Marine biologists have found a grape-sized creature off the coast of the Bahamas. Lindsey Knapp, a rising Junior Biology major, reports that her research at Johns Hopkins University is going very well, and that she has not only learned lots of new lab techniques, but has gained insights into how science is done. Biology major Julia Owens worked with Dr. Paul Hyman to purify and identify bacteriophages, viruses that infect bacteria.
I hope that the science community takes this seriously and either refutes Monckton’s math or confirms it. The consequences to us either way are quite significant, and we need good sound science in to determine the correct course of action.

For science enthusiasts who are looking to further enrich their knowledge base, I highly recommend this magazine. Not only does Charles River employ our students and alumni, but their Human Resource staff lead career workshops for our science majors here on the AU campus and hosts tours of their facility. You will be surprised to learn how many different sub categories there are that fall within the Life Science field.
With generous funding from Regeneron, the Society has expanded the reach of Science News in High Schools to 4,000 additional public high schools and public charter schools. Five of those students had full-time jobs waiting for them at Charles River when they graduated this Spring, and one began a job this summer even though he will not graduate until December. Once, the greed of humans and the misuse of science reaches its epitome, all will be lost.
The solar system is a broad subject that will need to be narrowed before you will be able to come up with a hypothesis to test with your science fair project. That’s because Harvard Divinity School, where Cox teaches, has accepted an endowment from alumnus Richard T. Watson to create a Professorship of Science and Religion. Chances are that you will be able to do so, this is one science you need not worry too much about! Professor Tawse is the third AU Science faculty member selected for this award.
