#SCIENCE!!!
A blog for lovers of all things science, made by two students who are fascinated by all the scientific wonders of the universe. Daryl is pursuing a career in higher education and cell and molecular biology and Khris is a future coroner getting close to her M.D. Also feel free to ask us anything!

Science

the-right-writing:

Science has been severely misrepresented by authors. If you want to write about scientific worldviews accurately, here are some tips.

  • If a scientist saw something supernatural and could be assured it existed, they wouldn’t scream “that’s impossible!” or try to destroy it because it doesn’t fit their worldview. They would be more likely to say “How interesting. I wonder how this will change my theories. I’d better incorporate it into my worldview.”
  • Scientists have morals just like the rest of us. In fact, many people become scientists because they want to help humanity. How is that so hard to understand?
  • A whole lot of scientists love nature and want to preserve it.
  • Scientists who have helped to create deadly weapons almost always regret it. Politicians who order those weapons to be used don’t.
  • Science in general would be attracted to magic, not repulsed by it. A new thing to study with possible new applications to help mankind? How wonderful!
  • How well a scientist understands people and gets along socially is up to the individual. They’re not an entire profession of evil, cold robots.
What I Learned in Parasitology College Is… Fun things fall by the wayside more times than you’d like it to.
So yeah, I haven’t been doing a very good job doing ANYTHING I’ve said I was going to do on this blog…. I suck. 
I’ve been very busy with school work, trying not to fall behind or become a zombie in the process, and I’ve had to put a hold on a few things in order to make that happen.
BUT I’m not giving up on what I said I was going to do on here, it’s just taking a little more time to gather the reserves and time needed to do it. 
What I will say, and what I’m very excited about is that I’ll be doing my parasitology project on this guy up here! His name is Varroa destructor, aka the Varroa mite and you might have seen him before if you’ve looked into Colony Collapse Disorder and why so many bees have been dying off lately. 
I got the okay from my professor to do this parasite and that just makes me giddy because these little buggers have HUGE ecologic and economic impacts, as you may guess. 
I promise to do what I can on here, and I’ll definitely post alot about this little guy (or girl, its an arachnid so its hard for me to tell…) alot in the future!
