A few links…

  1. On how to teach science effectively:

    Give college students less instruction and more freedom to think for themselves in laboratory classes, and the result may be a four-fold increase in their test scores.

  2. On the hoary history of food spiced with chillies:

    The tropical peoples’ preference for hot food thus has a hoary history, dating back at least 6100 years.

  3. A review of minimal perl for the Linux people:

    I really enjoyed going through this book, especially because of its focus on the practical side of using Perl and taking a minimal approach.

  4. On academic haiku:

    The idea is that the haiku should represent some of your work (a paper, a book, a dissertation, etc.).
