Teaching (mol & cell biology, biomedical science, cellular pathology), research (cancer stuff mainly), cycling and birdwatching. Sadly, not in that order.

I avoid journal with no impact factor. Difficult to justify inclusion in the Reseach Excellence Framework. We are metrics-addicted!

Sorry meant Nature publishing group which are more established. Impact factor often single digit vs 20+ of Nature/Science.

A huge gulf. Never published in nature. Probably never will. Got many papers in NPG journals. Vastly lower impact/kudos from peers.

My PgCert LTHE tutor claimed he could teach Korean with the right resources. I asked if he could speak Korean. Answer: No, not a single word

Students want funny teachers. I teach like a stand-up comedian, only w/o any funny content or any decent jokes.

Academics. Choose your peer group well. Peer group (probably?) also affects academics attainment...

Don't do this to me. I've got Friday in my diary and not finished my talk yet!

No longer always easy to tell the difference between them (TV presenter and Prof, I mean)

Eric Mazur might be interested in that data. Could use Fitbit as a way of measuring student activity in lectures ;-)

Similarly, limiting Academics' access to Twitter during conferences results in better engagement with the presentations?

For those who obsess with making funny gifs and sharing them on Twitter, please make more effort.

Ok. Only ECM angle I'd really considered was requirement HSPG binding for APRIL and some other more obscure TNFSR members.

Wrote a book chapter in this a year or two ago. Bulk of it not dissimilar to this review. I'm what way are you dabbling?
