1. Formula versus Breast Feeding
The Reality Check explores this unnecessarily controversial topic. The show notes are extensive, and worth a look. The bottomline is that difference between breast milk and formula is usually overstated by its proponents, and exacts a heavy emotional toll from mothers who have trouble breast-feeding
2. Sandy, Issac and the Red Cross
ProPublica and NPR presents a damning expose'.

3. Scilab and Textbook Companion Project (H/T Michael Croucher)
Prof. Kannan Moudgalya, a former teacher or mine at IIT Bombay, and his team ported code from a gazillion engineering textbooks to Scilab. Impressive feat of endurance!
