#060 - "Consumed" Movie Review
<p>Consumed – Movie Review</p> <p>Are we too old for all this GMO shit? Microblogganism and Cal certainly aren’t as they look at the 2016 anti-gmo drama “Consumed”. Intended as an examination of concerns over GMO’s, the film instead plays like one woman’s descent into madness. Featuring “GMO cops” whose sole job it is to drive aggressively near people, a thinly veiled mega corporation called <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Monsanto</span> Clonestra. <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Monsanto</span>  Clonestra is one evil, evil bunch of dudes lawsuits included!. Danny Glover stars as a good ole timey organic farmer relentlessly pursued by <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Monsanto</span> Clonestra for cross pollination and he’s sure chemtrails are in use because of reasons.</p> <p> </p> <p>Food Science Institute review: <a href="https://foodscienceinstitute.com/2016/03/09/consumed-the-movie-a-misinformed-anti-gmo-thriller/">https://foodscienceinstitute.com/2016/03/09/consumed-the-movie-a-misinformed-anti-gmo-thriller/</a></p> <p>Watch Consumed on Netflix: <a href="https://www.netflix.com/title/80105697">https://www.netflix.com/title/80105697</a></p> <p>Follow MicroBlogganism: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/MicroBlogganism">https://www.youtube.com/user/MicroBlogganism</a></p>

#057 - Pseudoscience vs Justice with Kavin Senapathy
<p>What is the public not understanding about GM foods that creates the significant gap between scientists and the public in how each views biotechnology? What are the science and public-policy benefits of widespread use of biotechnology in food and medicine that naysayers are not accounting for? And in what ways does embracing science and calling out fear-based myths impact justice and democracy?</p> <p>Joining us as a special guest on this episode to discuss these questions is author, writer, and science activist Kavin Senapathy. Co-founder and director of the international, pro-science, and pro-biotech movement March Against Myths, Kavin communicates to the public on science topics ranging from health, medicine, biotechnology, agriculture and food. She’s co-author of the book “The Fear Babe: Shattering Vani Hari’s Glass House,” which discusses popular food misconceptions and why they proliferate despite evidence against them. As a mom to two children, Kavin often tackles health and nutrition misinformation targeted at parents. She’s a regular contributor to Forbes, with work frequently appearing in outlets like Slate, Gawker, Grounded Parents and more.</p> <p><strong>Links</strong></p> <p>Follow Kavin Senapathy on Twitter:  <a href="https://twitter.com/ksenapathy">https://twitter.com/ksenapathy</a></p> <p>Kavin Senapathy, “The Anti-GMO Movement Has a Social Justice Problem,” <a href="https://www.forbes.com/sites/kavinsenapathy/2017/11/20/the-anti-gmo-movement-has-a-social-justice-problem/#23f030c23a54">https://www.forbes.com/sites/kavinsenapathy/2017/11/20/the-anti-gmo-movement-has-a-social-justice-problem/#23f030c23a54</a></p> <p>Kavin’s book: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Fear-Babe-Shattering-Haris-Glass/dp/069250981X">https://www.amazon.com/Fear-Babe-Shattering-Haris-Glass/dp/069250981X</a></p> <p>Science Moms documentary: <a href="http://www.sciencemomsdoc.com/">http://www.sciencemomsdoc.com/</a></p> <p>SciMoms website: <a href="http://www.scimoms.com/who-are-we/">http://www.scimoms.com/who-are-we/</a></p> <p>On the gap between scientists’ and the public’s views on GMOs: <br /> Cary Funk and Lee Rainie, “Public and Scientists’ Views on Science and Society,” Pew Research Center, January 29, 2015, <a href="http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/01/29/public-and-scientists-views-on-science-and-society/">http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/01/29/public-and-scientists-views-on-science-and-society/</a>.</p>

#055 - Is Race Even Real? With Guy P Harrison
<p>What is race? Where did the concept of biological races come from, and does it make any logical or scientific sense? What does the history of human migration, invention, and conquest really teach us about the role of race in shaping human civilization? Why are racial stereotypes so powerful in society, and what can we do to effectively challenge racism?</p> <p>In this episode, we tackle these questions with special guest Guy P. Harrison, journalist and author of the 2010 book “Race and Reality: What Everyone Should Know about Our Biological Diversity.” We talk about both the science and the social issues surrounding race and diversity, correcting the false assumptions and popular misconceptions that lead many people to think that biological race defines and divides humanity. The reality turns out not to be that simple.</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Guy P. Harrison on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/Harrisonauthor">https://twitter.com/Harrisonauthor</a></p> <p>Guy P.

