    Off Topic: Happy New Year, In March

    For those of my readers who are celebrating it, eid-e shoma mubarak! That’s “Happy New Year” for Iran, Afghanistan, and a number of nearby areas. It’s a Zoroastrian-derived holiday, on the solar calendar, and thanks to my Iranian wife we celebrate it at home. I can fully endorse the emphasis on special holiday sweets (such… Read More

    An Interview

    For those of you with subscriptions to Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, they have an interview with me up at the journal’s site. It’s in the “Scientific Life” section, and I was very happy to be asked to do it. Read More

    Snow Versus Scientific Progress

    In case anyone’s wondering, I’m not even at work today – no one at my company is; they announced last night that they were closing down for the day, which was welcome news. For those of you not living in the Northeast US, it’s been snowing merrily along since earlier this morning, and by the… Read More

    A Traffic Record

    I wanted to thank everyone who comes here for making January the biggest traffic month ever on the site: just over 480,000 page views. That seems like a lot for a site that features no cat videos (not that there’s anything wrong with cat videos), no partially clad women (not that there’s anything wrong with… Read More

    Another Recipe: Cornbread

    Here’s the cornbread that I made to go along with the bean soup – in fact, I’m eating a piece now as I write this. This is adapted from the Cook’s Illustrated people, and I’ve found this to be one of the better all-cornmeal recipes I’ve tried (a lot of recipes have half wheat flour… Read More

    A Christmas Break

    Blogging will be light and irregular around here until after the first of the year. I’ll probably post a recipe or two, as I tend to during this season, but unless something gigantic happens in the science/chemistry/pharma world, I’ll be taking a blogging break. I hope that everyone out there celebrating Christmas (or other such… Read More

    Chemistry Software Questions Answered Monday

    After that ChemDraw post from a few days ago, I had some contact from Philip Skinner, one of the Perkin-Elmer employees who helps support their chemical software (ChemDraw, ChemDraw4Excel, E-Notebook, Inventory, Registration, Spotfire, Chem3D, and so on). He’s agreed to hang around on Monday here at the site to answer whatever questions peopl… Read More

    Thanksgiving Synthesis

    Well, I know that it’s an odd time for me to be posting here, but I’m up working on some Thanksgiving food for tomorrow. The chocolate pecan pie recipe that I’ve posted here is back, by popular demand of my family (and me), and one of them is going to be coming out of the… Read More

    Back On the Air

    Over here to the west of Boston, we had a real storm – downed tree branches all around my neighborhood, power outages – but fortunately nothing like what they had further south of here, starting in Connecticut and really picking up in New York and New Jersey. So it’s back to work, on the somewhat-delayed… Read More
