Saving U.S. Science 667

beebo famulus writes "Twenty years from now, experts doubt that America will remain a dominant force in science as it was during the last century. The hand wringing has generated a couple of new ideas to deal with the dilemma. Specifically, one expert says that the federal government should create contests and prize awards for successful science ideas, while another advises that the National Science Foundation fund more graduate students and increase the amount of the fellowships."

md8mart writes to let us know about the imminent shutdown of the site that distributes Pine patches. From the RSS feed of Patches for Pine we read the following bad news for all Pine users: "The Department of Mathematics of the University of Washington will close the account that hosts my Patches for Pine site. I would like to thank the Department of Mathematics for having hosted this site for so many years. I do not have current plans to move this site, but this site will disappear on December 15, 2006. Thank you to everyone who supported me by positive feedback and encouragement to do this work through the years. I will update this information as it becomes available."

Most of the people here dont care or hate Star Trek and rank it with the lowly shows like fearfactor and other reality shows. The idiots dont see that startrek has potential to inspire and does not encourage kids to do bad things like WWE does.

Star Trek isnt crap. If you want to see crap, tehn watch something like fearfactor or any other reality TV show where people eat out of toilets, have to get covered in worms etc. It is a good show and inspires people to do things like get jobs at NASA. I am a fan of it myself and this is my opinion of Star Trek. IT should continue to at least season 7
