Heat wave = lower math scores? Check out this article citing Prof. Joshua Graff Zivin's research on how temperatures can affect the brain. #science   #education  
Warmer temperatures lead to lower scores in the short term, but in the long term, it appears that parents and children compensate.

“The climate is changing. Some of that is natural, some is anthropogenic. But whatever its cause, we are working on tools that can improve our ability to adapt to this change and that can help mitigate emissions.” #cadrought   #science  
We may not, as the old saw goes, be able to do anything about the weather. But research is providing the tools to show us what nature has in store so that we can better manage our water supplies, mitigate floods and protect our ecosystem.

Researcher Larry Smarr compares how he monitors his body with how people maintain their cars: “We know exactly how much gas we have, the engine temperature, how fast we are going. What I’m doing is creating a dashboard for my body.” #tech   #health  
Spearheaded by the flood of wearable devices, a movement to quantify consumers’ lifestyles is evolving into big business with immense health and privacy ramifications

For this competition, grad students had to learn how to translate their technical work into a message that would resonate with the hearts and minds of a lay audience. #gradslam  http://bit.ly/1FyvaV4

These "smart earplugs," created by engineering students at UC San Diego, block out the noise you don't want--but make sure you won't miss your alarm or important phone calls. #technews  
These earphones mute unnecessary sounds but will make sure that you don’t miss your morning alarm or important phone calls.

Our campus gets a shout out for being a top surf school. What's your favorite San Diego surf spot?
As we head into spring, high school freshmen everywhere will be making the decision that will change their lives forever: which university they will attend
