SURGE (Stimulating Undergraduate Research and Growth through community Engagement) challenges undergraduate students enrolled in any McMaster Faculty to participate in a research seminar series run by McMaster students who have research experience in a variety of disciplines. Throughout the year, interdisciplinary seminar speakers will present their research experiences and run workshops with SURGE members that aim to improve the exposure to research conducted at McMaster and create a more accessible environment for undergraduate research engagement.
Trolling a mosquito.⠀
When a mosquito bite breaks the skin, a person's body recognizes the mosquito's saliva as a foreign substance. This causes an immune system response, which aims to flush out the intruder.⠀
The swelling around the bite is caused by histamine, which is produced by the immune system.⠀
Histamine increases blood flow and white blood cell count around the affected area, which causes inflammation or swelling.⠀
Mosquito bites itch because histamine also sends a signal to the nerves around the bite.⠀

#superbaca2 ~ Saat baru menetas flamingo tidak berwarna pink. Bayi flamingo memiliki bulu dengan warna putih keabu-abuan. Ketika beranjak dewasa warna bulu mereka perlahan berubah menjadi pink. Hal tersebut dikarenakan adanya canthaxanthin dalam udang dan ganggang yang mereka konsumsi. Canthaxanthin berperan sebagai pewarna alami berwarna merah muda atau pink yang perlahan merubah warna bulu pada flamingo.

We closely collaborated and designed this small event and it wouldn’t have been possible without the kind support of the DNP Foundation for Cultural Promotion.
The evening will consist of a talk and small exhibition of the IDEA Magazine's popular series on graphic designers in Asia region called "Yellow Pages." The main authors/designers Tetsuya Goto (OOO Projects, Osaka), @s.min.choi (@sulki_and_min , South Korea), @ingooffermanns (Hamburg) and @saki.ps.ho (Hong Kong) will give a talk about their activities and emerging graphic designers in East Asia region.
The Small exhibition will feature works from @nananananananakim (Seoul), @aaronnieh (Taipei) and others, including new works and works showed in earlier edition of Yellow Pages in Kyoto, ddd galley.
Back home after a great week in Philadelphia at #ASRM2019 . It was a week full of learning, inspiration, innovation, and catching up with friends old and new.
I had an oral presentation and a poster! I was definitely nervous but it was so fun to get to share the research that Kurt and I have been working on together!! An overlap of pediatric cardiology and IVF!! 👶🏼❤️ #thedoctorsbjorkman .
“Regular exercise is cross-sectionally associated with lower neuroticism, anxiety and depression and higher extraversion and sensation seeking in the population” (De Moore et al., 2006).
When working out, your brain increases its endorphins, norepinephrine, and serotonin. These neurotransmitters send messages to the nervous system that basically reinforce feelings of positivity and happiness. Our bodies are so cool!⠀
The recommendation of exercise is 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week. Find your sweet spot! Maybe you function best at 75 minutes a week or 200 minutes a week! ⠀
Also, don’t force yourself to do a workout you don’t enjoy. You want to associate exercise with something you enjoy. It’s all about building mental stamina. For example, I DO NOT like to run for exercise, so I don’t 😂 but I do enjoy group workouts like Pure Barre and that’s what the majority of my workouts revolve around. ⠀
Be patient with yourself. There are some weeks that I don’t exercise at all. Listen to your body and you will eventually learn what it needs ✨
The fifth married couple that jointly have been awarded a Nobel Prize or Prize in Economic Sciences: Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee.
This picture of them outside their home in Boston, MA, USA, was taken on 14 October after the announcement of the 2019 Prize in Economic Sciences.
Together with Michael Kremer, they have developed a new approach to alleviating global poverty. The laureates have shown how the problem of global poverty can be tackled by breaking it down into a number of smaller – but more precise – questions at individual or group levels.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to William Kaelin (pictured), Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg Semenza for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability.
Oxygen sensing is central to a large number of diseases. The discoveries made by the 2019 Nobel Laureates have fundamental importance for physiology and have paved the way for promising new strategies to fight anaemia, cancer and many other diseases.
I’m a big advocate of researching and digging deep. Pretty much everything I’ve learned til this point is all because I spent that extra hour or so researching and putting in the work that people normally wouldn’t do. Do things that other people aren’t doing. It will give you a huge advantage.
Double tap if you agree!

@wildbirdresearch is back at it for two nights of #Owl Research. Fingers crossed that this week has pushed the migration further south. Last week, we had our first Northern Saw-whet Owl, only one for the two days, but hopefully tonight, it'll pick up steam. Tomorrow we're heading to do some survey work with our newest research site with the @nature_nj, stay tuned for more and head to @wildbirdresearch to see more owl research.

👬The only person I’ll ever share my chocolate with 😘 #ad#truelove I posted an IG story awhile ago thanking a subscriber of ours, Abbey from Germany, for sending me Kinder Bueno because these are seriously my FAVORITE. Fast forward a few months, and we’re now partnering with them as they expand in the US! #TeamKinderBueno 🙌 Mike tried it for the first time this week, and we already asked for them to send us more cause like #research 😂 SO good. Smooth milk chocolate, a crispy wafer, and a creamy hazelnut filling.🤤 Thank you @KinderBuenoUS for choosing us to be a part of this launch!! #BeyondExpectation#FirstTaste#KinderBuenoUS
