One minute book review – The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks (Rebecca Skloot)

I’m not a great reader and I never have been but I am envious of people that can get through a book a week. Rather than give up though I set myself the challenge of reading a book a month. Maybe one day I’ll ramp this up but for now it’s a big enough challenge! In March I read The immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, a non-fiction tale of a woman who died in 1951 but whose cells never did.

How to take perfect meeting notes

There’s a trick to taking notes from meetings I learnt a few years ago and have lived by and loved ever since. I thought I’d pass on the technique to anyone who is looking for a way to improve their note taking abilities.

Hello 2012… I’m back!

About six months ago my web host deleted a database on my server, essentially wiping out the website that I had grown with articles for two years. I can’t be cross with them though as I’m the one that didn’t make backups.
