After passage by both the House and the Senate, President Trump has signed into law a bill to temporarily reopen the federal government until 15 February. First, I am relieved to know this action means federal employees, including federal scientists, will receive their first paychecks in more than 30 days, and that they will receive the back pay they are owed. Unfortunately, the havoc this unprecedented shutdown has wreaked on their lives will not be so easily erased. On a broader level, I’m also relieved that our nation’s federal scientists, and the contractors they work with, will be able to return to their important work. We jeopardize public health and safety, not to mention national security, when those dedicated individuals aren’t allowed to do their jobs. More than that the shutdown’s impact stretches even further when the researchers, labs and others outside of the federal government who regularly collaborate with our federal scientists or who rely on data from federal...

The 53rd annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will take place in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, September 4 to 7, 2019. AESE meetings are a wonderful way to learn about earth science editing, publishing and communication. Our meetings, generally small in size, consist of two days of technical sessions and a one-day field trip, and provide an unparalleled opportunity to network with other editors, publishers, educators and others working in the earth sciences.    Nicknamed ‘The Queen City’, Regina is the capital of the province of Saskatchewan, one of the three ‘Prairie Provinces’ in Canada. Settled in 1882, Regina was originally called ‘Wascana’, a Cree term meaning ‘Pile of Bones’. Located roughly in the centre of the North American continent, Regina is like an oasis of trees, people and buildings in the heart of the Canadian prairies. With a population of over 230,000, it is the second-largest city in Saskatchewan, and a cultural and entertainment...
