So we’ve been posting again at a pretty steady pace! If you missed it, here’s what we wrote about the last two months. Apparently, we’ve been in the mood for wildlife.

– Jay’s nature photos, let him show you them!

– What’s thinking outside of the box compared to thinking outside of your scale?

– Parrots like their food rancid and nasty. (Emily’s post incidentally caught a rather radical wave on Facebook!)

Everything awesome you ever needed to know about those alien-looking Horseshoe Crabs.

– A colorful fireworks show courtesy of fireflies.

– Why a sustainable economy isn’t automatically a sustainable ecology.

– What massive patience it takes to hunt for meteorites in the scalding sun.


March Wrap Up

This blog advises against giving psychiatric drugs to fish

The Sieve’s writers discussed a variety of topics in March, from log jams to fish to planets to GPS. Here are a few links if you missed them:

– Over a century go, there was an enormous log jam, over 100 miles long in the American South.

– When antidepressants get into the water, they can have screwy effects on fish.

– Three cheers for the coolness of outer space!

– We’re at a point where drivers take GPS tech for granted. So how does it figure out where you are exactly?

– Calvin and Hobbes had an undercurrent of science commentary and humor.

– Check out the secrets and subtleties of the National Cryptology Museum.

Reflecting on February

In case you missed it, here’s a quick run-down of each of the inaugural blog posts from The Sieve’s writers this past month.

– Why do veterinarians sometimes throw newborn puppies through the air? It makes sense when you know the answer.

– On a long road trip? Why not gawk at some hawks while you pass the time?

– “So there I was, dude. No shit there I was.” River guides know how to tell a good tall tale.

– They may be called blood thinners, but that little term doesn’t reflect what really goes on in your bloodstream.
