Meeting Marshallia

Cool Green Science

Anyone who feels an attachment to a place takes pride in the rare, endangered or threatened wild things that survive within it. Several rare or declining species inhabit that Laurel Highlands region and the Youghiogheny Gorge where I like to fish, hike , cross-country ski, canoe, hunt deer, and watch birds. Sandstone cliffs and outcrops are habitat for Allegheny woodrats and green salamanders. Timber rattlesnakes bask on those rocks, too.

I have made some great friends amongst the regular Restarters and it’s awesome to meet up and see how they’re getting on. Tell us a little about yourself. I studied Materials Science in Oxford University and I’m still finding my way, career-wise. What I’d like to do is design and invent interesting products, so I spend lots of time in hackspaces working on prototypes. When did you start repairing electronics and electricals?

And, But, Therefore (SEA meeting mini-debrief)

Environmental Economics

Once again, IMHO , the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings were a big success. The highlight for me (other than meeting all of the new economists) was the panel "Top Ten Tips for Young Economists: Teaching, Research and Service."   The call for abstracts for the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings in NOLA (!) AERE sponsored 15 sessions, an all time high. I attended X of these and each one had an audience between 15 and 25 (with one exception).

Washington Candidates, Meet Democracy Credits

How I-1464 could help you run for office. | Absolutely no one raised their hand.

Notes from the SEA meetings

Environmental Economics

I spent the weekend in Washington, DC at the SEA meetings. Here are some quick observations in the accomodations category: The hotel was very nice and I enjoyed a "Presidential Suite" the first two nights (I had to move to a room for regular riff-raff on Sunday night). It was about 1200 square feet with two bedrooms, a massive living room/foyer and a dining room. I spent about 16 hours total there (12 hours sleeping). The two hotel bars did not have a single IPA on the beer menu.
