Labs are businesses, where scientists manage people, projects and budgets. Why don't we provide them with business courses and leadership training? We should.

Yes! My classmate in my PhD program, and former Oxitec employee, +Esther Miller, has suggested this as well and I think it's a phenomenal idea.

Exciting news this morning - When I composed The Science of Kissing, I included a chapter on neuroscience that brought readers into Dr. David Poeppel's NYU lab to set up a novel brain-scanning fMRI experiment. It was a great opportunity to describe how science happens and what conclusions can and cannot be drawn from research. It was also a chance to try something new as an author - usually books are written about research, but in this case the research came out of working on the book. This morning I got word that a scientific journal has accepted our article from that experiment for publication! I will share the link when it's available. Huge thanks to the great +Gregory Cogan  for all of his hard work and dedication throughout our project!

If +CNN is launching a new style section because "style matters," surely they should also bring back science coverage - which they dumped a few years ago! Water, energy, food and climate matter at least as much as " these creative industries at their best."

My public service announcement for the day: There's a news story bouncing around the web claiming "Antibiotics in childhood...can lead to lifelong obesity"

Yes - it's in a study about mice. The scientist's own papers contradict any effect in humans. (h/t Ed Yong​)

Excellent segment on food waste, which accounts for nearly half of the food we produce in the U.S. And keep in mind, wasted food = wasted energy and water too.

Tonight at 6pm ET, watch the live stream of Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton at the graduation of the inaugural class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars. It's a truly unique and amazing program that I've been honored to be a part of over the last six months. Also speaking are Shark Tank's Mark Cuban and my amazing friend, Jake Harriman of Nuru International. ‪#‎plscholars‬

Scientists in the Netherlands have reported that we share about 80m bacteria during a passionate ten-second kiss; a finding that makes puckering up seem cringe-worthy – and downright unsanitary during a cold and flu season.

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.
