This post is a week behind the times, but Blog drive was down when I wanted to post and then when it was back up again, I got busy. But better late than never.

Uh-oh! Pluto may be unfrocked
Uh-oh. It looks like Pluto may be stripped of its planetary title
in the coming weeks. The International Astronomical Union is meeting in Prague, to discuss many things, but the hottest topic of all is the definition of "planet." This new definition could change the way we learn about our solar system today. NPR has a story on this specific topic and featured it today.

Poincare Conjecture Possibly Proven
The Science Journal for the Wall Street Journal posted an article about a reclusive Russian Mathematician who is likely to be the winner for possibly proving the Poincare Conjecture. Since you have to have a subscription to the journal in order to read the articles, this link is may not work after a few days, but here it is

Collapse, By Jared Diamond
Collapse is a really excellent book. Jared Diamond examines what causes civilizations to survive or not to survive, as a result of how they use and manage resources. I won't spoil the fun -- you've got to read it!
