Friday Favorites

Ah, what a week.  But the weekend beckons...  like a firefly flashing in a meadow, there is a tiny bit of light to hold on to.  I actually don't get much of a weekend since I am headed to a conference tomorrow, but it will be (if not necessarily fun) educational.  Here's my favorites from … Continue reading Friday Favorites

Feckless Friday Favorites

I refuse to get dragged down by or involved in any of the politics today.  So I am not watching/listening to/reading the news.  I will not look at anything non-entomology on facebook.   I will only go to reputable scientific sites.  There will only be sassy entomological awesomeness today: XKCD Mutts Far Side b.c. That is … Continue reading Feckless Friday Favorites

Sucky Friday Favorites

I was at the CDC today.  Yep, that CDC and it was entomologically awesome!  It was more of a meet and greet and tour than hard core, in-depth science, but it was still great.  It was cool to see the response capabilities and I got to tour the insectary.  So in that (wing) vein, my … Continue reading Sucky Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

Finally Friday!  It's been a great week but a bit busy.  There's been some entomologically awesome stuff happening with testing being approved in Florida for mosquito control and Lord Howe stick insects breeding in CA.  Along with the new news, here's some great stuff I stumbled on. Ticks suck - I admit the first time … Continue reading Friday Favorites

Fashionable Friday Favorites

What's not to love about the national ESA meeting, and this year it is double the size because it is being held in conjunction with ICE (International Congress of Entomology).   Among the many presentations, exhibitors, and absolutely brilliant minds that I get to hear from, there is also all the "bug stuff".  I can't … Continue reading Fashionable Friday Favorites
