There are problems with maggots, food shortages and contraband in state prisons, and the committee that inspects those facilities is blaming a private vendor hired by the prison system.
NOVA scienceNow Is Back!
“NOVA scienceNow” is back with all new shows and a new host. David Pogue, technology reporter for The New York Times, takes over as host for the sixth season of “NOVA scienceNow” airing Wednesday nights at 10pm on WOSU TV. In this new season Pogue takes on a new theme each week that features the latest scientific breakthroughs. In How Smart Can We Get? Pogue finds out how the anatomy of his brain measures up to Albert Einstein’s and in this week’s episode Can Science Stop Crime? our intrepid host tries to outsmart a polygraph. I enjoy David Pogue as the new host, he’s engaging and makes the subject matter understandable and fun for those of us less than enthusiastic about science.
“NOVA scienceNow” airs Wednesday nights at 10pm on WOSU TV with an encore presentation Thursday nights at 10pm on WOSU PLUS.
