www.scitechdaily.com (SciTech Daily Review)
This site is another excellent source of science news. The main page
appears very busy and can be confusing. The page is split into three
main sections: Features/Background, Books/Media, and Analysis/Opinions.
But once you get the hang of reading the news summaries and finding the links
to the full articles, you will find well written, easy to read accounts.
The site also has links to dozens of other sources of breaking science news
and to the websites of Science/Technology publications.
This site lives up to the quality we have come to expect from National Geographic.
The site provides daily news articles about the latest happenings in the
world of science. The news stories are easy to read and often will
include links to audio and video clips. In addition to the feature
stories there are articles categorized into subheadings like Exploration,
People, and the Environment.

The AMCA’s mission is to provide leadership, information and education leading
to the enhancement of health and quality of life through the suppression
of mosquito and other vector transmitted diseases and the reduction of annoyance
levels caused by mosquitoes and other vectors and pests of public health
importance. There are sections on the mosquito life cycle, mosquito
control, and the diseases that the little varmints are responsible for.
There are also numerous links to other mosquito related web sites.
Molecular Expressions has a web site that explores the world of optics and
microscopy. One section of their web site called Science, Optics &
You, Interactive Java Tutorials, The Power of 10, takes a view of the Milky
Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space
towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall
oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual
size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the
cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of
electrons and protons. Fascinating web site.
