I shot photos in the afternoon. The laptop felt heavier than usual, its fans and cute little beeps were a cacophony overwhelming the quiet hum of the newsroom.
The goal for the majority of students will be to complete the requirements for elective study and the prescribed milestones for moving toward submission of the written thesis and the oral defense. This includes successful completion of the qualifying exam and biannual meetings of the dissertation advisory committee (DAC). Oversight of PIN students is now being conducted by the Graduate Education Committee of GPN. Please contact the GPN office for further information or guidelines.
These advanced courses provide the focus for an understanding of how endogenous substances act in the brain, the challenges faced in the development of effective therapies that target the nervous system, and what molecules can tell us about disease etiology and the potential for future treatment.
Qatar is a tiny, obscenely wealthy country/. military base in the Persian Gulf that has, justifiably so, become synonymous of late with dynastic oligarchism, shameless venality , modern-day slavery , and financial support for Islamist terrorism. This, it probably goes without saying, isn’t quite the reputation the small number of obscenely rich Qataris who run the country would like their dear nation to have. Thus they’ve fronted their top public-relations/ soft power vessel—the famed Paris Saint-Germain soccer club—an ungodly amount of money to get everyone to forget that nasty slavery and terrorism business and associate Qatar with famous and beautiful soccer guys kicking balls into nets and winning trophies. And the record-shattering Neymar transfer was just the start.
I’m sorry, but what exactly was this 77-year-old Great Falls, Montana resident supposed to do? Not punch a car and not reach into his pants, squeeze out a handful of solid waste, and run that fistful of human shit down the length of the car?

Nvidia GeForce unhelpfully uninstalled its drivers, and the computer broke for twenty minutes. I uninstalled everything with the Nvidia name. Reinstalled. Inexplicably, the eye tracking started working on the third restart.
My real question here is all about the weaponized poop move. Was this like, a go-to move for this guy? It doesn’t really seem like something you’re just going to try for the first time right there in the heat of the moment, right? Did this guy actually consider his options, and made the decision to take a small turd into his own hand, for use in an act of vandalism?
Students can also substitute additional coursework for directed study to make up the credit requirement for the degree, especially as needed based upon their choice of thesis research or to supplement a lack of certain background during undergraduate study.
But if you’re reading Gizmodo you’re still enough of a gadget fan to want to at least understand the $9,555 laptop. To that end, I spent nine days working almost exclusively with Acer’s ode to excess.
Please see specific details for the PhD in Computational Neuroscience on the website as there is additional required coursework for this degree specialization.
