Joanne Manaster120,746Join 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!

"At the end of the two years, which is pretty long for a weight loss study, those without access to the wearable technology lost an average of 13 pounds. Those with the wearable tech lost an average of 7.7 pounds."

"They don’t seem to hurt, though. Other than costing money, there’s no harm in seeing if it might improve your activity over time. But if your goal is weight loss, then you might think twice about using such a device. The evidence suggests that you may do better without one."

Thought teachers here might be interested in these #DarwinDay resources from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.
The books are 60% off but you can download the PDFs for free.

We’re celebrating Charles Darwin’s 208th birthday today! Evolution is the central unifying theme of biology, and Darwin’s work continues to impact the scientific process today. Our books help to communicate the science of evolution in the classroom and in public discussion.___Thought teachers here might be interested in these #DarwinDay resources from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

OMG.
Seriously.
"In 2015, in a moment of science communication genius, NASA created a mission called “OMG.” The acronym basically ensured that a new scientific mission — measuring how quickly the Oceans are Melting Greenland — would get maximum press attention."

I'd like to share some books I've enjoyed over the past few weeks. None are science based, but overall worthwhile nonetheless.

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Listen to this one on audio! Hard to believe his life was this crazy! http://amzn.to/2kPLZFa (Probably my favorite on this list for sheer enjoyment).

Bellevue by David Oshinsky. I learned about the hospital, some history of medicine & health care and also of NYC. http://amzn.to/2kPDA4M (This is the closest one on this list to being science-themed).

The Pivot by Kurt Campbell. Straightforward explanation of the historical, current and future issues in America/Pan-Asian relationships. http://amzn.to/2lwgK15

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. Recommended by everyone, now including me. A twist on the usual narratives we hear. http://amzn.to/2kPLLhp

Idiot America by Charles P. Pierce. Seemingly more pertinent now than in 2009, it's original publication date. http://amzn.to/2l1vfgs

The Girl Who Drank the Moon. A 2017 Newbery winner. A fanciful & beautifully told YA story. http://amzn.to/2lrKYGz

Jacques Monod (9 February 1910 – 31 May 1976), a French biochemist, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1965 "for their discoveries concerning genetic control of enzyme and virus synthesis". Monod became famous for his work on the E. coli lac operon, which encodes proteins necessary for the transport and breakdown of the sugar lactose (lac). Study of the control of expression of genes in the lac operon provided the first example of a transcriptional regulation system. He was a highly complex personality, the totality of the scientific ideas and experimental results of his career form an immense theoretical edifice.He was also a musician, a writer, an administrator and politician, and a philosopher.

Scientists from the Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS) — an interdisciplinary group sponsored by NASA — assembled the video from seven years’ worth of direct observations of the planets at the Keck Observatory in Hawaii.

(You can only see incomplete orbits in the video. NASA’s astrobiology blog explains that it would take 40 years’ worth of observations to see even one planet in this image complete a full orbit.)
