The page on fellow blogs includes now a cooking blog!

Yes, it’s Italian food but not only.. and still at the beginning! I joins the many interesting blogs dealing with science or art already there …. but I often forget to follow on them!

Chemical ecology

Plants communicate

standing for each other on the side of the mountain.

The attack is a surprise,

the words travel in the air.

The small are protected,

the oldpay not attention.

All individuals, we rediscover being a community.

Fellow blogs

A German friend has started a blog about hiking called TAUNUSFROSCH . I have added it to our special page for fellow blogs. Have you had the chance of any of them?

☸ WITH A SCIENCE DEGREE – I love the idea of showing where a science degree can take you!

☄ BACK TO BIOS – Communicating science is hard, this blog makes reading about science a pleasure!

✿ POETRY by Claudia McGill – I like her Haikus, they are often funny!

〠 Ainguraphoto – A very active photoblog focusing on nature

🐸TAUNUSFROSCH – Hiking in good company in Germany’s sweetest region

Time is yours

In the last few days, I have tried to find a new perspective in life. Time seems to pass so fast and often in things that are not very exciting… here a trick that came useful to me… and that’s how I gave a name to what I have been doing: COGNITIVE RE-FRAMING!

You can read it on ThriveGlobal here.

Fellow blogs – NEW PAGE

I read many posts from very interesting blogs dealing with science or art but I often forget to follow on them!

My solution? This NEW page 😊

New material

I was thinking how to have a moment of rest at work when tasks get too demanding and my brain is tired… I collected these 6 ideas in the latest infographic of having a moment of rest without your colleagues to notice. What do you think? What’s your favourite? 💤

6 ways to look busy at work, how to pretend you are working in the lab

Welcome ✌️ !

I have no idea of how you found this blog but I am so glad you did!

This is a scientist’s blog born in 2016 with the short post titled Decision addiction that has so far collected 1 ‘like’! Sweet! I hope you like flowers and urban gardens! I am a PhD-ed biologist/geneticist who crossed biotechnology, biochemistry, protein science, food science, material science, biomedical devices and is now curious about cosmetic science and innovation, I started working in a biochemistry lab as a student in 2004 for my master thesis and, here I am, sitting in a cosmetic lab and still surrounded by very active white coats.
With my daily contributions, I have touched more than 2K topics going form pink to relax, from biochemistry to space, from being a scientist to the future… I still can’t believe it. Feel free to snoop around, this place is for you… and don’t forget to leave a comment!

Monday cinema

Waterproof and windproof I sail out
Feeling a fearless warrior and sneaky cat
in my soft belly.
An army of characters and attitudes
Populate me and take shifts
To go through this Monday
And to make it glittery and eye-catching
Like that romantic movie
On the big screen.
