I’ve been accumulating various stories and other links for a while, meaning to write a post on each one. Normally these aren’t really worth a whole post, so I’m going to start combining them.
- Does global warming boost hurricanes? – A review of Chris Mooney’s Storm World
- Urban Cyclists’ Threat Guide: A review of hazards to cyclists in New York City. Pretty applicable to riding a bike in other cities, and a fun read.
- SciVee: Scientific videos alongside papers
- How to innovate like google: How to encourage yourself and others to be creative in their work.
- Managing health care costs without a group plan: I looked into this when I was a grad student at Tulane, and it was very difficult to get decent insurance coverage at a reasonable rate.
- How to become a vegetarian, the easy way: With reasons! I’m not going to tell you that you should become vegetarian, but if you’re curious about it, this post is a good place to start.
- Intelligence and Achievement: by Rafe Champion on Catallaxy. Discusses research on how intelligence of various kinds does or does not relate to achievement (outside of academia).
- The Funeral Speech of Pericles: quoted by Rafe Champion on Catallaxy
- Names: I said before that if you don’t remember someone’s name, just ask. If it’s as bad as in this comic though, you’re in big trouble.
That’s it for now!
