Saturday Stories: Shirtstorm, Ebola, Israel, and PE

Phil Plait in Slate does a masterful job explaining why shirtstorm matters.

Helen Branswell in Scientific American covers the rather dreary topic of how stopping Ebola in Africa might cruelly mean not developing a vaccine.

A great read from Lee Smith in Tablet on Israel, land for peace, and the challenges and responsibilities of a democracy.

Here's a fabulous video shared by Steve Crandall on the value of PE in schools (hint, it's not about weight)

Other than call to action for PPP

[And if you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, my piece this week in US News and World Report explored the myth that 95% of people fail diets]
