A field guide for science writers : the official guide of the National Association of Science Writers by Deborah Blum( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the official text for the National Association of Science Writers. In the eight years since the publication of the first edition of A Field Guide for Science Writing, much about the world has changed. Some of the leading issues in today's political marketplace - embryonic stem cell research, global warming, health care reform, space exploration, genetic privacy, germ warfare - are informed by scientific ideas. Never has it been more crucial for the lay public to be scientifically literate. That's where science writers come in. And that's why it's time for an update to the Field Guide, already a staple of science writing graduate programs across the country. The academic community has recently recognized how important it is for writers to become more sophisticated, knowledgeable, and skeptical about what they write. More than 50 institutions now offer training in science writing. In addition mid-career fellowships for science writers are growing, giving journalists the chance to return to major universities for specialized training. We applaud these developments, and hope to be part of them with this new edition of the Field Guide. In A Field Guide for Science Writers, 2nd Edition, the editors have assembled contributions from a collections of experienced journalists who are every bit as stellar as the group that contributed to the first edition. In the end, what we have are essays written by the very best in the science writing profession. These wonderful writers have written not only about style, but about content, too. These leaders in the profession describe how they work their way through the information glut to find the gems worth writing about. We also have chapters that provide the tools every good science writer needs: how to use statistics, how to weigh the merits of conflicting studies in scientific literature, how to report about risk. And, ultimately, how to write. -- Amazon.com book description

Twentysomething : why do young adults seem stuck? by Robin Marantz Henig( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do so many twentysomethings seeem to be taking so long to grow up? Why are they moving back home with college degrees and no prospects? What does it mean to be young today? Did helicopter parents raise an entitled generation? And how different are things, really, from the way they used to be? In the summer of 2010, the author wrote an article for the New York Times Magazine called "What is it About 20-Somethings?" It generated enormous reader response and started a conversation that included both millennials and baby boomers. Now, working with her millennial daughter Samantha, she expands the project to give us a full portrait of what it means to be in your twenties today. Looking through many lenses, they ask whether emerging adulthood has truly become a new rite of passage. They examine the latest neuroscience and psychological research, the financial pressures young people face now, changing cultural expectations, the after effects of helicopter parenting, and the changes that have arisen from social media and all things Internet. Combing trhough the scientific research they find that while some things, like social media have changed the way twenty-somethings live; in other ways being young has always been like this. Moving back home with Mom and Dad, for instance, is not unique to kids today. Neither is making important life choices, although the number of choices today is unprecedented, and can be paralyzing. Most important, they have surveyed more than 120 millennials and baby boomers to give voice to both viewpoints of a conversation that is usually one-sided. This is a book about being young in our time written with insight into this disconcerting stage when young people have to start closing some doors after growing up with the mantra to keep all their options open
