- C&EN covers the Scripps/USC debacle; looks like it's over for the merger deal and for president Marletta. (article by Elizabeth Wilson)
- Jeff Johnson looks at the contretemps at CSB; I'd sure like to know what is going on (is it really poor management by Chairman Moure-Eraso?) and why this matter seems to be taking a partisan bent.
- This article by Deirdre Lockwood on the bioactivity of crude oil compounds on fish cardiac systems was unexpectedly really interesting.
- Enjoyed this Bethany Halford article on PET and organofluorine chemistry at various academic organic chemistry departments; radiochemistry is such a narrow employment niche, but it seems to have real impact on biomedical understanding.
