I meant to post this earlier this week but things got away from me during work. Wednesday I got to see Chimamanda speak about her writing and her work as a feminist. I loved every minute of it. I was super lucky also to get my copy of the tagged book signed by her. So far I‘ve only read her nonfiction essays which I loved and hope to get into her fiction soon.

With a variety of information, each chapter in this book went into depth on a specific area of concern in agriculture but at the same time, it did a very good job of weaving all the information together. The best part about reading this was that I was at the greenhouses on the Univesrity of Minnesota Campus while learning all about the work Norman Borlaug did in his career.

I feel like the author knew what he was talking about but at the same time he wasn't sure about anything. There was no overarching story or even a time line to follow. He also repeated himself a lot throughout the book as he transitoned from one topic to the next which made me feel like he didn't fully understand how the current sections connected with the others throughout the book.

Avoiding my other schoolwork responsibilities by reading this book for class.... 🤷‍♀️ I‘m still technically doing homework right?

wanderinglynn That‘s a lot of tabs! 😂 what is the class you‘re reading it for? 8mo
Schnoebs @wanderinglynn It‘s a current issues in science, technology and environmental policy course. I have a to write a summary on my thoughts of it at the end of each book. I have a tendency of highlighting a lot in the scientific articles I read but I just can‘t do that with books so I tab them lol 8mo
wanderinglynn Ah, I understand. I have problems marking up books too. But the class sounds interesting. I‘m an environmental attorney, so dealing with environmental policy is a part of my job. And of course, there are huge overlaps with science & tech. 👍🏻 8mo

Schnoebs @wanderinglynn that‘s so interesting!!! Is there a specific focus you have??? I‘m currently working on research on equity and affordability concerns for access to drinking water. 8mo
wanderinglynn I work for the US government (currently the Dept of the Navy). So my focus has been mostly on water and one hot topic is PFAS, which among other things is found in firefighting foam. It‘s not currently a listed toxin with the EPA, but many states are looking into it. 8mo
wanderinglynn The PFAS chemicals are very persistent in the environment and in the human body—meaning they don‘t break down and they can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects. So the Navy is trying to get ahead of state regulation & develop policy on the use & potential cleanup of PFAS. 8mo
Schnoebs @wanderinglynn so are you guys focused primarily on just looking into potential levels in regulations or are you guys also looking into alternative sources that can be used for the foam? 8mo
wanderinglynn Both. 8mo

I think this is a really good book for anyone who is interested in a basic foundation on the energy industry and the struggles we will be facing with striving to gain large percentages of their energy from renewables. There are some concerns from my friends in the energy sector about some of the information not completely describing things accurately but overall felt it was a good foundation to build off of.

It‘s been a slow morning with an even slower book! Can‘t wait to read enough of this to write a review by Wednesday and quickly DNF this so I don‘t have to suffer anymore!

I can‘t believe I loved a book on the history of genetics...

This book starts at the very beginning of the field with Darwin and Mendel and works its way all the way to present day with the creation of the human genome project and gene therapy.

I would highly recommend for anyone interested in genetics, eugenics and racism, gender identity and more!

I can definitely say that I never expected myself to put off reading a fantasy novel to keep pick up a required book on the history of genes. Wow, I can‘t get enough of this and the audiobook that I‘m listening too simultaneously is superb!
