Brief notes. I'm still working on the notes from last week, but I've been sick all week so running behind. What YOU can all do for now is to take the original emerging technologies search strategy and tinker with it. It wasn't designed by a librarian, so we need to reach a consensus about what works and what doesn't for achieving the goals of the search. Questions that have arisen include: MESH terms or not? If MESH terms, do they need to be limited or focused? TIAB or TI (we are leaning toward TI only for emerging tech part of the searches, and TIAB for our special topics). See what you think. Take the original search, put it in, and then play with it to make it better. :) Enter your strategies, questions, ideas in the Google Doc. THANKS!

I'm still supposed to be setting up assigned tasks, and not making much headway with it. :(

I bought it! And the other one, of the TARDIS skating along a Moebius strip. :)

And folk are complaining about this, but me, I'm excited about connecting corporate and patients together to improve healthcare 
We're excited to announce a new Parkinson's Community collaboration with Genentech! The goal of this initiative will be to identify new drug targets and new therapies by analyzing whole genome sequence data from more than 3,000 individuals in the 23andMe Parkinson's Community. You can read more here:
Mountain View, Calif. – January 6, 2015 – 23andMe, Inc., the leading personal genetics company, today announced an agreement with Genentech, a member of the Roche Group (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY), to generate whole genome sequencing data for approximately 3000 people in 23andMe's Parkinson's ...

Rosefire Rising :) For real. 
Fibrils Flower on The Sun
When does The Sun look like a flower?
In a specific color of red light emitted by hydrogen, as featured here, some regions of the solar chromosphere may resemble a rose. The color-inverted image was taken in October 2014 and shows active solar region 2177. The petals dominating the frame are actually magnetically confined tubes of hot plasma called fibrils, some of which extend longer than the diameter of the Earth.

In the central region many of these fibrils are seen end-on, while the surrounding regions are typically populated with curved fibrils. When seen over the Sun's edge, these huge plasma tubes are called spicules, and when they occur in passive regions they are termed mottles. Sunspot region 2177 survived for several more days before the complex and tumultuous magnetic field poking through the Sun's surface evolved yet again.

MEETING 150116: The Google Hangout crashed towards the end and we LOST all the notes and chat! Grrrr. Joanne was taking notes outside, and will get those to us later. Briefly, we looked at rough draft search strategies from two of the teams, which was very instructive. We also looked at the base "validated" search strategy from the other article, and found several places where they could have benefited from a librarian and where tweaking the search strategy they used results in more results that are on topic. So, the focus for this coming week is to have several of us play with that base search strategy, tweak it, test it, revise it, and share our notes in a Google doc, to try to make it more effective. I'll be posting something separately on that. More later!

Everything you need to worry about, in barely 2 minutes. Worth it! (There is a sing-a-long karaoke version available elsewhere.)

If people missed this very interesting presentation on what the FDA is doing with social media regulation, it's worth watching. 
The FDA is relaxing a bit as legislative deadlines near for issuing guidance. In the social media arena, the FDA has drafted a relatively straightforward formula for compliance with publication of short-form communication (e.g. on Twitter, or Google Ads). What does this all mean to those it affects? 

Join me on Thursday, July 22 as I talk with healthcare lawyer and consultant +David Harlow to learn what these changes mean to social communication of the future.

David is a healthcare attorney and the founder of Healthcare Social Media Review, a bi-weekly blog carnival highlighting health care social media use, best practices, guides, resources, case studies, experiences, new techniques and technologies and new social media communities and tools.
