I can’t believe the regular season’s almost over! I managed to make it to a game last week, which was awesome, especially because the friend who invited me – an Oilers fan – was convinced the Canucks were going to … Continue reading
Let’s face it, the tired old standards of education, employment history, and achievements in each role really just aren’t that helpful during the hiring process. Sure, they’re necessary data points, but they’re by no means sufficient. You and your team … Continue reading
I saw the most amazing TED talk the other day, about Nikola Tesla. Now, we all know that Tesla was a fascinating, awesome dude (especially as played by David Bowie IMHO), but in the case of this video it was the … Continue reading
I still haven’t quite got back into the regular BRC update habit, but rest assured I have systems in place to make sure I don’t miss any of your awesome comments or posts! Date listed is the date of archiving, … Continue reading
I know size isn’t everything, but this is still very clever (pencil for scale) Bravo, Canadian Cancer Society!
I don’t usually read many non-fiction books, but I happened to read three in a row over the last few months. Funny how that happens… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The first was Glass Castle: a Memoir, by Jeannette Walls. I actually bought this book … Continue reading
There are just two days of regular season hockey left, and you know what that means – PLAYOFF POOL! If you’re already in this year’s regular season pool, you should have already received an email from the CBC; if not … Continue reading
Mr E Man and I got to talking last night about bands and artists we really wish we could have seen in concert. After I started my list with the Beatles, we decided that this could go on all night … Continue reading
“OK folks, I’ve been DJ Treebeard and it has been my pleasure to man the decks at the 3,457th annual Ent Ball! Time for one last song – everyone on the dance floor, line up, you all know this one!” … Continue reading
I recently helped one of our scientists put together an application for an industry-partnered bioinformatics grant. I understand the company in question to be more or less universally recognised as the leader in its field and therefore the obvious partner … Continue reading
It was my Dad’s birthday a couple of weeks ago, and after some thought and some time on the Amazon website I decided to buy him the History of the World in 100 Objects book; I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the radio … Continue reading
About ten years ago, a Dutch friend told me one of the most epic “lost in translation” stories I’ve ever heard. I re-told the story many times over the next couple of years, but hadn’t thought about it for a … Continue reading
I hope all my Canadian readers are having an awesome long weekend! (And that everyone else had an awesome normal weekend!) Ours has involved spending time with various friends on patios, roller coasters, log flumes, beaches, ocean swims, picnics in … Continue reading
Those of you who’ve read some of my recent posts, or who follow me on Twitter, might have noticed that many of the photos I post are now circular. No-one? Really? Anyway… this is because for the last few months … Continue reading
The increasing frequency with which I hear scientists misuse the word “agnostic” is starting to annoy me. It’s usually used to mean “I don’t have a strong preference”: for example, “I’m agnostic as to protocol – I could go either … Continue reading
It was her toenails I noticed first, as I bent over to push my bag under my chair in a restaurant a few days ago; they were painted the same colour as mine, a funky metallic turquoise. “Ooh, nice sandals”, … Continue reading
It’s a well-known fact that watching certain films and TV shows with a scientist is no fun at all – in fact, it’s almost as bad as trying to watch ER with three medical student flatmates, as I did every … Continue reading
(Title translation provided by Google Translate, so please don’t moan at me! It’s not my fault I didn’t have a Classical education ;-p) I heard a nice little riddle while catching up on NPR’s Sunday Puzzle podcast this morning, and … Continue reading
I just sent out a Rando that may be of interest to some of you: Yup, it’s that time of year again, and Twitter is abuzz with talk of a new #VWXPool! We’re using the same pool as last time, … Continue reading
While helping Mr E Man book the final leg of our upcoming vacation yesterday, I realised that it’s been almost a whole year since we went to Puerto Rico and I still haven’t blogged about it. BAD blogger! We flew … Continue reading
