Gorgeous! I guess there are a few consolations for being inundated with ice and snow in winter.
 
Like much of the rest of the eastern coast of North America, we've had a pretty long and cold winter here in Niagara too. But when you read on the internet that Niagara Falls has frozen over, don't believe it. There may be lots of snow and ice covering the falls, but the water still runs. This was taken this morning of the Horseshoe Falls, and I can assure you, the water was flowing on both falls. I have never heard of the falls freezing over except for here on the internet. :)

My ha'penny: It's good to draw attention to this problem, and especially good from a Nobel Laureate.  Tia, I'd like to discuss the phrasing of an item in your recent yahoo/livescience year-end summary.  I have a very old computer/browser, so your email link does not work for me.  Mine is porkupine73@gmail.com

Fascinating. Such a harrowing tale and so interesting how many circumstances needed to coincide to keep this man alive.

Tia: Concerning your F1 article, can you put me in contact with Craig Dolder? I live across the street from the track (F1) in Austin  and the noise is awful. Cathy (trzoo@aol.com)

Why do you think nightmares and psychosis are connected?
 
Spooky night terrors and nightmares in children are tied to later risk of psychosis-symptoms. But it's still not clear what the causal mechanism is, if there is any. : http://www.livescience.com/43795-nightmares-linked-to-psychosis.html

I have trouble agreeing with this.

Every Olympics has its share of oddballs and weird stories, but I think the luger who changed his name to a lingerie company has to top the list: http://www.livescience.com/43032-weird-winter-olympics.html

Hello, my name is David Smith, I had a near death experience when I was 14 I saw my body a couple times. Somehow, I feel to perceive lots of information about people and things that I just can't simply explain, but I tend to be real dull minded when I look at simple things like what's going on, or who am I, or what do I like. I can't figure out. I had a closed head injury, but I can perceive information and explain details, I feel like I'm outside my body still and I look at the world and myself from a far away perspective, rather than just being myself. I close my eyes at night, and I feel like I'm looking inside a huge giant mansion room, or I feel things are cluttering me up, to where I have to open my eyes. I often lose the meanings and feelings of who people are, and I see so so much more realism and information in my mind, as I do somewhat feel as something happened to me when I died after my accident. I am much more elegant and I am barely starting to remember little things about me over 15 years ago, as my past life has just vanished, but I can see the truth in almost everything I do, or people I talk to. Would you like to study me. David Smith energyforart@gmail.com or 303-668-2923

I write about the distant past, dystopian futures, and everything in between for LiveScience.
Introduction
Welcome! I'm a staff writer for LiveScience.

Previously, I was knee-deep in freedom of information act requests as a homeland security and immigration researcher at the Center for Investigative Reporting. I've also written for Wired.com, The Daily Beast, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Scientific American and other publications.

My reporting on infant mortality was part of a series that was awarded a Casey Medal, an American Society of Newspaper Editors award for online story telling, and a communication award from the National Academies.

I hold a certificate in science writing from the University of California, Santa Cruz, a masters in bioengineering from the University of Washington, and undergraduate degrees in mechanical engineering/Plan II from the University of Texas at Austin. 

I'm a not-so-secret fan of the oxford comma.

I'm always on the lookout for great stories, so go ahead and email me!
