New Diversity in Science Carnival Posted

The latest Diversity in Science Carnival has been posted at Thus Spake Zuska. This edition's theme is women in science, and she's linked to some excellent posts.

The next carnival will be hosted by DN Lee at Urban Science Adventures! on the topic "Dealing With Diversity - what have you done with it, what obstacles have you faced, what success stories do you have". The deadline is May 20, so I should have time to actually post something for it.

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.

I know this may well be off the topic under current discussion, but I'm shopping for a different school to finish my geoscience degree. Basically, there is a pretty archaic (sort of misogynistic) paradigm where I've been and I'm thinking to set me on a better footing for grad school I'd rather transfer now - my question to all you wise ones - any women friendly geoscience departments out there that you know of? All suggestions are welcome as I'll be doing some shopping over summer (a little time to make contacts and visit campuses) but I'd like "real" advice from real women scientists? I'd like to stick to the Midwest or Northwestern united states (not a warm weather person really!)

Thanks so much!
