         WE LOVE SCIENCE HERE BECAUSE IT IS A MANY SPLENDOURED THING

     THIS  IS A WAR ZONE WHERE SCIENCE FIGHTS WITH NONSENSE AND WINS                                               

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”             

                    "Being a scientist is a state of mind, not a profession!"

"Knowledge is a Superpower but the irony is you cannot get enough of it with ever increasing data base unless you try to keep up with it constantly and in the right way!" The best education comes from learning from people who know what they are exactly talking about.

Science is this glorious adventure into the unknown, the opportunity to discover things that nobody knew before. And that’s just an experience that’s not to be missed. But it’s also a motivated effort to try to help humankind. And maybe that’s just by increasing human knowledge—because that’s a way to make us a nobler species.

If you are scientifically literate the world looks very different to you.

We do science and science communication not because they are easy but because they are difficult!

Stress can boost immune system!

It's certainly true that chronic stress, lasting weeks and months, has deleterious effects including, notably, suppression of the immune response. But short-term stress -- the fight-or-flight response, a mobilization of bodily resources lasting minutes or hours in response to immediate threats -- stimulates immune activity, said lead author Firdaus Dhabhar, PhD, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and member of the Stanford Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection.

My comment on the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g032MPrSjFA&feature=player_embedded
I am from the field of science and it is disgusting to see how women are being stereotyped and made to look like fashion-crazy idiots!
Do women scientists look like this? Definitely not! This is not the way to attract girls into the field of science. Tell them interesting and inspirational stories about women scientists and their discoveries, inventions and achievements if you really want to bring them into the field of science.It doesn't matter if the actual science chicks don't look like this. 

Somebody's reply: It doesn't matter if the actual science chicks don't look like this. That is not the target audience.

My reply:

If this is the case, these girls will be utterly disappointed once they get into the field of science! And they will leave it if they find out the truth and the very idea of attracting girls into the field of science with these types of images will be a big disaster! Because they should get attracted to the truths and facts of science and not false images!

The main ingredients for a successful career in science are curiosity and enthusiasm, not lip gloss - The wall street journal

These ones look good:

Scientists must make research an open book

Details of publicly funded projects should be made available free to all online, ministers will insist

“Intellectual integrity made it quite impossible for me to accept the myths and dogmas of even very great scientists, more particularly of the belligerent and so-called advanced nations. Indeed, those intellectuals who accepted them were abdicating their functions for the joy of feeling themselves at one with the herd.”— Bertrand Russell 1872-1969. (How true! - Krishna)

Seeking Scientists for Science Cafe!
The WA National Science Week Coordinating Committee invites you to participate in the 2012 Science Cafe. We are seeking 80 West Australian Scientists to share their passion for science with year 10 and 11 students from across Perth at a morning tea hosted at The University of Western Australia. On Wednesday, August 15th at 9:00 AM, students will attend this event at Winthrop Hall and the University of Western Australia to get to know science professionals and learn more about their fields. For information on participating, please contact Kerry Mazzotti at kerry.mazzotti@scitech.org.au
