Funny how these things happen

During the day I came across a couple more articles on Sea Turtles. The first one is “Cold-Stunned Green Sea Turtles Rescued Along Texas Coast” by Heather Carr at EcoScraps. With all the cold weather they’re having, that’s not a surprise unfortunately.

The other one is “Sea Turtles and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill” by Cutler Cleveland at the The Encyclopedia of Earth. This one however is man-made not mother nature.

As my thoughts turn to summer

While we are stuck here in winter in the midwest, this article on Loons took me to our family cabin that the kids and I enjoy each summer. It’s entitled “Will Gulf Oil Disaster Threaten Minnesota’s State Bird” by Dave Dempsey at  EcoLocalizer. I’m hoping not. Stay Tuned.

Four fish

As I’ve been reading the book Four Fish by Paul Greenberg, I was drawn to this article in the Wall Street Journal by Justin Scheck today entitled “Big Salmon Run Spawns Profits“.

Science fair 2011

As we’ve now started on my kids science fair projects, I thought I would a couple of articles. One on the Science Fair itself and one on the topic my daughter’s project idea, bees.

First up, this article entitlted “Obama’s Challenge: Can Science Fair Compete with the Super Bowl?” by Todd Frankel at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Go Science Fair!

With that said, I found this article last year to show that even 8 year olds (also my daughter’s age) can get published and contribute to the field of science. It’s entitled “8-Year-Olds Publish Scientific Bee Study” by Lisa Grossman over at Wired via American Scientist.

Way to go!
