Prof. A's Science Fix- February 22nd Edition

Dear readers of the Science Fix: real life is interfering with my online life in a big way (but in a good way) and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to write this blog in a timely fashion. I’m hoping to be able to still post a Science Fix at least a couple of times a month, but I may not be able to do in the future, because…

I dedicate this blog post to all animal lovers, to those of us perpetually fascinated by the animal kingdom, especially other fellow vertebrates, and even more specially mammals and birds. This blog is a critter edition: we have necking giraffes, killer cats, co-evolving dogs, blind mole rats showcasing evolution in action, pigeon DNA, smart dolphins, and more! Sorry…

Prof. A's Science Fix- November 16 2012 Edition

This edition will be an all-biology edition. I have been unable to keep up with general science news and blog writing as I would like to do, but fortunately, the “obstacle” was actually doing science so I’m not complaining. Biology is my comfort zone and I can process information and write much faster if I stick to it. So you’re getting a Bio Fix today.  My apologies…

The extraordinary Uruguayan president, José Mujica

José "Pepe" Mujica, 77, is possibly the world's most atypical politician. He used to be an urban guerrilla fighter and spent 14 years in prison during the military dictatorship in the 70s, 80s. A few years after his release from prison (amnesty was granted to political prisoners after the dictatorship ended and democracy returned), he was elected to Congress and then became a member of the Uruguayan Senate. He has been President since 2010 (Uruguay has 5 year Presidential terms). He does not…

Prof. A's Science Fix- October 19 2012 Edition

I’m trying something different for this blog. Normally I highlight a combination of science news or studies that I pick from within our site, and others that were not posted on our site, but that I find interesting. For this edition, I’m highlighting only news and studies from outside our site, and the blog will also be shorter. The reasons I’m doing this are: 1)…
