Measurement Project

It's been a long while since I last touched this blog of mine. About time to clear out some dust.

I've been taking measurements on bacteria and the effect of fungal extracts on bacterial growth, and it seems that the bacteria don't respond to the fungal extracts. It seems as if they are not getting killed by the extracts, as I had hoped for. But I'll wait till I do the statistical tests and data analysis before I make any comments on it.

I've gotta re-look up my literature and see if it's really E. Coli that aren't so effective...

Housing Again

I seem to have little luck with housing offered by UBC housing and conferences. This time round, it's all because I wasn't accepted into the housing lottery offered by UBC Housing and Conferences, and so I'm going to appeal my for my position (1105!) to be improved. If I can even make it to around 100 or 200th position, I'll be happy enough because there's a very high chance that I can make it into housing, though it may not be the one that I want. Well, I hope the other options are open too. sigh...
