Listen to this interview of Melinda Baldwin about her book Making 'Nature': The History of a Scientific Journal (U Chicago Press, 2015). Melinda is AIP Endowed Professor in History of Natural Sciences at the University of Maryland. We talk about Nature, naturally. Melinda Baldwin : "Yes, I think it will be surprising to many scientists today that Nature has really been thoroughly shaped by the journal's contributors and readership, and certainly to the people who view Nature's editorial staff as these all-powerful gatekeepers of scientific success. But, I love the list you just gave of all the people who are involved in making a journal — the referees, the editors, the authors, the readers, the publishing executives — because that can really be one of the things that we lose sight of when discussing modern scholarly communication: The professional advancement of scientists is so heavily dependent on being published in these peer-reviewed journals, and according to where a scientist works, things like tenure, promotion, and even just getting hired can depend heavily on getting into a particular type of journal, a prestigious journal that rejects many submissions. And so it can seem like the power to shape scholarly communication is only in the hands of the editors and in the hands of the anonymous referees who review papers. But looking at the history of scientific publication, you really see a story where a lot more figures are influential in shaping the way that the scientific journal has developed. And you see that, of course, with Nature, where it was definitely contributors' needs and interests that drove some significant changes in the format and the audience of the journal."

At this week's Round Table, Inica and Madeline spoke with Bhawani Venkataraman, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chair and Departmental Faculty Advisor for Natural Sciences and Mathematics at The New School. Professor Venkataraman focuses on how chemistry can be made relevant to students and to issues of social justice and equity, and to how to get students thinking deeply and becoming informed voters—pretty cool, right? Connect macro with molecular with social Making sense of the world today requires integrating multiple disciplines, and so she strives to connect the molecular world with macro social issues. More specifically, Professor Venkataraman's work tackles challenges around safe drinking water. We all have an intimate relationship w water and know it is essential to keeping us alive but what is it about the properties of good old H2O that makes it so? Water dictates so much about public health, safety, educational opportunities and is a POWERFUL medium for exploring the interconnections of human existence yet we rarely examine its centrality to our way of life, until after a tragedy like Flint, Michigan occurs. Professor Venkataraman works to make the invisible, visible–and visceral! She encourages us not to look at individual issues discreetly but rather to connect dots and look at systems, and to always hold issues of justice and equity at the forefront. She has a book coming out in February that connects the chemistry of water to the policies and management issues around drinking water, a connection we found fascinating and think you will as well. Life cycles should be at the forefront of policy making, esp for vulnerable populations. As such, Professor Venkataraman's work also focuses on how best to communicate basic scientific research on issues such as water quality, air pollution, and climate change to non-scientists–something we non-scientists really appreciated.

Twentieth century existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre commented, “Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness and dies by chance.” And it's not too surprising how many of our contemporaries would agree. Last spring semester, Dr. Scott Olsson, Associate Professor of Mathematics and the Natural Sciences, enjoyed a sabbatical and, as is the rule for professors on sabbaticals at Wyoming Catholic College, he was asked to deliver a lecture presenting his sabbatical research and ruminations to the entire school. Thus in November, our monthly All-School Lecture featured Dr. Olsson speaking on “What is the World For?” It's our pleasure to share with you his thought-provoking tonic for our troubled era.

