Sadness, Peace and Joy

When I began to blog almost 5 years ago, I wanted to share stories of my graduate school experience with other women scientists in the hopes that we could form a virtual support network for each other. Back then it took me weeks to find even one other woman doing the same thing with a…

Blogger guilt

Folks, I don’t know what to tell you. It’s like I don’t even remember how to blog anymore. I think I’ve posted 2 real posts in 2 months. I have ideas stacked up in my head for posts – a post from FIE 2009, a post from SWE including the cool “Father Knows Best” episode…

Survey of women geoscientists

Over the past several years, the geoscience blogosphere has blossomed so much that this fall, the Geological Society of America (GSA) will be convening a Pardee Keynote Symposium called “Google…

Can you spare 50 minutes to help out a graduate student desperate for research participants? If so, please read below: Dear all, Within the context of my PhD project at Philips Research and Eindhoven University of Technology, I am developing a questionnaire that will help me to look at the relation between multimedia and feelings…
