Joanne Manaster120,527Join 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!

Trump's NASA Budget Eliminates Education Office, Plunging America Into The Dark :'(
by +Ethan Siegel
“NASA’s Office of Education, in its current incarnation, oversees and administers around sixty different programs that benefit educators, K-12 students, as well as undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and researchers. With the Trump administration officially announcing their budget for the next fiscal year, they provide only $37 million for NASA’s Education Office, with one major stipulation: the office must be eliminated entirely.”
So, here we are, encountering one another on the internet. There’s a really good chance that this is because you have some interest in space, science, astronomy, astrophysics, or some related area.

Trump's NASA Budget Eliminates Education Office, Plunging America Into The Dark :'(

“NASA’s Office of Education, in its current incarnation, oversees and administers around sixty different programs that benefit educators, K-12 students, as well as undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and researchers. With the Trump administration officially announcing their budget for the next fiscal year, they provide only $37 million for NASA’s Education Office, with one major stipulation: the office must be eliminated entirely.”
So, here we are, encountering one another on the internet. There’s a really good chance that this is because you have some interest in space, science, astronomy, astrophysics, or some related area. Although I am an astrophysicist with a Ph,D. in theoretical physics, my focus over the past decade or so has been on education and public outreach: science communication. There’s an incredible Universe out there that we’re exploring, and the more we learn about it, the more effort we need to put into education and outreach if we want a society that’s with us on the cutting edge. That understands where we are and what we’re doing; that creates valuable opportunities for the next generation of scientists to participate and contribute to the enterprise of science.
So why, then, would we be okay with just eliminating NASA’s Office of Education? If we care about America, we won’t be. Read on.___

I read this book by Walter Isaacson on Einstein in 2008 or so and really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed his other books, The Innovators and, of course, Steve Jobs.

I decided to listen to the audio version ahead of going to the +Tribeca Film Festival to see the screening of the first scripted drama that will be airing on +National Geographic. Based on the book, it is directed by Opie, er, I mean, Ron Howard (you know, the guy who did Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind). I'm curious to see how he treats the material, after all, there are lots of shows about Einstein out there. Frankly, I'm expecting good things because I've been enjoying my listen these past few days. The show is called #Genius, (but, look, it's there on the photo below).
