Tesla is the best car Consumer Reports has ever tested. 
After reading the Elon Musk biography by Ashlee Vance, I have much more appreciation for Musk's vision for electric cars and space travel. This rating by CR does not surprise me.

For the kids and kids at heart!
From artistic Ankylosaurus to zany Zygosaurus, Mammoth is Mopey is an alphabetical celebration of prehistoric life. Each whimsical illustration is accompanied by a pronunciation key and information about where and when the animal lived. No matter the reader’s age, Mammoth is Mopey is a great introduction to the astounding diversity of prehistoric life. For dedicated paleontology enthusiasts who already know the animals, it’s a fun way to see some “prehistoric deep cuts” in fanciful cartoon form.

Nice!! Time to make my smart phone smarter!

The Royal Society of Chemistry have produced a nice new (and free!) Periodic Table app for both Apple and Android devices, which showcases images, properties, and trends of the elements.
It's available here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1019468967 (Apple) or here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.rsc.periodictable&hl=en (android).

Some professional scientists are sniffy about the role of amateurs, but as an increasing number of academic papers makes clear, the results can be valuable and can help both to generate data and to inform policy.

Help The Manx Cat Genome Project fund a project to sequence the genome of 3 manx cats! 
#caturdayeveryday  
We want to investigate the genomes to answer these questions:
In addition to the tailless gene, which mutations are unique to the Manx cat? 
Which other genes are involved in Manx Syndrome?
What is the genetic basis for some Manx cats having a rumpy tail, some having a stumpy tail and some a longie tail? This isn't currently explained fully by the known mutations in the tailless gene.
In the individual cats we sequence, can we find any genetic basis for any health problems they have?

This technique IS quite revolutionary. I taught my genomics students about it this summer. I am not surprised by this influx of money at all. It is worth the money to invest in it.
We biologists will look on CRISPR-Cas9 much in the same way we do PCR, as an indispensable tool.
And, for sure, a Nobel will come from this.
