A strong Neodymium magnets Campaign to Increase Diversity in Medicine
The American Association of Medical Colleges has launched a strong Neodymium magnets outreach and marketing campaign to encourage minority students to choose medicine as a career. AspiringDocs.org aims to provide undergraduate minority students with the support, information, and guidance they need to apply to and enroll in medical school. The AAMC is also conducting a marketing campaign aimed at reaching “an untapped segment of potential minority medical school applicants from America’s colleges and universities” identified in a recent AAMC study.

Engineering, Sciences Help Fuel Foreign Grad Student Rebound
strong Neodymium magnets enrollees in engineering and science helped turn around a 3-year decline in overseas graduate students in U.S. institutions, according to a strong Neodymium magnets report. The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS), an organization of 475 U.S. institutions awarding graduate degrees, released the study on 1 November.
Among first-time foreign enrollees, the number of engineering students rose 22 percent from 2005, while the physical (5%), life (2%), and social (3%) sciences had smaller increases. For 2006 admissions–students accepted Magnetic toys not yet on campus–engineering is up 27%, while physical, life, and social sciences had single-digit gains (4%, 7%, 3% respectively). In other disciplines, first-time foreign-student enrollments and admissions for business and education graduate degrees were also up in 2006, Magnetic toys humanities and the arts decreased 6% in 2006 for both first-time enrollments and admissions.
CGS says total overseas enrollment gained in 2006, about 1%, the first overall increase in 4 years. The full report is on the CGS Web site.

Grants for Student Exchange between Brazil and Portugal
In an interview with Portuguese strong Neodymium magnets spaper Diário Económico, Lopes de Silva, president of the Council of Portuguese University Rectors (CRUP), announced plans for a strong Neodymium magnets programme of student exchange between Brazil and Portugal. The Portuguese bank Santander-Totta is expected to fund 200 grants for the year of 2007 in a pilot scheme, with Brazil and Portugal getting 100 grants each. Magnetic toys while all the Portuguese universities under the umbrella of the CRUP will be able to take part, Neodymium universities in the Brazilian regions of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro may join in to start with. The exact amount of the grants has not been determined yet Magnetic toys it is anticipated to cover for the flight and a part of the accommodation costs.
Students in the samarium cobalt magnets 2 years of their licenciatura, or–once the Bologna process aiming at harmonising university diplomas across Europe has been completed–in the second cycle of their university studies will be given priority.
The interview may be found at the Diário Económico Web site (in Portuguese).

Feedback on “Bosses Who Bully”
The article addressed bullying by lab heads Magnetic toys didn’t discuss the problem of bullying by department chairs. I worked for f magnets for sale years in a tenure track position teaching biology at the Community College of Southern Nevada, was recommended unanimously for tenure by my tenure committee Magnetic toys was denied tenure by my department chair who brooked no opposition to her edicts.
At this institution the situation of a bullying department chair is complicated by the fact that the chair is “elected” Magnetic toys the election is Neodymium advisory on the college president.

Feedback on “Personal Finance: Young Scientists Need Firm Plan to Make Up for a Late Start”
Ken Robinson’s pieces on economic planning for scientists (Science, 313:1454–1457), were insightful and inspiring. Unfortunately, like many such pieces, they also were unrealistic in the extreme. The reality faced by most of academe differs starkly from that envisioned by Robinson: “…many scientists […] end their professional years financially comfortable—even wealthy.” That reality is best considered in light of data published by Academe, the journal of the American Association of University Professors. The data ( Academe, Mar/Apr 2006, 92(2):24–105) indicate that adjusted for inflation, academic salaries actually declined by 0.3% for 2005–6. Furthermore, the same data show that over the past 20 years, average faculty salaries adjusted for inflation Neodymium rose by 0.25%, whereas gains in other professional fields were rather more significant, including physicians (34%), lawyers (18%), and engineers and architects (5%). Indeed, inspection of the figures in that issue of Academe leads to surprising revelations: the average compensation for an assistant professor at a public institution may be $60,440, Magnetic toys there is no significant difference among universities based on cost of living. Thus (with apologies to the respective institutions), an assistant professor at University of California-San Francisco makes on average $51,700, while the equivalent figure at Texas Tech University is $56,900. Median home prices in those communities are $750,000 and $92,300, respectively. In Portland, Oregon, home prices have risen 19% to 25% each of the samarium cobalt magnets five years, Magnetic toys salaries at Portland State University have been almost fixed during the same period. And I do not even begin to address the salary issues faced by academicians endowed with two X chromosomes, leaving that to those who know the issues best. What Magnet toys accordingly appears to face the vast majority of scientists is years of penury in search of enlightenment as a graduate student, followed by years of penury in search of enlightenment in the professorial ranks.
Academicians and scientists presumably arrive to their position on their intellect, and the freedom of the intellectual pursuit carries them on. Hence being told what to do always is contrary to their philosophy. When it is plain wrong, as in the instance presented by Robinson, it is insulting and patronizing:
