1. Is the history of science still relevant?

It was a simple request: “Try and put the fun back into microbiology”. I was about to write a new practical course for first year students, and apparently there had been complaints that microbiology is just another form of cookbook chemistry. Discussions showed that they liked the idea of doing their own experiments without a pre-determined outcome. Of course, with living microorganisms, safety must be a major concern, and some control was needed to prevent hazardous surprises, but “fun” and safety are not mutually exclusive.

2. Poetry’s Microscope: PAD Challenge 22

Price Gun

Participants were handed an interesting writing challenge this morning. We were asked to write an “under the microscope” poem; either literal or metaphorical.

I doubt many of us can leap into our labs, scan a few slides and take up the scientific poetic slant, but you never know. I may try one later today; I do have a couple of ideas that travel that path.

My first attempt to satisfy this challenge is below. I’m not sure why Muse took me on this tangent, but it was the first thought to jump up and demand my attention.

I hope you enjoy the resulting fare.


What Price Celebrity


What price paid for fame

That we seek this scrutiny?

What price extracted in a game

Of hide and seek and infamy?


What price do innocents pay

For camera shots at school,

Where others are brought to bay

And thrill-makers stand to drool?


What price for bodies abused

For weight, highs, lows, or sleep?

What price to be so pursued,

In the name of love, admiration deep?


What price paid for a moment’s peace

Within the fish bowl of personal making?

6. The Microscope History

The microscopes existed as tools of observation since the end of the sixteenth century;
The Englishman Robert Hooke (1635 - 1703) constructed a microscope and observed slices of cork;
In 1665 he published a book on the train that used cell (small cell);
Different plants and animals observed under the microscope and found that all living beings were formed in small vital structures;
In 1838, the German botanist Matthias Schleiden (1804 - 1881) and the zoologist Theodor Schwann (1810 - 1882), formulated the cell theory which states that “cells are the basic unit of life and that all plants and all animals are made of cells “;
In 1885, Rudolf Virchow (1821 - 1902), stated that “every cell comes from another cell.”
In 1878, the biologist Walther Flemming (1843 - 1905) proved that “the division of a cell produces two cells from the mother cell”
