Obama-Romney Science Cage Fight!

I never get enough of the presidential candidates talking about science and science policy. Unless they’re talking about evolution vs. creation in public school science classrooms or the finer points of when a woman is pregnant (now as early as two weeks before conception occurs!), science and science policy are not frequently discussed.

A Concerned Zombie’s Guide to Election 2012

The 2012 presidential election has been slightly less dramatic than its 2008 counterpart.  This round, rather than being total open season for both parties, we have an incumbent on one side and a gaggle of out of touch old white men on the other.

Ask an Amateur Scientist:

Geeks for Obama #2: You Can’t Stop the Signal

by Teresa Jusino

Malcolm Reynolds needed a warrior, a pilot, a mechanic, a companion, a doctor, a psychic, and a priest in order to expose the evil of the Alliance.

Teams are important. And so, before we can do anything, we need to build a team – a network of people who are willing to work, willing to reach out to the geeks of America and say Hey!
