Notes for March 17th

  • This demonstration of being able to construct really, really tiny objects is actually sort of intimidating.  
  • All about the history of measles...really interesting stuff.  (via the Loom)
  • Interesting discussion about how 'restoring' a natural habitat actually caused an endangered lizard to further decline.  
  • Pepsi is pulling sugary beverages from schools all over the world.  I can't believe this is something we have to have the company commit to.  Why can't the individual schools recognize the needlessness of soft drinks.
  • You may think that because the environment tends to treat humans poorly, that the Arctic tundra is fairly tough.  In reality, the tundra is extraordinarily sensitive to disturbances.  Case in point.