#054 - The Hormone Myth with Robyn Stein DeLuca
<p>The Hormone Myth –</p> <p>How many times have you heard a woman be dismissed as “hormonal”, or her rationality be questioned, because of assumed endocrine imbalance? Chances are you’ve heard the phrases “on the rag” or “PMSing” used to put someone down, or been witness to jokes about that “time of the month” where “women get moody” etc.</p> <p>In this episode, our special guest Robyn Stein DeLuca, author of The Hormone Myth: How Junk Science, Gender Politics, and Lies About PMS Keep Women Down, joins Natalie and Jenna to discuss whether hormone fluctuations really play such a huge role in women’s behaviour. We talk post-natal depression, the menstrual cycle, social conditioning and behavioural assumptions, gender bias & perceptions and how much hormones really play a role in our cognitive variance.</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Robyn Stein DeLuca on Twitter: HTTPS://Twitter.com/RSDeLuca<br />Robyn’s Website: http://delucainsight.com/<br />The Hormone Myth book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hormone-Myth-Science-Gender-Politics/dp/1626255091<br />The Good News About PMS – TEDx Talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/robyn_stein_deluca_the_good_news_about_pms</p>

#053 - Science of Doctor Who
<p>What can a reincarnating Time Lord who gallivants across time and space in a 1950s-era police box whilst battling evil robots and aliens teach us about real-world science? To answer this question, Nathan, Jenn, and Cal are joined by Simon Guerrier, a documentary filmmaker, science fiction writer, and Whovian, to discuss the ideas in his book “The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who,” co-authored with astronomer Marek Kukula.</p> <p>In what ways does the Doctor in his various incarnations exemplify the scientific method in action? Has the life of science imitated the art of Doctor Who in any way? What is the source of the TARDIS’s power, and what does the Eye of Harmony have to do with black holes? What laws of time obtain in the Doctor Who universe, and do any of these in-universe laws conflict with what physicists know about time? How many episodes of Doctor Who are lost and/or missing, and how many have been recovered by dedicated, treasure-hunting Whovians? Can Simon Guerrier help us decipher and understand the 1989 “Ghost Light” episode? And what’s the deal with those knife-wielding, badger-faced space pirates?</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Simon Guerrier on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/0tralala">https://twitter.com/0tralala</a></p> <p>Simon Guerrier’s blog: <a href="http://0tralala.blogspot.co.uk/">http://0tralala.blogspot.co.uk/</a></p> <p>“The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who” book: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Scientific-Secrets-Doctor-Who/dp/0062386964">https://www.amazon.com/Scientific-Secrets-Doctor-Who/dp/0062386964</a></p> <p>“Wiped!

#052 - Mister Kent Hovind
<p>In this episode of Trolling with Logic, the crew takes a hard look at the magical world of young-earth creationism, as envisioned by everyone’s favorite creationist Kent Hovind. Before spending the last decade in federal prison for tax fraud and evasion, Hovind was a traveling evangelist preaching creationism and attacking evolution, armed with wacky strawmen. There’s no shortage of weird and wonderful nonsense to unravel on this fascinating tour through the mind of a creationist: An Earth that’s 4,499,994,000 years younger than it looks (because scientists, like the IRS, are apparently agents of Satan), dinosaurs living with humans who live to be hundreds of years old, a global flood via magical comet, anti-government conspiracy theories, a single drop of water that can cover the whole Earth if you just spread it thin enough, and more.</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Hovind’s “doctoral dissertation”: <a href="https://wlstorage.net/file/kent-hovind-doctoral-dissertation.pdf">https://wlstorage.net/file/kent-hovind-doctoral-dissertation.pdf</a>.</p> <p>Hovind’s “debate” with evolutionary biologist Dr. Massimo Pigliucci, moderated by Reginald Finley: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rphxOs5YFcY">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rphxOs5YFcY</a>.</p> <p>Tracey Holley, “Evolution is the Root of All Evil: An Examination of the Paranoid Style of Creation Science Evangelism,” <a href="http://www.ijessnet.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/2.pdf">http://www.ijessnet.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/2.pdf</a>.</p> <p>Dave E.

