Haters Gonna Hate

June 17, 2015 - 3:27pm
Guess what? Once again, I got nothing. This time I can't blame a cold office, a wasp sting, a sore knee or something in my eye. I might still be overworked and need a vacation. I actually might be able to blame the fact that my building is literally shaking right now while they do something with massive machinery outside my window. (That or they're filming the next Jurassic Park on campus.) The reason or blame doesn't really matter because the truth is I am absolutely scattered and unfocused. I've got a million things rambling around in my head, but can't seem to make any of them line up to make any sense. Yet, here I sit at my computer once again trying to turn my words into something readable. In true Spartan fashion, I refuse to give up! I'll eventually fill a page and hope people don't hate it. As the saying goes, " can't please all of the people all of the time." Ain't that the truth. And when people aren't pleased or question you, they usually have no problem letting you know. Speaking of that, quick shout out to some of my readers...I really do know that I have more than nothing and aren't truly bothered when I get writer's block. I also actually really do climb 99 steps to only a fourth floor - it's an old building with very high ceilings. And I'm not really all that upset when I can't find my keys - it was just a good way to illustrate what I was trying to say and I like the purse I have.

June 17, 2015 - 2:41pm
Large data is coming up everywhere within science these days. The problem is, the data sets are growing in size faster than our computing technology is growing. Further, the use of computational modeling as a technique to investigate the world around us has become a critical third leg of science, after experimentation and analysis. As a result, computational science has developed into a discipline in its own right.

Kateri Salk: Little Fish Girl Grown Up

June 17, 2015 - 1:41pm
Growing up, my parents called me a fish. Given the choice, I would have spent more of my Minnesota summers in the water than out of it. The lakes I experienced as a child held so much wonder: the cool feel against my skin, the creatures that called that water home, and a distinct impression that these systems held secret meaning about the wider world.
