Friday links: CSEE award winners, the most irrational number, and more

Also this week: graduate adviser vs. puppy, Eurythmics vs. the White Stripes, and more.

From Jeremy:

Which theories of scientific misconduct are consistent with the Stapel case? I might have more to say about this in a future post.

I’m late to this, so belated congratulations to CSEE early career award recipients Tess Grainger and Isabelle Laforest-Lapointe!

Social psychologist and blogger Joe Hilgard is leaving a tenure-track faculty position after four years. Here’s why. For broader discussion of the “quit lit” genre, see here and here.

“Wood wide web” discoverer Suzanne Simard has published her memoir, Finding the Mother Tree. Here is Emma Marris’ review in Nature.

The most irrational number.

Graduate advisor or Bernese puppy? 🙂

And finally, Sweet Dreams of the Seven Nation Army:

Have a good weekend. 🙂

  1. That’s a pretty great mashup.

    In the 80s, there were a series of pizza “palaces” in larger towns in Michigan and Indiana that had an organ connected to instruments placed on shelves up high all around the main dining area. East Lansing had one called Roaring 20s. Ft. Wayne had one. Indianapolis had one. Don’t remember the names. The drums, cymbals, saxophones, etc. were all controlled up front by the organist.

    Sweet Dreams rocked in those pizza palaces.

    I’m glad Joe Hilgard found something that supports the kind of life he wants to have with his family. I hope he never has any regrets in making the move.

  2. That’s a lovely mash-up; thanks for that!

    I missed commenting on your posting of the Postmodern Jukebox cover of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”, but this gives me an opportunity to recommend their amazing cover of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”, if you haven’ heard that yet:
