Science reports that conservation NGOs are cutting science staff in an effort to direct resources to on-the-ground conservation efforts. (Subscription)
So fortunate to see the movie Particle Fever at the True/False Film Festival last weekend. While the movie is centered around turning on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and just happens to capture the measurement of the Higgs boson, the real fun was in watching an audience of non-scientists react to seeing how science works. Fabulous!
