Coming soon!— Juggernaut mini with Fabian Nicieza and yours truly
I always get excited about this kind of announcement and comic books in general. But I rarely remember to look for them later. I haven’t read a good book in a while. That being said, this is a very cool Juggernaut design. The Juggernaut has always been one of my favourite X-Men villains.
Finally, home. 📍 Boise Airport, Boise
Did lose my connection flight but got rebooked easily. Will be arriving home about an hour later that originally plan. Now I get a chance to eat something and drink something, something 😉.
📍 Iowa State University, Ames — Last day!
Day three of “school” started bad! I hate statistics, I don’t like numbers — hate them! But it was still a good talk, helped me understand a little bit better why we do the types of tests we do. As far as the quantity of samples for the different tests we ask for and so in and so forth.
PCR! Again, used to do this all the time, it was nice to revisit but don’t miss it.
At last but not least and probably the most important (or one of the most important) talks for me. Single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs testing, this is the kind of data I deal with on a daily basis so no surprise I was very into this topic and also had a lot of questions. This concept was explained to me in very broad stokes, sort to speak, it was more in a data management manner rather than the science behind it. Thus, it was really nice to have this talk and get a better understanding of what this test is and why it’s important.
Name: Surf Zombies
Style: American IPA
Brewer: Iowa Brewing Company - Iowa
Notes: Named for Iowa’s epic surf rockers, our gnarly brain-devouring West Coast-inspired IPA features Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade hops. Zoinks! Who needs brains when you’ve got beer?
Day two of the “Super Workshop”. I little more hands-on today, man, I got to run an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, also known as ELISA. Though I am familiar with this technique, I’ve never done it before, so it was nice to get that experience. Also,I haven’t done much pipetting or lab work in a few years now and yet, it was like riding a bike.
Also got to score some seedlings 🌱, that had been treated with different kinds of herbicides (that part kind of stank). And last but not least, DNA 🧬 extraction. This I’m much familiar with since it’s what I used to do when working for Simplot and I don’t miss it!
I feel like I am cheating a little bug because I challenged myself that every picture in this challenge had to be taken with my camera, but today was a weird one. Regardless this meal definitely hit the spot today. Some Caribbean Pork something. It was delish!!!
The place in the internet I enjoy the most thought, is definitely Micro.blog!
I wrote this a year ago today. And it still is!
📍 Iowa State University, Ames school, day 2
Today I sat in a classroom for almost eight hours! I can’t remember the last time I was in a classroom listening to lectures. And these lectures weren’t by just any people, they were well regarded professors. It made think of my years of college but without the pressure that usually comes with that. I am not taking a test or getting graded. Also the fact that I am pretty familiar with most of the topics talked about, so far!
It is also serving as a good refresher for concepts and material that in theory, I already know but with the years may have been forgotten a little bit.
And we get free lunch and that’s pretty swell.