#051 - Prometheus Review
<p>In this episode, the Trolling with Logic crew reviews the 2012 sci-fi travesty “Prometheus,” aka “Erich von Däniken’s Wet Dream.” It’s the prequel to the classic sci-fi horror “Alien” franchise, but this time it’s not a wonderful Lovecraftian tale of blood, terror, entropy, and female empowerment. Instead, “Prometheus” is about an over-expository, scientifically-illiterate mess of a movie that features a spaceship full of god-botherers who don’t understand how carbon-dating works and a misanthropic android who embark on a voyage to a distant planet to unravel the mystery of where humans came from. <br />To discover the answer, which would make even Michael Tellinger blush in embarrassment, our heroes must discover for themselves the spiritual joy of natural xeno-child birth. And also the terror of only being able to run in a straight line when running from a rolling donut-shaped alien spacecraft.</p> <p>Like the show?

#50 - Mission to Mars review
<p>Mission to Mars<br />In this episode, the Trolling with Logic crew reviews “Mission to Don Cheadle's Tent,” aka “Skittles on Mars,” aka Brian De Palma’s 2000 fantasy film “Mission to Mars.” This movie tells the story of a band of scientific illiterates who are exiled to Mars on an ill-fated mission sponsored by Mars Inc. and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. On the voyage there, the crew succeeds in demonstrating their utter incompetence, yet still somehow manage to land on the red planet unscathed so they can plant an American flag and fail at science even more. <br />“Mission to Mars” IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0183523/</p> <p><br />Like the show?

#049 - Capricorn One Review
<p>In this episode of Trolling with Logic, the team learns that the only thing better than blasting off for Mars is a high-stakes helicopter chase in a desert on Earth. Nathan, Cal, and Jenn review the 1977 action thriller “Capricorn One,” the story of three astronauts who are unwittingly recruited to participate in a government conspiracy to fake a Mars landing and who must run for their lives from government mercenaries when they refuse to play along with the ruse. It’s also the story of an intrepid journalist who helps expose the hoax thanks to the government being powerless to kill him no matter what.</p> <p>We talk about the cultural impact this film had on the conspiracy-theory community in general and the moon-landing conspiracy theorists specifically and the implausibility of such a massive conspiracy ever getting off the ground. We also ask some important questions: Why are government snipers such poor shots? How much does it cost to crop-dust a field? Will Nathan’s prediction that this movie will get the Michael Bay remake treatment come true? We wrap up with Nathan doing a dramatic reading of Dr. Seuss’ “Fox in Socks.”</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>“Capricorn One” on IMDb: <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077294/">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077294/</a></p> <p>David Robert Grimes, “On the Viability of Conspiratorial Beliefs,” <em>PLOS ONE</em> 11(3): e0151003. <a href="https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0147905">https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0147905</a>.</p>

#048 - Gattaca Review
<p>"For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving... maybe I'm going home." - In this episode of TwL Cal, Nate, Jenn and Marty review the cult classic Sci-Fi "Gattaca" which is a dystopian look at a possible designer society where children are screened for genetic deficiences and the problems this would bring.</p> <p><em><strong>From wikipedia<br /><br /></strong><strong>"Gattaca</strong> is a 1997 American <a title="Science fiction film" href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_fiction_film">science fiction film</a> written and directed by <a title="Andrew Niccol" href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Niccol">Andrew Niccol</a>.

