From Jean Adams: some days I look up from desk and am startled to find the whole office (of about 40 desks) suddenly empty. Can you guess which desk is mine? Hint: it's the one with the crochet bunting ;)
askFuse, our responsive research facility, is now almost 1 year old. We celebrated at a recent Fuse members' meeting with this cake featuring a still from the animation we commissioned to launch the service last year.
From Martin White: This stunning portrait of Charles Darwin is in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Sometimes when you've done three hours of work on the train down (starting at 7am), delivered two hours of teaching, and know you'll do another three hours of work on the train home it's okay to spend an hour in a gallery.
From Jenni Remnant: this hedgehog followed me home the other day. Again: not particularly public health-y, but still damn cute.
Just to remind you:
Each Thursday of 2014 we’ll try and post around four pictures on the Fuse blog that capture our weeks in public health research, from the awe-inspiring to the everyday and mundane. Given that more of the latter than the former exists in my life, I foresee problems compiling 208 images worth posting on my own. So this is going to have to be a group project. Send me an image (or images) with a sentence or two describing what aspect of your week in public health research they sum up and I’ll post them as soon as I can. You don’t have to send four together – we can mix and match images from different people in the same week.
Normal rules apply: images you made yourself are best; if you use someone else’s image please check you’re allowed to first; if anyone’s identifiable in an image, make sure they’re happy for it to be posted; nothing rude; nothing that breaks research confidentiality etc.
Also, this doesn’t mean we wont also be posting words. You word-based posts are, as always, much appreciated.
