Blobologist-approved reads: Sharks and slugs and PhDs

My ScienceSeeker editor’s picks for this week:

For those of you with cable TV, it’s Shark Week!  But for those of us with only an internet connection, it’s also Shark Week! And also Cow Week!

And in non-shark-week-related news:

  • I’ve been enjoying the Soapbox Science series at Nature blogs, and this week’s series on the future of PhD training is no exception (also check out #PhDelta on twitter). So far, my pick is a distillation of PhD disillusionment in PhDelta: PhD2.0 and anecdotes from the trenches by Jeanne Garbarino
  • Finally, the Last Word on Nothing seems to be making a little name for itself as the place to go for kinky/beautiful slug sex: TGIPF: Slug Sex Redux By Cassandra Willyard (WATCH THE VIDEO, PEOPLE).
