women in History & some Friday Science

She is the gal who fought her way onto a newspaper as a reporter (instead of social news) and traipsed around the world to beat the fictional account put forth in Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days"Over on Archimedes Notebook we're checking in with the hawks at Cornell - they've been refurbishing the nest over winter. Does that mean they'll be moving in next week? Last year Big Red laid her first egg on March 15. Keep your eyes on the bird-cam.And don't forget to mouse on over to STEM Friday (link on Archimedes) where the hot topic today is Women in the STEM fields.
