Global Health Opportunities at Hopkins

You know what this Site is----???---it's a mixed bag of global goodies and treats. Want to get out there? See some sights. Make a change. A difference. You know who you are. How about tackling Newark, NJ?! Nada. No. Won't happen. Not sexy. Not happening. But Mozambique? Ohhhhh yes, you know you're on that plane.

Hopkins Neighborhood Fund Promotes A Variety of City Resources

Sometimes, when we glance around to see all the daily development that feels like such an ongoing component of Johns Hopkins  ("look there's another new building!") don't we put on our jaded think caps and say "well, it IS Johns Hopkins!" And that's our little way of saying they can do pretty much as they please, am I right?

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.

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. "Happiness is....."

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.
