I am a cell and molecular biologist, researcher, scientist, nerd, hopeless romantic, music lover, Osage/Kaw/Cherokee of Oklahoma, and this will serve its purpose.

These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack
There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.
A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.

I just finished the best vacation of my life yesterday. I went to Oahu to meet my boyfriends parents and we had so much fun exploring the beaches, watching the sunrise, nightlife, snorkeling, kayaking, bbqing, and visiting with family. Take me back! Aloha

76% of negative feedback given to women included personality criticism. For men, 2%. The study speaks to the impossible tightrope women must walk to do their jobs competently and to make tough decisions while simultaneously coming across as nice to everyone, all the time.

Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.

I want my own home, to finish my half marathon, and have a life partner more than shoes, a yoga gym membership, or temporary love. I’m reminding myself this every day as I work towards my goals.
