    New Scientist is a good one, but you need subscription. More often than not, my science demands is filled by the constant buzzing around me (check where I live :)).

    arXiv for pros

    We have this thread in GN, but I can't be bothered to look for it.

    You can still read the headlines in New scientist, and a certain number of articles. You might want to check Nature too, but that has a paywall too. Google articles which excites you.

    Yes, I am living in London sucking up all the welfare :roll: Nah, just for education here.

    If you go to University ask for an Athens number. You can get into all sorts of paid websites... (that are educationally relevant of course)

    so its look like, I was stuck to read in library, dailygalaxy.com, and nationalgeographic.

    To be honest, I don't know before that science website mostly a paysite.

    ted is a great site with video lectures on a wide range of topics
    http://www.ted.com/
    not strictly science, it stands for technology, entertainment, design

    Watch 'Dr. Michio Kaku' on youtube. He's got some interesting stuff.

    By far, the most respected publication geared toward lay people is Science News. http://www.sciencenews.org/

    If you get the magazine, web access is free and I think most of the articles can be viewed by anyone. There might be some restrictions on the latest issue, not sure.

    There are several physicists on another site I go to and this question came up. SN was considered the best. There wasn't very much love for Scientific American with the comments generally being that they were good maybe 10 years ago but have gone down hill. They do have a new editor now though so we'll see. I still like them.

    Another good source is http://www.physorg.com but the writing goes from excellent to barely mediocre. I would stick to the spotlight stories. There's too much there to follow on a daily basis anyway.

    I tend to check Slashdot most often. Not strictly science, but mostly science & technology.
