The future of science: A conversation with Mark Jacobson

The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election aggressively covered topics from health care to foreign policy, from economic growth to national security.

In discussing science and the…

A B.S. essay starter kit

Often, there are moments or events which must be endured but which, in the great ineffable scheme, serve absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

The first time I was ever turned down for a job, I was outraged, and frankly a little alarmed.
