I like to tweet random things (follow me @MrEpid), but for those who don’t use Twitter, here are some interesting posts I’ve come across this past week (lots of interesting stuff happened this week, so be sure to check them out!):
- First off, big congrats to Jonathan Smith for successfully funding his movie They Go To Die!! I’ve been covering the movie this week and it’s been a privilege to have him here. To recap the interview, check out Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
- The Association of Public Health Laboratories had a tweetup! The theme? Movie’s about public health. I’ve collected my favourites here, but you can read through all of them here. My personal favourites? “Saturday Night Typhoid Fever” and “Planet of the AIDS.”
- Skewed Distribution blogs about “Pox Parties“
- Emma Ware, Queen’s PhD student, won the “Dance Your PhD” contest!
- Nature writes about how we, as scientists, need to make our research easier for policy makers to understand
- Ars Technica writes about a recent study in Pediatrics that claims that early television experience can harm children and impair cognitive development
- If you’re interested in the impact of sedentary behaviour on health, be sure to join the Sedentary Behaviour Research Network!
- And finally, in some feel good news, friend of the blog Morgan (@liveitactive) writes about her experiences crossing the finish line with her mother!
Have a great weekend everybody! Check back Monday for my review of The PhD Movie!
