    In the education women and girls department, here is the volunteer sign-up link for the Expanding Your Horizons day. It's a day of STEM for young ladies 5-8th grade. An overview of the event is:

    I've been the MC for several years now, and it's great fun to see the young women start to interact with new peers, and their excitement about science.

    I can't get this image out of my mind as I read about China refusing plastics for recycling. It makes me question deeply what does China truly do with the waste? from the article The European plastic ban was on NPR just tonight.

      Good question, and good post, Shannon. IMO, recycling is no longer the panacea we once thought it was. In truth, it has always been at the end of the R's:  Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, (and if all that fails) Recycle!
