Twelve Months of Drug Monkey (2014)

Dec 02 2014 Published by under Blogging

Apparently I missed this meme last year. huh.

The rules for this blog meme are quite simple.
-Post the link and first sentence from the first blog entry for each month of the past year.
I originally did this meme, after seeing similar posted by Janet Stemwedel and John Lynch. Prior editions include 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

If you blog, I encourage you to do your own year-end wrap up post.


2014

Jan: A December 18 post on the Rock Talk blog issued an update on the funding rate situation for grant applications submitted to the NIH.

Feb: A new post at Speaking for Research details the history:

Mar: This is important enough to elevate to an entry.

Apr: I have been experiencing a sharp uptick in high school projects that are apparently titled: "Email questions to some random expert on the internet" lately.

May: This is an overview of a presentation in Symposium 491. Scientists versus Street Chemists: The Toxicity of Designer Marijuana presented Wed, Apr 30, 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM at the 2014 Experimental Biology meeting.

Jun: It has recently come to my attention that not everyone views the no-cost extension (NCE) of a NIH grant the same way I do.

Jul: I realize this is not news to most of you.

Aug: The Sesai suicide has been deemed the result of an anti-fraud witch hunt by well respected biomedical ethics / conduct of science / publishing / open science dude Michael Eisen.

Sep: One of the more awesome and fun parts of running this blog for so long is watching you all progress in your lives and careers.

Oct: Some days... I tell you, one of the most hilarious parts of this blogging gig is this.

Nov: The best known Klingon proverb ... is proof that before they were warriors, the Klingons were academicians.

Dec: The NIH has notified us (NOT-OD-15-024) that as of Jan 25, 2015 all grant applications will have to use the new Biosketch format (sample word doc).

    Dear Datahound,

    Please blog about how one might rig a national society of scientists election so that the year after they were president a total jackwagon egolunadouchetard gets 'elected'. I'm thinking past president might want to enstate said eoglunadouchetard so they look so good by comparison.
    Hypothetically. Of course.

    xo,
