Nicole Gugliucci19,829UPDATED First Ladies of Science CircleRemember that whole thing that happened a while ago when +Pamela Gay realized she was the only lady on the Science & Nature Suggested Users List? Well, not only were more women added as a result of our discussions (Thanks, Google!) but we put together a list or YOUR recommendations for your favorite ladies of science. These women do science, teach science, talk about science, or just plain LOVE science, and they share it with all of us here on Google+. Still missing you or one of your favorites? Let me know in the comments! 2013-02-27 04:41:0515610312

Fraser Cain136,858Super Science Circle - August 2012 EditionIt's time again for the latest edition of my Super Science Circle. If your stream is stale, import this shared circle and never want for knowledge again. And if anyone ever tells you Google+ is a ghost town, point them at this circle and demand they import it.Please reshare this list, to help it spread wide and far. Do it! For Science!If you're interested in my criteria, the circle contains:1. People active on Google+2. People who often post about science.I highly recommend that you import these people into a test circle and then evaluate them over the next month. Move over the people who really delight you to a more permanent circle. Then replace the test circle next month, when I share it again.If you know anyone who should be included in this list, please let me know. #sciencesunday   #evang+  2012-08-20 19:42:04434168405580

Fraser Cain125,463Super Science Circle - July 2012 EditionHi everyone, it's time for the July 2012 Edition of my super science circle - and for #sciencesunday . If you're interested in sciency posts from interesting and active people, import this circle and you'll have a delightful stream.Please share this circle... for Science!I've added a handful of people, removed a few, and generally cleaned things up.I'm always looking for more people to add to this circle. People who:1. Are active, posting at least a couple of times a week. But not too active to overwhelm the stream.2. Post regularly about science. Not exclusively, but regularly.If you think you should be in this circle, just post your info in the comments below. As always, I recommend that you import these people into a temporary circle and try them on for size. Only move people to your permanent circles if you want to keep following them. 2012-07-08 20:59:084165476124

Fraser Cain120,480Super Science Circle - June 2012 editionPlease reshare this circle... for Science!Just in time for summer reading, I offer you the latest edition of my Super Science Circle. This list contains almost 400 users of Google+ who are active and post science topics. I have personally evaluated everyone in this list, and made sure they meet my exacting criteria - I think you'll find they're a fantastic addition to any circle collection.As always, I suggest that you import these people into a fresh circle. Then evaluate them for a bit. Move your favorites over to more permanent circles.And I'm always looking for people to add to the list. If you post to Google+ at least a few times a week, and include a lot of science-oriented posts, please let me know and I'll add you for the future.P.S. I was really glad to find that very few people had gone inactive this time around. People are really getting active and engaged - definitely not a ghost town.P.P.S. A big thanks to +Science on Google+: A Public Database for gathering together a large number of science-oriented people. I was able to add about 100 people to my list.2012-06-16 01:22:0239664130109

Buddhini Samarasinghe10,097STEM Women on G+ Shared CircleThis is the first crowd-sourced, collaboratively curated circle of Women who work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields that are also active on G+. We had some simple criteria for inclusion in this circle; every woman in this circle has a job that relates directly to STEM or is an advanced student of STEM. They are all active users of G+ and post Publicly about their STEM discipline regularly (i.e. at least once a week). • Import these people into a brand new circle, and then move people over into your permanent circles if you like what they post.• Reshare this post, to get the STEM goodness out to as many as people as possible :)• If we have missed someone that should be included in this circle in time for our next update, please nominate them at http://goo.gl/rvKEf. We will be actively curating this circle once a month or so, removing inactive users, adding new active users, so consider this a work in progress :) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------This circle is curated by +Buddhini Samarasinghe, +Rajini Rao, +Liz Krane, +Liz ℚuilty and +Christine Paluch. A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this crowd-sourced effort by sharing the original post and by nominating people for it - this wouldn't have been possible without you!2012-03-14 04:08:191452712860

A recent study suggested feminine role models might discourage girls in science. I think it misses the point.

New +The Finch & Pea song of the week!

“Plants and Animals rock so hard, they end up overloading all the scientists’ fancy equipment“

That’s a pretty accurate description of the video for Plants and Animals‘ satisfying, pared-down anthem Lightshow. The Montreal-based trio go about rocking under controlled conditions while they are observed by two researchers. Every sound creates a digital graphic output while the lab-coated scientists struggle to tune a classic cathode-ray tube oscilloscope in the control room. In the end...

Wednesday marked the 60th Anniversary of the Moondog Coronation Ball, widely seen as the first rock and roll show. In celebrating the anniversary, the first thing I thought of was biological classification and a Guided by Voices song. You too, right?

Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the first Rock and Roll show with…Guided by Voices

http://thefinchandpea.com/2012/03/23/celebrating-the-60th-anniversary-of-the-first-rock-and-roll-show-with-guided-by-voices/

Nearly 20, 000 people were beating on the doors of a venue that would hold less than 10, 000 shouting “Let us in!” Tickets for the second night had all been printed with the same date as the first. The police waded into the crowd and ordered the opening act, Paul “Huckerbuckers” Williams to stop shortly after he began. A man was stabbed as the confused crowd dispersed. On the surface, The Moondog Coronation Ball, March 21, 1952 in Cleveland, was a total disaster.___Wednesday marked the 60th Anniversary of the Moondog Coronation Ball, widely seen as the first rock and roll show.

+Janet D. Stemwedel's great post questioning the motivation of science kits for girls reminds me of my Grade 11 spring break. I loved science in high school (obviously I still do) and wanted to participate in an internship or lab experience during school break. When I went to the guidance office, the only science opportunity was advertised with pink and purple butterflies and said something like "Finally, science just for girls! Come learn about the science of your life. Make lip balm and perfume and learn about the science of beauty products." I said (out loud if I recall), "Oh god, that sounds awful". I spent the break on a political internship and met the Prime Minister instead. Pretty sure it was a net gain. (via +Bora Zivkovic)

As part of my job as a Research Ethics Board member, I was reviewing and analyzing some of the new Canadian research ethics policy document yesterday. It is the policy that guides the ethics boards at all Canadian institutions that receive federal money for research with human participants. Whenever I work with the document I am pleased by how much of it endeavors not only to protect research participants from harm but also to protect researchers and support the research process. For example:

"Where social sciences or humanities researchers seek knowledge that critiques or challenges the policies and practices of institutions, governments, interest groups or corporations, researchers do not need to seek the organization’s permission to proceed with the proposed research. If institutional approval were required, it is unlikely that research could be conducted effectively on such matters asi... more »

My computer was in sick bay all week, so I just realized that I hadn't shared a couple of recent posts here. Here's the first:

A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Flagstaff for my first meeting of the National Association of Science Writers. It was a terrific conference. As a new member though, and one who doesn't necessarily fit the usual profile, I partly used the conference to develop my understanding of what it means to be a science writer today. This post describes what I learned while rafting through the Glen Canyon with science writers.

Loved this week's Science-Art Scumble, especially this paleo themed piece by a teen artist. Thoughtful, sciency and beautifully executed. Cool stuff.

There is so much to love about the idea of Family Science Night. Here is a lovely description by +Mariette DiChristina-Gerosa about one recently co-hosted by Scientific American, the New York Academy of Sciences and the Children's Aid Society.

This is a fascinating example of the way that blog writing gives us a window into scientific discussions that might have otherwise not have been seen publicly. Scientific American bloggers +Kathryn Clancy and Sci Curious recently paired up to post critical responses to a research paper claiming that estrogen levels and maternal desires are related. Today, the first author of the paper used the SciAm Guest Blog to respond. Kate and Sci and +Emily Willingham have taken the discussion even further in the comments. A very interesting read!

I've decided to revisit (and resurrect) my Tumblr series of quotes and advice from early science education textbooks with two great excerpts from the 1950s: one stressing the importance of matching science teaching with assessment and another reminding us of the value of authentic scientific experiences. It's sometimes surprising how contemporary and insightful these lessons still are.

This is a fantastic conference for anyone interested in communicating about science in online media.

Yes, ScienceOnline now has a Facebook page. Thank you +Emily Finke for setting it up. Please "Like" it - that is another way to stay updated on this, if I can say so, most awesome conference!___This is a fantastic conference for anyone interested in communicating about science in online media.

I really enjoyed this creative and touching post by +Christie Wilcox: the painful feelings of rejection that we all know, interwoven with scientific explanations.

Jane Goodall was the keynote speaker today at the Alberta Teachers Association Science Council Conference. While much of the speech seemed cobbled together from other talks, I was moved by her stories of her mother's encouragement of her interest in science, asking her always to explain her interest in animals rather than scolding her for bringing them home or staying out late to observe them. Seems to me like the exact right way to approach an interested child.

This is sure to be an excellent interview with science writer +Carl Zimmer about his new book A Planet of Viruses. I'm hoping I can make it to the chat during the live recording.

Had a great time last night presenting a 5 minute Ignite talk at the National Association of Science Writers meeting, sharing advice I've gotten from 10 and 11 year olds about writing science well. I knew I couldn't go wrong by sharing quotes from smart and insightful kids!

To go along with my post about children's picture books, I also interviewed author Daniel Loxton about how he created the beautiful dinosaur images in Ankylosaur Attack. He shared some very cool pictures with me to show the process.
