Chicago's MSI is holding another "Month at the Museum" contest! The winner will get to spend 30 days inside the museum's grounds, documenting his or her experience via Twitter, YouTube and a blog. Cash prize includes $10,000 along with the tech gear they'd get to document their days. Disclaimer: I was one of the Finalists from last year's contest. — By avoision at 11:55 AM Thu

Scientific or Scientifical (http://idoubtit.wordpres)

Paranormal investigation groups claim to be scientific in their mission and activities. But, they don't reach that high bar. Instead, they mimic science and look "Scientifical". That may be enough for some people to take them seriously. — By S. Hill at 8:33 AM Wed

A vaccine to cure religious fundamentalism? (http://www.screedofmomus)

Running barefoot or with minimalist shoes is all the rage. And while the latter will lessen the impact of rocks, glass, sticks, and other debris the former will put your feet in direct contact. Throw in a screaming child and a baby jogger and this is what your feet might look like. — By y2kemo at 6:06 AM Tue

Putting science to use to answer the burning questions that keep us up at night: What is the launch velocity of a flying Sifaka lemur from Madagascar? I use the open source program Tracker to find out. Cool video, motion capture, and physics! — By Aatish at 6:13 AM Mon
