Tweet of the Week: UC flack to me: Email is best way to contact researcher since many depts ditched phones due to budget cuts. What a world.— Sam Lemonick (@SamLemonick) March 28, 2013 When I read this I thought-- Really?? Then I figured, well, why not? I haven't had a land line since college. But I'm still wondering how big a chunk of change a phone bill really is in the grand scheme of the UC budget. Rachel will be handling this roundup during April. Until May, chem-keteers.

This Week On CENtral Science: Fake Crystal Skulls, Too Many Bachelor’s Degree Chemists, and More

Hey CENtral Science readers- I'm in the throes of ScienceOnline2013. A confab of this many scientists and sci-communicators means I had tons of material for tweet-of-the-week selection. I pick a tweet with a purpose. This one, from the #scio13 melee, will be a useful talking point for my session tomorrow with Dr. Rubidium-chemophobia and chemistry in the modern world.
