Good Bye Glasgow

On 21 Sept 2009, I am leaving from Glasgow to Exeter early in the morning at 9am. The journey takes about 8.5 h by Cross Country train.

I had moved out from university hall in the second week of September, then I stay at temporary accommodation called Beerbridge Annex, which situated at Firhill Road Glasgow (will share the facilities in the accommodation next time).

During the transition period to Exeter (1.5 week), I have had several dinners, trips with friends and also carry out some additional research in my lab@ Glasgow Uni. Fortunately, I managed to take picture with some colleagues before I leave the lab. i am pleased to get positive feedbacks from my supervisors and they are to have a good student in the lab as well..haha..

Glasgow is a lovely city and I love it so much despite of the awful weather:-p, Postgraduate training at Glasgow University has provided excellent training for career in science.

Organic Or Local Fruits and Vegetables?

another article on organic food,

ScienceDaily (2009-09-03) -- The emerging trend toward healthier, fresher foods presents new dilemmas for conscientious consumers. Marketers tout the attributes of "organic" food, while the "local foods movement" is gaining popularity throughout the world. The "organic-or-local" debate is particularly interesting when it comes to fruits and vegetables; but do consumers really understand the difference between "organic" and "local" produce? And what price are we willing to pay for these fresh, premium products?
