Food for thought: "Data Mining Indian Recipes Reveals New Food Pairing Phenomenon"
By studying the network of links between Indian recipes, computer scientists have discovered that the presence of certain spices makes a meal much less likely to contain ingredients with flavors in common.

Debris Disk around Beta Pictoris Disturbed by exoplanet's gravity

The large exoplanet around Beta Pictoris was first discovered in 2009 and has an orbital period short enough that astronomers have been able to use the Hubble Space Telescope to directly observe disturbances in the debris disk surrounding the star that's 63.4 light-years away from our solar system.

The image captured by Hubble is in visible light with added data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. 

For more information, check out the press release here: http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2015/06/

This will also be the topic of this week's #HubbleHangout , which will go live at noon Pacific, 3pm Eastern Time.

Story-telling for Science and Broader Impacts

This month, I launched a video production company called Broader Impacts Productions.

My goal is to help organizations, institutions, and scientists tell their unique stories, get the stories to a wide audience, and then provide metrics to quantitatively assess how the stories are received. 

My full-service approach covers all aspects of the content creation and management cycle leaving you free to do what you do best... the science.

Story
Tagline
Dr. Kiki to everyone except Google+. I bring the science.
Introduction

Kirsten Sanford, PhD (a.k.a. Dr. Kiki) is dedicated to making science a part of everyone’s lives.

Dr. Kiki holds a B.S. in Conservation Biology and a Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Physiology from U.C. Davis, and is a specialist in learning and memory. She is also the founder and host of the popular This Week in Science radio show, a weekly program broadcast from U.C. Davis and avidly followed by thousands of fans worldwide.

In 2005, Dr. Kiki was awarded the American Association for the Advancement of Science Mass Media Science & Engineering. Following the fellowship, she worked as a television news producer at WNBC in New York City with noted health and science reporter Dr. Max Gomez.

In late 2007 and early 2008, Dr. Kiki expanded her communications work into online video, starring in both On Networks successful series Food Science and Revision3's variety show PopSiren. She also appeared regularly on Revision3’s Systm, and hosted several episodes of MacBreak during the PixelCorp’s coverage of the 2008 and 2009 MacWorld conference. 

Additionally, Dr. Kiki hosted Potential Energy and Green Tech Today, podcasts about alternative energy concerns and solutions, and was a regular guest on both This Week in Media and This Week in Tech. She contributes to Skepticblog.org and to her own blog, The Bird's Brain.

Dr. Kiki's Science Hour, an acclaimed science interview program on noted technology pundit, Leo Laporte's TWiT.tv, ran from 2010-2012.

Dr. Kiki’s new media efforts initiated her entry into television in 2008. She co-hosted the pilot for a skeptical reality TV show called The Skeptologists. She was also reporter-at-large for the Science Channel and a contributor to their show, Brink, and has appeared on CBS’s The Doctors.

In 2013, Dr. Kiki hosted programs for Google and the Google Science Fair involving noted scientists and political activists.

She has also written for Scientific American and Discover.com.

In her spare time, Dr. Kiki has dabbled in sailing, gymnastics, martial arts, hula hooping, and yoga. She enjoys bird-watching, cooking, reading fiction novels, watching movies, dancing to loud music, and a nice glass of red wine… not necessarily in that order or at the same time.