Notas. Inglés y Español ⬇️December 10: The greatness of God in the creation.Psalms 104:10-35:He sends the springs into the valleys; they flow among the hills. They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. By them the birds of the heavens have their home; they sing among the branches. He waters the hills from His upper chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works. He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man, that he may bring forth food from the earth, and wine that makes glad the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread which strengthens man's heart. The trees of the Lord are full of sap, the cedars of Lebanon which He planted, where the birds make their nests; the stork has her home in the fir trees. The high hills are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers. He appointed the moon for seasons; the sun knows its going down. You make darkness, and it is night, in which all the beasts of the forest creep about. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from God. When the sun rises, they gather together and lie down in their dens. Man goes out to his work and to his labor until the evening. O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions— this great and wide sea, in which are innumerable teeming things, living things both small and great. There the ships sail about; there is that Leviathan which You have made to play there. These all wait for You, that You may give them their food in due season. What You give them they gather in; You open Your hand, they are filled with good. You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and You renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works. He looks on the earth, and it trembles; He touches the hills, and they smoke. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. May my meditation be sweet to Him; I will be glad in the Lord. May sinners be consumed from the earth, and the wicked be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul! Praise the Lord!This is one of those psalms eloquently written exalting the Creator. If you read the entire psalm in detail, you will notice how the psalmist was looking at the way creation is connected to one another. He detailed how everything that has been formed has a specific purpose for living things to subsist on earth.It is wonderful to read the way the psalmist saw the heaven and earth established. How everything has its specific and perfect place: the springs, the mountains, the sea, etc. Also how animals are satiated and cared for by the Almighty.On the contrary, when God moves His hand to punish the earth, the creatures easily vanish.This is a very beautiful read, especially for those who like the subject of Natural Sciences or Biology. With this psalm we can see that the sciences were very advanced in ancient times. Many kings used their position to bring scientists of the time to their court and thus they too learned a lot about nature. For example, Solomon was one of them. And science, instead of denying God as some think, rather confirms that the ancestors were not wrong in declaring that only one Creator could have made all these things and they were not made from nothing. I hope this psalm has filled you with faith and trust in the One who made all these wonderful creations, and who is the same One who called you, chose you and your family to be in His presence.Consider this:Have you received any revelation from God while admiring His creation?I am your brother and friend Eduardo Rodríguez. May the Lord hear your prayer today. ≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈Diciembre 10: La grandeza de Dios en la creación.Salmos 104:10‭-‬35 RVA2015:Tú eres el que vierte los manantiales en los arroyos; corren entre las colinas. Dan de beber a todos los animales del campo; los asnos monteses mitigan su sed. Junto a ellos habitan las aves del cielo y trinan entre las ramas. Tú das de beber a las montañas desde tus altas moradas; del fruto de tus obras se sacia la tierra. Haces producir el pasto para los animales y la vegetación para el servicio del hombre a fin de sacar de la tierra el alimento: el vino que alegra el corazón del hombre, el aceite que hace lucir su rostro, y el pan que sustenta el corazón del hombre. Se llenan de savia los árboles del SEÑOR; los cedros del Líbano que él plantó. Allí anidan las aves; en sus copas hace su nido la cigüeña. Los montes altos son para las cabras monteses; las peñas, para las madrigueras de los conejos. Tú eres el que hizo la luna para las estaciones; el sol conoce su ocaso. Pones las tinieblas, y es de noche; en ella corretean todos los animales silvestres. Los leones rugen por la presa y reclaman a Dios su comida. Sale el sol; se recogen y se echan en sus cuevas. Sale el hombre a su labor y a su labranza hasta el anochecer. ¡Cuán numerosas son tus obras, oh SEÑOR! A todas las hiciste con sabiduría; la tierra está llena de tus criaturas. Este es el mar grande y ancho, en el cual hay peces sin número, animales grandes y pequeños. Sobre él van los navíos; allí está el Leviatán que hiciste para que jugase en él. Todos ellos esperan en ti para que les des su comida a su tiempo. Tú les das, y ellos recogen; abres tu mano, y se sacian del bien. Escondes tu rostro, y se desvanecen; les quitas el aliento, y dejan de ser. Así vuelven a ser polvo. Envías tu hálito, y son creados; y renuevas la superficie de la tierra. ¡Sea la gloria del SEÑOR para siempre! Alégrese el SEÑOR en sus obras. Él mira la tierra, y ella tiembla; toca las montañas, y humean. Cantaré al SEÑOR en mi vida; a mi Dios cantaré salmos mientras viva. Que mi meditación le sea grata y que yo me alegre en el SEÑOR. Sean exterminados de la tierra los pecadores, y los impíos dejen de ser. ¡Bendice, oh alma mía, al SEÑOR! ¡Aleluya!Este es uno de esos salmos escritos de forma elocuente exaltando al Creador. Si lees detalladamente todo el salmo, vas a notar cómo el salmista estaba mirando la forma en que la creación está conectada de una con otra. Él detalló cómo todo lo que ha sido formado tiene un propósito específico para que los seres vivientes subsistan sobre la Tierra.Es maravilloso leer la forma en que el salmista veía los cielos y la tierra establecidos. Cómo tiene todo su lugar específico y perfecto: los manantiales, las montañas, el mar. También cómo los animales se sacian y son cuidados por el Todopoderoso.De forma contraria, cuando Dios mueve su mano para castigar la tierra, fácilmente las criaturas se desvanecen.Esta es una lectura muy bonita, especialmente para aquellos que les gusta la materia de Ciencias Naturales o Biología. Con este salmo podemos mirar que las ciencias eran muy avanzadas en la antigüedad. Muchos reyes utilizaban su posición para traer a su corte los científicos de la época y así ellos también aprendían mucho sobre la naturaleza. Por ejemplo, Salomón era uno de ellos. Y la ciencia, en vez de negar a Dios como algunos piensan, más bien nos confirma que los antepasados no estaban equivocados al declarar que solamente un Creador puede haber hecho de todas estas cosas y no se hicieron de la nada. Espero que este salmo te haya llenado de fe y confianza en Aquel que hizo todas estas creaciones maravillosas, y que es el mismo que te llamó, te escogió a ti y a tu familia para estar en su presencia.Considera:¿Has recibido alguna revelación de Dios al admirar su creación?Soy tu hermano y amigo Eduardo Rodríguez. Que el Señor escuche hoy tu oración. #HogaresDePacto #KingdomChurch #IglesiaElReino #IPUH #PastorCarlos #CarlosRodriguez #EduardoRodriguez #PoderCaster #salmos #salmo104

