I’d not been physically active for most of my life, but I started working out outside three weeks ago to overcome my limits! I’ve already experienced some of the benefits of engaging daily exercise, which are consistent with my research results:) 게으른 성정 탓일까? 난 삶의 제일 우선 순위에 있는 것들 몇 개만 집중하고 그 외의 것들은 정말 신경을 쓰지 않는다. 그런 성정의 나는 운동을 한 번도 내 삶의 우선순위에 둔 적이 없었다. 운동을 꾸준히 해 본 적이 거의 없었고, 자연스레 나는 운동에 관련해서 자기 효능감이 정말 낮았다. 이런 나의 한계를 극복해 보고자 이번 달 초부터 운동을 타협할 수 없는, 최고의 우선순위 중 하나로 올려 놓았다. 덕분에 요즘 운동을 계획대로 하고 있고, 조금씩 운동이 주는 즉각적인 효과를 느끼고 있으며, 나도 운동을 꾸준히 할 수 있구나 라는 자기 효능감이 조금씩 생기고 있는 것 같다. 내 삶의 버킷 리스트 중 하나인 풀 마라톤을 뛰는 그 날까지, 한 번 달려보겠어요 ㅎ #exercise#workingout#postdoclife#researcher#bucketlist#beambitious#feelingenergized#lifeiswonderful#myhusbandismytrainer
Well this week was a S show! Holy 💩
Talk about a hot mess. Not so much the week but more so myself and my mental capacity. You even see themselves meme’s that talk about how no one researches harder than the FBI except for a mother. #truestory#researcher
I have done very little this week except research, make phone calls, get new contacts, reach out, leave messages, call different people, read articles, research papers, laws, talk to other parents, go the library to find books to take out. It has been crazy and even when I know there is other stuff I should be doing...laundry, assessing back to school clothes, cleaning...🤦🏼♀️ But it’s like I can’t turn my mom brain 🧠 off. I go to sleep thinking about it all. I wake up and it’s the first thing in my mind.
I have been doing pretty good with my nutrition and workouts until today. Today I did not work out, today I ate a bagel 🥯 with cream cheese and blueberry jam for lunch, today I had 2 drinks after dinner (dinner was a nice salad 🥗 with chicken) and some ice cream 🍨. I most definitely fell down the eat your feelings eff it trail and added alittle Carmel sauce to top it off.
Parenting is the best, craziest, amazing, hard AF, all consuming, cluster of emotions roller coaster. I would do anything for my girls. I will fight when they need me to fight. I will be their when they need to cry. I will always be there for them through thick or thin.
I personally struggle wit been all consumed by stuff at times, these are one of those times. But I know even though today was off, tomorrow will be better. I plan on doubling up on my workouts tomorrow morning because I really long this program and am starting really see some results & I know 1 bad day isn’t going to undo all my hard work. 💛
My point is life is going to get hard and fun and hard again over and over but it doesn’t mean you ever should count yourself out. I have a End of Summer Strong Sale going on. We are all starting or just started our back to school schedules, everything is a mess and the timing to grow and push yourself never feels right. You just have to do it, I mean is taking care of yourself really going to add to much craziness... NOPE!
☑️ missão concluída com sucesso!
XXXIX Simpósio da Pós-graduação do Programa de Anatomia dos Animais Domésticos e Silvestres
Mesmo com todas as dificuldades, adversidades, exaustão, ansiedade, dor, sono, fome e frio, a vontade de me superar hoje foi mais forte. 💪🧠❤️
Sou grata eternamente a Deus, à minha família e amigos, em especial a você Dra. @rekellyp pois muito além da excelente profissional, orientadora e pesquisadora que me inspira e me motiva a lutar pelos meus sonhos...cara, sem palavras pra te descrever! ❤️
Se não fosse cada um de vocês que de perto ou de longe somam forças para contribuir na minha caminhada, eu jamais teria chegado onde estou.
Esse mérito é todo nosso!
