Interesting NPR Stories on Science and Research Funding in the US

I haven't been updating this blog as much as I'd like to over the past spring and summer, but it has been a busy time, and the blog has needed to take a back-seat to other stuff in my life, including my day job, wedding, traveling, etc.  I don't like to share too many articles from other sources; it feels like a cop-out rather than writing something more original.  There are plenty of blogs that present a laundry list of links every day or week that are way more comprehensive that I would ever be.  However, sometimes there are a few stories that I come across that I think should be passed along to anyone reading this blog.  

The first is an NPR story from "All Things Considered," called "When Scientists Give Up."  It is worth a read or listen.  I would argue that the first guy profiled in the story actually "gave up," while the second guy was "forced out" rather than "gave up."  Still, semantics aside, it is worth reading as a snapshot of what happens to a lot of people trying to pursue scientific research as a career.  

The second is "US Science Suffers From Booms and Busts in Funding" from NPRs "Morning Edition."  It describes a lot of the current funding issues facing scientists.  If you want to better understand what impact the current federal budget is having on research and researchers, these two articles are good places to start.

  1. All the scientific achievements need to go through trial and error.Sometimes, the scientists need the accumulation of experience, but they just need a little inspiration sometimes. Nowadays, the scientific achievements needs the support from government and biotech companies. ---CD

  2. It's never easy to pursue a scientific job as a life long career, which requires patience and bearing of the lonely time as well as failures and short of fund. And the ones who are on the way are great, they have huge dreams and society need them. There are many guys on the great way in our company BOC Sciences-Best of chemicals.

    Hope you can post here more often.

  32. I've been fascinated with science fiction stories for as long as I can remember, although, I must confess, I never thought of science fiction as being mainstream literature. I, like many readers, pursued science fiction as a form of escapism, a way to keep up with speculation on recent scientific discoveries, or just a way to pass the time.best bearded dragon substrate

  47. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Herpes(HSV) and my aunt and her husband were cured too by Dr. Okaka who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr. Okaka prove to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony i was cured with the herbal medicine which Dr okaka sent to me. Contact him on his personal email;okakspellhome@gmail.com, you can also call or whatsapp him;+2347062982173. He can also cure diseases like HIVAIDS, HERPES, HEP B, CANCER, BIBTIES, SYPHILIS, LOW SPERM COUNT, GHONORHEA, MALARIA, ALCER, HPV ETC. you can kindly contact him if you need his help.
