Synchronized Chaos Magazine – July 2011: Science, Nature, Spontaneity

Synchronized Chaos is serving you up a summer “cocktail” for July: equal parts science and nature with a splash of spontaneity.

Tapati McDaniels takes you inside the 4th annual conference on pharmacogenomics and consumer genetic testing, held on May 26, 2011, at the South San Francisco Conference Center.

Leena Prasad kicks off Whose Brain Is It, a brand new monthly neuroscience column.

Daniella Engen finds unique characteristics of wildlife through a lens and gives new boldness to otherwise unassuming moments. Sara Diamond explains the meaning of “dream logic” in her series of whimsical photographs.

Other artists featured in this issue are Ari Bernabei and Trius Fernsler. Bernabei’s paintings are joyful in the small details and Fernsler’s work is colorful and rhythmic.

Also rhythmic is the poetry by Christopher Bernard. Bernard shares a few of his free-spirited and energetic poems based on bikes.

Last but not least for poetry, Carolyn Havenhill’s work reflects upon finding peace and faith during hardships and appreciating the present.

There are 3 book reviews this month:

You also have an exciting opportunity to read the first suspenseful chapter from A. Paul Cartier’s novel, Tunnel Road. Also check out the electric and shocking (puns intended) flash fiction by Carter Maddox.

Thanks very much for reading this month’s issue of Synchronized Chaos Magazine. Cheers!
