Dear Colleagues,
 Nature and Science both have articles in this week's
editions devoted to the President's FY2011 budget request
for the sciences. 

Nature's editorial is titled "Stand and deliver" and
starts with "Science has done well in the proposed US budget. 
Researchers need to justify the funding boost."

The full article can be found online at:
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v463/n7281/full/463587b.html


Science's "News of the Week" article is similarly titled
"U.S. Budget: Science Spared From Domestic Spending Freeze-for Now"

That article can be found online at:
http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/327/5966/628


Both publications stress that these requests face considerable 
pressure and that researchers need to support, if not outright 
justify, this level of funding.

The AIP provides guidance for meeting with a member of Congress 
(either in Washington, or in their local office during recesses)
