So excited for today's weSTEM (Women Empowered in STEM) event here at the iHotel and Convention Center at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm one of the featured speakers, but judging from the women I met last night, I think I will learn much more than I'll be offering!

"weSTEM (Women Empowered in STEM) will provide a forum through which current and future STEM leaders can motivate and inspire each other to excel at the frontier of scientific advancement and develop solutions for the next generation of technical challenges. Women engineers and scientists with advanced degrees will share experiences from their academic and professional career paths and provide insight into their personal successes in STEM.

The program features:
 Two keynote lectures for all participants to attend
 Session talks where attendees may decide between concurrent talks in two tracks
 Break out sessions for students and speakers to have open discussions on topics relevant to the conference talks
 Social/cocktail hour for all attendees to mingle
 Brunch and dinner 
The speakers have been specially selected by members of the planning committee; they are people who have had an important impact on the academic/professional careers of the committee. We hope that weSTEM attendees will be motivated and inspired by these individuals, just as we were. We are excited to welcome students from the University of Illinois and SWE members from around the country to attend."

A brief history of Christian same-sex marriage.

I offer this article for what it is. I'm interested in whether this account is accurate, so does anybody have any relevant knowledge?

Interesting thoughts on some recent research into perceptions of atheists as immoral.

Turns out, even atheists seem to internalise the perception of atheists as more immoral than religious people. Rebecca discusses the implications.
