1:46 PM | Video Tip of the Week: NIH 3D Print Exchange
The other day I was joking about how I was 3D-printing a baby sweater–the old way, with yarn and knitting needles. And I also mentioned that I assumed my niece-in-law was 3D-printing the baby separately. I’ve been musing (and reading) about 3D printing a lot lately–sometimes the plastic model part, sometimes the bioprinting of tissues […]

11:19 PM | The Food Babe, high fructose corn syrup, and your beer
  I know that 90% of my articles are about vaccines. I know that I’ve shown over and over again that vaccines are effective and about as safe as anything in medicine. And I know that vaccines don’t cause autism. Obviously, I never have to write another article about vaccines. Hah. OK, it’s never going […]Continue reading «The Food Babe, high fructose corn syrup, and your beer»

9:50 PM | Why Every Journalism Student Should Blog
Last week, I took my PhD comprehensive exams. For my particular PhD program in mass communication, comprehensive (or qualifying) examinations take the form of 4-hour long essay tests - five of them, five days in a row. Sounds brutal, right? Apart from being a bit emotionally taxing, however, the exams themselves were not bad at all.
