Bits and Pieces - Science Edition

And, speaking of endangered and exotic species, E. J. Graff presents the statistics of women's participation in the big-time literary magazines.

There is also a rather wonderful article in the 24 February Science magazine about how atmospheric energy is dissipated through the drag on falling raindrops, but I have several additional points I want to make on that, so they will come another day.
