Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est (And thus knowledge itself is power)
-- Sir Francis Bacon.
Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) -- "Scientia Pro Publica 40: Answers to 28 popular and not-so-popular questions" -- was published by Alvaro at his blog, Sharp Brains. This edition was so popular that I am taking Scientia back to a weekly format, at least through Christmas, unless of course, we don't get enough submissions. So if you'd like to host an edition of Scientia, please do let me know, either in the comment thread here or by emailing me.
To share yours, or others', excellent writing, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right (be aware that widget doesn't upload when the mother site is nonfunctional, and ALWAYS check your email/spam filter for your submission receipt to be sure it was sent properly). Alternatively, you can also send the link directly to the Scientia Blog Carnival email address.
The next scheduled issue will be published 4 October by Bob O'Hara at Deep Thoughts and Silliness so check the schedule and let me know which week you'd like to host [see schedule]. I will be accepting hosts soon for the 2011 carnival season (has a year passed already??), so be ready to volunteer to host Scientia Pro Publica on your favorite date (as soon as I get my seemingly chronic wifi problems resolved). If you have always wanted to host an issue of Scientia Pro Publica on your blog, now is your chance!
As always, we need submissions of excellent quality science, nature and medical blog writing, so don't hesitate to provide your assistance: if you read or write something that you wish to share with a larger audience, be sure to send us the link now (note: some links have been tweeted to me; I promise to do my best to follow those up, but cannot make any guarantees at this time!)
