First off, the survey on condom breakage is officially CLOSED. Results will be posted tomorrow. You KNOW you're curious about this one!
Secondly, A Blog Around the Clock has the latest buttons for OpenLab submissions! Please head over and vote for your favorites! Not only that, a whole boatload of submissions have ALREADY come in for OpenLab 2009! I'm including a current list below the fold. You will note that there is only ONE Neurotopia post on there. *sniff* FINE. DON'T CARE ABOUT ME. I see how it is. I'll be fine. I'll just be in my kitchen with my head in the oven...
(Hey, if you're going to introduce Dr. Isis, you must do it with hot shoes)...anyway, Dr. Isis is funding an award for undergraduate research excellence! And she's doing it through her blog. She will donate her earnings from her blog views, and the American Physiological Association will match what she earns over the next 30 days. The final award will be presented at the Experimental Biology meeting to the undergraduate woman who submits the best abstract. This is an awesome idea, but to fund it, she needs to to CLICK. Click on her blog. Do it early, and do it often! With your help, she could present an award of $1,000 to an up-and-coming, hot young science lady. Get Clickin', 'little chickens'!
