      From Sigma Xi, something to check your administration on?

      A QUICK EVOLUTION OF RUFFLED FEATHERS
      from Newsday

      How do you make a room of university presidents squirm?

      Ply them with salmon and sirloin steak and then serve up the political
      hot
      potato of teaching evolution at the high school level.

      In a wide-ranging and sometimes heated dinner discussion among media
      representatives, Intel chief executive Craig Barrett and the presidents
      of
      eight major research universities, nearly everyone agreed that science
      in
      the United States is losing ground to foreign competitors. Many in
      attendance at the Science Coalition's yearly media roundtable, held at
      The
      Penn Club in Manhattan on Monday, cited fast-charging China and India as
      important new players, and bemoaned a lack of funding for basic research
      at
      home. And several attendees blasted the nation's K-12 science education
      as
      woefully inadequate.

        Societies are systems- how many times do we have to say that?
        We should probably keep pushing for earlier social science classes as well.
