Things and links I liked:
- I just renewed my membership in the National Association of Rocketry (I maintain a separate rocketry blog but haven't updated in a while because it's not flying season), which includes a $2 million liability insurance policy for rocket launches. Oddly, the notice I got with my renewal says this: "NAR insurance does not cover any activities which involve use of alcoholic beverages, criminal assaults and batteries, nuclear accidents or sexual abuse." I can understand the others, but seriously, "nuclear accidents?" Was that necessary?
- My favorite blog discovery of last week is "Covering Health" on health care journalism. Here's a post on balancing daily reporting and narratives.
- Dave Algoso (who I met at the AidWatch conference this weekend) writes "Would you hire me if I disagreed with you? What if I did it publicly?"
- My friend Kate Otto on planning and pregnancy in Indonesia.
- On DFID's aid review.
- Something that brings left and right together (sort of): cancer research.
- The typical human is a 28 year old Chinese man.
- For those currently applying to grad school, here's a useful video on the Harvard Kennedy School application.
