Late Wednesday evening, a terrible disaster began to unfold in the ScienceBlogs universe: word emerged that a zombie attack was taking place in our bloggers’ homes. While the attack was believed to have begun somewhere in the southeastern United States, with patient zero Scicurious, it has now spread across the continent and even as far…

We here at ScienceBlogs are pleased to announce that beginning today, we will be helping to spark the next generation of research communications by introducing new blogs to our network from the world’s top scientific institutions. The initial list includes: CERN, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), SETI Institute, Weizmann Institute of Science, and Brookhaven National…

Do you have a burning question to put to the ScienceBlogs bloggers? Perhaps it’s ethical – should companies be able to patent specific genes? Should primates have the same rights in laboratory settings as humans? Maybe it’s silly – would you rather pet a dinosaur, or shake hands with a Neanderthal? Or maybe you’re just…

When we think of our planet’s water, we usually think of the vast saltwater oceans that contain 97 percent of it. But the other three percent is equally important to ecosystems and to life as we know it: freshwater found above ground in lakes, rivers, and ponds, and underground in aquifers and streams.

The 2010 Pi Day Bake-Off was such a smashing success that it would be a challenge for even the most extreme pie enthusiast to fairly judge all 35 entries. So we’ve gone ahead and narrowed it down for you to what we hope you will agree are ten very deserving finalists. We based our choices…

A Pie in the Sky

We’re running out of pie references to use here, so bear with us. In this post we have a Chicken Tikka Masala pie from Duchess Shiraz, a classic Apple Pi pie from Kate Gaudry, a Stuffed Mac & Cheese Pie with 4-Herb Crust and an Avocado’s Number Pie from Veronica Vadakan, and a Cookie Cake…

Happy Pi Day! And More Pie

Well, it is finally Pi Day—mathematicians and scientists rejoice! The number of pies in our inbox doubled overnight, and we woke up to a virtual bakery’s worth of pastries. What did we find? We’ll have to break it into two posts… In the first we have Stephanie Patterson’s Corned Beef Hash pie and Blueberry Cherry…

The Pies are Piling Up

As the deadline for the 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off approaches, the entries are stacking up. In addition to the pies we’ve already posted here on Page 3.14, three of our own ScienceBloggers have thrown their hats in the ring. It’s a good thing we don’t actually have the pies here at ScienceBlogs headquarters to…

Either we set our oven temperature too high or the competition is heating up here in the 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off. Yesterday we posted Annie Wang’s Archi-meaty pie, Leigh’s Rabbiteye Blueberry Pie, and Stephanie’s “Grown-Up” S’mores Pie with Guinness, and ScienceBloggers James Hrynyshyn and Pamela Ronald posted their own Strawbarb and Swiss chard-Gruyere pies,…

The first entries in the ScienceBlogs/Serious Eats 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off are starting to roll in, and it already looks like its going to be difficult to choose come voting day. We probably shouldn’t be writing this post at lunchtime, but here we go anyway with the first three pies: First, from Annie Wang…
