Salk Institute hit with discrimination lawsuit by third female scientist

This is really quite disappointing. The Salk Institute has produced some truly groundbreaking research over the years, but by overlooking female scientists who knows how much progress has been missed. I wish science as a field was better than this, but we've still got a long way to go.

I have made a huge mistake. Going to Comic Con but decided to make my own costume. I need to start on it now!

...needs drinks in it. I'm not sure how many, or what kind, but I just know that it will require alcohol at some point.

Maybe for, like, the majority of it.

Yes.

A few weeks back I heard I was selected for a diplomatic skills training program in August after having been wait listed for a while. Just got the program today and it looks really good!

There will be training in subjects like public speaking, negotiation and diplomatic protocol, speakers from the field, various short workshops in leadership skills, lectures and finally a simulation where we have to create a countries ourselves and engage in diplomatic relations.

I am really looking forward to this. Anyone else have exciting summer plans?

I have found a delightful technological toy. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will text you a image of a piece of art in their very large collection.

If you text to 57251 the words "send me" followed by a word, they will send you an artwork with that request.

So far I have received images of Michael Borreman's "Square of Despair", and Jennifer Sonderby's "Fastphoric: A Novel".

What will you ask for?

I have put art under this cut tag because the art is big and I do not remember how to make it small )

It's hitting that point in the summer when I really start wishing for winter. Or at least just to pack up some gear, throw my laptop and a sleeping bag in the car, then drive up to the mountains. Or anywhere it's colder. The question is, where?