#047 - Cambrian Geology with Fred Bowyer
<p>Be prepared, this episode of Trolling with Logic is very science-heavy. But that’s why we love it. Nathan, Cal, and Jenna are joined by none other than Jenna’s brother Fred Bowyer! Fred Bowyer studies at The University of Edinburgh’s School of GeoSciences, where he is working in a PhD program specializing in the geochemistry of the Ediacaran Period -- the period lasting from about 635 to 542 million years ago -- which preceded the famous Cambrian Period.</p> <p>Fred provides us with an overview of the research he’s involved with, and how modern geochemical and geophysical techniques and technology have enabled scientists to resolve Darwin’s famous dilemma and come to an understanding of the environmental conditions way back at the dawn of animal life prior to the so-called “Cambrian Explosion.” We talk about what equipment scientists in this field are using, a primer on how fossils form, why pseudoscientific creationist arguments against geological dating techniques are wrong, the question of whether a rise in oxygen precipitate the evolution of animal life in the Cambrian, what dissolving rocks with acid can tell us about prehistoric atmospheres, and more. “Ediacaran Park” may not be as entertaining as Jurassic Park, but hearing from an active researcher in this prehistoric period reminds us of the amazing power and long reach of science and technology to illuminate aspects of the distant past unreachable by earlier generations of scientists.</p> <p> </p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Andrew H.

#046 - Network Review
<p>We’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore! In this episode Nathan, Cal and Jenn review Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 dark satire “Network,” the eerily-prophetic and highly prescient story of a down-and-out television news anchor named Howard Beale whose on-air descent into madness turns him into a populist icon that millions tune in to see. But when his pro-human spirit message runs afoul the agenda of the “corporate cosmology” of the infotainment industry, “the mad prophet of the airwaves” Beale changes course and begins preaching a new message: nihilism. <br />Links</p> <p>IMDb: <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074958/">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074958/</a> <br />Dave Itzkoff’s book-length analysis of the movie, mentioned by Nathan on this episode: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Mad-Hell-Network-Fateful-Angriest/dp/0805095691">https://www.amazon.com/Mad-Hell-Network-Fateful-Angriest/dp/0805095691</a> <br />James Parker, “Madder Than Hell: How Network Anticipated Contemporary Media,” <a href="https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/03/madder-than-hell/357572/">https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/03/madder-than-hell/357572/</a> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

#045 - Christine (2016) Review
<p> <strong>Content Warning</strong>: In this episode there are lengthy discussions about suicide, mental illness and specifically, depression. </p> <p style="text-align:justify;">In this episode we review the 2016 movie "Christine" and the issues arising from the film. Christine is a biographical look at the life and tragic suicide of the news reporter, Christine Chubbuck. Christine infamously shot herself live on air in 1974.</p> <p style="text-align:justify;">Film synopsis "In Sarasota, Fla., circa 1974, an ambitious, 29-year-old reporter is relentlessly motivated to succeed. She knows she has talent, but being a driven career woman in the '70s comes with its own challenges, especially when competition for a promotion and a tumultuous home life lead to a dissolution of self. With ratings in the cellar, the station manager issues a mandate to deliver juicier and more exploitative stories, a story firmly at odds with her serious brand of issue-based journalism."</p> <p style="text-align:justify;">If you are affected by the issues raised in the movie or by our discussion, please seek help<br />samaritans uk: <a href="http://www.samaritans.org/">www.samaritans.org/</a><br />samaritans USA: <a href="http://www.samaritansusa.org/">http://www.samaritansusa.org/</a><br />US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.</p> <p style="text-align:justify;">Christine on Netflix: <a href="https://www.netflix.com/title/80097814">https://www.netflix.com/title/80097814</a><br />Story of Christine Chubbuck: <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christine_Chubbuck">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christine_Chubbuck</a></p> <p style="text-align:justify;">Synopsis "In Sarasota, Fla., circa 1974, an ambitious, 29-year-old reporter is relentlessly motivated to succeed.

