As U.S. Climate Changes, White House Embraces the Science Like Never Before

"The White House has just released its new National Climate Assessment (NCA), and its central scientific message will be familiar to climate scientists and the White House press corps. Climate impacts are already apparent in the United States, they are likely to worsen, and communities should begin factoring climate change into all kinds of decisions. From Hawaii to Maine, from the fishing industry to manufacturing, the report’s 30 chapters emphasize that “evidence of human-induced climate change continues to strengthen and that impacts are increasing across the country.”

Now you will have to worry when you hear the words you have always dreamed of, "Mom, can I mow the grass???"

Fairy tales and more fairy tales. [in response to a mother who wanted her son to become a scientist and asked Einstein what reading material to give him]
Found in Montana Libraries: Volumes 8-14 (1954), p. http://books.google.com/books?id=PpwaAAAAMAAJ&q=%22more+fairy+tales%22#search_anchor . The story is given as follows: "In the current New Mexico Library Bulletin, Elizabeth Margulis tells a story of a woman who was a personal friend of the late dean of scientists, Dr. Albert Einstein. Motivated partly by her admiration for him, she held hopes that her son might become a scientist. One day she asked Dr. Einstein's advice about the kind of reading that would best prepare the child for this career. To her surprise, the scientist recommended 'Fairy tales and more fairy tales.' The mother protested that she was really serious about this and she wanted a serious answer; but Dr. Einstein persisted, adding that creative imagination is the essential element in the intellectual equipment of the true scientist, and that fairy tales are the childhood stimulus to this quality." However, it is unclear from this description whether Margulis heard this story personally from the woman who had supposedly had this discussion with Einstein, and the relevant issue of the New Mexico Library Bulletin does not appear to be online.

Dyslexia Font

I doubt there are a lot of Dyslexics on G+, but maybe you know some in Real Life.  I've seen a few fads come and go over the years trying to help them read - don't know if this will stick or not but it looks quite promising:

Please Share Publicly - You don't know who has you circled that might benefit from this...

Maybe I'm just not used to it (I am not dyslexic), but it's driving my OCD nuts trying to get all that bottom heavy ink lifted back up where it belongs, or feeling the need to clean the gunked up ink out of the typewriter strike heads with the little brush. ;-)