Paul Frank Martino was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1971, the eldest of two boys born to Italian immigrant parents, one of which came to the United States of America from the Molise Region of Italy, and the other came to the United States of America from the Naples (Campania) Region of Italy.  Paul was raised as a practicing Roman Catholic in the town of Ronkonkoma, on Long Island, in the state of New York, and graduated from Connetquot High School, in Bohemia, New York in 1989.  He graduated from Dowling College, in Oakdale, New York with a B.A. in Natural Sciences and Mathematics in 1993.  He earned his Master's in Exercise Physiology from the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana in 1996, and later earned his Ph.D. in Physiology from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2006.  After earning, his Ph.D., Paul moved on to a two year American Heart Association, post-doctoral fellowship at Wright State University at the Boonshoft School of Medicine in the Department of Neuroscience, Cell Biology, and Physiology, studying the neuro-physiological effects of carbon dioxide regulation in the brain. After his fellowship, he moved on to a short stay in the biomedical/pharmaceutical industry as a study director designing research studies for evaluating and understanding potential new drugs. During his stay in industry, he also simultaneously managed and mentored a small group of laboratory research technicians.  He learned a great deal about managing and mentoring people in his short stint in industry.  He also learned that the business side of research is very different from research in the academic world. Since 2009, he has been a full-time tenure-track faculty member in the Biology Department at Carthage College, a small Lutheran affiliated liberal arts college in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  He was awarded the prestigious “Teacher of the Year Award in 2017,” for his outstanding teaching of Anatomy and Physiology to upper-classmen from across the Carthage campus. He currently leads the Carthage Biology Department as an Associate Professor and Chair.  In addition, he also holds several other academic positions, which include Associate Adjunct Professor of Physiology at Medical College of Wisconsin, as well as a faculty member of the Stress and Motivated Institute (SMBI).  He loves teaching and mentoring college students (Nate was one of my students.) to help them find their way in life, and has mentored 80 plus undergraduates in his active and collaborative research lab at Carthage.  He has co-authored 21 peer-reviewed scientific articles on strength training, glucose metabolism, respiratory neurophysiology, sleep, antioxidants, and behavioral inhibition. His current research, which is in part a collaboration with Justin Miller and several other Carthage colleagues' focuses on the physiology of college age students who have the behavioral temperament, called behavioral inhibition.  This book signals a new stage of his professional life and one where he hopes to help even more people navigate the struggles of life and to succeed. opphysiology@gmail.com    Doktesinc@gmail.com   https://www.facebook.com/LettersToOurYoungerSelves   https://www.amazon.com/s?k=letters+to+our+younger+selves&crid=16EJYQS95FCKS&sprefix=letters+to+our+younger+%2Caps%2C187&ref=nb_sb_ss_ts-doa-p_1_23  https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/letters%20to%20our%20younger%20selves

