Does anyone have recommendations of a couple of websites to keep up to date with new developments, studies, in all fields of science? Not something like journal sites, I know plenty of those, but more casual ones if you will.
Personal ones I frequent would be
That's off the top of my head there now
There are some good science sections of major news sites
The Science Blog forums are a good place. Takes time to work out which bloggers follow the kinds of things you are interested in but I find it is one of a few good mediums for creating a tier of communication between Peer Reviewed Science Journals and the Public.
Ben Goldacre's stuff is good: http://www.badscience.net/
Actually, there's loads of stuff out there, navigating it is the thing.
There's lots of good lectures and talks on youtube too - finding the stuff is the thing.
Youtube comments from Christians attacking scientists is always a laugh.
MIT's TechnologyReview is good... there's also an app called Pulse (on Android anyhow) which is a news aggregator, their science feed is good. oh, and the NakedScientist site is curious if a bit all over the place.
I am a fan of http://www.newscientist.com/ New Scientist.
