Hello Science, Reason, and Irish for a day (or more), Inclined Readers,

I’m going to go much lighter this week. Last week was loaded with a lot of links and content.

missed it last week but Feb 11 it was International Day of Women and Girls in Science. I personally think more than a month should be “allotted” for this rather than just a day. But keep in mind that today is the illustrious St. Pat’s Day and There have been many Irish scientists and inventors that should be given credit where credit is due! Scientists should have many days throughout the year dedicated to them! You might consider getting ready for Nov 10-17! Here’s one more article of stimulating thoughts and conversation.

Last week, science faired well at the Academy Awards with Oppenheimer taking the best picture award. Too bad women were so underrepresented. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it.

“At 3:30 we returned on just in time for Sir Norman Lockyer’s Eclipse drill… they were guite ready for the Eclipse if it should come a day too soon!”

So let’s take a look at some upcoming opportunities coming in the next week. I think these look particularly interesting.

2- The UFO Movie THEY Don’t Want You to See – Livestream Th @ 4:00