Islam's contributions to the natural sciences has long been recognized within the Euro-American academy, however, such studies tend to include one of a number of narrative tropes, either emphasizing the "Golden Age" model, focusing on scientific productions in Baghdad and other centers around the first millennium CE; emphasizing Islam's role in transmitting and preserving Greco-Roman learning, and enabling it to be re-translated into Latin around the time of the Renaissance; and the vast majority suggest that the majority of Islamic scientific output came to a halt around toward the end 16th century. In Revealed Sciences: The Natural Sciences in Islam in Seventeenth-Century Morocco (Cambridge UP, 2021), Justin K. Stearns argues that there is ample evidence that scientific production continued apace, if, in fact, we know where to look for it. Demonstrating the vibrancy of seventeenth century Morocco, Revealed Sciences examines how science flourished during this period, albeit in a different manner than that of Europe. Offering an innovative analysis of the relationship between religious thought and the natural sciences, Stearns shows how nineteenth and twentieth century European and Middle Eastern scholars jointly developed a narrative of the decline of post-formative Islamic thought, including the fate of the natural sciences in the Muslim world. Challenging these depictions, Stearns uses numerous close readings of legal, biographical, and classificatory texts - alongside medical, astronomical, and alchemical works - to establish a detailed overview of the place of the natural sciences in the scholarly and educational landscapes of the early modern Maghreb, and considers non-teleological possibilities for understanding a persistent engagement with the natural sciences in Morocco and elsewhere.

Fossil of crocodile's ‘grandfather' discovered A 150-million-year-old fossilized skeleton discovered in the mountains of southern Chile was likely the ancestor of the modern crocodile, the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences announced on July 23. The species, named Burkesuchus mallingrandensis, was found in 2014 in an Andean fossil deposit near the Patagonian town of Mallin Grande by Argentine and Chilean researchers. Since then it has been analyzed at the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences in Buenos Aires. The specimen is a “grandfather” of current crocodiles and should allow scientists to understand how they evolved, the museum said. (Reuters) Fossil of new four-legged whale found in Egypt Scientists said on Aug. 25 they had discovered the 43-million-year-old fossil of a previously unknown amphibious four-legged whale species in Egypt — a discovery that will help trace the transition of whales from land to sea. The whale belongs to the Protocetidae, a group of extinct whales that falls in the middle of that transition, the Egyptian-led team of researchers said in a statement. The new whale, named Phiomicetus anubis, had an estimated body length of some 3 meters and a body mass of about 600 kg and was likely a top predator, the researchers said. Its skeleton revealed it as the most primitive protocetid whale known from Africa. (Reuters) These articles were provided by The Japan Times Alpha.

Six String Buddha
Karma and the “Natural Science” of Cause & Effect

Karma affects every one of us and our collective karma affects the entire planet as a whole. Cause & effect is the law that determines the nature of the karma we create. The lyrics to Rush's epic song “Natural Science” from their album “Permanent Waves” provide a perfect blueprint to explain these two concepts. It's no stretch to say that Rush's drummer, the late Neil Peart, was certainly a modern day Aristotle, when it came to expressing deep, philosophical lessons, within the context of a song. Using the allegory of the “natural science” of our own planet (as well as inter-galactic space), Peart compares our human world with the macrocosm of the entire universe, beginning with the smallest microorganisms and their symbiosis and the role it all plays in the ongoing story of human life. What about the collective karma of humanity, over the course of the next millennium? Will mankind survive and evolve, or will we follow in the footsteps of the dinosaurs and eventually become fossils for the next intelligent species to piece together? Can humans learn to peacefully coexist, or will we be responsible for our own demise? The answers to these questions are entirely up to each and every one of us and the actions we take, from moment to moment. After listening to this episode, you'll have a clearer understanding of how humans are mutually in control of our own destiny. If we learn to understand our individual karma and the karma of others and also abide by the law of cause & effect, it's still possible for us to turn things around from the direction we seem to be headed and point us toward a brighter future, devoid of conflict and war. Come with me as I explore the inner workings of the quantum world and its connection to the farthest reaches of the universe and how each one of us plays a role in this cosmic drama. https://www.sixstringbuddha.com https://www.facebook.com/SixStringBuddhaPodcast This podcast is hosted by ZenCast.fm

