By Steven J. Zottoli Download PDF From the Biological Bulletin 201 (October 2001). In the fall of 1935, Albert M. Grass and Ellen H. Robinson both came to the Department of Physiology at Harvard Medical School (HMS). This entirely fortuitous confluence of their lives led to their marriage, to a commercial endeavor-the Grass Instrument Company-that would provide equipment of high quality to neuroscientists and other physiologists for over half a century, and finally to the formation of The Grass Foundation, which has benefited the neuroscience community since 1955..

We live in an era of information technology, where sequencing is cheaper and easier than ever before and consequently the landscape of genomics and molecular biology is data rich and highly dynamic. Publication mediums are evolving rapidly in order to try to keep scientists everywhere up to date with the extensive datasets which are accruing. Into this melee, a beautifully produced and attractively packaged hardbound book of authoritative edited reviews seems at first glance anachronistic. Such reviews can be the subject of generic criticisms, that they serve only as a snapshot and therefore have a short shelf-life, which may be further shortened by the limited distribution of a specialist text. Further, since they are not in an electronic format the reviews cannot be hotlinked to the database resources from which they draw and are less accessible for translation by non-English speakers. Importantly, in terms of public accessibility and public engagement, this sort of publication format ...
The terms early origins seem to lie in social media and photo sharing sites like Flickr and MySpace. But usage of it didnt become widespread until the second decade of this century and it has only entered really common use in the past year or so. Self-portraits are nothing new - people have been producing them for centuries, with the medium and publication format changing. Oil on canvas gave way to celluloid, which in turn gave way to photographic film and digital media. As the process became snappier (pun intended) so has the name. And now as smartphones have become de rigueur for most, rather than just for techies, the technology has ensured that selfies are both easier to produce and to share, not least by the inclusion of a button which means you dont need a nearby mirror. It seems likely that this will have contributed at least in part to its increased usage. By 2012, selfie was commonly being used in mainstream media sources and this has been rising ever since ...
The Research Honors Program is one of several ways for undergraduate students to participate in faculty research projects. Such projects, if judged to be of sufficient quality and quantity, may lead to a degree with Research Honors. A written report by the student is required every semester. Students presentation of the results of their work is required at the Honors and Independent Study symposium in the spring of their senior year. In order to graduate "with Research Honors", the student must maintain a "B" average or better in the major subject, submit an Honors paper which is a report in research publication format, and be given a minimum of 6 credits of "A" for this work by the mentor. The students Research Mentor will provide a written document certifying that the student has fulfilled the criteria established for graduating with Research Honors. ...

One exception to these rules is the Social Security benefits given out to people who are disabled to the point that they cannot work, regardless of age. This one is thornier. The hard hearted part of me says that those who do not work, do not eat, but I know that there are members of our society who deserve to live, but are unable to provide for themselves. I can honestly say that I dont see this segment ever being moved completely off of government benefits, including Social Security. A residual tax on the working portion of society will probably continue ad infinitum to pay for this. But the criteria for being declared disabled to the point that you need government funding needs to be tightened, and a yearly evaluation of what someone on disability can and cant do needs to be done. For example, someone I know was in a horrific car accident several years ago. To be honest, if shed had the accident 10 years ago, she would have died. Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, and the fact that ...
