  1. I would think the poison from a puffer fish would produce a little more zombie like characteristics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrodotoxin
  2. Today's wide field lens eyepieces are much better than the old pinholes IMO
  3. Agreed - the most educational science show aimed at the masses, with Nova Science Now a close second. I worry though what will fill the void when they leave? So far spinoffs like Smashlab and such have been garbage.
  4. http://www.travelchannel.com/TV_Shows/Food_Wars Its gonna be great!
  5. Came across this website a little while back, which I've found very informative on content as well as methods. http://www.academicearth.org/
  6. A video about chromosome 2 and human ancestry that may be helpful... http://www.teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=67774&title=Chromosome_Numbers_and_Common_Ancestry
  7. Peer review is at the heart of modern science – there is a little more to do with it than scientists “running their mouths”. If you cannot accept this basic concept for whatever reasons, you may be on the wrong forums.

  9. I am sure this article has been posted in the past, but always relevant http://www.jonstarbuck.co.uk/archives/646
  10. Thanks, I will make sure to heat up a gram or so prior.
  11. I have a quick question that I hope some of you all may be able to help with – every year I do the gummy bear molten potassium chlorate demo to illustrate Cellular Respiration. However after speaking with another science teacher in the area he told me I probably shouldn’t do this demo due to the high risk of impurities in the potassium chlorate – which could lead to disastrous results. Do any of you have any experience with this, or maybe elaborate more on the risks? Thanks
  12. Greetings! I am new to this forum as visible by my posting on this thread. I have been teaching biology here in Kansas for five years now and have a deep passion for science education.
