Standard

The author of the infamous Carreira letter just became the Editor-in-Chief of the flagship journal of the American Chemical Society. (This month, he issued another nonpology. He says he regrets writing it. I sure bet he does!)

An American teenager who doesn’t speak Scots wrote many of the Scots Wikipedia entries. Now Wikipedians are figuring out what to do.

It took divorce to make my marriage equal.

College leaders should have seen this coming. (Well, I think they did see it coming, because we painted them a very clear picture, but anyhow, this spells the situation out pretty well.)

How Big Oil tricked people into thinking that plastics could be recycled.

Was it a good idea for Scientific American to endorse a political candidate? (Here’s the endorsement, by the way.)

“No hot pants” and apparently no leggings either, when you are on a research vessel heading to the Arctic? And some people still genuinely wonder why we still have gender equity problems?

You are about to be entrapped or burned over by a wildfire: What are your survival options?” It’s good idea to know what to do before it happens and you don’t have the literature handy.
