Well, I truly agree with you that jobs in biology or medical fields are very rare and finding the right one is overwhelming. People try various methods to find a satisfying and relevant job. Online sites, references, job boards, physician recruitment agencies are all the great ways to search for a fulfilling job.

As I said back-channel to Egilson, I'm less interested in condemning Linus--they've found a marketing niche, and apparently they do a good job with what they do, as far as they do it--than in warning away potentially clueless and/or under-socialized junior faculty, who could fall for Linus's pitch without understanding the implications (for tenure, etc.).  I have no particular animus against Linus or its defenders.

I am, however, also keenly interested in these copyright questions.  Even if Linus is basically a nicely glorified printer of lab manuals and course packs, the website language is troubling.  If anyone has more experience with how Linus operates in this area--someone from Linus, someone who has worked with Linus, hearsay--I'd be most interested.

A few years ago a student was rude and disruptive during the class presentations and didn't follow the directions on the final paper. So the result was... he went from an A to a B.

He was in hysterics, explaining how busy he was so couldn't participate appropriately in the presentations. And he knew EVERYTHING about business, I knew NOTHING so of course, how could I expect him to follow my silly irrelevant instructions for his paper. Like... segmenting his target market...

Wonder whatever happened to that guy.

I think he enrolled in my colleague's class this spring.

Or 30 delegates away from clinching the nomination.

Be sure to keep your mouth closed enough to eat something or you will get dizzy later.   Let them tell you things.
And order food that is not messy.  No soup.

                                   The basics of Futures Trading

There are different options in front of traders to trade in the Indian Stock Market. The Cash, Futures and Options are the common segments involved in the Stock Trading. The futures are a lucrative option for many who are able to predict for the future prices of the commodities or Shares. In the Futures Trading a contract between the seller and buyer is signed to transact at a future date. The prices are also futures prices. Money Classic research is an advisory firm which provides accurate equity tips to the traders.

I loathe The Grid that HR requires us to use for scoring applicants. Six hours, 143 applications, and and I've identified seven candidates to interview.

I've never been on that side of a search committee before, but it seems to me that less than a full work day to pare down almost a full gross of applications to a half-dozen interviewees sounds pretty quick.

Today, online gaming has changed our perspective. Online games like Rummy, Poker, Bridge and lot more have attracted the today's youth. These games offer exciting play and cash prizes as well. Playing these games need to follow some rules and regulations.

expatinuk,

We raise a toast to a good solution and hope the LOUD boys thrive in their new place.

SJ

Indeed...I am very fond of LOUD boys...I have two of 'em!

Good(ish) news about Shy Boy. The cells look like they come from an inflamed/infected cyst (perhaps an insect bite?) but there were enough mast cells to make the vet go "hmmm..." She does not think it is a mast cell tumor, so if it responds to the antibiotic he got today, plus the steroid cream I will apply, then we will not need to schedule a surgery to remove the lump.

She said something that made me feel better: "You did the right thing, getting this checked. I would give almost anything to have more clients who were as careful and considerate of their pets."  I replied that I was afraid she would think me a Panicking Polly, coming in for lumps and bumps. She responded that I was, in fact, a Highly Observant Person.

I noted that I was, in fact, a Mere Helpless Slave Who Served Cats.  Much rueful chuckling after that, as she has 3 clinic cats--and more at home!

Thanks, everyone.
