Person solves hundred year old mystery that has confounded everyone, treats it with enthusiasm usually reserved for watching paint dry.

Big thank you to Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire, which offered Texas students affected by Houston floods more help than Texas universities did.

Babylon 5 feels more timely now than when it aired. Every episode is streaming without commercials. Recommended. Don't let a few iffy episodes in the beginning deter you. It pays off.

American researchers run experiments on humans outside of US, with no approval, partly to say "Screw the FDA".

Important.

Hope everyone is enjoying the eclipse - especially those of you where the eclipse is total, you lucky devils.

Meanwhile, a few miles from my university...
"The Rio Grande Valley is one of the most biologically diverse regions of the country. It is a major bird migration corridor, with over 500 species, more than half the total number in North America. It is also the last remaining habitat for the endangered ocelot, a medium-size spotted cat hunted nearly to extinction for its fur.

For decades, naturalists have worked to build a corridor of public and private sanctuaries along the Rio Grande to allow the ocelot and other wildlife to roam semi-freely. That effort is now under threat."

The collection of world's worst academic papers is now even more terrible! 17 stings and hoaxes that breezed by editors who should have known better!

I've had to upload two new versions in one week after initial release, because I found 2 more papers and 2 more conference abstracts to inlcude.
