'Just had my day brightened up. Big Caribbean army bloke in front of me on the DLR knitting. Old lady turns to him and says “I didn't know men could knit”. He turns to her and in his best Caribbean accent says “No ma'am, the only thing men can't do is have babies. And there's nothing women can't do.” '
DLR= Docklands Light Railway, London

My kind of man!

Great words!

Sophie Gamand (France/USA) - Wet dog

Sophie Gamand is a French photographer living and working in New York. Since 2010, Gamand’s photography explores the complex dynamics of the relationship between dogs and humans. With both a documentary and fine-art approaches, she questions the place that dogs occupy in the human society. Her series Wet Dog showcases portraits of dogs photographed during their least favorite activity: bath time. Exposing the dogs at a vulnerable moment, Gamand is able to capture their wide range of expressions. She believes dogs are more than animals and have acquired a status of persona. They mirror humans and the bond we have developed with them says a lot about our own solitude and social challenges. Gamand also donates photography time and expertise to animal charities and shelters.

Hey chickadees, want something to do while I’m off doing that “being social” and “getting married” thing? I mean, besides giving me a wedding gift of cat surgery money? ;P

Learn some chem with Compound Interest! Okay, I know it’s a painful subject. In fact, organic chem is why I gave up my initial desire to become a veterinarian. But despite the pain, it’s fascinating. And Compound Interest is a master at accurate, catchy infographics, helpful study advice, and chemistry lessons from the most unexpected places.

They’re also proponents of stopping bad science, and stopping bad reporting of good science, so they’re ace in my books.

Seriously guys, I cannot express my level of new-found fascination with chemistry thanks to these guys. I’d forgotten how cool it was and how much I really loved the chemistry of microbiology, even when I didn’t always understand it.

Compound Interest: Officially loved by Biomedical Ephemera! :D
