Help Science go Mainstream!

Hello, Universe!

I’m putting a dream I have had for a long time on center stage, by applying to be the host of a show on Oprah’s new network.  Specifically, I am proposing a sassy science show, where I would share how fun, interesting, and relevant science can be to one’s life.

I could really use your support for this adventure;  you can vote an unlimited amount of times (as long as this is not done by a ‘bot).  Comments would be great, too!

So why is this so important?!

Science is important to ALL of us, not just those going into scientific or technical careers.  Science informs your choices so you are a more informed voter, mother, and world citizen.  It touches on everything from medical choices for your family, what effect the choices you make have on the environment, and a general sense of wonder about exploring the world around us.

My audition focuses on science for the ladies, but I am certainly pro-educating the XX’s as well, but in general Oprah reaches a wide amount of women, many raising the next generation, and that is an audience that hasn’t really been talked to about science in a cool mainstream way.

I was born to share science with the world, and think Oprah’s network is the best way to impact people and change the world by empowering people with a knowledge of science.

So please vote for me, and thank you for the support!!!

The problem with being a scientist

The problem with being a scientist is that you are constantly gathering data and using it to fit whatever theory you may have.  If you are lucky, you do this only in your field of expertise.  If, however, you are like moi, then you apply this to your life.  This is BAD.

For example:

Theory: I am a bad dresser. (I don’t think this is true, just work with me)

Data Collection: My friends don’t compliment me on a new cute outfit.

Data Interpretation: I must be a bad dresser.

Alternate Theory that is more likely: My friends have no fashion sense so do not know to compliment me. (this is not true either)

Some might attibute this thought process to the fact that chicks over-analyze.  I argue that we have naturally scientifically attuned minds.  Thoughts?
