    Cold-Weather Food: Rindsrouladen

    I’ve been thinking about a recipe or two to post here, but I’ve already covered several favorites over the years (do a Google search starting with the phrase site:blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline and then the word recipe; that’ll call them up). They get used frequently around Pipeline HQ here – the gingersnap cookies were made… Read More

    End of a Year

    This is my last workday of the year – I’ll be posting occasionally into the new year, but some of those will be recipes (as is traditional around here). If there’s any big scientific news, though, I’ll rouse myself and talk about it. Today I’m just heading into the lab to get things wrapped up… Read More

    Upcoming Holidays

    I’m busy trying to get things wrapped up in the lab today – I’ll be taking the rest of the week off after this, and posting here irregularly, if at all. After Thanksgiving I’ll be getting into some of the scientific gift ideas posts and book recommendations as well. Thanksgiving will be pretty much our… Read More

    Two Side Dish Recipes

    It’s Labor Day weekend here in the US, so I’ve had the day off. As I sometimes do here around holidays, I thought I’d put up another kitchen-chemistry prep – two, in fact, that work together: grilled tomato salsa and grilled onion pickle. The recipes are adapted from those in Steve Raichlen’s Barbecue Bible, which… Read More

    August Day Off

    If my workplace and my commute are any indication, about half the biopharma world is on vacation. Let’s take this August Friday off and reconvene on Monday! Those not at work, carry on, and those at work, well, at least you can get to the equipment more easily. See everyone then. . . Read More

    Day Off

    Rather than speculate about the UK this morning, which does seem to be the thing to do, I’m going to plead illness instead. I’m fighting off a sinus infection, which I could certainly have done without, and I’m functioning at less than peak levels. The frontiers of sciences are going to have to do without… Read More

    Day Off

    Judging from the traffic this morning, a good part of the working world has today off, and I’m going to take a one-day holiday from blogging. I’m at work, though, and will be pushing back the frontiers of human knowledge at my usual pace (at least). No six-hundred-degree wads of magnesium turnings, though, that’s for… Read More

    Speaking at Northeastern

    For those in the Boston area, I keep forgetting to mention that I’ll be giving a talk at Northeastern U on Thursday night. The talk starts at 7, at 115 Hurtig Hall (360 Huntington Ave.) The student affiliate ACS chapter is having a joint meeting with some other local chapters, so there should be a… Read More

    Day Off

    I’m taking the day off and making a long festive February weekend out of it. Blogging resumes on Monday, with a number of topics stacked up to talk about. See everyone then! Read More

    Back On the Air

    Blogging should be getting back to normal around here. My viral infection, as I found out yesterday, shaded over with aplomb into bacterial pneumonia in both lungs, but at least a person can take antibiotics for that. It’s also a good thing that most cases are caused by gram-positive bacteria, which gives plenty of options. I’m… Read More
