Nature Magazine: early career researchers toolkit

Nature magazine has a very useful and practical segment for early career researchers. The articles cover various relevant topics for starters (and pros too): how to work overseas, how to publish, how to seek funding, how to write an non academic or an academic cv, how to write a great paper, and more. I should have shared this during national STEM day but better late than never. Please share it with your loving science, technology, engineering, and math persons you know. Link:

The old tech is new tech!

My teenage daughter is enjoying listening to her favorite singer on on a 30yr old vintage cassette (tape) playing Walkman. She finds such 20th century technology to be cool. The experience with physical nondigital actions, such as pressing FF (Fast Forward), REW (Rewind), Play, or ejecting then reversing a tape is not just an old school thing anymore. Now, she is asking for a recording option. Similarly, my teenage son loves listening to his latest hip hop albums via a modern LP record player. Turning the disk or switching from one record to another is a cool experience. Both of my kids also bought old vintage instant cameras and are pressing me to find them films. Who said technology need to be solely digital for the future generation? #Retro #technology is true innovation that is crossing multiple generations! We need to continuously learn and appreciate the “old” in order to build a better “new”.
