"There is no human editor behind e! Science News; it is powered by the Eureka! news engine, a fully automated artificial intelligence.

Its sole purpose is to ensure that you have access to the very latest and popular science breakthroughs. To achieve this, it constantly surfs the web to gather, regroup, categorize, tag and rank science news from all major science news sources."

"e! Science News was built and is maintained by Michael Imbeault, PhD student in Retrovirology & Bioinformatics. "

Choose, if you like, from categories:  Astronomy & Space; Biology & Nature; Environment & Climate; Health & Medicine; Economics & Math; Paleontology & Archeology; Physics & Chemistry; Psychology & Sociology.  The archives seem to go back to May, 2009 at least.  I ran a search on H1N1.

Applied Math and Science Education Repository — AMSER

The Applied Math and Science Education Repository is aimed at providing web resources for community colleges, technical schools, and the general public.  The link takes you to the science — and technology — resources.

From their home page: "AMSER is a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use."

"AMSER is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library, and is being created by a team of project partners led by Internet Scout."