When we're doing cell culture, we don't just randomly seed any amount of cells in a dish or plate 🧫
✨ If there are too many, the cells will be confluent (= taking up all the space) by the time we want to treat them, and we can't conduct our experiments (confluent cells "act" differently) 🙅🏻♀️
✨If there are too few, the cells might die or there won't be enough for analysis 😢
✨ Depending on the experiment and the cell line, we need more or less cells. Some cell lines grow faster. Some experiments require a looot more cells. ⚗️
So, we need to determine cell concentration 👩🏻🔬
✨ It's possible to do so using a machine called a cell counter but ours died a few months ago 😭
✨ Now we are doomed (😔) to count them manually under the microscope 🔬
✨ We use a standardized slide with a grid. Since we know how much liquid there is in one grid, we are able to determine cell concentration by counting the cells within the grid 🧐
✨ We usually don't count how many cells there are in the whole grid though. We only use 3 to 9 "small square" 😁
This one is a Kova slide. There are 81 of these small squares in one grid and one grid holds 0.9µL of liquid. Can you determine what's the cell concentration (in cell/ml) of my cells from the picture? 😉 I'll give a shout-out to the first person to succeed 😁
Happy Friday 😀
Collecting the last milliliters of supernatant from my cells and setting the experiments for the next week 💪🏻 I hope that the last experiment this week will work well and I will have a nice start to the weekend🤞😊
Working outside > working in an fluorescent lit office 😎😎😎
Today is actually kind of rainy in NYC but I'm still working in the comfort of my own home so the vibe is still right. I'm working on my first National Institute of Health Biosketch. The purpose of these is basically to "sell" each researcher in the grant research team. It's sort of a surreal moment for me for several reasons.
1) I'm writing about my expertise in psychological mechanisms affecting health decision making and it's wild to acknowledge that I am indeed an expert in this topic now.. and
2) I'm using my recent publications in research my grad school advisor actively discouraged me in pursuing in order to demonstrate my competence in the field.
3) My Biosketch is going to be next to researchers I've looked up too in grad school and that equality of status is something I'm still sitting with ◽
This whole grant writing process has been tough for me mentally because I'm having to fight a lot of internal demons while I do it. But it feels fitting that the process is wrapping up with me having to focus on myself and my own work and how much I truly do belong on these big grants. What a feeling y'all ❤️
Low-tech, high-reward. St. Jude scientists have captured the atomic structure of a mechanism for unwinding DNA.
Double-stranded DNA must separate before it’s copied and the cell divides. The image shows an enzyme complex bound to single-stranded DNA along with the molecules that fuel unwinding. The structure of the enzyme complex, called the MCM complex, was known. But how the process worked was a mystery.
Eric Enemark, Ph.D., of Structural Biology, and his colleagues used state-of-the-art equipment to capture an atomic-scale image of the crystal structure of the DNA replication machinery. But Enemark took a more low-tech approach to illustrate how the crystal structure may help to solve a mystery at the heart of cell division: How DNA replication begins.
Using scrap lumber, he built a simple machine to help visualize how double-stranded DNA encircled by separate enzyme complexes may become single-strand DNA that can be copied in advance of cell division. “The structure could also provide the physical basis for getting DNA replication started,” Enemark says. “This single event is at the heart of cell division. Arguably, it’s the streamlined essence of what life entails.” #stjude#stjuderesearch#DNA#structuralbiology#sciart#research#science#researcher#scientist#diy#ILoveStJude#basicscience

Meet Sophie Arthur 👋🙂 a science communicator who loves curiosity.⠀
Sophie ( @Soph.Talks.Science) is a #SciComm officer for the London Institute of Medical Sciences ( @mrc.lms).⠀
From news articles, social media, and video editing, Sophie does it all at her new job 👩🏼💻 Not too long ago, she finished up her PhD in molecular biology.⠀
You may know her from the awesome blog, Soph Talks Science 👩🏼🔬 which won the 2018 UK blog awards.⠀
I was so excited she agreed to be my opening interview for the Fall 2019 series on The Social Academic.⠀
In our interview, Sophie talks about her top suggestions for social media, 📌 like "just be yourself. Because if you’re going to try to be like someone else, or be like someone you’re not...it will be very difficult to maintain."⠀
And, 📌 "to get the sense of community, you have to get out there first. You have to go engage with the people that inspire you, that you look up to...Just put yourself out there first, because they’re not going to come to you if you don’t go there first."⠀
Sophie is someone who inspires me 😁 Which is why I'm so excited to share this interview with you (link in bio @HigherEdPR).
