Blog carnivals

The Tangled Bank #116, the blog carnival for all things science with an emphasis on the life sciences, and the Giant’s Shoulders #4, the blog carnival for classic science papers and other historical science tidbits, are up at Pro-science and second order approximation, respectively, with a mention of my own 137, my expose of the history of the fine-structure constant and its significance.

For lovers of all things space, the Carnival of Space #75 is up at the Lounge of the Lab Lemming with mention of my discussion of why dark matter doesn’t just gravitationally collapse.

Skeptical readers can take a look at the 98th Skeptic’s Circle on the Uncredible Hallq, including my article that we need not lose hope at the pervasiveness of medical quackery.
