For those of us who rely on oral history as a research methodology, this is disturbing: "Researchers who conduct oral history have no right to expect courts to respect confidentiality pledges made to interview subjects, according to a brief filed by the U.S. Justice Department on Friday."

Looking for Behavioral and Social Science volunteer judges for the NYC Science and Engineering Fair 2012!


We are looking for judges for this year's NYC Science Fair and especially need Behavioral and Social Science folks. Last year the POTUS showed up randomly. Can't make any guarantees for this year. Please share this widely with those who may be interested in the NYC-area. Judges do not need to be professors, can be grad students, and working outside of academia, just have expertise in the field.



Looking for Behavioral and Social Science volunteer judges for the NYC Science and Engineering Fair 2012!

Remember your high school science fair project? Whether it won or lost, competing in a science fair was your chance to discuss your answers to a big question, contribute to the greater scientific understanding, point to a career in science or just foster a life-long love of discovery.

The New York City Science & Engineering Fair (NYCSEF) is the city’s largest research competition for high school students and is organized by The City University of New York (CUNY) in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education. Approximately 500 high school students from throughout the five boroughs will be presenting their research and competing for a variety of prizes, including a chance to represent NYC at the International Science and Engineering Fair in May.

We’re currently looking for volunteer judges for this year’s competition, especially in the category of Behavioral and Social Science. This is a great opportunity for NYC area scientists to interact with students outside of a classroom environment and inspire these young scientist and engineers of tomorrow.

This year’s competition dates are:

Preliminary Round

Date: Sunday, March 4, 2012

Judging Time: 9:30am – 1:30pm

Location: The City College of New York

Final Round

Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Judging Time: 11:30am – 4:30pm

Location: The American Museum of Natural History.

To sign up, please go to <http://collegenow.cuny.edu/sciencefair/volunteer-to-judge/> and click on the orange link. Also, please pass along this information to any other math, science or engineering professionals who may be interested in judging.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tara Kerr at 718-254-7251 or by email at Tara.Kerr@mail.cuny.edu. We hope to see you at NYCSEF and appreciate your support.

Hey guys...here's my first piece as a contributor over at xojane.com. It's about my latest visit to New York Comic Con, and how it got me thinking about how I've always been a Sci Fi fan...

Great read... I sometimes. Being a brother from the inner city... I get looks like that too. One day I'm sitting eating lunch with some local photographers, and one guy (wearing a top hat + beard, so I already knew he was Steampunk) started talking about Otakon and how much he loves it and shoots for anime mags. So the history of Otakon came up... and I mention how it started at Penn State. He vehemently denied it.. and hit me with "I've been to Otakon every year & I'm in to anime", which in my mind translate to "Your Black... you don't know about this..". I laughed and continued my lunch. He saw the loose fitting clothes, hat turned backwards and thought I was merely your run of the mill "homeboy", but I have and always will be a "Blerd".

FYI: If your very 1st contact w/me on Google+, and we have never interacted anywhere else and I don't know you from Doogie Howser, is to tag me in propaganda/promotion of any kind, religious, commercial, etc. Then you add me? Blocked. Period.

That is what I call SPAM.

It is only common courtesy to only tag people in posts that are relevant to them. I actually feel like I'm being intrusive when I tag specific people.
