I previously blogged at a place called diseaseoftheweek.wordpress.com which is still going strong without me and this series of posts comes from when I wrote there.
One commenter didn't like my take on Cotard's last week. I ran it past a couple of friends who said they had no problems with it and I'm not an expert, just an interested researcher.
I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again about other medical conditions but this is my favorite. Having a favourite condition sounds incredibly weird I know but its true.
I've been putting this update of for a while because, well I kind of stopped. I didn't mean to but my new job was really demanding and has a steep learning curve, I also had some writing assignments I wanted to finish off and also I have a thesis.
I'm still on a kind of break, you may have noticed as I have been throwing up some pre-prepared material and today is no different. After writing that previous piece on vaccination coverage in the media I got contacted by Kylie from the Token Skeptic podcast and did a short interview with her which you can find here.
I organised my first event at my new job in early December, "Science Behind the Headlines: Beyond 7 Billion". This post was written up by a friend of mine, Captn Skellet from A schooner of Science after she attended the event.
An old post but a good one for Christmas time. This previously appeared on my blog when it lived at fieldofscience.com. I hope you enjoy and I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
Something that has really gotten to me in the last few years is the rise and rise in volume of the anti-vaccination movement. Particularly in Australia this movement has started to enter the public consciousness and continue to spout their nonsense into the public arena.
How bad a biomedical science blogger am I! I have been so flat out with all my other projects that I completely missed World AIDS Day. I feel a little dim about that but never fear as I was sent a great Q & A The Journal of Infectious Diseases has put together and I strongly suggest you all check it out.You can find the Q & A at this Oxford University Press page.
In my post about going vegan for a month I mentioned that during that time I ran a science outreach event in regional Victoria called "Science of Fiction: Doctor Who" and that I took a bunch of pictures on the way back.
