  • Thorough approach
  • A bit too eclectic
Everybody talks about the weather and we all want to know what it’s going to do tomorrow. But nobody actually does anything about it. That’s probably just as well, because if people COULD control the weather, we’d probably have even more problems than we do. With a beautifully and intuitively laid out Webpage, MetEd provides visitors with a warm welcome. Aimed at educating visitors about weather forecasting and the El Nino phenomenon, the site is educational at the same time. Topics covered at the site range from climate and coastal weather to multimedia databases, downloadable information, and several distance learning classes. An interesting way to learn more about meteorology.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
