The Future of Science is Bright
Too often predictions of the future
are dystopian, full of daunting challenges due to climate change, exponential
population growth, environmental disasters, and economic woes.  Finding solutions to these problems seems so
hard, but this last month I was ab...

How transparent is the GMO regulatory approval process?
I posted this to Facebook today, but wanted to post it here as well.  A student of a friend of mine recently asked me about the regulatory process around GMO's. She wanted to write about how the process should be more transparent. As part of my response I w...

Nighthawk chicks in the corn field
From Carolina Bird Club This year, as we started pollinating, there were four nighthawks flying above our second planting.  I spooked the female when I was pulling outcrosses in the doubled haploids.  I kept an eye out for their nest, but didn't find it rig...

Warm up G major scale Scales are never anyone's favorite activity, but are a good way to train fingers and bow hand for intonation, string changes.  Practice slow and increase speed.  If you get bored, add slurs - first two n...

Leila stripped off one layer of wallpaper only to uncover four more to go. I watched a number of YouTube videos that argues that hot water and a scraper would work as well as a steamer without all the mess.  I went to Qu...

Finally getting back to normal
Fall hits like a hurricane for me.  Every year I think, I have it all together.  I have a good plan.  I can do this.  Then, reality hits.  Everything not related to corn harvest and data analysis gets shed, which means this blog, running, church callings, a...

"And the mountains echoed" review
