Alright team, it’s been a while since the webcrawl was anything close to weekly. One of my post-marriage resolutions is to return this little feature back to its deserved regularity. And for this first foray back, I have a few great stories to share with you. Enjoy (and happy weekend!)
- Dennis Overbye waxes philosophical on questions of time and space. More on this subject in the June 17th issue of New Scientist (preview article only, sadly).
- If you’ve enjoyed our stories about Iris Berents’ work (here and here, for example), you’ll find new research from TK, reported this week in The Scientist among other outlets, particularly exciting: Birdsong explains why babies babble.
- Remember when Northeastern marine science graduate student Rebecca Certner blogged about Game of Thrones? She’s at it again, this time expounding upon the myths and realities of Star Trek.
- Finally, in honor of my exceedingly sedentary vacation, a PLOS Blogs Network post about how “physically active vacations are more re-energizing.”
