Heya! I'm the one who posted that dog breeder vs aco post- and I responded to them and sent out quite a few corrections about what they had posted (As well as added more links!) I noticed a few people saying the links were broken, but upon looking- all were intact? so I dunno what people are speaking about on that but all my references and such should be there! :)

Newsemia
Thanks for letting me know! Readers, here’s the link to that. I think I’m going to refrain from commenting or reblogging another thing on the...

about that fake dog shelter story,, surely if anyone who'd offered to walk a dog (for a charge or not) suddenly called the shelter and said "yeah I'm not bringing it back" … they might get into at least a little bit of trouble ?? like im p sure thats Illegal

Newsemia
Yeah you always need to at least fill out a form! And usually pay a fee. And sometimes the shelter needs to keep animals for...

pardon my asking but how did you end up working on the newsweek science team and then transitioning to vox? (i'm looking to go into science journalism so i'm curious, but if you don't want to answer that's cool!)

Sorry if this is not the right place to ask, but I'm dabbling in zombie fiction and was wondering, what happens to the brains of meat animals after slaughter? Google brings up some really vague or down right A.R. centered answers. Love your blog and your work by the way! Always fascinating stuff.

Newsemia
Thanks for the kind words!  That’s a good question too! Here’s a video on what happens to non-meat parts of cattle, but no mention of the...

Hello! I was wondering if you happen to have some tips for someone wanting to start a science communication blog (talking about projects and interesting tidbits of the area for example)? Like which site do you think is better for a majorly written blog or other stuff you think would be useful to know more indicated for a hobby? (Sorry if you have in your FAQ, I'm on mobile…).Thank you for your time!

Hi! It depends on what your goals are. Obviously I like Tumblr: it’s versatile in that you can write long or short posts with text...

Hello, I have a question; so I live in MA and I salvage roadkill and stuff I find in the woods and I thought it was all good, but yesterday someone told me that all of that's illegal…? And now I'm kinda scared, because I looked up all of those laws before hand and was pretty certain I was following everything correctly but now I'm just not sure. Did I screw up??

Newsemia
As in many things, it’s neither legal nor illegal, but it’s regulated. A lot of people will just tell you stuff is illegal when they...

So this is a bit derivative, but I'm genuinely curious. 1. How do you get in contact to write pieces for big places like NatGeo or Newsweek? and 2. How do they compensate for just one article? Thanks!

Hi Anon! First for any readers, if you think I shouldn’t post pay rates, you might be right since employers will dislike me for doing...

I'm confident you won't care, but I'm unfollowing you for posting/normalizing that it's okay for private individuals to buy human remains. It's fucked up and they're almost always sourced unethically (in the past from poor people who couldn't afford to be buried, increasingly from outright graverobbery). It's not illegal, but it's fucked up. Let people die in peace, and not be turned into decor.

Newsemia
Sure, that’s understandable.Personally, I think if it’s truly fucked up, it’s important for people to know that it’s happening, wouldn’t you say? Talking about a...

Hi! I'm a journalist as well and, coincidentally enough,I just finished a trainee programme on science/health journalism at a newspaper (here in Brazil, where I'm from). I saw that you have a BA in Journalism as well as the master's. Do you feel like doing the MS made you improve in becoming a science journalist? I have a BA in J as well and sometimes I feel like I lack the deeper kind of knowledge you may get from majoring in bio, chem or physics, for example, bc journalism was rly easy!

Newsemia
I think the MS helped my skills, but the education wasn’t worth the $65k in debt. The education wasn’t really my intention anyway, especially as...
