Good advice, from Annalee Newitz.
The big game, in the Big House.
The crowd always cheered in the stadium when the Slippery Rock score was announced. It’s a long-standing Michigan tradition.
…and the “Ebola Czar” didn’t show up?
I’d say it was about par for the course for this administration.
Can be reduced with Vitamin D?
News I can’t use, but perhaps some of my younger female readers can.
Seems to have very publicly resigned from the American Physical Society:
The global warming scam…is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist.
Come on, Prof. Don’t hold back. Tell us what you really think. Watch out for the lawsuits, though.
The opening ceremony is a (brief, presumably) literal space opera about a mission to Mars.

Pat Hynes paying tribute to the late Bill Gaubatz, who helped her get this conference started ten years ago, who died in July.
None of them are good, and all of them will be viewed by history as attributable to Obama’s desire to “end” rather than win the war in Iraq.

Finally, someone at NASA is willing to take the book seriously enough to critically review it. Obviously, I will respond at some point (TL;DR version, he cherry picks and ignores much of what I have to say, but that’s to be expected, given his NASA-centric viewpoint), but it’s a bad week between taxes and ISPCS. Anyway, despite my disagreement with the review itself, I’m sincerely grateful to Mr. Fodrocci for finally acknowledging the book’s existence, rather than (as much of the industry, including IAASS, has) pretending it doesn’t exist and hoping it will just go away.
Add this to the extensive annals of stupid things he’s said.
