Dave Kopel on Superfund on National Review Online: "By 1977, a large volume of foul odors had begun to emerge from the Love Canal waste site, to the consternation of neighbors. A local woman named Lois Gibbs made herself into a nationally recognized environmental activist by leading a campaign of terrified citizens. Years later, the New York Times ran an adoring profile of Gibbs and her fight for children's safety; the story was accompanied by a photograph of the pregnant Mrs. Gibbs smoking a cigarette. As it turned out, Mrs. Gibbs wasn't very good at judging health risks."

Zygote Games' new Bone Wars:
"Most of the wild events in BONE WARS are based on things which actually happened. Edward Drinker Cope really did mount a mosasaur's head on the wrong end of the skeleton, and then tried to buy up and destroy all the copies of the journal describing it. O. C. Marsh really did use his personal fortune to hire away all the best fossil collectors from rivals. And the indestructible Charles Sternberg had to outrun flash floods in western canyons. For a time the personal feud between Cope and Marsh involved everyone from the U.S. Geological Survey to the editors of the New York Herald."

Seyed Alavi-Public Art and Installation:
"This project consists of an aerial view of the Sacramento River that is woven into a carpet for the floor of a pedestrian bridge connecting the terminal to the parking garage. This image represents approximately 50 miles of the Sacramento River starting just outside of Colusa, California and ending about 6 miles south of Chico. "
