Rather unexpectedly operations here at TheScientificParent.org ground to a halt on Monday. Discussions I’d been having with subject matter experts on a variety of topics ended without warning. On Tuesday I was trying to find a subject matter expert to address a topic, only to not hear back from anyone. After hours responses trickled in […]
On the morning of November 9, 2016 we struggled with what to say on the site about the election results. Several articles were written with the editorial staff and were scrapped.
