  • BrainTrain KickOff meeting 29-31/10/2010 Amsterdam
    Oliver Stiedl the students were introduced to methods like 2 photon microscopy Ca imaging telemetric measurements and behavioral tests Another coffee break sponsored by Evelyn s chipknip card was followed by a workshop on social media by Annet van Betuw During this workshop the significance of social media in the modern globalized world was vividly explained to the flabbergasted students using a new kind of presentation technique called prezi Also it was tried several times to clarify the use of this weblog but it seems that there are still some open issues The social event of this first day offered again some difficulties to Evelyn mainly caused by public transport but again she justified her reputation as one of the best EU managers worldwide Authentic dutch food including hutch potch and vla flip and strong belgian beer left a comfy impression and prepared everyone for some hours of recreative sleep Saturday 30 10 10 As soon as everyone had made it to the man made island called Ijburg in the north of Amsterdam and found the wonderful meeting location called L63 Matthijs Verhage gave a warm welcome to the students their supervisors and the organisers Several lectures followed to elucidate the work of the partners in the BrainTrain project their particular contribution to the project and how everyone is going to work together during the next 3 4 years This time lunch consisted of hot tomato soup and organical sandwhiches what brought up some disappointment because most of the students fell in love with dutch milk rolls the day before Lectures were given by Peter Heutink Piero Carnici Guus Smit Eckhart Gundelfinger Helena Danielson Heidi de Wit Angus Silver Thomas Kuner Rhiannon Meredith Claudia Bagni Oliver Stiedl and Christian Gutzen After some administrative issues were mentioned in front of the students so that they were able to ruminate about them during the next years the students were sent away to give the supervisors senior researchers and organisers some privacy The social event of this evening combined a channel cruise in Amsterdam with some kind of restaurant hopping Again excellent food in both restaurants and belgian beer brought people together and helped perfectly to build a fundation for real life social and scientific networking Sunday 31 10 10 Despite the fact that this Sunday everyone was already quite exhausted after 2 days of intensive introduction the students gave excellent talks providing information about their scientific background the planned time line of their work during the next 3 4 years and their contribution to BrainTrain Unfortunately the magnificient lunch did not got the deserved appreciation due to the fact that everyone was eager to return home and get some rest Conclusion Please provide some comments For example I think we need some kind of mailing lists and a password protected area within this weblog Also a FAQ for frequently asked questions regarding traveling reimbursements would be helpful I guess but of course also password protected This entry was posted in weblog Bookmark

  • 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami
    continued and my eyes were fixated on the 4 storey that to me looked like it was going to collapse By then the only question on my mind was what should I do if the building fell over Thankfully it did not and soon after the shaking stopped I don t remember how long the shaking actually lasted for because it sure seemed like an eternity I decided to go to work even though I was sick that day to get more information since I don t know Japanese I found out later that the earthquake epicenter was just off the coast of the Tohoku area northern Japan and it would be the biggest recorded earthquake in the history of Japan There were tsunami warnings for almost all the coastal areas of Japan Yokohama included the phone lines were all busy and electricity was cut off Everyone was so worried especially those with friends and family up north whom they couldn t contact We were told to stay indoors and on high grounds The trains had stopped and people took refuge at the nearest indoor building For us we stayed at work It was not until nightfall when electricity had returned As we looked on the internet we discovered the devastation that had just occurred The video that stuck a poignant image in my head was one that showed an entire city being engulfed by the tsunami I was really hoping that all those houses were empty It was not until dawn that we found out that there might be problems at the Fukushima nuclear power plant I m sure everyone is familiar with the Fukushima nuclear power plant by now There has been a lot of panic outside of Japan on the matter I ve been keeping up with the news and have been assured that the radiation levels are at a level that is not dangerous to human health As a matter of fact the radiation levels are almost negligible outside of the 20 30 km radius of the Fukushima power plant A lot of the foreigners at work did leave the country briefly but it was always due to family pressures As of today almost everyone is back at work However as the nuclear power plant has been shut down there is now not enough electricity being produced and provided to the greater Tokyo area This has been the major disruption to work as we are now required to use 30 less electricity But everyone is doing their part Quoting from Japan s Prime Minister Naoto Kan In the 65 years after the end of World War II this is the toughest and the most difficult crisis for Japan So many people have been left homeless without food and electricity The temperatures have been almost sub zero up north Aftershocks are still going on It will take an immense effort to rebuild from the world s most expensive natural disaster Please make a donation if you can
