As a woman in science, I consider myself extraordinarily blessed by my upbringing. Throughout my childhood and early education, I never perceived any indication that women were less capable of science, that women did not have a place in science, or even that women were a minority in the field of science. In elementary school,…

The title of Train’s newest album, a girl a bottle a boat, reflects the band’s excessive effort to appeal to pop trends, but hardly matches the album’s actual emotions in the way audiences may expect. Train attempts lighthearted, carpe diem anthems reflective of relaxing and summer yacht parties, but the actual product is weighed down…
