+Maximum Soler oh and do please learn how to spell correctly.
Just reading your post makes me annoyed that such a poorly educated person wants to tell everyone what and how they should think.
The most amusing thing is that you use the products of science and reason to argue for the existence of a fantasy about a zombie!

The news isn't all negative. Here's where the U. S. is exceptional: the U.S. remains in first place for the number of incarcerated citizens per capita, adult onset diabetes and for believing in angels.
From access to healthcare and education, gender equality, attitudes toward immigrants and minorities, the U.S. looks like a second-rate nation.

I would be maintaining the production plants down there that were up here lol! The contractors that showed me pictures of their work in Mexico tell me many exciting stories. From what I hear business is booming down there... but the wage divide is huge.

Good advice from Apple. Let the deniers just go buy any dirty old oil stock they want. Perhaps one that's had a major oil spill somewhere.

The fatal effects of "austerity"

Austerity was brainless and spiteful approach from the very outset imho.

Are you amazed, like me, that Duck Dynasty is the most-watched nonfiction cable show in TV history? Are you dismayed, like me, that crappy Hollywood films about comic book heroes and defunct TV shows have taken over every movie theater? Are you depressed, like me, that symphony orchestras are declaring bankruptcy, but Justin Bieber earned $58 million last year?

Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are like giant funnels that collect all this kind of stuff...

El Niño usually means more winter rain in California. Good. We need it.

If the Internet is having this effect, it's one of the Internet's  best consequences. Now we just need a faster Internet to make this happen faster.

Belief is distinct from faith. I have found that I can have faith without religion because faith allows me to be open to new information. Belief does not.

The problem is, often times, if you want quality food or less common ingredients, most of the stores that have them also cater, somewhat, to the gullible, hippy side of the liberal crowd. Certainly still rather shop there than Wal-Mart, no matter how much eye rolling I have to do when browsing the goods.

Introduction
I'm a science writer interested in most fields of science, and exploring how to make better use of the online environment for providing scientific information to a curious, engaged, but not specialized audience.

I've done formal graduate work in mathematics and political science, learned a great deal of astrophysics independently, and learned much computer science through work experience. Also learned a smattering of cell and molecular biology along the way.

If you're interested in checking the sorts of things I write about, have a look at my blogs: Today's Science, Mathophilia, Science and Reason.

And besides those, I post stories from other sources about interesting science news at Science Briefs.

My stream will contain entries for new posts in these blogs (unless I forget to add them), along with other fairly random things.

New blog posts will also be noted on Facebook and Twitter - but I mostly use Google+, so very seldom interact on the others.

Random (other) things that interest me:

• Dogs
• Photography
• Politics
• Archaeology

Some music I like:

G Minor Fugue (Bach, BWV 578)
Mozart horn concertos
Finlandia (Sibelius)
Symphony No. 1, 1st movement (Brahms)
Appalachian Spring, Simple Gifts (Copland)
Marche Slave (Tchaikovsky)
Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven)
Symphony No. 7 (Beethoven)
Aida, Grand March (Verdi)
Ballades (Chopin)
Pictures at an Exhibition (Mussorgsky)
Cello Concerto No. 2 (Dvořák)
