It’s an embarrassment of riches on ScienceBlogs today. Below, your quick guide to a few of the posts that are making us feel so flush.
- Benjamin Cohen at The World’s Fair links to an article about the portrayal of physicists in film, and talks up the Society for Arts, Literature, and Science, which is planning an interesting annual meeting in NYC in November (the theme is “Evolution: Biological, Cultural, and Cosmic”).
- On the subject of The World’s Fair (those guys are on fire), the third and final clue to the Puzzle Fantastica #1 is up. Shelley has posted an intriguing bid for a solution the puzzle at Retrospectacle–the first, to my knowledge.
- Good Math, Bad Math opines on whether or not mathematicians are especially qualified to talk about evolution.
- “Just for yonks,” Steinn at Dynamics of Cats has made his own graph plotting bird flu cases and bird flu deaths against time. (He got his data from the WHO.) It is one hell of a steep curve.
- At Doc Bushwell’s Chimpanzee Refuge, Kevin Beck posts Heavy Hitters, Part 5, the fifth and last in Doc Bushwell’s phenomenal series about fat acceptance.
- Chris Mooney at The Intersection attempts to set the record straight about Bush’s intentions regarding stem cell research.
- And finally, A Blog Around the Clock reports on Ingeo, a fabric made of genetically engineered corn.
