Things have been a bit quiet here lately, so I thought I’d post a quick update with some of the stuff I’ve been up to.
First off, I’ve contributed an article about gunshot forensics (the idea of using the sound of a gunshot to help solve a crime) to the new issue of Guru magazine, out today. This issue also features articles about GM foods, social media, and the Fukushima disaster, and you can download it for free here.
I’m probably slightly biased, but I reckon Guru does a great job of making science accessible and easy to digest. The magazine is now in its 7th issue, and it’s really exciting to watch the number of writers and followers growing by the month. Good work, Dr Stu and co.
Elsewhere, I’ve written a piece for the current issue of BBC Focus magazine about the history and future of television (cool fact: the first TV viewers in the 1930s were called ‘lookers-in’), and I’ve also been writing regular blogs for the magazine’s website. Finally, I recently covered a news story for physicsworld.com about one of the most controversial debates in geology – how hotspot volcanoes such as the Hawaiian Islands are formed.
Anyway, that’s all for now folks. There’ll be another (more interesting) blog post before too long. Toodle pip.
