Having enjoyed Faz’s discussion on the current situations of scientific publishing arms everywhere I think it is important to also restore a little faith in the community regarding Peer Review processes that do in fact work.
I’m changing jobs! I’m excited to say that I’m heading back to the medical industry but this time with a new focus. Instead of pharmaceutical research I’m returning to my base passion - genomics! Hooray! Everyone have a drink with me tonight.
But I thought this was worth sharing. It’s a Youtube series called “If the Emperor had a text to speech device” and it’s pretty great. For all you WH 40k fans, I’d recommend giving it a go if you’re in the mood for some silly lore and funny animations.
Maybe you have a long commute, spending vast amounts of time in a car, train or bicycle as you travel your ways around the world. If you’re like me, you have a lot of books and other sources that preoccupy your reading time but there’s just this void that you want to fill.
Every work place, group or organization has them. Some are more vocal than others, while some are just odd in interpreting and disseminating their non-traditional opinion. Most of the time this isn’t a problem since they don’t generally force their viewpoints on others... until they do.
Today, a group of researchers from New York have found that the spherical sulfur oxidizing bacteria - Thivulum majus group up together and form crystals to swim.

Reporters at Bloomberg have stated that Elon Musk was considering Texas to be the site for the first Hyperloop model.
Ants are fascinating creatures. Statistically speaking they are the most successful species on the planet with an array of interesting facts that could astound a plebeian or veteran researcher.

The past few weeks have been insane. Not just for me but for several people. If only it was the holiday blitz that normally pervades our routines and reminds us all of its power by clenching its gravitational clutches.
What does it look like to you? Interplanetary laser leaving a scorch mark on the surface of a planet? Please discuss.
I don't know about y'all, but when I do work I like some background noise on. Usually I'll pipe in a show on NetFlix while I write or research away. Occasionally looking up and at the TV.
This week has been grueling. A few 16 hour work days to finish some seemingly impossible projects were miraculously completed. Last night I celebrated and I'm in a great, goofy mood.
