VIDEO: AAAS Colloquium Series: Leadership Lessons from Confronting Crises Video May 24, 2016 Leadership skills are often honed in the crucible of crisis, for issues ranging from a budget meltdown to a natural disaster. Science Editor-in-Chief and president-elect, National Academy of Sciences, Marcia McNutt is no stranger to crisis management—during her years helming the USGS, she was known as the "master of disaster." In this AAAS Colloquium Talk, she gives examples of lessons she has gained from her career of fighting oil spills, responding to earthquakes, reinventing institutions, and even combating scientific misconduct.

In January, AAAS Fellow E. Michelle Buchanan manages national lab's energy projects Michelle Buchanan leads efforts to solve our energy needs Member Spotlight January 25, 2016 Analytical chemistry is ubiquitous in our daily lives, from medical procedures to certifying organic food to crime fighting. “When you go into the hospital and they want to look at what’s wrong with you, they do a blood test. That’s all analytical chemistry. People who are looking at organic foods, they’ll run tests on them to see if there are pesticides, to make sure they really are organic. Any package of food that you have has an analysis of what the calories are; that’s analytical chemistry,” says analytical chemist, Michelle Buchanan. The Markup: The omnibus spending bill for FY 2016 Podcast January 11, 2016 - 1:00pm - 1:16pm Back in December, Congress passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill that President Barack Obama signed into law. It was good news for research and development appropriations as most science agencies saw their funding boosted back to pre-sequestration budget levels, even adjusted for inflation. In the latest edition of The Markup with Matt Hourihan, AAAS’s lead R&D budget analyst reviews expenditures for FY 2016 and highlights some of the big winners; NASA, NIH, and more!

Yet to date, only a handful of universities and colleges offer bioenergy programs or degrees—and the scope of the curriculum varies widely among institutions. AAAS member Kimi Grzyb, a doctoral candidate at Oregon State University (OSU), is working to change that. AAAS members selected 'most influential' by Tuesday, January 28, 2014 Twenty-three AAAS members were amongst the scientists selected as "The 50 Most Influential Scientists in the World Today," by, "a leading resource for prospective students seeking a college or university degree," according to Wayne Downs, the site's managing editor.  Hydrogen: The slow slog to zero emission energy Hydrogen: The slow slog to zero emission energy In Depth January 28, 2014 Around three years ago, a doctoral student, somewhat by accident, made a small discovery that could one day change the entire energy economy: a unique thermal reaction between two compounds.
