The Women in Astronomy Blog (http://womeninastronomy.blogspot.com/)

Wednesday. This week's posts are:

"Who are We?" by Jessica Kirkpatrick, who asks for input on what readers
think are the interesting/important topics to bring up on the blog
and "Dual-Career Academic Couples," by Hannah Jang-Condell, who summarizes a
recent report by the Clayman Institute for Gender Research entitled
"Dual-Career Academic Couples: What Universities Need to Know"
(Schiebinger, Hernderson, & Gilmartin)

2. Ntampaka and Sampath selected as 2012 Blewett Fellows
From: WIPHYS, August 16, 2012

The Blewett Fellowship was established from a generous bequest from M.
Hildred Blewett, an accelerator physicist who died in 2004. Hildred
Blewett was passionate about physics and wanted to help women overcome
obstacles by establishing the fellowship. Read about the 2012
