My Other Science Blog: Science Quick Picks

Science Quick Picks is a typical cut-and-paste blog, which I maintain as a sort of bookmarks collection of interesting science news and resources and share with my readers. Science Quick Picks has now around one thousand posts and some of them are quite popular. On the restart of Triple Point I leave here links to some of the most recent and to some of the most popular posts:

Universities Worldwide

Universities Worldwide is the title of one of the most popular posts in my other blog Quick Picks, Quick Site of the Day section. In that post I recommend two of the best Universities directories that I know – Braintrack University Index and Universities Worldwide (that gives the title to the post) and a list of Universities directories on the web, the Best Indices of Colleges and Universities World-Wide. It seems that there are a lot of people from everywhere looking for information about Universities. May be a good suggestion is to recommend also a visit to the World Universities’ Ranking on the Web. Just in case…

By the way, other recent Quick Sites of the Day include: Visionlearning, Einstein Light, Live Science, Physics Flash Animations, Science & Society Picture Library e Snowflakes and Snow Crystals. All of these are outstanding sites which deserve to be visited.

Just to finish, and in case you haven’t noticed, the most recent posts of Quick Picks now appear in this blog, on the right column.


After a long-lasting pause I am restarting now the regular updates of Triple Point. In fact, all my time dedicated to blogs has been taken by Quick Picks. In case you haven’t been following this blog, here are some of the most interesting posts in

The lists of blogs on the left column have been updated. I’ve removed some Chemistry blogs that haven’t been updated for a long time and I’ve added to Other Blogs some new blogs. Another section that will start now is Links of the Month, in which I will highlight the most interesting sites from all that have been reviewed in Ponto Triplo/Triple Point.
Finally, as you can check on the left, I’ve created a new blog for mainly (but not only) Chemistry-related news, in a “quick links” format called… Quick Picks. I hope you enjoy it.
