Woops! Attentive readers may have noticed that this post went “live” a little sooner than intended before being quickly nuked by yours truly. 😉
So I had a bit of a stressful week and a bit. CALAS is harassing me again (hey, they’re finally doing stuff that doesn’t seem to waste member money!!! lol), but it seems to be under control. Work has been awesome though – I implemented a neat search feature which allows for dynamic search and display of data tables.
Brain candy for the week:
- Search for CALAS Pacific in Google and I’m one of the top hits! HAHAHAHA. Thanks to everyone for making that happen! Keep it up folks – lets direct people to a site that cares about animal welfare more than it cares about self promotion and protectionism.
- Nature News reports that although conservation targets were not met, efforts are still making an impact on preserving biodiversity. However, up to one-fifth of vertebrate species are still at risk, particularly the “uglies” like sharks and amphibians.
- Some cool research being done to grow human livers in the lab from researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Waiting for some entrepreneurial PI to start up “Liver Labs” – Your Source for Hepatic Pharmacological Testing.
Some upcoming posts – My thoughts on “Mo-vember”, CO2 as a method of euthanasia, and any neat biodiversity tidbits I come across.
