hunting.

Congrats to the Detroit Zoo!
The Detroit Zoo says it's giving up a $240,000-annual revenue stream when it stops selling bottled water to visitors.

I'm not sure if all the National Wildlife Refuges have done this but the "Ding" Darling NWR on Sanibel banned bottled water sale last year. Visitors can now buy inexpensive re-fillable bottles and fill the bottles with filtered water FREE.

A heads up about Google Scholar pages. If you don't have a .edu email address, they remove you from public listing.

If you are a postdoc, in industry, or move outside of Academia as I have, make sure you don't try to update your old email!! This is the result.

Read carefully--your "news" may actually be a sponsored advertisement.

This is fairly depressing, and probably our new normal. "NSIDC's Web site is currently unavailable because of severe weather and flooding."

Self-promotion and public engagement. Thoughtful read for your Sunday
Here we present two views on public engagement (PE) or public relations (PR) and the thorny issue of “self promotion” in scientific research, from two scientists who might on the surface seem to be...