#044 - Treknology with Ethan Siegel
<p>Captain’s Log, Stardate 11708.05. The Trolling with Logic crew welcomes aboard Dr. Ethan Siegel, an astrophysicist with expertise in cosmological perturbations. He has reported on his journeys “Beyond the Galaxy” in his book carrying that title, published two years ago. We have invited him on board to brief us on his latest research endeavor, an upcoming book entitled “Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive.” The question we are trying to answer: Are the technological advances that make possible the universe inhabited by millions of Trekkies an impossible pipe dream, or is such technology becoming more and more achievable with every forward step in understanding and harnessing the physical world?</p> <p>From tricorders, hyposprays, replicators, and Synthehol to warp drive, holodecks, and the ethical conundrums we must face if we ever get our transporter working, we explore just how blurry the line between science fiction and science is becoming. Is our crew in for a hard awakening, or will Dr Siegel convince us that the next generation of technology is closer to home than any of us realized?</p> <p> </p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Ethan Siegel on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/StartsWithABang">https://twitter.com/StartsWithABang</a></p> <p>Ethan Siegel’s Forbes column “Starts with a Bang”: <a href="https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/">https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/</a></p> <p>Ethan Siegel’s “Starts with a Bang” podcast: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ethan-siegel-172073460/">https://soundcloud.com/ethan-siegel-172073460/</a></p> <p>Ethan Sigel’s book “Treknology” available for pre-order here: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Treknology-Science-Star-Tricorders-Drive/dp/0760352631">https://www.amazon.com/Treknology-Science-Star-Tricorders-Drive/dp/0760352631<br /><br /></a></p> <hr /><p>As always, many thanks to our patrons.

#043 - Beware the Slenderman
<p>In May 2014, two 12 year-old girls lured another girl their age into the woods in the town of Waukesha, Wisconsin. Their victim was stabbed multiple times but narrowly survived. What drove these two young girls to commit such an act? They were inspired by the fictional online Creepypasta character known as Slenderman, a very tall, thin, faceless, humanoid figure with tentacles. In another TwL movie review, Nathan, Cal, and Lundi discuss the chilling HBO documentary “Beware the Slenderman,” which examines this incident with actual footage from detectives’ interrogations of the two girls, interviews with the girls’ families, and interviews with psychologists, psychiatrists, and experts in “digital folklore” and meme replication.</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Beware the Slenderman official website: <a href="http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/beware-the-slenderman">http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/beware-the-slenderman</a></p> <p>“The Slender Man” page on the Creepypasta Wiki: <a href="http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Slender_Man">http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Slender_Man</a></p> <p>MrCreepyPasta YouTube channel: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/MrCreepyPasta">https://www.youtube.com/user/MrCreepyPasta</a></p> <p>Red Letter Media, “Did Red Letter Media Invent Slenderman?” <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zgq3k2qCZgg">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zgq3k2qCZgg</a></p>

#042 - Comics and Science with Miles Greb
<p>On this episode, Cal and Nathan speak with special guest Miles Greb, a Seattle-based comic writer, folk singer, and advocate for science, skepticism, and atheism. He has authored science-and-skepticism-based comics in the optimistic sci-fi tradition, including “After the Gold Rush,” a series of comics chronicling the adventures of a distant future in which a 16 year-old biologist who grew up on Saturn’s moon Titan returns to a sparsely-populated Earth to find she is the last scientist.</p> <p>We talk to Miles about the value of comics as a storytelling medium, the importance of optimistic sci-fi in a landscape dominated by pessimistic dystopian stories, why science and the humanities should cross paths, and his experiences advocating for science outreach and education through campaigns like the March for Science.</p> <p>Links:</p> <p>Miles Greb’s website: <a href="http://www.afterthegoldrush.space/">http://www.afterthegoldrush.space/</a></p> <p>Miles Greb on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/Goldrushcomic">https://twitter.com/Goldrushcomic</a></p> <p>Miles Greb’s Kickstarter campaign for “After the Gold Rush”: <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/919052445/after-the-gold-rush-1-3-a-return-to-optimistic-sci">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/919052445/after-the-gold-rush-1-3-a-return-to-optimistic-sci</a></p>

