2010 Calendars from CAS & Patex

I came across these excellent 2010 calendars mentioned by Kevin Lindstrom on the SciEng@UBC Blog.

1. Every year the Chemical Abstracts Service of the American Chemical Society publishes a wonderful calendar – the Colors of Chemistry. Starting in 2010 this calendar is now available either as a free download or as an online interactive calendar.

Go to 2010 Colors of Chemistry Calendar and choose your option.

2. Ron Simmer Patent and IP Expert has issued this Patex Bizarre Patents Calendar. Ron’s site of patent and intellectual property links available at the Patex website.
