1) Sorry for the recent Scientopia outages! There are some technical problems with a n00b like myself does not understand. But we're back now! I posted my Friday Weird Science over at Scientific American, where you can read about what happens if you eat too many carrots (really!).
2) Due to recent events going on personally and professionally, I will be cutting back on blogging to two posts per week for the next two months. I will post Tuesdays at SciAm and Fridays (of course!) here. I'm sorry about this and I hate to reduce your delicious science diets, but it's got to be done. I hope to be back and running full steam ahead sometime in November. Thanks for your patience.
