"This is the power of science: to quietly change and improve our lives through research and evidence. But sometimes science is too quiet."

What do you think about climate change? It may depend on who you are, what you earn, and where you're from.

The next president will be making critical decisions related to science policies that will influence our lives for decades. In this interview, I spoke with Kathleen Dunn about politics, science, and the media. It was a fun one.

Interesting you used the Obama administration in your talk.  You might also want to illustrate how this administration abused science as discussed at  https://www.facebook.com/PoliticiansAbusingScience?ref=hl     it tells a documented different story of the reality

Yet I feel safer in a forest with an elk traveling close by instead of swimming with great white sharks.   I am just funny that way.     By the way,  cars should be listed at 152, or the aggregate of deer and cows  ;)

I'll be on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend. (Assuming there's not a bigger story breaking). We did a segment on The Science of Kissing at NYU.

Thinking of philematology always prompts me think about how the phonetics sound very close to phlegm-atology :P

Young people are most likely to have college degrees, but still be unemployed. That's a big drawback for a demographic that's trying to take the lead on energy solutions.

Politicians are basically power seekers & what to talk of science, any debate among them is infact a delusion.
Their difference of opinions arise never for sake of Rights or Truth rather for benefits which they & their groups would enjoy & their debate continues till their consensus for plundering.

We have had two great experiences with Bill and Charlie's. In the first instance, they replaced a tire without trying to make us buy a set of two or four when it wasn't necessary. The second time, they were able to reset my dashboard and didn't charge us a fee. These guys are honest and it's been a better experience than any other place we've taken our Subaru. Everyone in service was helpful, informative, and very nice. As a woman, I also appreciate that no one seems to speak down to me, as has been my experience at other car service shops. If we could give them 6 stars, we would. Go here.
