A double whammy of interesting reads today. Last week I was at the Canadian Obesity Student Meeting in Edmonton (thoughts about that to come shortly), and this week I’ve been catching up on work. Things should calm down by the middle of July though, so I’ll have some new posts up around then.
I like to tweet interesting stories and articles during the week (follow me @MrEpid); if you follow me you might have seen these links already:
- I reblogged Normally Distributed‘s comments on this earlier, but here’s more information about the “Science: It’s a girl thing” debacle. For other thoughts, check out Bob O’Hara’s post on Deep Thoughts and Silliness. Seriously – the video makes me think it’s a Maybelline or Cover Girl ad.
- Two blind sisters in Mississauga received Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals for their work advocating for the disabled. I had a chance to meet Sister Rabia recently, and she’s an absolutely wonderful person.
- Would you tweet your doctor? Nelly Matorina has some interesting thoughts on the issue.
- Are schools going too far in measuring student BMI and banning junk food? via Sam C
Have a great weekend!
