I have been curating news for an app/website — www.inside.com/science. You can find the app on iTunes (please do, and recommend it, it’s great for news junkies).
Basically, I read articles and listen to podcasts about science and write about the pieces. I end up reading a lot about, well, science stuff and learn something every time. This is what I learned today…
Avoid the University of Colorado at Boulder. Apparently tranquilized bears are just falling out of the trees there.
Thinking about visiting Long Island? You probably should avoid that place, too. Not only are the beaches teeming with Portuguese Man-O’-Wars but dead whales keep washing ashore.
If you think something is wrong with you because you can’t feel as much empathy as you’d like when you read about thousands of people dying, don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s your biology. But if you are mean, be careful, you might be evil.
And that’s some of what I learned today.
