I haven’t had a whole lot of time for writing lately, but I have done some reading during bits and pieces of spare time. So instead of writing something original, I present the first ever installment of Dr. O’s Link Fest! *explosion of streamers and confetti*
• Tara C. Smith of Aetiology put together a nice four-part series on Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome as a sequelae of infection with Shiga toxin producing strains of E. coli.
• Amy Chang presents her vision for the future of higher education in ASM’s Microbe Magazine. Realistic or pie-in-the-sky? I think maybe a little of both.
• Dr. Becca gets advice on what to do before starting her new job as an assistant professor (I’m bookmarking this post for when I get to sign the dotted line.)
• Dr. Isis wonders where the “Dr. and Mrs” option is on the American Heart Association website.
• ScientistMother explains why she chose a midwife. I’ll probably do the same when I re-spawn, and not just for the kiddie pool.
And huge congratulations for two regular readers/commenters:
• GMP had a [big] baby boy this past week – congratulations!______________________________________________ Like what you’re reading? Click the banner to vote for my blog!
