Merry Christmas to the wolves

It appears that the wolves in Michigan, Minnesota (my adopted home state) and Wisconsin have won a reprieve. This according to the article “Christmas Gift for Gray Wolves in Three States” by Alicia Graf over at the Environmental News Network.

Merry Christmas!

Science center (and museum) starter

As someone who lives near both a science center and museum here in St. Louis, I think it’s great.

Baltic Sea

Ever since my trip to Latvia, I have always had fondness for the Baltic region. A few years later I even did a paper on the Baltic Crusades.