I’ve never actually done a formal introduction around here, & since it’s Friday, I thought I’d take a minute to introduce myself & tell you a few things that make me tick.
You probably know this, but research & deep thinking is my happy place. I could spend 12, 14, 16 hours a day doing nothing but digging obnoxiously deep into the Bible & be insanely happy the rest of my life (not exaggerating). Also, i created & recorded a detailed, in-depth Bible course this spring that will soon be available for the hungry, wild-at-heart, deep-seekers-for-God in this crazy but beautiful world.
As a researcher, I believe a lot of very traditional things about the Bible itself. Yet in this, my research has dug up some very non-traditional (think man’s tradition, not God’s) discoveries on its pages. Actually, God has done this.
In a nutshell, here are a few things I’ve found: all that has been proclaimed for centuries about the Bible being inerrant (without error)—it’s all true. It’s the most brilliant thing you’ll ever read. I’ve also discovered that the story we’re traditionally taught the Bible tells, & the story we read *into* the Bible (yes, we do this), is quite distant from the big-picture story the Bible is actually telling. That’s scary to say “out loud,” but it’s the truth I know I was born to both discover & tell. (If that freaks you out, it freaks me out too. Trust me.) Finally, I’ve discovered that love—not grace, not forgiveness, not mercy, not glory, not righteousness (tho they’re all related)—is the most central theme in the Scriptures. If we do not understand love, we understand nothing as it really is or means.
Oh man, these just scratch the surface, but I want to tell you a few more things about me before I close this down.
Before I got into research, I worked as a commercial illustrator. I love art/design, to this day, w/ all my heart. In fact, I dream of marrying my art background w/ my research in much more significant ways one day. (Finish 👇🏻)
PI Grace Saba has a new project funded to continue looking at marine plastic introduction from populated rivers into our local marine ecosystems. •
From the NOAA press release: “Rutgers University will study the movement of microplastics from riverine to oceanic systems and the role this area may play as the entry point for microplastics into the food chain. Unique oceanographic characteristics exist where rivers and the ocean meet, and these characteristics may influence the movement of marine debris from one system to the other and the assimilation of microplastics in the marine food chain.”
These are some of the major advantages that we can enjoy by using big data.
As machine learning algorithms together with other forms of AI improve, it has become possible for businesses to use data analytics and mine deeper down that huge amount of data to derive actionable insights. And this is where the expertise of a master in data science exactly fits in.
The key importance of big data lies in how we can use the captured data and not how much of it we’ve been able to collect.
However, it’s extremely important to note that not every data captured can be analyzed as a lot of garbage remains in them.
So, it’s crucial to take the help of a master in data science to sort and prepare that data to be analyzed. Proper implementation of big data analytics can help businesses attain competitive advantage, lower the cost of operation, and thus, drive revenue.

Canada is at the forefront of international efforts to improve the health of the poorest and most vulnerable, especially women, girls and adolescent girls. This is why Canada is joining forces with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to end these epidemics for good by increasing its contribution to the Fund.
Yesterday, the Honourable Maryam Monsef, Minister of International Development and Minister for Women and Gender Equality, announced that Canada will pledge $930.4 million to the Global Fund for 2020 to 2022, an increase of close to 16% from 2016.
Le Canada est à l’avant-garde des efforts internationaux visant à améliorer la santé des plus pauvres et des plus vulnérables, notamment les femmes, les filles et les adolescentes. C’est pourquoi le Canada se joint au Fonds mondial de lutte contre le sida, la tuberculose et le paludisme en augmentant sa contribution pour enrayer ces épidémies une fois pour toutes.
Hier, la ministre du Développement international et ministre des Femmes et de l’Égalité des genres, l’honorable Myriam Monsef, a annoncé que le Canada contribuera 930,4 millions de dollars au Fonds mondial de lutte contre le sida, la tuberculose et le paludisme, pendant la période 2020-2022, ce qui représente une augmentation de près de 16 % par rapport à 2016.
