New Tangled Bank, and other must-read posts

The most recent edition of Tangled Bank, your one-stop science blogging carnival, is up over at Living the Scientific Life.

In addition, there are a few other posts I’ve been meaning to plug:

Nick on Texas House overturning mandatory HPV vaccination.

Burt at Panda’s Thumb on Why you should care if cattle get fourth-generation cephalosporins and why doctors need to know about evolution (a takedown of this Discovery Institute essay).

And a nice follow-up to those: Mike on why antibiotic resistance matters.

Carnival barking

I was planning on writing up this aforementioned talk for this afternoon’s post, but there ended up being so much to say about it (and not enough time, alas, as I have to run to a faculty meeting shortly) that I’ll save it until Monday. (I *will* say that it was jaw-dropping, but not in a good way). In the meantime, the fortnightly carnival of science blogging, Tangled Bank, is up over at Neurotopia after a few days of computer issues, and the latest Skeptics’ Circle can be found at The Second Sight.
