Science and the Media: The challenge of reporting science responsibly
Here are some story ideas for the upcoming Holiday season:
The 2014 Balles Prize in Critical Thinking, an award for excellence in the promotion of science and reason, was given this year to the creators, producers, and writers of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and to Dr. Joe Schwarcz for his book Is That a Fact? The Balles Prize is given annually by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI), publisher of the magazine Skeptical Inquirer.
Dr. Joe sits down with Bev Thomson on Canada AM and chats about his new book, "Monkeys, Myths, and Molecules."

As part of "Science Rendez-vous," celebrated across the country on Saturday May 9, we will be presenting the "Science of Magic" and "Fun with Chemistry" at the Otto Maass Chemistry Building.
Joe Schwarcz’s new book, “Monkeys, Myths and Molecules” is to be launched at the McGill University bookstore on May 12 at 5:30. Everyone is invited to hear some fun stories and even experience a little magic!
