Are there any good web sites I should be using
I use it for finding links to other sites with articles
there's a lot of them out there just do a google search for science news,
I admire these websites:
I'm more into astronomy. I rely on these sources...
...and for my dose for physics news I use www.physicsweb.org
I might also start using other, interesting places mentioned here.
i have read science news magazine since i was 10. 1970. ok 9.
theyve recently undergone a new format, but the content is just great. after reading it for 30 years ive read an encyclopedia britannica
they are .ORG!!! not that other 'c' word...
well worth a subscription.
i specifically have an enthusiasm with the idea that they arent as popularized, that they are written engagingly, if anything like that shows up, and specifically that its conversationally presented, a fact i loved about isaac asimov, and after that richard feynman. it helped me a lot to know people can just casually use sentences that include words like zinjanthropous like they just went to mcdonalds. and, when the topic has a salient point, they dont chince on the vocabulary. it was a big jump from my weekly reader to science news around 6th grade but it gave me a fantastic vocabulary. i wish it were given as current events readings at schools. now they're every 2 weeks.
i am always nervous something would happen to it, its kind of like a diabetics insulin to me!
their website is doing well. presentation and format come after content but i have almost no complaint.
i highly recommend it. they used its predecessor in the Scopes monkey trial in 1925 as evidence. if ya read it for a couple years you'll find other popularized magazines are written loosely. it is a good teacher.
and also, several of the reporters have been there together for more than a dozen years, richard montarsky, ron cowen, janet raloff, all have won awards for science writing. its a little secret seems not enough people know about. could be a subscription drive going too!
go for it. if you're not happy you wouldnt be by much!
