Lot’s of media outlets covering work in our lab.







I did a quick Google News Search for “laser” and “brain” today and realized that the AP story that ran on our lab yesterday was picked up all over.  Very exciting.  It’s too bad they didn’t all run the photos.  I think those are more fun than the text, but oh well — I can’t complain about the publicity!

Texas makes jobs, but not necessarily for the educated.

Been seeing alot on the news lately about all the jobs that have been created in Texas during the current recession.

I always want to see the demographic number distributions when I hear such information coming from politicians.  The one thing that I always think about with respect to job creation, for both the present and the future, is how permanent are these jobs and how will they contribute to the economy in the long run.  This article makes me think that many of the stories I have heard about low paying jobs coming from this growth are indeed true, and that very little long-term investment is being made.
