I’m working at NPR these days and have contributed some wordy bits to the web site in the form of blogs posts and sidebars to radio stories. Today I took a jab at the health conditions of the incredibly courageous and fortunate Chilean miners for NPR’s health blog, Shots.
Earlier in the week, I wrote a little post on Google’s big announcement to build a badly needed transmission line for offshore wind energy in the Mid-Atlantic. This was good news in a relatively bleak period of climate and energy policy stagnancy in DC.
Last week I had something for Shots on the food pyramid and USDA’s plans to possibly replace it with something better.
I had a little sidebar on Jon Hamilton’s piece on a neuroscience discovery about how nerves communicate with each other.
And in my very first Shots post, I wrote about a geochemist in Indianapolis who is studying lead contamination in urban gardens. He says you can still grow vegetables safety in urban brownfields with raised beds and mulch.
