Perhaps you’ve been meaning to read about the latest advances in the field of spectroscopy, but you’ve been dragging your feet. Well, there’s no time like the present, so you might as well take a look at this site NOW. SpectroscopyNOW.com is an excellent site, covering the entire spectrum of spectroscopy. From Atomic to X-ray, information is organized according to technique and divided into four categories: News, Education, Links, and the site’s own Ezine. The information presented on this site is timely and useful for ardent spectroscopists, as well as anyone looking to brush-up on their NMR or Raman (no, not what you ate while in college). In addition to the technique-specific information, there are also general resources, including job postings, podcasts, and a conference schedule. Some of the material on the site requires you to log in, but registration is free and painless.

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?
