WAM! Radical '80s Prom Photos
The Radical '80s Prom was a huge success. We drew over 100 paying customers and raised over $1000 for Women Action and Media, a national organization dedicated to creating gender justice in media.
It was the best damned dance party I've ever been to. DJs Marc Faletti and Amanda Marcotte had everyone on dancing all night. Organizers Emily Douglas, Jean Stevens, and Nancy Goldstein made everything look easy, which is proof of how hard they worked and how good they are.
Thanks to our generous sponsor Babeland for donating prizes for the costume contest. Thanks to the Bowery Poetry Club and their staff for having us. Most of all, thanks to all our guests including those who came from as far away as DC and Boston to party with us at the Bowery Poetry Club.

What can 3D printing do for medicine? The "sky is the limit," says Northwell Health researcher Dr. Todd Goldstein.
- Medical professionals are currently using 3D printers to create prosthetics and patient-specific organ models that doctors can use to prepare for surgery.
- Eventually, scientists hope to print patient-specific organs that can be transplanted safely into the human body.
- Northwell Health, New York State's largest health care provider, is pioneering 3D printing in medicine in three key ways.
It's a "canary in the coalmine," said one climate scientist.
- A team of researchers discovered that permafrost in Northern Canada is melting at unusually fast rates.
- This could causes dangerous and costly erosion, and it's likely speeding up climate change because thawing permafrost releases heat-trapping gasses into the atmosphere.
- This week, Canada's House of Commons declared a national climate emergency.
One of Stephen Hawking's predictions seems to have been borne out in a man-made "black hole".
- Stephen Hawking predicted virtual particles splitting in two from the gravitational pull of black holes.
- Black holes, he also said, would eventually evaporate due to the absorption of negatively charged virtual particles.
- A scientist has built a black hole analogue based on sound instead of light.
Not every part of a satellite burns up in reentry. Considering the growing number of satellites in orbital space, that's a big problem.
- Earth's orbital space is getting more crowded by the day.
- The more satellites and space junk we put into orbit, the greater a risk that there could be a collision.
- Not all materials burn up during reentry; that's why scientists need to stress test satellite parts to ensure that they won't become deadly falling objects.
