Celebrate Science

April 21, 2017

The March for Science is a Celebration of Science

Tomorrow is the March for Science and an unprecendented number of people are expected to take to the streets across the globe. The main march is in Washington, DC and includes a weekend full of events and in addition to that there are 530 satellite marches worldwide. Find out about the SF March for Science here and there are a ton more in the Bay Area.

March for Science clearly states their mission: The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments. It's time to get off the sidelines and make a difference.

These events come at a time when many are grappling with the proper role of science in our civic life (see NYT article here). Life is strange. 

Weekend reads

Light as a Particle and as a Wave - Singularity and Continuity

Malcolm Gladwell on Why We Shouldn’t Value Speed Over Power

Here's a good read from one of our favorites, Malcolm Gladwell... discussing our ways of evaluating success that are biased toward speed and how colleges and workplaces might do better creating spaces where growth can take more time.

If you don't know who Malcolm Gladwell is, check him out. This from Wikipedia: Malcolm Gladwell is an English-born Canadian journalist, author, and speaker. He has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1996. He has written five books, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference (2000), Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (2005), Outliers: The Story of Success (2008), What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures (2009), a collection of his journalism, and David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants (2013). All five books were on The New York Times Best Seller list (and they're all great!). He is also the host of an awesome podcast Revisionist History.
