    1. Sarah, I was unable to successfully embed one of these widgets anywhere on my Posterous blog (post, page, skin). Without digging too deep, I think Posterous strips parameters or blocks elements. I do however regularly embed individual tweets in a blog post � no issues there.

    2. I am sorry to say but I disagree with the writer here. NIH budget cuts are required as a lot of money is squandered in the name of research. Researchers are not the best money managers and the money is spent inappropriately. I agreewith the author about orphan diseases and the loss to that funding will be hit hard but it can still be managed even after the cuts. I think NIH can cut even more. Most of the money is not spent for genuine research and America as a leader in this field is a past. Sure they still win the Nobels etc but what is the country of origin of these researchers. For America to succeed, the most important criteria is that Americans have to be interested in research which they are absolutely not. A large number who accept these NIH grants waste it away in furthering their careers, not necessarily science. They hire cheap labor from foreign countries and work them like dogs, most not even getting a day off in years. There are no exchange of ideas or furthering research. It is like a slave labor camp. In this environment research cannot flourish. In addition, the medical doctors with hardly any research experience receive enormous amounts of money for translational research for which they have little or no experience pushing people with years and years of research experience even down in the dumps.
