Back at Work

Category : NUS

Hi everyone! I'm back in campus after a month. The deluge is upon me.

Still some homework from the ship - I concentrated on soaking up the experience. Ladybug did what she could with the scanty information via SMS and one email, but she's even uploaded audio and video! So it's not bad but its now up to me to do my part; see

Wordpress allows me to insert the Swedish characters there but not TextWrangler - will have to figure that one out.

For now at least, I'll experience a spillover from the Gotheberg's visit at work - seminars by Swedish scientists at the Nobel exhibition, at Biopolis tomorrow (clinicians) and a marine biologist on the next leg - for the latter, see Raffles Museum News. It's highly apt with the 300th anniversary of Linnaeus.

And I will get Peter to give a talk on Linnaeus sometime this year in collaboration with the Swedish embassy. He's a board member of the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature and is passionate about this - he did a great job with something similar during Library Fest 2002. That was already significantly peppered with references to Linnaeus so it'll be easy for him to do something specific. He's agreed and the Swedish ambassador is enthusiastic so I'll just have to keep tabs on this one.

Richard Corlett is in town for a seminar later; I'd better post that information at Raffles Museum News too. Although Ria will pick it up for WildSingapore, to get the earliest information on biodiversity seminars at NUS, you can subscribe to ecotax.
