A great analysis of what made The Wrath of Khan such a fantastic movie. Thanks +Joseph Cilluffo 
Now that a Star Trek movie is #1 at the box office again, everybody's looking back at the history of Star Trek films. And one meme I've been hearing a lot is that Wrath of Khan, formerly the sacred cow of Trek films, is overrated. Here's why that's not true.

Something wicked this way comes.

Just left the office to be greeted by a rather imposing sky that promises to only get worse.

We came across these beautiful hidden ponds while we hiked through the woods in Wyoming.

New study referred to in this article links drinking energy drinks with tobacco, alcohol and drug use. This article is a glimpse for parents of teenagers into just what's in the energy drinks they're consuming.  We pediatricians have been down on energy drinks from the beginning, but looking at them as a stepping stone to other addictive substances is really worrisome. 
Pass the glycerol ester of wood rosin, brah! According to a new study, teens who love energy drinks are also the ones who smoke, drink and do drugs. So what are we missing? The good stuff, apparently

This is my friend's lab singing along with emergency sirens.  Hysterical!

Putting the finishing touches on our hurricane preparedness kit last night. The last packages of D batteries in Target.

We just got back from another fantastic week in Wyoming. Nothing says summer quite like huckleberry ice cream and choke cherry syrup. A week is just not long enough. This is the view from the cabin where we stayed. Not too shabby.

Until Google comes up with their own internal way to search posts, you can use this site.
Rich Knight originally shared:
 
http://gplussearch.com allows you to easily search all public google+ posts, much like the search on twitter. This will allow the use of hashtags etc.
Great for discovering people with common interests and expanding those circles!

Introduction
About me, and what I'm into...

Family

It should go without saying that family comes first.  That said, I'll say it anyway.  There is nothing that gives me greater pleasure than time spent in the company of my family.

The Art of Practicing Medicine

I'm one of the few who still thinks that practicing medicine, specifically pediatrics, is the greatest job in the world.

Technology (with a purpose)

I confess I get ridiculous amounts of enjoyment from playing with gadgets and figuring out what kinds of cool stuff I can do with them.

Documenting Life

While I'm not in the same league as my wife, I do enjoy photography.  I'm a fan of capturing the meaningful moments of life in any way that's handy.

Reading

Enjoying SF/F and interesting non-fiction about re-examining old notions with some logic and science.

The Outdoors

I make every effort a suburbanite can to find himself in the woods somewhere.
