By Dr. SkySkull

skyskull “Dr. SkySkull” selects several notable posts each week from a miscellany of ResearchBlogging.org categories. He blogs at Skulls in the Stars.

  • Dealing With “Digital Distractions” in the Classroom. I’ve certainly wondered what the best approach is to students who are using laptops in the classroom!  Krystal at Anthropology in Practice asks whether a blanket ban on them is the right approach.
  • A blast from a black hole’s past. The black holes at the center of many galaxies are “active”, in that they give off tremendous amounts of energy; our galaxy’s black hole does not.  Has it always been that way?  Sarah at SarahAskew discusses observations of an “echo” that suggests that it has not!
  • Peer-to-peer data storage. Finally, David at Sciencetext talks about the ups and downs of using peer-to-peer communications as a system to store and protect data!

Check back next week for more “miscellaneous” selections!
