Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2014-10-22 01:37
Photograph by Marilyn Susek. Photography contest, Honorable Mention. Aeshna cyanea – southern hawker. Beginning this week, we will run photographs every other Monday, so no picture next week; we no longer have enough honorable mentions and other miscellaneous photographs to continue posting a photograph every week.

Case Western steps up, rejects House Bill 597

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2014-10-16 05:49
As I noted a few weeks ago (see here and here), Ohio House Bill 579 cuts the guts out of science education in the public schools by emphasizing “scientific knowledge” and eliminating the teaching of “science processes”. As I argued, the process of science is central to how one justifies claims about the world in science, and eliminating reference to those processes eviscerates science education. The Faculty Senate of Case Western Reserve University agrees. It... Richard B. Hoppe

Larus delawarensis

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2014-10-16 05:49
Larus delawarensis – ring-billed gull, Boulder, Colorado. There is right now a fairly large flock at Walden Ponds east of Boulder. They are too far away to get a picture, unless you like snapshots of an array of gray-and-white ellipses. But this one very kindly landed in a parking lot and posed long enough to enable this portrait.... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
