The Science Advisory Board is a reputable peer reviewed scientific publication I recommend to all of my students. If you want to keep abreast of the latest in science, become a member. I will always have these updates available to my readers. Coming soon is my article on the new CPR guidelines and the need for everyone to possess the knowledge to save a life.

Meet the new bloggers!FROM THE DIRECTOR'S DESK
Dear Dr. Counce, Thank you for your continued membership in The Science Advisory Board. As you may have noticed, in the past year we have made a number of substantive changes to the community intended to continue to provide you with more opportunities to interact, learn and share with your fellow members. The goal of each of these changes is to provide you with the most rewarding experience for life scientists on the web.
In addition to the changes we have already implemented, we are now very proud to announce we will soon be launching a brand new Rewards Catalog for our members. This new catalog will allow us to provide you with fresher and better rewards options, faster fulfillment and improved customer service. We hope you will be patient during this transition as we work to modernize this important aspect of our community!
Finally are also very proud to announce the newly formed SAB Steering Committee. These members were selected for their appointments from hundreds and hundreds of applications based on their professional accomplishments and commitment to The Science Advisory Board's mission. We are proud to welcome the following members to the committee:
Dr. Brian Taylor
Dr. George Perry
Dr. Marc Halatsch
Dr. Jan Kieleczawa
Dr. Venkatesh Shankar
Dr. Alex Gaither
As always, we thank you for your continued participation. Please contact me directly with any question, concerns or suggestions you may have about anything SAB!

SAB Members Donated Over $8,000 to Disaster Victims in Japan
The disaster in Japan has had a profound effect on people all over the world. Japan has been, and continues to be, a leader in the science and technology communities and The Science Advisory Board includes many Japanese members. SAB staffers recognized many of you would want to do something for Japan. Each year, SAB members choose to donate their ViewPoints and other earned honoraria to charitable organizations. This spring several hundred members took the opportunity to donate their points to the Red Cross's Japan and Pacific Relief Fund, which funds medical, food and resource relief to not only Japan, but other areas affected by the tsuanami. Thank you for your generosity. If you still want to donate, we are still providing an option in the SAB Rewards Catalog as well as within each survey invitation.
What's being talked about at SAB?
The Generational Gap...Does Age Matter?
"It has been said never to trust a scientist under the age of 30. This comment suggests that the generation gap between young scientists and established scientists continues to broaden." @euglena
"I disagree, strongly. Einstein, Fermi, Schrodinger and Feynman did most of their best work before the age of 30." @ansci
"very young researchers are too eager to please the PIs such that you teach them everything, you help them doing the work and then they say 'I did all of this myself' (!?). Excuse me?" @abreu
"young scientists are better than old scientists because old scientists are boring and young scientists are cool and fun. anyone over 45 is an old scientist and anyone under 38 is a young scientist." @arsalan_daudi
