Science Magazines

                Last week I found a science magazine published by my college ASU titled “The Science in Society Review.” Curious about the title and how it differed from other science magazines, I opened to one of the articles. My creative brain snapped to attention. One of the articles entitled “From Bacon to Human Babies: Ethical Conflict in Pigs as Surrogate Mothers.” You can guess what the article was about. As I read the piece, I thought to myself, ‘wow, just look at the ethical implications of this.’ Using pigs as surrogate mothers? The article focused on abortion babies, and how they could be ‘saved’ in this method. How controversial is that? Enough for a story’s worth!

                There were tons of articles, stuff on microwave safety, the political complications of H1N1 and its dangers, the risks of tanning, the reason why we don’t support ‘clean energy’ (apparently the government gives 40 billion annually in subsidies to fossil fuel industries which makes it uneconomical to invest in a cheaper, cleaner energy market), and all sorts of other stuff. What was really neat though were the two articles on ‘is creativity linked to madness’ (I found that a hoot) and the implications of doing DNA testing for refugees in the United Kingdom, basically saying that there’s a problem with Kenyans are passing themselves off as Somalis who have a greater chance at getting refugee status. Separating the real from the unreal, so to speak. That and trying to reunite separated refugee families. If you have any inkling of a creative mind, you’d realize the incredible ethical implications of this.

                So! My less of the day: Read magazines! I never really have before, and this one was made by students. Read magazines, and get story-staring ideas. Easy stuff.