#039 - Satanism with Magister Bill M
<p>About the church of satan "Founded on April 30, 1966 c.e. by Anton Szandor LaVey, we are the first above-ground organization in history openly dedicated to the acceptance of Man’s true nature—that of a carnal beast, living in a cosmos that is indifferent to our existence. To us, Satan is the symbol that best suits the nature of we who are carnal by birth—people who feel no battles raging between our thoughts and feelings, we who do not embrace the concept of a soul imprisoned in a body. He represents pride, liberty, and individualism—qualities often defined as Evil by those who worship external deities, who feel there is a war between their minds and emotions.</p> <p>As Anton LaVey explained in his classic work The Satanic Bible, Man—using his brain—invented all the Gods, doing so because many of our species cannot accept or control their personal egos, feeling compelled to conjure up one or a multiplicity of characters who can act without hindrance or guilt upon whims and desires. All Gods are thus externalized forms, magnified projections of the true nature of their creators, personifying aspects of the universe or personal temperaments which many of their followers find to be troubling. Worshipping any God is thus worshipping by proxy those who invented that God. Since the Satanist understands that all Gods are fiction, instead of bending a knee in worship to—or seeking friendship or unity with—such mythical entities, he places himself at the center of his own subjective universe as his own highest value."</p> <p>We Satanists are thus our own “Gods,” and as beneficent “deities” we can offer love to those who deserve it and deliver our wrath (within reasonable limits) upon those who seek to cause us—or that which we cherish—harm.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>"Opening and closing quotes: Recording of Anton LaVey from “The Occult Explosion” LP (United Artists Records, 1973)</p> <p>Opening music: Anton LaVey playing the calliope, from Nick Bougas’ documentary “Speak of the Devil” (Wavelength Video, 1993, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2Nlu7LMWUI).</p> <p>Closing music: Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” played backwards.</p> <p>Church of Satan official website: www.churchofsatan.com/</p> <p>Anton LaVey’s “The Satanic Bible” on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Satanic-Bible-Anton-Szandor-Lavey/dp/0380015390</p> <p>Church of Satan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChurchofSatan</p> <p>Bill M., “The Darth Vader Shirt,” http://www.churchofsatan.com/the-darth-vader-shirt.php</p> <p>Bill M., “Satanism is not a Congregational Religion,” http://www.churchofsatan.com/satanism-is-not-a-congregational-religion.php</p> <p>Bill M., “Hail Science!

