Radiolab: From Tree to Shining Tree
A lot of times I get to go do really cool new things. Then, I forget to take pictuers.
I regret not capturing the moment. I do.not regret remembering the moment.
It has been an absolute pleasure of mine to spend the majority of my summer living at the lake.
My wife shared her dream to spend the summer at the lake living, working, and handling the normal busy hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. My normal office hours resume Monday, so this will be the last weekday I spend here.
I have enjoyed spending this much time here with my wife and son, and I’m already looking forward to next year.

In the wake of the Orlando night club mass shooting, I wanted to post a link, that sadly, I’ve already posted before this year. In fact, I only posted this exact link 3 months ago, but I think it bears a repeat:
In the end, the study found that the most effective way to lower the rate of firearm deaths in the US was to focus on implementing the best legislation, which were the laws most strongly associated with reduced gun deaths, namely universal background checks for firearm and ammunition purchase as well as identification requirements for guns.
Nobody wants to take your guns away. Nobody is tearing up the 2nd Amendment. We are just asking that death machines be regulated.
We have a law requiring drivers to wear seatbelts. Most agree this is a positive regulation.
The government knows how much pseudoephedrine I own. Many agree this is a positive regulation
Can we please regulate who can own assault riffles and buy ammunition for them?

Incredible scientific deduction, and an absolutely exciting thought.
We know the number of stars born each year. We know that the percentage of stars hosting planets is about 100. And we also know that about 20 to 25 percent of those planets are in the right place for life to form. This puts us in a position, for the first time, to say something definitive about extraterrestrial civilizations — if we ask the right question.
The more FB and others stand by and do nothing as Gawker is destroyed, the less faith I have in their neutrality. https://t.co/qyoqUkaA1b
