April 1, 2015. 5:30pm - 6:15pm. Salmon Library 111.

An April Fool's Day special. Doug will combine a humorous look at some very poor science news coverage in a world of newspapers, magazines, blogs, local news, and more with a discussion of the very real issue of finding high quality science resources (from those aimed at neophytes to sources aimed at PhDs) in a world where a tiny relation between A and B can result in headlines like, "A HAS CHEMICALS IN IT!" to "WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT B CAN KILL YOUR CHILDREN!". There are lots of free, or generally open, sources to find out good information about science...and there are lots of free, or generally open, sources of science misinformation.

Find out how to go beyond the pay-wall journal article without going insane.

This talk is open to all!

Anyone with questions can feel free to contact Doug Bolden at doug.bolden@uah.edu