#029 - Mission to Mars with Astronaut Abby
<p style="text-align:justify;">We talk possible missions to mars in addition to general space travel topics with special guest Abby Harrison AKA Astronaut Abby.<br /><br />Abigail Harrison is a girl with a dream. She aspires to be a scientist and dreams of becoming a NASA astronaut. But it doesn’t stop there–<strong>she also dreams of becoming the first astronaut to Mars</strong>. With a dreams this big, it takes setting goals and working hard each day to make them a reality. She is one step closer, having completed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity–traveling to Russia in May 2013 as a special guest of Italian <a href="http://lucaparmitano.com/"><strong>Astronaut Luca Parmitano</strong></a> to be a part of a legendary Soyuz launch–<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soyuz_TMA-09M"><strong>Soyuz-TMA-09M</strong></a>. After the launch, Abby was charged with a BIG responsibility: she served as Parmitano’s <a href="http://astronautabby.com/earth-liaison/"><strong>Earth Liaison</strong></a>, bringing space down to Earth by sharing Parmitano’s space mission with her followers and other young people interested in space. Abby has also created a worldwide outreach program called the <a href="http://astronautabby.com/nasa-sequester-suspends-education-public-outreach/"><strong>#FutureOfSpace</strong></a> that is geared toward igniting passion and excitement about space, STEM and dreams with kids around the world. It includes an email pen pal program, classroom visits, web chats, speaking at events and sharing on her social media channels and blog.</p> <h3 style="text-align:justify;">Early STEM Education</h3> <p style="text-align:justify;">Abby is committed to inspiring her generation, <a href="http://socialmediamarketing.uno/abby/what-is-the-mars-generation/"><strong>The Mars Generation</strong></a>, to dream big, act big and inspire others. Since the age of five, Abby has been dreaming of space and flying. A hands-on experience in the fifth grade cemented her commitment to her dream: Abby was chosen to participate in the Minneapolis Public School GEMS program (Girls in Engineering, Mathematics and Science) at her school. Four years later, she had built robots, conducted science experiments and participated in NASA’s weather balloon program through the University of Minnesota.</p> <h3 style="text-align:justify;">How AstronautAbby.com Got Started</h3> <p style="text-align:justify;">By 8th grade, Abby was a member of her school’s top-ranked Science Bowl team and had created an award-winning State History Day Project titled <a href="http://astronautabby.com/picture-history-day-project/"><strong>Debate and Diplomacy: The History of the ISS</strong></a>. The project spanned both history and science and included Abby’s interviews with astronauts as well as industry space experts like Susan Freedman, an NASA engineer for the International Space Station.</p> <p style="text-align:justify;">It was during this project that Abby created an online presence and became Astronaut Abby. She found the power of social media allowed her to connect with people around the world who were both space professionals as well as enthusiasts. In December 2011, Abby was invited as a guest blogger for NASA’s ISS blog, in which she wrote a post titled “<a href="http://blogs.nasa.gov/cm/blog/ISS%20Science%20Blog/posts/post_1324310720103.html"><strong>Meet a Teen with Space Dreams</strong></a>.” In March 2012, Abby was featured in an article on NASA’s education website titled “<a href="http://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/5-8/features/astronaut-abby-hearts-nasa.html"><strong>Astronaut Abby Hearts NASA</strong></a>.” In October of 2013, Abby was invited to present a TEDx talk in Tampa Bay. <a href="http://astronautabby.com/whats-your-mars-astronaut-abby-tedx-talk/"><strong>Her talk titled “What’s Your Mars?”</strong></a> has been shared around the globe, inspiring thousands of kids and adults to find their Mars and follow their own passion and purpose. <a href="http://astronautabby.com/whats-your-mars-astronaut-abby-tedx-talk/"><strong>Watch the video now to be inspired and please share with your friends!</strong></a></p> <p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Abby’s goal with her blog at AstronautAbby.com, </strong><a href="http://twitter.com/astronautabby"><strong>Twitter account,</strong></a> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/AstronautAbby"><strong>Facebook Page</strong></a><strong>,</strong> <a href="https://instagram.com/astronautabbyofficial/"><strong>Instagram account</strong></a><strong> and </strong><a href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/103830785012506063773/+Astronautabby/about"><strong>Google+ Page</strong></a><strong> is to share her experience of reaching for these amazing dreams and to inspire other teens and young adults to set their own goals and reach for the stars.</strong> Abby hopes to encourage adults to continue to invest in STEM education and to re-commit to the research of NASA and human space exploration. She takes the responsibility of being the Ambassador of <a href="http://socialmediamarketing.uno/abby/what-is-the-mars-generation/"><strong>The Mars Generation</strong></a> and continues to empower her generation to keep the torch burning.</p> <h3 style="text-align:justify;">Working Hard Everyday to Achieve Her Goals</h3> <p style="text-align:justify;">Having graduated high school in June 2015, Abby took all of her courses her senior year at the University of Minnesota as part of an exclusive post-secondary education program through Minneapolis Public Schools. Abby continues to conduct her STEM and Space outreach program as well as volunteer to help run kids science programs within her community. She has been a Model UN member and part of the Youth in Government Program through her four years of high school. She has also participated in the statewide steering committee for these programs. Abby served as a captain of her high school gymnastics team, a varsity member of her high school dive team and a varsity member of her high school track and field team with pole vaulting as her main event. It’s obvious that keeping Abby on the ground is a challenge, as she loves to be flying through the air!</p> <p style="text-align:justify;">Abby is attending <a href="http://www.wellesley.edu/"><strong>Wellesley College</strong></a>, where retired NASA Astronaut Pamela Melroy also attended. She plans to study microbiology and physics with a goal of attaining a doctorate and becoming a scientist. The one piece of advice Abby always refers back to in her following her own dreams and also encouraging others was given to her by her mentor, <a href="http://www.esa.int/esaHS/SEMIDK0OWUF_astronauts_0.html"><strong>Astronaut Luca Parmitano</strong></a>: “Follow your heart in your studies and do what you love. NASA is looking for people who are passionate about what they do.” This counsel has helped Abby to set goals and navigate a path to space that not only prepares her for applying to become a NASA astronaut, but also keeps her excited about the process. She continues to correspond with Astronaut Luca Parmitano. He has graciously offered to be Abby’s mentor as she works for a goal that may seem impossible to some. <a href="http://astronautabby.com/dreams-true-shuttle-launch-experience/"><strong>He stated in an interview Abby conducted </strong></a>several years ago “Someday I will be training you to be an astronaut.” It’s a dream that Abby hopes to see become reality.<br /><br />Thank you to Our Patrons:<br />Josh, Society for Advancement of Science <br /><a class="yt-uix-sessionlink" href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVXF--HIS6h1KBqlntnzc-Q">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVXF...</a><br /><br />MicroBlogganism:<br /><a class="yt-uix-sessionlink" href="https://www.youtube.com/user/MicroBlogganism">https://www.youtube.com/user/MicroBlo...</a><br /><br /><br />Like the show?

