Deborah Blum of the blog Speakeasy Science has a good blog post up on why scientists need to get off their bums and be better at communication.


Gimpyblog's Posterous gets critical of the TAM2010 meeting in London, in "TAM London and Champagne Skeptics - the haute bourgeoisie of critical thinking".


The Magistrate's Blog has a good post up on just what beyond all doubt means, just what the balance of doubt means, and justice.


Dr. Deb has a fascinating blog post up, "Therapy 'Service Dogs'". While on psychiatry, the blogger Frontier Psychiatrist has a good review up of the book, "Estates: An Intimate History", by Lynsey Hanley; his review focuses on mental health in council estates (what Americans call "the projects").


An interesting guest blog post on the subject of empathy (probably flawed but worthwhile reading), by Livia Blackburne, is a neuroscience graduate student at MIT, posted on Nathan Bransford's blog (Nathan Bransford is a literary agent): "Sally Feels Your Pain. Harry Just Points and Laughs".


The Naked Pastor has a blog post up, "How to be nasty religiously".


Rebecca Horne of the blog Visual Science has a good post up touching on the important topic of illegal hardwood tree-felling, in "Felling Ancient Trees is Risky Business".


Christie Wilcox of the blog Observations Of A Nerd has a good post up, "Great Migrations by Nat Geo: Two Thumbs Up", about National Geographic covering animal migrations.


Jean Kazez if the blog In Living Color has compiled into one her blog posts reviewing Sam Harris' book "The Moral Landscape".


And the CNN Belief Blog has an interesting post up on how Albanian Muslims helped save 2,000 Jews during World War Two.

    I might point out that a Michael Faulkner used the comment section to add a long review of the book.
