Our Future's So Bright ...

Don't for a minute think that our future is bleak and that our best days are behind us. Our kids are still the best and brightest in the world. That's not to say that our education system doesn't have problems - it does, but our best, are the best!

Hope for American Science:

Congratulations to Matthew Feddersen (left) and Blake Marggraff (second from left), both 18 years old, of Lafayette, California, on taking first prize in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair yesterday.

Their project, described at the Intel site, involves a potentially more effective and less expensive cancer therapy. The winners receive a $75,000 prize and the Gordon Moore Award, named for one of the founders of Intel. Teams from China, India, South Korea, Thailand, and the U.S. were among the finalists in 17 different science and engineering categories.
