Diving with shrimp fishes in Moalboal, Philippines.

Running With Shrimp is  a curated repository and commentary on selected topics drawn from a variety of news, technology, health, the environment, and current events. One of my special concerns in recent years has been the growing anti-science movement, including the anti-vaccine and anti-climate change factions and more recently the hoax and conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic which defy all logic.

The focus here, therefore, will be on credible evidence-based studies examining such issues, both to expand our knowledge of recent research and to combat the spread of misinformation and disinformation regarding the major events and crises of our time.

Since most of the posts will originate from third party sites, I cannot be responsible for their content, although I will provide commentary on elements that I think are not supported by credible evidence or that I disagree with.

I welcome comments on my posts or more generally via the Contact Us form on this site and I aim to respond to all questions or comments within 24 hours wherever possible.

For now, I’ll leave you with this clip on All Things Shrimp from the movie, Forrest Gump.
