…the “Stranger Visions” project is a startling reminder of advances in both technology and genetics. “It came from this place of noticing that we are leaving genetic material everywhere,” says Dewey-Hagbog. “That, combined with the increasing accessibility to molecular biology and these techniques means that this kind of science fiction future is here now. It is available to us today. The question really is what are we going to do with that?”Moral: Be careful where you leave your DNA!
The craziest thing to me is that this tech is really similar to my Exploravision project from 2001. 12 years, 20 years …
Booklist’s 1000 Best Young Adult Books, 2000–2010
With the explosion in YA publishing, it’s harder than ever to separate good books from the rest.
So who’s going to count the diversity represented in this book? :)
Someone with a spare $60.
And is it just me, or does a book covering 2000-2010 coming out in 2014 seem out of date? Booklist’s 1000 Best Young Adult Books of the Last Decade. I mean, I get wanting to only include books that have been somewhat tested by time, but why not cover a wider range then?

Another tornado, another round of “Why don’t these people have basements?” comments.

In the past, I’ve done some fundraising for Shelterbox when disaster has struck. Shelterbox is going to Oklahoma to aid the people who lost their homes, so I am fundraising again, and asking for your help.
What Shelterbox does is make up these LARGE GREEN BOXES that contain high-quality tents that can house up to ten people. The boxes also contain things that help you live, like a stove, tools, water purifiers, blankets, and something for children. The boxes cost about $1000. Together, we can totally raise enough for a shelter or two? I’ve set up a donation page, and it’s really easy to give.
If you could share this, it is appreciated. We can literally put a roof over someone’s head. No amount is too small. Nothing is insignificant.
Here’s a little bit more about what they do.
Guys, the TARDIS still stole the Doctor. After all, she took him to Clara in the first, second, and third places. And Clara jumped back through the time stream in the TARDIS engendered by all the Doctor’s travel in the TARDIS.
The TARDIS plays a long game.
