Temple Grandin on humane livestock handling and more of this week’s science events

Prttey quiet in town. A good time to get out at the Boston Nature Center, Arnold Arboretum or the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.  More indoor activity below.


 Last week we checked in on Science by the Pint. This week catch another bar room-based lecture series, this one from the NerdNite group. We can’t say Sh** here and we guess they didn’t’ want to so they’re advertising“Sh*t {Nerds} Say: Just What the Hell is a Snowclone Anyway?” As they say, be there and be square. At Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge.


 Temple Grandin is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. She was also the subject of a 2010 film. She’s noted for two things – her work on humane livestock handling practices and her autism. Worth the drive to Worcester.

 Coming up

 Harvard launches its popular Science and Cooking series on September 4. It’s in a building that’s not easy to find, so click on the campus map for Jefferson 250, behind the Science Center off Oxford St. Speakers include two food writers: Dave Arnold of Food Arts and Harold McGee of The New York Times. Free but popular. Get there early.
