This video won  the 2011 Readers’ Choice Labby Award from The Scientist magazine. Dr. Moffett would be a great biology professor!


Pure as the driven snow?

September 9, 2011

Pure as the driven snow. Well, maybe snow isn’t as pure as we might like to think. This video won the 2011 Judges’ Choice Labby award from The Scientist magazine. Certain types of bacteria can serve as nucleation sites for formation of snowflakes.

Gonna Miss KPAS

September 7, 2011

The website for the Kerrville Performing Arts Society has a letter informing patrons that the Board of Directors has voted to “suspend further presentations”.  The letter says the revised rental contract for use of the Cailloux Theater increased the cost so much that ticket prices could not be increased enough to compensate. It’s a pity. KPAS brought world-class artists such as the Berlin Symphony Wind Ensemble to Kerrville. Too bad the management of the Cailloux Theater would rather see it stand empty than negotiate a fair price with KPAS.
