About choice of words and citation levels

I have been thinking a lot about “labels”, recently – about how they are subjective, and about how they have consequences. For instance, calling July 19th “Freedom Day” doesn’t really mean that Covid-19 is no longer prevalent, or dangerous. Cases, hospitalisations or, indeed, deaths, didn’t dramatically drop between Sunday 18th and Monday 19th. Yet, the “Freedom Day” … Continue reading About choice of words and citation levels

April 2021 round-up

This month has a taste of fresh start, for me. The teen went back to university; the kiddo went back to class teaching (even if it was delayed because of a false positive Covid rapid test result); the lockdown restrictions started easing; the husband received a fantastic job offer; and I had my first Covid … Continue reading April 2021 round-up

One month later, I am happy, delighted, ecstatic to let you know that we did move! Hooray. I am … Continue reading July 2020 round-up

June 2020 round-up

I hope you continue to do OK during these strange times. I am healthy and content, though I am struggling with the passage of time. On the one hand, I can’t believe that just over 4 months ago I was doing X or believing in Y completely different from today – it feels like many … Continue reading June 2020 round-up

May 2020 round-up

Earlier this month, during one of my runs, I spotted a beautiful mirror, in a skip, outside the flower shop. I took a photo for my “Today’s run” series. But, then, I remembered Denise Agosto’s beautiful post about an abandoned coin on the pavement. In the post, she reflects on how the fear of the … Continue reading May 2020 round-up

So, I thought that I should write a short update on what I have published in the last couple of years. Let’s start with the … Continue reading Recent publications #2

Yet, LinkedIn is not usually thought of in the same pool of useful research tools.   LinkedIn can be … Continue reading [Miscellany] LinkedIn as a research tool, tips for writing non-fiction, and reading at the dinner table
