Thanks for introducing me to that website. Brilliant, but I'm so sceptical of all websites that I kept waiting for some creationist punchline.

If you're looking for Science news then http://www.physorg.com/ is a good place to go as well.

The only problem with science news is that very often all these new outlets do is publish the publicity release that the institution put together, so a great deal of stuff on those pages has little to no critical evaluation as of yet.

What I like to do is keep an eye on Discover Blogs and Science Blogs, because if there is something interesting in these stories one of the many scientists there will write about it with a critical and informed perspective which many of the news agencies like Science Daily through no fault of their own just can't do.
