One of the things that faculty get to do is go to lots and lots and lots of meetings. Today I’m at a 6-hour retreat focused on distance learning, PubMed, and data repositories. (I know, you’re all seething with jealousy). I hope to have another post up later this afternoon if I can get to it; in the meanwhile, here are a few notable posts from elsewhere:
Revere at Effect Measure has an overview of H5N1 over the last 6 months, and discusses why SARS and West Nile aren’t “false alarms.”
Coturnix brings you a potpourri of science news. He also has a DonorsChoose update–check out how much has been raised, and by whom. Meanwhile, I’d really like to get 15 donations by Saturday, the end of the contest–I have 9 currently. Again, if you have an extra $10 or $20 to kick in and you’ve not yet donated to one of the blogger challenges here at Scienceblogs, my challenge is here.
Orac brings you even more shadiness by the Geiers, the father-son pair who’ve been at the heart of the thimerosal-vaccine “controversy” here in the US.
