|Joanne Manaster||116,528||Join Joanne Manaster and @104733415626297507218 as we welcome @113253012514597335585 author of the NYT bestselling book, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of #Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. This hour long hangout will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6:30pm EDT/5:30pm CDT/3:30pm PDT From the hardcover edition: A groundbreaking book that upends conventional thinking about autism and suggests a broader model for acceptance, understanding, and full participation in society for people who think differently. What is autism? A lifelong disability, or a naturally occurring form of cognitive difference akin to certain forms of genius? In truth, it is all of these things and more—and the future of our society depends on our understanding it. WIRED reporter Steve Silberman unearths the secret history of autism, long suppressed by the same clinicians who became famous for discovering it, and finds surprising answers to the crucial question of why the number of diagnoses has soared in recent years. Going back to the earliest days of autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades, Silberman provides long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle, while mapping out a path for our society toward a more humane world in which people with learning differences and those who love them have access to the resources they need to live happier, healthier, more secure, and more meaningful lives. Along the way, he reveals the untold story of Hans Asperger, the father of Asperger’s syndrome, whose “little professors” were targeted by the darkest social-engineering experiment in human history; exposes the covert campaign by child psychiatrist Leo Kanner to suppress knowledge of the autism spectrum for fifty years; and casts light on the growing movement of "neurodiversity" activists seeking respect, support, technological innovation, accommodations in the workplace and in education, and the right to self-determination for those with cognitive differences.||Read Science!

Where did all of Mars’ carbon go? A new paper offers an explanation of the “mission” carbon. This paper suggests that 3.8 billion years ago, Mars might have had a moderately dense atmosphere. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1PNewa3

On this day, 41 years ago, the fossil of Australopithecus afarensis known as 'Lucy' was discovered. Today's Google Doodle (https://www.google.com/) celebrates the discovery. That image, called "March of Progress", is inspired by a creation of former Peabody artist Rudy Zallinger.

"For yesterday’s students, human evolution was a few illustrated fossils in a textbook. Today, students are browsing actual genome data to see our relationships to other creatures. They can browse Neandertal and Denisovan genomes. Teachers are printing 3-D casts from fossil data."

Flexible enough to vibrate, but tough enough to withstand smacking together over a hundred times per second. If our whole bodies were subjected to an equivalent force, we’d be ripped apart.Now, for the first time, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have grown this superhero-like tissue in the lab, using human vocal cord cells as their raw ingredients. Their hope is to one day implant these engineered vocal cords into patients so they can recover their voices.The new technology is nowhere near-ready for use in the clinic, but the idea might not be completely far-fetched: these tissues are both strong and stretchy enough to produce sound.

As a side project, I helped edit this beginning English reading book! If you know someone just starting with English, let them know about it. I think the stories are clever and the drawings are quite good. The primary target is a Brazilian audience, but I think it would work for any beginner of English.

I was hoping to see Lisa Randall in Chicago on November 10th, but my great aunt passed away today at age 97 (a good, long, joyous life) and I will instead be many hours in the opposite direction of Chicago at the funeral. So, as much as I wanted to share about her talk online, I'll simply summarize that I am really enjoying her new book, and you should, too!

I am currently in charge of a non-majors biology class. We ask them to reference websites to back up their arguments. Unfortunately, some students are referencing Natural News and Mercola.
I want to make a list of sites that are anti-science and should be avoided. Here's a start at this link. Do you have other suggestions?
It can be beyond biology.
oh yeah, I should add Food Babe.