He came to YouTube with the goal of "show[ing] through the use of solid evidence and rational argument what is junk science, and what is real." In so doing,  <br /><br />C0nc0rdance made dozens of videos examining: <br />Medical evidence of various pseudosciences and quack medicine (such as acupuncture and homeopathy). <br /><br />Alternative medicine, such as if medical marijuana is effective. <br />AIDS and HIV denialism <br />Vaccine hysteria <br />Sweeteners <br /><br />Finally, he also examines several myths involving technology and health, such as whether cellphones cause ear cancer. <br />Due to his high knowledge of health and biology, C0nc0rdance became a strong defender of the theory of evolution against religious dogma and a strong critic against intelligent design. He targeted online creationists (such as VenomFangX and NephilimFree) and even confronted the Discovery Institute (particularly Casey Luskin). <br /><br />He came under a lot of fire for his (age-restricted) video alleging that marijuana was dangerous, even getting a death threat he called "disturbingly specific." <br /><br />C0nc0rdance is also very critical of faith-based medicine and prayer. He made several videos providing he data and reports of young children who died because their parents failed or refused to give them proper medical treatment, and rather resorted to prayer, exorcisms, and faith-healing. <br /><br />C0nc0rdance is also a frequent co-host on the online Magic Sandwich Show. <br /><a href="http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/C0nc0rdance" class="yt-uix-sessionlink" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;border:0px;color:rgb(22,122,198);text-decoration:none;background:transparent;">http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/C0nc0rdance</a> <br /><br /><br /><br />Like the show?

I am originally from a small town in the North East of England called Middlesbrough, but have spend a large potion of my adult life living in Manchester. I am a chemist who is is currently working in industry, but what little free time I have I spend sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest and angry rants at pseudoscience opponents. I studied chemistry specialising in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester and Toronto. Later in my career, I moved more towards bio-chemistry and worked on projects including the synthesising various nucleic acid analogues for non-enzymatic transcription and controlling gene expression using a mutant riboswitch. I have over 7 years of experience working in a research lab, which has given me the skills I need to research and debunk virus psuedoscience theories. Some of the theories I have discussed on my YouTube channel including AIDS denialists, 911 truthers, the anti-vaccination movement and homeopathy to name a few.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;"><br /></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;">https://www.youtube.com/user/powerm1985</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;"><br /></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;">About James.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;"><br /></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size:13.3333px;">James is a microbiologist who specialises in evolutionary microbiology.
