    WCSJ2013 in Helsinki, a photo-tour

    By Bora Zivkovic | September 13, 2013 |

    Flying directly from SciFoo in California to WCSJ2013 in Helsinki, Finland is a pretty long trip that requires a pretty big airplane. Those of you who know me well, know I am obsessed with airplanes, am an addict of FlightAlert, choose JetBlue on domestic flights in order to continuously monitor flight statistics, and my first requirement when someone else is booking my flights is "the biggest airplane you can get".

    They eat horses, don’t they?

    "Behave, or I'll send you to Italy!". That's a strange threat! Wouldn't it be wonderful to go there to visit the wine country, see the art in Florence, learn some history in Rome, and enjoy the Adriatic beaches? Not if you hear the above and you are a horse! […]

  • Sharks have rhythm, too

    Sharks have rhythm, too

    By Bora Zivkovic | August 7, 2013 |

    Sharks are not known for being good at running in running wheels. Or hopping from one perch to the other in a birdcage. Which is why, unlike hamsters or sparrows, sharks were never a very popular laboratory model for circadian research . The study of fish came late into the field of chronobiology due to technical difficulties of monitoring rhythms, at the time when comparative tradition was starting to make way to the more focused approach on choice model organisms - in this case, the zebrafish.

    Good Night, Moon! Now go away so I can sleep.

    By Bora Zivkovic | July 25, 2013 |

    Mars has two moons - Phobos and Deimos. Here we see Phobos passing in front of the sun, as seen from the surface of Mars. How would having two moons with different phases affect behavior of Martians? Scientific papers usually don't faithfully convey exactly how the researchers came up with the idea, or the chronological order in which the investigation proceeded. […]
