scientific method

The scientific method is certainly relevant to scientists conducting scientific research. Right? But how about you? Is the scientific method relevant to you in your day-to-day life? For this discussion, take a look at general news outlets – local or network TV news, local or national newspaper, news magazine (like “Time” or “Newsweek”) – and find an example of a development based on the scientific method that is relevant to your life. If you can identify an example for your personal or professional day-to-day life, that is okay as well. Post your personal response to this discussion by clicking on “start a new thread”. In your personal response, summarize the development, how the scientific method was involved, and how you think the development is relevant to your life or to human life in general.
