Congratulations to the winners of our Kidz Lab Challenge!  More than 200 kids took the challenge to invent a gadget to help +Chris Hadfield in space and their imaginative inventions made selecting winners (two rounds of judging over 4 days) nearly impossible.

Doing the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Charity Challenge for +Scientists in School again this year.  Would love your support to get more kids excited about science.  Donations of $10 or more will receive a charitable gift tax receipt (Canada).
Scientists in School is an awesome charity that allows kids to become scientists right in their own classrooms.
If you love to see kids doing science - then pony up!

While I'm on a bee kick, here's a high-res photo of a brood frame from one of my backyard hives. You'll definitely want to click on the large version for the details.

General Help  - 
 
A few months ago, there was a rumour going around that G+ pages were going to be separated from their owners, such that they could have multiple admins (and not be connected to a single entity).
Have run into a related issue and am hoping you can help.
I own the Scientists in School (SiS). SiS is a Canadian charity.  Because the page is owned by me (an employee of SiS), I am unable to merge it with other SiS pages (like our YouTube page). 
I am merged with my YouTube page and my Yahoo account.  I am willing to unmerge these from myself if it meant that I could have my charity's pages merged.
Can you advise?

A few years ago I read a book on human evolution and genetic bottlenecks (some caused by global climate change). I cannot find this book (I think I still have it in a box somewhere) and despite numerous attempts at googling assorted phrases to find the title/author, I have been unable to find it. It had an incredible graph mapping global climate change through human history. It may have had "reptilian brain" in the title or subtitle (or I may be confusing it with another book I've owned).  Anyone have any ideas?
(Vague enough for you?)
