Great stuff from The Bad Plus. An album of cool covers. 
The leaderless piano trio became famous for its cover songs more than a dozen years ago. Now, an all-covers record finds an established and quirky band once again testing its powers of interpretation.

Is anyone using +Slack to manage small lab groups? Like a research psychology lab groups or a neuroscience lab group? I'm intrigued that it's more efficient than emails for those times when the group is dispersed or are looking for quick, collaborations. I'd be interested in any opinions.

We meet face to face, of course, but that's not always possible and emails tend to get lost. We've tried Trello and Evernote work chat but they are not quite right. I don't want project management. I want text and quick chat.

+Jacqueline Arsenault +Elias Mårtenson +Trevor Clarke I can see the proprietary issue being significant for some labs. For mine, it's less of an issue, as we've relied on gmail, hangouts, dropbox for business and shared Evernote notebooks. Almost everything resides outside. If Slack does what you mentioned Elias, and facilitates small group communication, then that's exactly what I'm looking for.

I think you should give it a try. I haven't used it in a business setting, but the slack that I'm part of has separate topics and the communication is instant and you see when something new was posted and in which section.

So this was my version of the recipe posted earlier. These are peppers stuffed with red quinoa, black beans, mushroom, and corn. They are vegetarian but not vegan, as I topped them with Jack cheese. I'd make these again on a regular basis.

For no particular reason, I've been sort of obsessed recently with the Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, and it occurs to me that this has got to be one of the greatest pop songs ever recorded...

Tonight's dinner was a big, deep-dish style pizza. Usually I make them thin and round, but tonight I opted for thick so that I could load it up with fresh vegetables: green pepper, red pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, and red onion. As the first photo shows, also lots of fresh herbs from my garden.

The sauce was a white style sauce: Olive oil, garlic, herbs, salt & pepper.

Great with #homebrew...

Sipping on a wee feijoa wine, most of which was bottled today, and thinking that maybe it's time I made some beer again, or some bread. Yeast is our friend :)
