Folks, I'm having trouble making updates. IT here mandated new passwords because of Heartbleed (which is fine), but now both the campus email and GMail keep automatically logging me out, meaning that I keep getting dumped out of GPlus. Will pray this gets fixed ASAP, but I'm at a daylong meeting tomorrow. +Judy Kammerer & +Ingrid Tonnison  if you have any insights into clusters for Human Body team, please make suggestions! I'll try to finalize tomorrow evening, assuming I can get into the syste.

Brilliant, love it...this is what I was trying to get at, but couldn't quite there. These categories neatly explain tech and the human body!

We had a PHENOMENAL turnout for yesterday's hangout, and got a lot of work done. Basically, we worked thru the tech spreadsheet looking at all duplicates. Check out the THIRD tab. There are a few for which questions remain, so check out the comments column and see what you think.

Two important parts - we cut a number of technologies from the master list, for two reasons: 1) those that are already assumed to be core compentencies (such as RSS and reference management software), and 2) those that are currently so far beyond the scope of being relevant to medical library practice that it doesn't make sense for us to include them at this point in time (ie. quantum computing and such). 

NEXT STEPS: 
To get the the poster done by next week, we need a few things to happen fast. Each team needs to work on forming clusters of relevant technologies from what's left in their column. We need those clusters by Wednesday, with names describing the cluster, and a definition of terms/scope for each cluster. I recommended as an example of this Berci's report which is listed in our Resources section.

Hi, all! Just a reminder that the deadlines for submission are coming up. Poster deadline is next week & presentation slides the week after. We have a scheduled hangout TOMORROW at 4pm Eastern Time, and Saturday at 9AM Eastern Time. I know it's Passover and Easter, and I really wish we could skip it, but we can't afford to. Too much to get done in too little time. Team leaders meeting today (in 3 minutes), so I'll report out in the hangouts.

Nothing happened on Saturday (I was the only one there, sorry), and the only reason they are there is because my computer crashed when I tried to delete them. By all means, go ahead! :)

What a fascinating concept. 
 
Why do infants have deliberately weakened immune systems? To encourage microbiome growth.

The several pounds of bacteria that you carry around every day play a complex role in your health, and ongoing research continues to explore the ways that the make-up of our microbiome might effect our susceptibility to everything from diabetes to cancer.

Great teaching tool for critical thinking and planning research projects. 
 
A Rough Guide to Spotting Bad Science

The students in my research methods class have a writing assignment due fairly soon, and this may come in handy for it. 

At the very least, it will amuse my TA :-)

A brief detour from chemistry, branching out into science in general today. This graphic looks at the different factors that can contribute towards 'bad' science - it was inspired by the research I...

The Rise Of DIY Medical Devices

When Richard Van As, a carpenter in Johannesburg, South Africa, cut off most of the fingers on his right hand with a table saw in 2011, he was already designing a homemade prosthesis in his head before he even left the emergency room.

Regarding the chemistry of natural foods, I love this guy's strategy for
communicating about this issue: All-Natural Banana
https://jameskennedymonash.wordpress.com/2013/12/12/ingredients-of-an-all-natural-banana/

But for the image posted above, I'm taking it as an attempt to get people
thinking about shifting priorities in food selection. I was having a
conversation with some doctors on Twitter last week in which one of them
was ranting repeatedly that all we need to know about nutrition is to eat
real food instead of modified food with added sugar or chemicals in it.
What he actually kept saying was, "All you need to know is Eat Food."
That's the gist of the message above. Now, I was not in agreement with him,
in that my argument was that nutrition isn't that simple for people with
certain genetic differences or diseases that make their food choices more
subtle and complicated. I didn't disagree with what he said as a broad
theme, but he was using this to try to counter my argument that nutrition
and food selection can be rather complicated for some folk, depending on
health, environment, family history, and personal genetics.
