I have a great time thinking about the sciences. I have worked as a basic scientist, a statistician, and a doctor (oncologist). I am interested in the natural world. Of greatest satisfaction to me is the help I have given others along their paths.
Learning something. Talking with people with similar world view but different backrounds
Beer, wine, fruit drinks, V8
Lead off with someone prepared on topic and will give 20-30 minute what is new and overview.
I love Banksy! I don't know of any medical geography topics right now, but I will keep an eye out. From time to time, in Austin, the LBJ school will host symposiums that might have similar themes to medical geography.
That does sound fun, and I saw the event that you posted. Unfortunately, I'm going to be working that night. Starting at the end of the month, I'm going to have an usual schedule, with Saturdays and Tuesdays off. But I'm looking forward to tomorrow's event!
Hi, Peter - in answer to your question, there's a TED talk about DIY bio at this link that probably explains it best: http://www.ted.com/talks/ellen_jorgen...
You can also read about it at this website:
Again, I'd love to see something like this get going in San Antonio.
Hi Peter! So glad to see you on Meetup! How is the book going that I left for you? I have three more to dole out, but will schedule our first conversation soon. I just finished the Immortal Life of HeLa. Talk to you soon. Sandy/Houston/Survivors in Science Meetup
Hi. Medical Geography is a geography discipline that concentrates on geographic factors of health world wide. It covers a lot, but I'm not certain how common it is to find at universities. I was lucky enough to take a class at UT. It can range from Sub-Saharan Africa/SE Asia issues to issues right in our own back yard. http://geography.about.com/od/cultura...
The Nano presentation at Maverick was part of the San Antonio Public Library's What's the Big Idea? project. See http://guides.mysapl.org/bigidea
Mike is kind enough to post these programs for us on the Science Cafe page.
This is why there was no introductions of members, etc.
Despite that I hope you enjoyed the program and will come again to a another What's the Big Idea? presentation. The link will show you upcoming programs.
