Does Your Future See A Tablet or A Laptop?

I'm at a crossroads. In the near future I'll probably purchase a new gadget. And here's the rub. I LOVE the idea of getting my hands on one of those supa-dupa new laptops that have too many bells and whistles to count. They're light, batteries last forever and I could officially say bub-bye to my too-old-and-done-long-ago-lost-it's-mojo laptop. But. There are now tablets galore, and the latest iPad is sexy as all get-out.

Who's Rockin That New Welch T-Shirt?

Why Photini Sennis of course. Associate Professor in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology. And how'd she get that Welch T-Shirt? She clicked on our FEEDBACK button on WelchWeb, and she gave us FEEDBACK. We picked her name at random, and the rest is history. All I do is show up with a camera and capture the bliss.

Profit & Industry Compromise Scientific Bias

This is the theory put forth by Daniel Sarewitz, and he zeroes in on Biomedicine as the chief culprit. However, you only have to look at any of the "latest findings," or "recent studies" to see other mounting evidence first-hand. A drug passes today, months later or several years later we're told it's actually no good. Or, it was actually bad. Or that certain involved parties received cash and there we go, off and running. We assemble the nefarious puzzle pieces almost by memory.

Welch Informationists in "The Maryland Medical Journal"

Could there be any real doubt that our Informationists are taking the world by storm? Our very own Peggy Gross, Public Health and Basic Science Informationist, and Victoria Goode, Clinical Informationist, recently had an article published in the Maryland Medicine Journal. Of course, these aren't the only Informationists from Welch who've had articles published---they're just the most current ones. By next week, who knows what'll be in store. Enjoy.

Welch "Burn Calories, Not Gas" Bike Ride

We're scheduled to kick off our ride on May 18th. As fate would have it, that's also the official "Bike To Work" day. I'm sure Hopkins has a good many folks participating in Bike-to-Work, BUT, if you want to participate in OUR event----we'll show you just as good a time.