In this episode Keta & Dani of the East Oakland Collective and I talk about the changes they're creating  in Oakland to increase accessibility. We all know there's no damn reason for communities of color to be under-resourced other than whyteness doing what it does! And Dani let us know that no community, even if it's underdeveloped, ever goes unmapped or unplanned. So what can we do about houselessness, transportation, and making sure our communities thrive? How can we be the ones to stand up for our cities to increase access? Bc let's face it, we've always known WE gotta take care of US.! How can we create what we want to see and get the resources for it? Listen, learn, and get involved! ABOUT WEEZE Louiza Doran, known and referred to as Weeze, is a cis-het Amazigh* female-identifying human who uses she/her/they/them pronouns. She's known as a coach, podcast host, advocate, agent of change, strategist, and educator (to name a few) but is ultimately a compassionate provocateur that is out to help folks uncover their path of possibility.   ABOUT KETA & DANI Marquita “Keta” Price (she/her/Goddess), aka “The Hood Planner,” is a third-generation East Oakland native serving as the Director of Urban and Regional Planning for The East Oakland Collective. Keta's formal passion for urbanism came about during recreational research on how gentrification has impacted low-income Black “hoods” across the nation. As director, Keta is the lead on several East Oakland neighborhood & transportation planning projects, participates in the development of local urban and regional planning, and holds the city of Oakland accountable to equitable zoning and land use in East Oakland. Her early activism and care for community is rooted at Merritt College, where she served as the Vice President of The Black Student Union, President of the Kem(istry) Club, President of the Associated Students of Merritt College (ASMC), and served as a Student Trustee of the Peralta Community College School District. Keta's initial goals were to restore the intellect and militancy of Merritt's student government. Seeded by Chairman Bobby Seale and other former Black Panthers, ASMC focused on leveraging the institution's resources to address the socioeconomic issues from the flatlands prohibiting students from thriving academically. Keta's political and social goals pulled her away from studying chemistry to deeply exploring how societies, communities, and cities are planned, designed and constructed.  As a chemistry major, Keta received an achievement award for the completion of The Center for Educational Partnerships NIH-UCB internship. During this project Keta synthesized pro-fluorophores used for live-cell RNA imaging. Keta also received recognition and commendation from the California Legislature Assembly and State of California Senate and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors for her student advocacy work with the Tobacco-less Club at Merritt College. Keta has an Associates of Science in Mathematics and Natural Science. When the opportunity presents itself, Keta plans to further her education in Urban Studies, Data Analysis and Design. Danielle "Dani" Dynes is a dedicated community planner who was born in East Oakland and raised in West Oakland. As a planner, she focuses on the present needs of residents and while creating strategies to deal with the challenges of the future. She works to bring more resources and infrastructure to Oakland and ensure we have safer, healthier, and well-connected communities moving forward. Danielle has a B.A. in Urban Studies and Planning from San Francisco State University. She has previously worked at the Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) in their Planning and Project Development section. Several of Danielle's projects at OakDOT prioritized equitable and culturally relevant change in the East Oakland community. She facilitated events around the 90th Avenue Scraper Bike Way and conducted community outreach for the East Oakland Mobility Action Plan. She also helped manage Sustainable Transportation Planning grants while interning at the California Department of Transportation. Before she studied planning Danielle taught website design and visual communication to students in Oakland and Richmond. In 2016 she was honored as a Youth Development Fellow by Coro, a civic leadership training organization. In her leisure, Danielle enjoys photography, crafting, hiking, and gardening. IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT How EOC's founder, Candace Elder, said hell nah to the ways her community was deteriorating due to gentrification and decided to address issues like pollution + houselessness. The fuckery with folks seeing systemic challenges and thinking it's random or beyond our control, but it's not! We knowwww this! Why disparities and underdeveloped communities even exist, when communities are always mapped out and planned.  How the white flight outta of East Oakland and left the whole area for dead!. There's no designated funding to give to communities to plan their own communities surprise surprise, so a lot of that grunt work falls on nonprofits, grassroots people, and individuals to fill that gap. How a lack of economics, transportation, and accessibility affects communities + what we can do to help! CALL TO ACTION Support the East Oakland Mobility Action Plan. Get involved with the Mobility 4 All program, their new clean mobility fellows, and an upcoming project funded by the STEP Grant to explore the feasibility of implementing a zero-emission bus shuttle to bridge access to nearby local/regional park-The Martin Luther King Jr. Shoreline.
