  • NaBloPoMo – Day 29 – My First Book Review

    I just got the official word yesterday that my first ever book review has been accepted for publication in a journal! Woohoo! I started to do this book review in the Before Times, but then the apocalypse happened and I completely missed my deadline. But, you know, apocalypse. So the journal editors let me submit […]?

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 22 – mRNA Vaccines

    Way back in early January, when I set a goal to learn 20 new things in 2020, I didn’t anticipate things like “what’s it’s like to live through a pandemic” or “the importance of the toilet paper supply chain” would be on the list. But here we are. On a happier and more science nerdery […]?

  • Sourdough Starter

    And speaking of pandemic baking, I finally did something that I’ve been meaning to do for ages: make a sourdough starter1! Well, I’m attempting to make a sourdough starter, at least.

  • This and That

    So nearly half the year is gone. WTF? I really feel like it was January about 5 minutes ago and now it’s June! And, as I tend to do when I haven’t blogged in a while, I’m going for a bulleted list! May was cray-cray. In addition to my week in Prince George for work, […]?

  • Stuff I Learned This Year: Trademark Edition

    Another thing I learned this year is how to register a trademark in Canada. Did you know that for just $2501? All you need to do is to fill in a simple form (with your name and address, what you want to trademark, what goods and/or services will be associated with your trademark and how […]?

  • Stuff I Learned This Year: Mobile Mesh Networks

    This is actually something I learned quite some time ago, but never got around to documenting here on ye old blog1 My good friend, and NTBTWK’s Official Statistician & Tattoo Consultant, Dr. Daniel J. Gillis, is doing some really cool work in northern Labrador with Mobile Mesh networks. But what is a Mobile Mesh network, […]?

  • Stuff I Learned This Year: Excel Edition

    I like to think of myself as rather proficient in using Microsoft Excel.1. I use it for everything from keeping simple lists to advanced data analysis. I love pivot tables and conditional formatting and even have a favourite Excel function2 The other day at work I taught a bunch of colleagues, who are all very […]?
