Metaconglomerate rock

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2016-03-31 13:12
Photograph by Dan Phelps. Metaconglomerate rock (commercially known as marinace; if anyone knows why, please comment below). Mr. Phelps writes: I originally became interested in this rock after reading this blog post. The material was hard to find in small quantities, but I found a company that sells interesting rock slabs to use as cutting boards. If you notice, my slab has handles, which I will probably remove. The rock is actually a metaconglomerate from... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

New Federal education law deserves a closer look from those interested in science education

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2016-03-31 13:12
By Gaythia Weis. I want to call attention to the newly enacted legislation, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which relinquishes Federal control over many aspects of the education of our nation’s children. In so doing, this law may enable religious activists to exert their influence to a greater extent than previously possible. I need not remind readers of The Panda’s Thumb of the manner in which creationists attempt to subvert the public education system... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Mr. Phelps has sent his press release... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
