At the beginning of Twim #28 Michael articulated his love for math and around minute 12 his desire for "ground truthing" the number of times one touches their face. In response I offer the attached article from a colleague at UCB.

I really admired the candid and humble discussion at the end of the podcast about proper attribution of ideas.

With warm regards (-65 C in Berkeley),

I don’t know how I dare to email you as you must be really busy but here goes.

My name is Carol and at 51 have just embarked on a teaching course, my brain cells, I possess a few, are overloaded.

My tutor wants me to use innovative (new) technology in my lesson and write a 4,000 word assignment plus portfolio on the use of such technologies.

In the real world, when I teach, often even basic computers or powered points are in short supply; anything fancier than that is NEVER available but as this is for an assignment we must pretend that we do have it.

I teach food safety and thought that a good way of introducing some tech would be to have a microscope in class but really he is talking does vigrx really work of interaction, podcasts, phone apps, live chat and possibly video clips.

I don’t need anything too techy as this is not biology A level, just food hygiene, therefore something to do with salmonella would be fantastic.

Are you aware of any links, materials, videos on this subject or any ideas on how I could use a microscope that would immediately be able to send what it sees to a computer?

Think of this as your charity work, helping someone less fortunate than yourself (me)

Many thanks and apologies for my forwardness

Hello,

I'm an undergraduate student and am currently working in Montreal on a co-op where we manipulate yeast to create either the best bread strains, booze strains, or biofuel strains. Because of this, I'm always reading up on new articles about biofuel. I was wondering if you had heard about this: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/335/6066/308.short
and what your opinions might be.

Thanks for making the hours fly by on the train and in the lab.

Best,

Alicia

Dear TWiM Team I came across this New Scientist article on the general disregard for microbial life in conservation and the need for education to counteract negative perceptions of microbial life.

Your comments please.


Peter.
