    Excerpt from the article by Stephen Hesse:

    This reality — that young people must challenge the status quo and seek new solutions to problems created by previous generations — struck me again this month when I took part in a class on science and journalism at the United Nations University in Tokyo.

    Dr. Brendan Barrett of the U.N. University invited me to talk with his graduate students about the professional dynamics that shape the way scientists and journalists interact, and by the end of class I had probably learned as much or more than the class members.
