What's the point? -- A guy named Geoff from Manchester, England, decided to write a blog about his daily travels on the 43 bus. Geoff says that there really isn't anything exciting about this commute, except for those days when the 43 bus gets "pretty good." This may seem like an uneventful blog, but it won Manchester's award for blog of the year, so there must be a some excitement on the 43 bus. What to look for --You'll notice how Geoff analyzes -- sometimes too much -- every aspect of daily living, from neatly stacked mailboxes in front of a new housing development to a man who takes pictures of almost every stop on the bus route (shocking him that there is someone who is as interested in the bus route as he is)

In 2003, Geoff Schoenbaum left his mentor's lab. He had a Ph.D., an M.D. degree, a new son, his first assistant professorship and nearly $1.3 million in grants to continue brain research developed during his association with Michela Gallagher, a world-class neuroscientist at the Johns Hopkins University. It was, one might say, a very special time, the year a young scientist found himself squarely astride the shoulders of giants. His latest work, featured as the cover article the Aug. 28 edition of the journal Neuron, described how one part of the brain, the amygdala, controls representations made in another, the orbitofrontal cortex.

Tom "T-Mac" Acquarola staggered around with a can of Coors Light yesterday before lunch, good and drunk, and noted that his mohawk was freshly cut in preparation for this moment in the mud. A few hundred yards away, Belinda Cook was a vision in blue and white, her attire protected by artificial turf and her sunny demeanor made possible by the wall of crisp white tents shielding her from the insanity nearby. This is the split personality of the Preakness infield - part frat party and part lawn party, flashers on one side and women dressed like Jackie O on the other, a confusing mix of low class and high style separated by nothing but a flimsy white picket fence.
