Enjoying
Philip Plait is hanging out with 2 people right now in a live Hangout On Air! #hangoutsonairFraser Cain and Pamela Gay

Excellent piece by D.J. Grothe. I abhore "Dr. Phil", but I had no idea that he'd done a show with these people. Also, you MUST watch the video included in the piece. It's perfect.

Directly influence science education: help a science teacher fund projects. http://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/247780

This 8th grade science classroom is located in a relatively affluent area, but due to the LAUSD's Choice program, which allows students to attend schools throughout the district, the student body is extremely diverse and a full half are categorized as economically disadvantaged. Donors Choose provides a way for anyone to donate and any amount is appreciated.

There's a web version, smart phone apps, and even texting.

There is still time! FEMA denied funding for rebuilding after the earthquake in VA, but you can help, get a virtual hug from a wonderful astronomer, and perhaps win a Galileoscope! The 411: http://noisyastronomer.com/2011/10/16/quakes-and-hugs/
