Delightful new book assembles stories from the Boundary Waters--plus trivia to boot

Boundary Waters lover Barry Johnson has put together a book of essays about his favorite place, the "BWCA Reader." Several dozen stories from different writers run the gamut from fish tales to honeymoons to canoes gone missing. Barry shares how and why he decided to publish this book, why it's important to him, and more, in this conversation with Ann Possis Sept. 20.

Marc Abrahams on the 23rd First Annual IgNobels, awards for wacky/fun research that makes you think

Buck chatted and laughed with Marc Abrahams of Improbable Research, which publishes a magazine and awards the IgNobel Prizes for research that "makes people laugh, and then think." Learn about the origin of karaoke (it's not what you might think), very important cow research, and...what the heck is a Blonsky device? (see drawing at left)
