New Podcast: Living the PHD Life at PaleoRunner

Aaron Olson of Paleorunner and I have done a new podcast, discussing how to put PHD into practice. We cover circadian rhythm entrainment, general food guidelines, exercise recommendations and how to make the Perfect Health lifestyle work, even with a busy lifestyle. Here it is on Youtube:

O Come, Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! My favorite Advent hymn

provides a good prayer for the PHD community:

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,

Who orderest all things mightily;

To us the path of knowledge show,

And teach us in her ways to go.

This is the Vespers prayer of December 17 (O Sapientia) and, in the Catholic hymnal, the second verse of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”. But it works well at all times for a science blog.

Remember that God is with us (O Emmanuel), and have a most merry Christmas and a healthful new year!
