Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682

Who wants a Google Inbox invite? I've been using it part-time about a week and definitely like it. Just wish it worked on Firefox. To get an invite (I have two available right now), just send me your Gmail address.

Just watched The Interview. It's funny, occasionally gross, and makes a pretty good point. To those who object to the killing of Kim Jong-Un in the the movie: it's almost incidental to the story. The real point (and I hope this isn't too much of a spoiler) isn't that Kim is killed; it's that he's exposed. If North Korea really did hack Sony, this would be why.

The best version of "Christmas in the Trenches" that I've heard.

This song is about something that really happened a hundred years ago. Singing "Christmas in the Trenches" at DFDF, and segueing into "Silent Night" in two languages, was a high point of my life.___The best version of "Christmas in the Trenches" that I've heard.

This one seems particularly egregious, as it gets the jurors to generate the answer "guilty" and bias their later deliberations.

One suggestion borrows from “Wheel of Fortune,” suggesting a slide that emulates the big board from the game show, leaving out a few key letters from the phrase “Defendant Is Guilty” and asking jurors to solve the puzzle.

Simulations of the entire nervous system of the c. elegans nematode’s 302 neurons took years… it’s complicated. But the mesh models are now good enough to upload into a LEGO robot and… it works! Well, partly.  "It is claimed that the robot behaved in ways that are similar to observed C. elegans. Stimulation of the nose stopped forward motion. Touching the anterior and posterior touch sensors made the robot move forward and back accordingly. Stimulating the food sensor made the robot move forward."  See the video. Remember this is not activity “programmed” in a classic sense. It “emerges” from the cellular rules of a natural organism.

In addition to making you feel like a problem, talking about the frequency of discrimination can increase its frequency.

In several experiments, Prof. Michelle Duguid of Washington University in St. Louis and Prof. Melissa Thomas-Hunt of the University of Virginia studied whether making people aware of bias would lessen it. They informed some people that stereotypes were rare and told others that stereotypes were common, then asked for their perceptions of women. Those who read that stereotypes were common rated women as significantly less career-oriented and more family-oriented. Even when instructed to “try to avoid thinking about others in such a manner,” people still viewed women more traditionally after reading that a vast majority held stereotypes.

Toy drive season is upon us. Have you considered donating a science kit, construction set or other science-related toy? These kinds of toys can make a big difference in kids' lives. They're also the kind of gift for older kids that organizations often don't have enough of.

I've started the Give the Gift of Science virtual toy drive (virtual because you can donate to any toy drive in your area and have it count) to promote these kinds of gifts. Or, if you'd rather not look for a drop-off box, go to http://www.amazon.com/todayshow and buy a science or technology toy for the TODAY toy drive. Then come back and tell us what you gave! #GivingTuesday #giftofscience

FTA: “Our lab works to identify salamanders as an influential part of the forest ecosystem and food chain,” said Ray Semlitsch, Curators Professor of Biological Sciences in the College of Arts and Science at MU. “Using the latest research methods, we calculated the population size of Southern Redback Salamanders in Ozark Forests and their value as a food source. We found that 1.88 billion salamanders inhabit one district of the Mark Twain National Forest alone, which is roughly 1,400 metric tons of biomass. For comparison, that’s equivalent to the biomass found in most whitetail deer in that region!... Our abundance models also take into account environmental factors,” Semlitsch said. “Factors such as date of collection, time since last rainfall, slope of the terrain and forest canopy cover are plugged into the model to help predict variation in the surface population over time;that’s what... more »

The hidden biodiversity of amphibians is something we don’t generally consider; we forget that salamanders are nocturnal and mostly unobserved. Therefore, I think most will be amazed at the quantities of food out there that we just don’t see.”

Fall is here - decked in golds and browns, reds and yellows - so rich and soft - yet, if you just look down and wait a moment, relax your eyes and open your mind - you will see another world beneath your feet.

Here - Chlorociboria aeruginascens - a tiny fungus known as the Green Elfcup or Woodcup - gleams - so delightfully, so magically, so impossibly blue - a treasure waiting among the leaves. 

I wonder what you might have found today in nature to delight your mind?

"We are not your father’s academy anymore."

Our analysis reveals that the experiences of young and midcareer women in math-intensive fields are, for the most part, similar to those of their male counterparts: They are more likely to receive hiring offers, are paid roughly the same (in 14 of 16 comparisons across the eight fields), are generally tenured and promoted at the same rate (except in economics), remain in their fields at roughly the same rate, have their grants funded and articles accepted as often and are about as satisfied with their jobs. Articles published by women are cited as often as those by men. In sum, with a few exceptions, the world of academic science in math-based fields today reflects gender fairness, rather than gender bias.___"We are not your father’s academy anymore."

I have hope for cinema, as I view some of the terrific short films of recent years. io9 now links you to one called “Ambition” that seems, at first, to be a whiney-mystical fantasy trip… but turns into a very moving paean to human optimism and science and belief in our future.

Best to learn it young.

We were invited to see a local farm the other day. So, I went with the kindergartners and what an unpleasant surprise! Thousands of cooped up chickens, pigs enclosed in spaces so small they could only stand and then lie back down and cows walking around in their own waste. The students enjoyed the outing but afterwards some of them said they no longer wanted to eat meat because they didn't like how the animals were treated. Small children are very sensitive to animal cruelty but we seem to become callous quickly as we grow.

Another thought that comes to mind is that there are no traditional farms in this area. And nobody has any memory of one either. Raising chickens, for example, with alternative methods is simply unthinkable around here and the fact that nobody does it explains this well.  ___Best to learn it young.

One of the many reasons why exclusion should always be questioned. The student's quote below seems downright creepy to me.

The interviewer asked Laura to describe her experience at an “all-female school” and to explain how that might be diminished “by having men there.” Laura answered, “We look around and we see only women, only people like us, leading every organization on campus, contributing to every class discussion.”

There is a real chance to expand energy access as fast as MNOs were able to expand mobile phone access. The vehicle for doing so, we believe, is a model called the distributed energy service company, or DESCO.

DESCOs don’t sell products for cash as a distributor of energy access products would. Rather, they install electricity-generating assets—such as a rooftop solar system or a connection to a microgrid—at dwellings and small businesses and then collect payments from customers. Those payments might occur on an ongoing basis (as in a lease model) or until a customer has effectively purchased an asset (as in a rent-to-own model). In any event, a DESCO operates much like a utility company.
