Florida is not only God’s waiting room; sometimes it’s also Hell’s. Invasive species–including Burmese pythons, Madagascan hissing cockroaches, walking catfish, stucco-eating giant snails–are endangering native species and disrupting the delicate ecosystems. And then there’s herpes infected wildlife, and I don’t mean the humans cataloged on the Twitter feeds, Florida Man and Florida Woman.

A couple of years ago Mrs. Spocko and I were doing some fine dining in the lovely North Beach section of San Francisco. This was a white tablecloth, soft-lighting restaurant so we expected something a bit better than our local taqueria. We both ordered green salads. When they arrived I started trying to break the land speed record for fastest fork to mouth. Mrs. Spocko is much more dignified. She noticed that there were several slimy black pieces of lettuce clinging to the green pieces. I looked down to my half finished salad and noticed the same.
We called over the waiter, who felt the need to stand up for the salad’s wholesomeness. He said, and I quote, “It comes in a bag.”

The CDC estimates that 1.1 million people in the US are HIV+ and 20% of those are unaware of their status. Early detection and early treatment lowers the rate of transmission. Even though National HIV Testing Day has passed, if you are sexually active, get tested every three months, or when you end a relationship – before beginning another. Ask your partner their status and suggest getting tested together. Play safe and stay safe!

Would you sacrifice your child’s health or life for the greater good? That is the question that arises in tonight’s film The Greater Good, directed, produced, and written by tonight’s guests Leslie Manookian and Kendall Nelson. The Greater Good takes a step back from the recent divisiveness discussing the issue’s complexity and nuances, bringing the bigger picture into focus through the stories of three families affected by vaccinations, with experts on both sides and in the middle of the vaccination debate.

We know plastic additive Bisphenol A is bad for humans, although we’re still learning more about its effects on humans. But why is the U.S. spending tax dollars on studying Chinese workers’ exposures?
