Just some quick notes, to fill my quota give you some interesting reading: 1) Scientific American has a great article online about why it's important to vaccinate, and how to talk to parents about it. [via George Valenzuela] 2) Speaking of which, the Autism Science Foundation -- a non-profit that supports real research into autism, instead of trying to link it to vaccines despite all the evidence -- was chosen as the number 1 startup charity in the "Disabilities" category by Philanthropedia/Guidestar. Congrats to them! [via Dawn Crawford] 3) The Discovery Institute isn't completely honest? Unpossible! 4) Bill Nye helps create a sundial at Cornell University that glows when the Sun reaches its daily peak in the sky. [via Beth Quittman (my agent!)] 5) Frying pans that look like planets. Seriously. Very cool.
