Comments for first half of September 2012

Dr. Isis asks how many first author papers someone needs to get in the game for a faculty gig.

Biochem Belle asks what you wish you’d learned more about in your coursework.

The most maddening ads about scientific research I’ve seen in a long time. “Cancelled 18 theater nights. Did not celebrate 2 wedding anniversaries. Developed 1 new method to diagnose cancer.” Yeah, because the gratitude of anonymous strangers totes makes up for ignoring the people we supposedly love. Why not throw in, “5 estranged children. 3 broken marriages.” while you’re at it? It’s stupidity for the ages, and earns a classic facepalm:

Athene Donald was asked, “Did someone ever inspire you to be a scientist?” She asks the readers of Athene Donald's Blog the same question.

Drugmonkey looks at limiting the number of citations in journals.

Labrigger has a set of guidelines for fixing electrical equipment.
