Doing a lot of writing today but I didn't want these to fall through the cracks:
1. The Atlantic picks up our EPI report. Good coverage, and what was especially cool was the short discussion at the end of the article about the author's change of opinion on the issue.
2. I wanted to bring people's attention to the blog Chemblogger, which covers the labor market for chemists. Lots of podcasts on the blog - you may be seeing me on there soon :). The coverage of our report is here.
3. The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is trying to get language in NSF legislation with the intent of limiting funding for research. I don't know how likely this is to pass or if in practice it would be easy for the NSF to navigate around it, but the intent is depressing enough. (HT - Dr. J).
