  • Aspiring to be a famous scientist?

    I am one of those people. I read about the things scientists do; the breakthroughs they make and marvel. I don't know what it is exactly. I can't pinpoint what it is that makes me want to be like them. Fame (going in future school textbooks, Nobel Prize winner)? The idea of discovering something that no-one else in the world knows?

    It has been bothering me so much of late. I want to get a kick out of studying biology and get be more passionate about it but I don't go out of my way to read up about even the aspect I take most interest in. If anything, my passion is receding and I've begun to get headaches doing any form of thinking.

    I know fame is not the reason you can go into this as you will end up selling yourself way short. I have managed to grasp things and delve into aspects in the past (research more about them etc.) but I want this so bad. Thing is, I don't want the journey to be about hard work. I want to enjoy myself and have a lot of fun. I'm a first year undergraduate in Biology. I have been told my teachers etc. I have a lot of potential and I feel I owe it to myself to give myself a chance at least of fulfilling it. Can someone please help me? Advice, anything?

  • My dream is to win a Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology. Can I do it?

    I am aged 18 and very excited in the field of biology. I'm planning on doing biological sciences at university and specialise into genetics. For years now, the dream has been to win the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology. I am curious enough but tend to be distracted easily. When I hear of Einstein, Feynman, Crick, Watson, Hunt it always hits me that I should try and be like those people; go down in history and make a significant contribution to the field I take greatest interest in. It's not that I want to go down in history alone; the idea of obsessing about something and discovering something in the world that noone else knows appeals a great deal. However, I have convinced myself at the same time that I am making a mistake as very often my dreams are shattered by sheer laziness and boredom of things very quickly.

    Btw, I am a straight A student and have been told I am very good at 'thinking outside the box', however relevant that may be. I absolutely love biology. How often do people like me come across and actually go on to do it? Am I stupid for having such an ambition?

  • Planning to do research in genetics at university. What does it actually entail?

    As a researcher, what will be a typical daily routine for me. Will I constantly be looking under a microscope or will I spend more time going through theory?

  • Need to stand up in front of people tomorrow and answer questions that require intense thinking. How?!?

    There is some university preparation coming up in our school and it involves us going up to the front of the room and answering questions on your subject choice. It is preparation for interviews. I also get really anxious in such situations: I find eye contact really unpleasant in such great quantities, I suffer from brain lapses, only way I can think is if I stare at the ground or find an excuse for not looking at the audience. I've always been poor with presentations but the intense thinking this requires is ridiculously stressful for me. It's beyond me and I fear severe humiliation. I suffer from social anxiety and feel not going will somewhat hamper my chances of getting into the university. I'm currently undergoing counselling and have been advised to tell the teacher running it the situation but I find her extremely intimidating and that alone is a task too hard.

    Is there any advice?

  • Maths - Tough logarithm questions?

    I was doing some exercises in my textbook and came across some pretty tough questions. I've literally spent so long trying to apply all the rules (which I'm pretty familiar with) but still cannot do them.

    solve for x

    a) log2(x) + log3(x) = 1

    so for clarification, the logarithm of x to base 2 + the logarithm of x to base 3 = 1

    b) 2log5(x) - log7(x) = 2.34

    c) log5(x+1) + log4(x+1) = 3

    d) 7(4^x) = 3(5^x)

  • Anyone notice how edgy Colin Ingram was today?

    He should seriously be considering a name change.

    I was thinking of something along the lines of Colin "Outside Edge" Ingram.

    On a serious note, Afridi captained quite poorly and failed to have a slip for him throughout most of his innings. He seems like a decent batsman nevertheless.

    Your views?

  • Hussey has got to be the best finisher in the world?

    What an innings today. He has proven precisely why he is rank 2 in ODI and definitely the best finisher in the game for me. What an innings from a truly great man.

  • Michael Clarke stupid decision to bowl first?

    What a dumb decision to bowl first. Aussies are so good at defending, yet they sent Pak in. They also know Pak crumble chasing yet he still did it. They have now made life very difficult for themselves.

    Pak now have a great chance of winning....

  • IPL 2011 auction in July. Allowed to keep 3 overseas I think. Which 3 would you pick from your team?

    For Delhi, it'd have to be Warner, AB and Parnell.

    It's hard to say with Dilshan really. He's a great T20 player but I'm not sure whether he'll fire next year. He is looking in bad form.

    And Nannes is getting quite old. I say we keep Parnell, who is young and who we spent a lot of money on.

  • Best Test Team currently?

    Watson

    Kallis

    Clarke (c)

    Tendulkar

    Swann

    Johnson

    Steyn

    Aamer

    Bollinger

    Left out Ponting because he not the same batsman he was in the previous decade. Also left out Sehwag because of lack of performance on non sub continental pitches.
