Mayor's task force to tout city's bid for Google Fiber -
Topic: Miscellaneous 5:44 pm EDT, Mar 16, 2010

Huntsville's bid for Google's ultra-high-speed broadband network just got a little more serious.

On Monday, Mayor Tommy Battle announced the creation of a Get Google task force to help tout the Rocket City as the perfect test market for Google Fiber. The group includes state lawmakers, university leaders, biotechnology experts and computer gurus.

Going through some old papers the other night made me realize a couple of things.

1. I am a nerd. I know...I know...this one was pretty obvious - but should see all of the old magazine and newspaper clippings I have kept over the years because something extremely nerdy was "cool" to me. As if I have time to actually go through it all in detail again - ha!:)

2. I am in a scientific silo at the moment, but consciously trying to bust out. When I started grad school, all the older students would talk about this "silo" - yes, I am talking about the things that store grain - and how as you get deeper into grad school, you would enter this silo state, where you were really unable to pay attention to science outside your field for a variety of reasons. I thought this would not happen to me, but I realize it has. I miss the outside of the silo.

3. I miss the media frenzy over the human genome project. It was just so fun back in the early 2000s. The articles I saved were so inspiring - everyone thought that it would change the world instantly to know the code. Some interesting stuff has come out of the completion of the HGP, and I think a lot more is forthcoming (in the next decade hopefully). But the mainstream media has forgotten for the time being.

4. We need more biopunk authors! Perhaps I should try this as a side venture? Writing scifi with a bio inspired edge?

Anyway, I love looking over things I saved from a long time ago - I can't wait to look back on these clippings 50 years from now and see how things have and have not changed.

Voltage, Current, and Resistance - three of the most important electrical properties, are elegantly intertwined by way of a the simple equation - V = IR, better known as Ohm's Law.

This is the most basic concept in electronics presented for those of you who read this blog who have taken an interest in circuitry but don't happen to be operating with a degree in engineering...

Thanks Tom:)

Recipe: Philly Cheesesteaks!
Topic: Miscellaneous 5:19 pm EST, Jan 27, 2010

So Clint came up with a modified cheesesteak recipe that is awesome, so I wanted to share!

Caramelize 2 onions (we used red, but this would work with yellow or videlia as well) in a bit of melted butter and olive oil on medium-low heat for ~1 hour. When the onions are completely caramelized (no crunch left), add a small amount of balsamic vinegar (just enough to coat). Add 1 red bell pepper, sliced, to pan, and saute with the onions until soft (~5 min).

Remove onions and bell pepper from pan. Put pan back on stove, and heat on medium-high heat. Sear two steaks (we used strip steaks - on sale this week - but other steaks could work) until medium-rare (or until done to your liking). Remove steaks from pan and cut into thin strips.

Place onions, bell pepper, and steaks back into original pan, and deglaze with ~1/2 cup red wine (we used a Shiraz). Allow wine to simmer with meat mixture for a couple of minutes.

While wine is simmering with meat/veggies, toast 4 hoagie rolls from deli in the oven under broiler. When slightly toasted, remove from oven, add spicy mustard and white cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese), and put back under broiler until cheese is melted. Spoon meat/veggie mixture on top of the cheese, and enjoy!

This recipe made enough for 4 sandwiches. (Yay leftovers!)

Buying children books is a wonderful thing - I recommend this particular online bookstore, run by my friend of over 20 years, Nancy Speas Hill.
