About 20% of #genetics papers contain errors because #Excel sometimes converts gene names to dates or random numbers. For example, it will change the name of gene SEPT2 to September 2. That's why it's important to know how to format cells properly.

More media consolidation: Microsoft is buying +LinkedIn for $26 billion. This is a huge move into social media and publishing. Either that or they really like my #Excel courses on +Lynda.com.

Giant tech investor #Naspers just put $60 million into #Udemy. They must have liked my courses! Also, the investment will help grow Udemy's global presence.

Nice #WordPress plugin I just used: called Duplicator made by +Cory Lamle, it let me migrate a site from development to a new production server. I used the free version, and there's also a Pro version. Only glitch: I had to manually create the database and user on the production server. It looked like the plugin would do that for me, but it didn't. Might be an issue specifically with the host.

A side effect of what happens when people don’t have exposure to math or sociology: a dark, curly-haired Italian Ivy League economist was profiled and escorted off an American Airlines flight because the idiot passenger sitting next to him thought the differential equations he was working on were Arabic, which she assumed was sinister. He was allowed to re-board.

Not just a bakery! The baked goods are some of the best you'll find, but Baker's Treat has excellent breakfast and lunch items, too, including vegetarian fare.
