Welcome to the August 2009 edition of Scientiae, the blog carnival of “stories of and from women in science, engineering, technology, and math.” [Apologies at the outset for missing the submission from ScienceWoman, co-blogger at Sciencewomen, entitled, "Unhurried summer mornings"] I’m honored to be the first man invited to host the carnival. The invitation means…

Well, a week has passed since I first issued a call for posts for the August Scientiae Carnival with the theme “Summer Days, Driftin’ Away.” Consider how you balance the demands and pleasures of this season.

Bora did indeed host the first edition of Praxis, the new blog carnival of academic life. However. The Praxis experimental carnival of “the experience of living the scientific” was established, founded, and…

Bora did indeed host the first edition of Praxis, the new blog carnival of academic life. However. The Praxis experimental carnival of “the experience of living the scientific” was established, founded, and otherwise continues to be…

Offer extended through Friday! Friday! Friday! 2 May!!!! Submit entries to tarheeltavern.abel at gmail. For the first time since I’ve lived here, the NC primary will actually matter especially given that Clinton and Obama appear to now be running neck-and-neck in PA. The Tar Heel Tavern was an early blog carnival, with contributions on numerous…

So says Dr Val Jones at Dr Val’s Revolution Health Blog, host of this week’s Grand Rounds medical blog carnival. The good doctor classified the posts as follows: [:-)] = A post that demonstrates literary excellence [{] = Early bird – an author who got his/her submission in early, which is really convenient for the…
