As a fun way for our lab to share our research with the world, we have created a Redbubble store where you can purchase T-Shirts, iPhone cases, stickers and prints. All at a reasonable price, with any and all profits going back to funding our research.
In most microscopy images that are published in research papers, there appears a scale bar. The scale bar is like a ruler that allows you to compare sizes and distances in images from different sources. Although a scale bar is helpful for assessing by eye, many image processing programs allows you to measure distances in the image. The problem is that these measurements are in pixels.
Bit of fun, hope you enjoy
After several months of trying out both, I have settled on Spotify as my winner of the streaming apps. I have also briefly tried out MOG, which was ok but not to my liking. On the surface the scores make it look like it was a very close battle, and in reality it was… but mainly because Spotify has not been able to replicate their excellent desktop app on the mobile, making the experiance on Spotify feel second rate. This is amplified by the fact that the desktop app is FREE, while the mobile app is $12/month. I think Spotify has their priorities around the wrong way, new features and the best experience should go to those paying. In contrast, the difference between the mobile app and desktop versions on Rdio are minimal, and there are constant updates, 1-2/month meaning that any bugs are normally quickly resolved, and new features constantly added. If Spotify are able to close the gap between the desktop and mobile versions, then they will easily pull away from the competition. But as it stands, there is very little to separate the two mobile apps. It came down to better radio implementation, slightly cheaper price and more logical playlist management, which tipped the scales towards Spotify. But if you only plan on using your mobile and never the desktop, then Rdio could be the better choice.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 97,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
