Next week, we go to the Alps for a sampling trip near the Val Rosegg glacier. We'll be taking benthic and sediment samples in new streams near the glacier. For three days, and I'm hanging around for another two while we're there. It should be pretty awesome.
I've been watching a lot of Ted Talks, which are short online lectures by a huge array of intelligent people on any topic imaginable. www.ted.com/talks
