Latest From The National Science Advisory Board

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.

    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

    Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!
