Greatest disparity in the GMO topic. Shows how impactful the antiGMO/proOrganic misinformation campaign has been. Will only give "them" more confidence for more misinformation campaigns.

Ok, after like 8 hours of lighting this beast, staying up till 11 last night (huge kudos to +Scott Thompson  for being the iron man wrestling the tree that long) we end up with with a brilliantly lit tree. After a few more hours tonight decorating, the beauty that was the +Courtright's  tree is reborn. It's missing something without the beautiful space the Courtright's built which we all took great pleasure in...but this small emblem lives on.

Um...the tree takes 1600 watts of power. We may have gone a bit crazy

Apparently invites don't unlock right off. If and when I get one, sure

+Scott Thompson is my best friend and probably the smartest person I know. His breadth of knowledge and passion for understanding are motivational to all around him to want to learn more about the world. After laying a great foundation of lecturing and speaking at several other venues, he's finally venturing out into the wider world of the intertubes to put his talks out for anyone to enjoy. This was certainly a great starting point, and I recommend the entire series to anyone who delighted in Cosmos gen 1 or gen 2. 

Lets help a passionate science communicator get seen by more eyes...if you like it, reshare to the twit-land, the fizbooks, and other places like that. Don't comment on the youtube comments though...only trolls live there and its not wise to feed the trolls :)

Wow...its almost like the writer doesn't see the cognitive dissonance of her own standpoint, talking about ignoring evidence that runs counter to your opinion while at the same point trying to use the same rules of evidence to back up the things you agree with. Swap the two viewpoints exactly 180 and make it a liberal blog...and we have the exact same article...through the looking glass ;)

Great article on why the debate itself misses the point. Pro Sustainable, Anti-Pesticide, Anti-Big Business...whatever the reasons are, few if any address the science...and the science is so much more nuanced than the sound bites.

I can get not wanting companies to use more pesticides...I can at least understand (even if not agree with) having an issue with a company profiting off of the genome of food, but all of that is utterly tangential to the science. Much of the rhetoric amounts to throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Genetically modified crops are a big part of both our food supply and our debates about health and safety. But some scientists and observers argue those debates are getting the science of GMOs wrong, and grouping together crops that don't belong in the same argument.

In light of all the terrible stories of Police Officers abusing authority and worse (much MUCH worse), its good to remember that not all of the people in these roles have forgotten their oath to protect and serve. Firemen mowing lawns, police delivering pizzas...makes you want to celebrate them for that, positive reinforcement for the win!
When something needs to get done, it needs to get done. And it's awfully nice to hear that lately, local law enforcement have been stepping up to help finish jobs that can't finish themselves. Ther...

You know, I participated in a fingerprinting thing for kids. All the material was given to the patents and none retained any other body. There are ways to keep your kids safe without turning all their data over to cops

"St Louis police offer to fingerprint all the children in #Ferguson" http://feedly.com/e/BysdFXPf 
The free fingerprinting kits are part of the long-running national push to fingerprint children in the name of public safety, and are a new tone-deaf low from the region's cops.

Want to make yourself public enemy number one in an instant?  Say something, anything, that might be construed as a case for GMOs and it is a foregone conclusion. Are you a popular celebrity? Are y...

Yeah, I saw that talk.  I have the meme from that talk with one of his quotes about Vincent.  He has very good taste!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present your daily dose of idiot....that is all. 
"A whopping 68 percent of Americans think there should be a law that prohibits kids 9 and under from playing at the park unsupervised, despite the fact that most of them no doubt grew up doing just that."
