Daily Thesis Progress: January 2022
Printed Prolonging healthy aging: Longevity vitamins and proteins, by Bruce Ames, 2018.
Started reading Ames, 2018.
In the morning I read a bit more of Ames 2018 paper.
Today my book Blind Analysis for Design of Experiments arrived. I ordered it last month. I browsed through it a bit.
I am not getting enough journal reading in so I think I will implement a policy of 1 article per week minimum.
Finished reading Ames 2018.
Reading in Xu, 20
Printed McCann (2018).
First class of Cellular Signaling, being taught by my advisor Larry Duffy. It is a 1 hour class meeting 3 times a week.
I spent most of the morning getting ready for the 2 pm meeting of the aging discussion group, and then an hour holding the discussion. 2 new non-local members, but not so many local members showed up. Total of about 7 of us.
Class in the morning (from 9:30 to 10:30).
After class I talked about my PhD project with Dr. Duffy.
In the evening I started reading a journal article … in the future I will try to do a better job of logging these (written 2/12/22 when I was reviewing these fir posting on my blog)
Protocol-Y meeting. Very good discussion. He is starting to put together his interview series for his documentary.
He requested books we liked, so I put together a list of my books. I spent quite a bit of time after the meeting doing so. I should link it here!
When I read an aging book I usually take handwritten notes on it. But a lot of these I haven’t transcribed. I figured Tom would find them useful (and perhaps other people) so I worked on my notes from reading Spring Chicken (which I thought was the best aging book I have read).
Class in the morning.
Finished entering my notes from Spring Chicken.
Started reading Kappele’s Blind Analysis for Design of Experiments and Response Surface Methodology, chapter 1 & 2 and browsed through the appendix.
Found several interesting papers, printed 3 of them and read one
Read chapter 3 of Kappele’s Blind Analysis for Design of Experiments and Response Surface Methodology.
After a day off Monday, had class today.
In the afternoon I worked on my thesis project proposal.
Spent most of the day working on my proposal for an experiment. Did a little bit more work on my reading log, getting more information entered.
Short entry for a ton of work!
Cellular Signaling class, 9:30 to 10:30. This class actually works really well with my schedule because I drop my daughter off at 9:15 for her class in Gruening. She finishes in time to walk up to my classroom in Reichardt by the time I get out.
Aging books, by author:
This page was started when a friend asked for a list of my aging books. He has begun to put together a documentary about aging and rejuvenation, and I am one of his advisors. I generated this list from my list of books in my library (which happens to exceed 2,000). It turns out I have more than 40. I took notes on about half of these, and of these about 1/4 are online (those that are online are linked; just click the title).
Alternative list in my Ray’s Readings page, which has better descriptions but only includes the books I have entered the notes for.
