(I don't know in which category I should post this thread. Please, remove me if I'm wrong.) What happened to the "news in science" line? It was once a very good collection of news in physics. Now, it mutated to a Scientific American news ticker and topics aren't related to physics any more. So far, I had the impression that www.physicsforms.com [Broken] is a completely independent website and a real great opportunity to discuss problems with extremly competent and helpfull members. Most people in here probably read journals like Nature, Science, Phys. Rev., Nano-letters ... . instead of the Scientific American. Is Scientific American a new sponsor of the forum? Loosing the independency would be very, very sad.
