Interview with Mick Ellison

Today I’m delighted to be able to interview Mick Ellison. While some of the work here might be familiar, I suspect Mick as an artist is below many people’s radar. He himself might claim that his palaeo work is more in the realm of [...]

The American Geophysical Union Fall 2010 Meeting last week in San Francisco was like a giant, all-you-can-eat science buffet. No matter what flavor of the geosciences interests you — near-surface to core, earth to Mars, hard rock to water [...]

People often send me links to stories of the Indian cow that took to eating baby chickens. The story isn't at all new: it appeared in the press in March 2007, and at least one of the cow's lapses into carnivory was filmed. It's shown here (though [...]
