52 weeks in public health research, part 22

Posted by Jenni Remnant and Jean Adams

From Jenni Remnant: urine neutraliser. Carehome worker's best friend. And it smells like bubblegum.

From Jenni Remnant: that health and safety sign that everyone knows, but no-one's read.

From Jean Adams: I have been working on this paper (on time spent cooking in the UK) in spare half days here and there for about the last six months. The analysis and reading are all done and I've written up the methods and results, but I've been really struggling to get the introduction into any sort of presentable shape. Writing detailed notes long hand eventually sorted me out. NB don't anyone think of nicking this paper idea - the manuscript is now submitted and you can't gazump me! 

From Jean Adams: it's on oldie, but a goodie. Well, only a few months old. I have a growing library of photos featuring Coca-cola branding. This one was taken this winter in the Alps - where Coke marketing is rife. Coke deckchairs strike me as particularly ironic given Coke's recent attempt to change the obesity conversation with the message that chairs are the 'real' cause of obesity.


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.
