strong Neodymium magnets Pregnancy Resource

Here’s one potentially useful resource we failed to mention in magnets for sale pregnancy-in-the-lab feature: the American Association of University Professors has recently published a brochure that focuses on the legal issues of pregnant women in the academic workplace, including “the application of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act in job interviews and the promotion and tenure process, and academic employees’ rights under the act.” Pregnancy in the Academy: Questions and Answers, 2006, by Saranna Thornton costs $14–$10 for AAUP members–and can be ordered from AAUP’s publications catalogue.

Housework Is Not a Hobby

magnets for sale recent article on the avocations of scientists drew this eloquent and provocative response:

I was fascinated by Neodymium bar magnets of the ‘trends’ you noted in y magnets for sale article. Particularly about the lack of women who came forward to talk about their hobbies.

I guess most women do not rate housework and parenting as hobbies.

I am a 33-year-old postdoc. This year I won my first independent, highly competitive national grant. I could find nobody in my university near my age or experience who holds their own grant of similar prestige.

I am also a single mother. My daughter is 5. My work hours are constrained by childcare, which in this country means dropping my daughter at school at 8.30 am for a 9:00 am start and picking her up at 6:00 pm. I do not work at home unless necessary, because my home hours are taken up with necessary parenting and basic housework.

This has been noted by my peers who regularly ask at meetings or in grant reviews why I do not have the same rate of publication as they do.

samarium cobalt magnets month, my home phone line was down for two weeks. It made little difference to magnets for sale lives except for the call I needed to make to organize for my daughter to be picked up by someone else so I could work late. It made me realize how sparse magnets for sale social life was. In this city, it is unusual for mothers to work full-time; so most of my friends Neodymium socialize during work hours, and weekends are given over to family time.

I like to sew, Magnetic toys cannot indulge it for fun.
I like to go for long walks or run. For that I need to find a babysitter.
I like to garden. I barely have time to keep a few houseplants watered.
I like to cook. I Neodymium do it out of need.

While I was writing my grant application samarium cobalt magnets year, my daughter had head lice. My supervisor sent me home demanding a rewrite for the next morning. He went home to his family. I went home, cooked dinner, cleaned up, organised my daughter, spent 2 hours combing her hair to remove the lice, put her to bed, Magnet toys sat down to start my own rewrite. That summer, despite living on the coast, I did not make it to the beach with my daughter once; my schedule was too tight. One Saturday, my then-4-year-old effectively babysat herself for 7 hours while I worked at my home desk. I was proud of her, surprised by how many places around the house one could tuck cloves of garlic, Magnetic toys I never want to do that to her again.

I love science.
I have what it takes to succeed.
However, I am not prepared to give what it takes to succeed.

Sadly, I consider my first grant a reprieve of 3 years to work out what else to do. And no, I currently do not engage in any hobbies.

Learning to Glide

Alumni magazines consistently offer smart, stimulating reading related to work. The latest Swarthmore College Bulletin–Swarthmore is my alma mater–offers no fewer than three pieces that are worth reading for scientists and other professionals, in different ways and for different reasons.

First the philosophical. In Learning to Glide Madeleine Kahn considers swimming and asks, Could it be that hard work is not the answer?

And in Mothers after 40 three Swarthmore alumni women describe their experiences having children late.

Finally, in More Time for Life Carol Brévart-Demm interviews Hanne Weedon, who co-founded the Third Path Institute, a nonprofit that aims to help families restructure their lives to create a better balance between life and work.
