I warned you

In the past 36 hours there were no donations in our Donor’s Choose challenge.  We are still well below our target with 5 classrooms to fund.  So step up and donate.  Listen, I know many of you think you don’t have any money donate. Spending the last 10 years of my life as a poor postdoc and graduate student I understand money woes.  But I am pretty positive that you have $10…you probably blew that on beer last week ;-).  You are not going to even notice a missing $10.  So go donate.  Better yet challenge a dollar per dollar match up to a set amount to encourage others to donate (leave a comment below).  I know our readers our awesome, I am just asking you to prove it.

And because there have been no donations in the last 36 hours…the worst video on Youtube I could find…

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, a National Science Foundation supported initiative. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web. His forthcoming book, Science of the South (http://www.scienceofthesouth.com/), connects cultural icons of South such as pecan pie with the science behind them.
