I have pretty much retired this blog and have switched to posting shorter notes to Facebook and Twitter.
Writing a blog was occasionally fun but ultimately not worth the time or effort given the limited number of followers. While this blog had received over 700,000 page views, after working full time on writing journal articles, books, and grant proposals, and conducting experiments, and being editor of a journal, and giving 20 to 50 presentations and interviews a year, I don't have much energy left to write a blog as well.
This site will remain online for historical purposes, but look for my posts on various social media for ongoing updates. And look for my latest book, which I'm working on now, in Spring of 2018.
