Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

Today on ResearchBlogging I learnt that over 1 in 5 Koreans are called Kim, and that this has been the case for more than a millennium. On Sciencebyte, Vivek describes the statistical study that produced this fascinating factlet.

As a bit of a sports fanatic, I’m always interested in learning more about how exercise affects our minds and bodies. I really enjoyed Elizabeth Preston’s discussion on Inkfish about a study into the effects of different kinds of exercise on the immune system.

On Microfluidic Future, Hector gives us a primer on his blogging topic, microfluidics. I admit I was clueless, now I’m ignorant no more. Nice work, and I look forward to reading more.

Thanks for the great posts, and I’ll be back next week with more picks.
