You don’t have to pour ice water on your head to get involved. You don’t need to challenge someone to do it either. Yes, it is completely ridiculous. We just wanted to have a little fun.
Here’s a direct link to the ALS Association website where you can make a donation to help fight Lou Gherig’s disease:

Brooke and I lost a dear friend, Paul Dunn, to ALS in 2002. Today our brother Kip Jackson is fighting ALS. Kip is a warrior. We’d like to dedicate this one to Kip and his lovely wife, Robin. Kip and Robin are making a difference in the lives of people with ALS every day through their support and encouragement. Please join us in raising money to help fight ALS.
At the time of this post, these antics have raised over $53 Million.

Learnt an interesting thing today on this arabic course,
The original Arabic number system looked like this, the one we now use.
It was designed so each character had the corresponding number of angles to the number, so the number 1 has 1 angle, 2 has 2 angles, 3 has 3, 0 has none etc…
It is so obvious now, I’ve always assumed its one of those things that just is, with no logical explanation, but here it is, perfectly simple and satisfying
Waterbears can go without food or water for more than a decade. They can survive temperatures from zero to above the boiling point of water, pressure six times stronger than the deepest ocean trench, radiation hundreds of times higher than the fatal dose for a human, and the vacuum of space.

Top 5 misconceptions about evolution: A guide to demystify the foundation of modern biology.
Here is an infographic to help inform citizens. From my experience most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates. That said, here are five of the biggest barriers faced when one explains evolution - I have faced these and they are documented in the literature.
I hope you can build on my work and improve the communication between the scientists and the public.
Want to do more? If you want to donate to the cause of science education I suggest the National Center for Science Education http://ncse.com, your local university, or an equivalent organization. Volunteering at schools and inviting scientists into classrooms are two ways to encourage an informed society. Attend hearings if school boards start questioning evolution’s role in public curriculum. Raise a storm if anyone tries to ban science. Plus, it never hurts to reblog a well made evolution post.
Thank you followers for all your support!
