Alan Alda asks "What is Time?"

Award-winning actor and director Alan Alda has a passion for science, and more specifically, how to help scientists better communicate with students and the public of all ages. He founded the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University for this reason, and created a yearly contest where scientists are asked to explain a concept so that an 11 year old can understand it. The Flame Challenge is judged by thousands of 11 year olds, and this year’s topic is What is Time? Alan Alda spent a few minutes on the phone with Dean Regas talking about how his love of science began, and his goals for this contest, in this month’s Looking Up.

Movie Review: Django Unchained

I know many of us have gone to a movie simply because of the “over-hype” where the end product was nowhere nearly as good as the sales job. I have just discovered another arena of disappointment: “over-expectation.” As a big fan of westerns and of the films of Quentin Tarantino, I have awaited Django Unchained as if it were the star on top of the Christmas tree. Imagine my surprise when the film he delivered did not live up to what I envisioned he could deliver.
