Coccolithophores are single celled eukaryotic phytoplankton that synthesize intricate exoskeletons from crystals of calcium carbonate.  The functions of these coccoliths are unknown, and may include buoyancy, osmotic regulation, protection from UV light, predation, or mechanical shock.  When nutrient and light conditions are optimal, coccolithophores can form massive plankton blooms that are visible from space.  When large numbers of these organisms accumulate on the ocean floor they can form deposits of chalk, such as the White Cliffs of Dover.

Emily Graslie is coming to my school and I’m really excited!

Gettysburg College, I’m coming for you! 
Thursday’s talk 9/11“The Importance of Science Role Models in the Media” 
Too often times the term “scientist” inspires the stale image of lab goggles and a white coat, but who is responsible for transforming this stereotype—the media or the scientists themselves? Is a harmless stereotype all that bad?
The visibility of scientists and their research in the media, from television and movies, to web series, to traditional news outlets, can have a lasting impact on the general public. Whether these are practicing scientists or fictional characters, they undoubtedly influence the way we not only view these fields of research, but also in how we perceive the natural world and our roles within it: if we don’t identify with scientists or their character portrayals, does that influence our level of involvement when it comes to making decisions that are informed by scientific research? “-
 Friday’s talk 9/12"Communicating Science through Museums and YouTube”
YouTube sees more than 1 billion unique visitors to its website every month. It’s impossible to ignore a significant percentage of the world’s population congregating around an aggregate of online videos, but are people watching more than just music and cat videos? 
The Brain Scoop is an educational YouTube channel filmed out of e Field Museum in Chicago that aims to bring its global audience behind the closed doors of the museum’s collection. The Field houses more than 25 million specimens and artifacts within its stores, but these are only a fraction of the natural world’s treasures. e stories of researchers and their work exceed the capacity of any general on-site attendee. Join Emily Graslie as she discusses how the Museum uses new digital media to expand the outreach and impact of its scientist’s ongoing research.

Black Cinderella with an Asian Prince… 


I love this scene.When the Prince says “You’re not like other girls,” she doesn’t answer with “No I’m not.” Instead she’s like “WTF is that supposed to mean?” And I love that, because she doesn’t want to be different from other girls. She doesn’t think that her opinions make her different from or better than other girls. She’s like “Don’t all girls want to be treated like human beings? Did I miss something?”

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.

Vomit-inducing letter to the editor regarding adjunct faculty

women-in-science:

Background: A full-time prof can expect to earn between $80,000 and $120,000/yr plus loads of benefits and after tenure probably some of the best job security out there; they generally teach 4 courses per semester.  Adjunct faculty teach the same number of course and get paid approx. $28,000/yr and get no benefits and no job security.  

The writer of this letter, who admits to never having to have worked as an adjunct and has had full-time with benefits work for the last 30 years, thinks that this is a-ok and these miserable adjuncts should either suck it up and be happy living at or below the poverty line or just quit their jobs because clearly they are a bunch of entitled, special-little-snowflakes who have no business teaching our young people.  Oh, and if you are in a grad program? Probably just quit and go into administration or something.

Remember folks, universities wanting to cut corners by not paying their faculty enough while simultaneously hiring more and more administrators and VPs of something blah blah and paying them ridiculous amounts of money is just fine and dandy and if you think otherwise you are probably one of those entitled losers who can’t even pay their own electric bill. And if you can’t put food on your own table or pay rent, that is 100% your fault for not trying hard enough and is clearly a bad role model for everyone ever.
