Queen’s ranks second in Maclean’s 18th annual survey of Canadian universities, in the prestigious medical/doctoral category; and receives the most A+ grades of any university surveyed in the Globe and Mail University Report.

Forget all that “fairness” and “consistency” nonsense.

Defense tomorrow.  You know, the insignificant event that determines whether or not I actually get my degree.  Cool.

Prayers would be appreciated.


DNA Fingerprinting. December 6, 2007

Filed under: News and Blogs,School — Annette @ 12:20 pm

From biochem:

O.J. Simpson was tested for 5 different VNTRs that are highly polymorphic (n varies a lot)
His DNA matched PERFECTLY 5 out of 5 times.
Probability: 1:700,000,000 (yes, seven hundred million)
Statistically, 6 people in the entire world would have the same pattern


Ahh, students… and the return of defiance. December 3, 2007

Some jewels from yesterday’s grading:

“I could add variety to my diet by defiantly eating more whole grains as toast for breakfast…”

“By varying the type of food I am eating I am keeping myself entertained and fulfilling my dietary recommendations.  It is important to keep your taste buds.”

“I was low in grains…vegetables…fruits…milk…and meat and beans…  I sucked this day.”

“You want to have variety in your diet, because eating the same foods throughout the course of the day is not going to give u a good source of nutrients.”

And two of my personal favourites:

“In order to gain my missing fruit and dairy servings, I could have a large piece of fruit topped with a little vanilla yogurt as a snack in place of the puppy chow I ate.”

“In the meat group, I would have poultry, bee, eggs, and peanut butter.”

Today I sent my Plan B to my committee members.  So besides the actual defense, my project is done.  Finished.  Gone.
