Y’all heard of angular momentum? Well this is one of my favorite physics demos so let’s break it down.
•
•
•
Angular momentum describes how an object or “system” moves in circular motion, but the point of this demo is to visualize conservation of angular momentum. This is a law stating that when no external torques or forces are applied to a system, it will have no change in angular momentum. This law explains why an ice skater rotates faster as their arms get closer to their body. •
•
•
In the video, me, the wheel and the platform are one “system.” The wheel has some angular momentum when it is handed to me. When I turn the wheel, the platform I’m standing on must rotate in the opposite direction in order to maintain a constant angular momentum. When I flip it in the other direction, I begin to turn the other way because angular momentum has both a magnitude and a direction. (Both must be conserved). And voila, that’s the law in a video. •
•
•
When I was doing a BS in physics, demonstrations were quintessential in helping me visualize physical phenomena. This is one of my favorites because after seeing this, the physics of it became intuitive to me. It was little harder to find demos that explained quantum physics, but there’s a few YouTube videos that do the trick. Lectures never taught me much other than the jargon I needed to use in my google searches. The lab is where things finally clicked, and where I developed a passion for research. To me seeing was believing, but doing was understanding. So if you’re struggling to understand something, find what works best for you. •

What tools do y’all use to better understand concepts you’re unfamiliar with?.

Sectioning the colon Swiss-rolls 🙈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last week, I showed you the first step on how I get those colon Swiss-rolls--by using a toothpick 😅
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀After the tissue gets fixed, the tissue needs to be processed. We used a machine which I call it the carousel 🎠 . This machine has different containers with solvents and solutions that dehydrate and clear the tissue to make it ready for wax infiltration. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀I usually program the machine to run overnight, then I come in the next morning to embed the tissue in wax blocks using another machine. 🤓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After that, comes the step that I'm working on today, tissue sectioning! 😜
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀I am sectioning the tissue in thin sections using a Microtome machine ➡️ swipe to see this machine in use and my happy face 😎. These thin sections are placed on a slide and the final product is the first image. Now, I can use those slides for my immunifluoresce staining that I will do later this week.

P.S: Sectioning has taught me to be patient 😌 because I'm constantly using a brush to get these thin sections. I also like to listen to podcast 🎧 or music 🎶when I do this since it can take hours depending on how many tissue cassettes I have.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What technique in particular has taught you to be patient? 🤔.

Leaving tomorrow for our Apex Predators Field Trip!🐻
.
The last class field trip I went on was for our wildlife techniques course where we focused primarily on trapping and processing small mammals 🐿

This weekend I’ll get to learn all about medium-large sized carnivores! 🦊 I’m immensely grateful for the learning experiences offered to me here at @humboldtstate 🌲

Started off this eventful Friday with a fresh cut 💇🏻‍♀️
I went from 4 hours of lecture to 3 hours of cardiology lab ♥️, to performing my writing for the first time at open mic night 🎤to handling snakes 🐍 and chinchillas at our 4H event. Sneak peek on my story 🥰 gotta love vet school!.

Learning takes time and practice. I’ve always called myself a rookie scientist (lol) cause I’m still learning all the little details. In these past few months I’ve learned and grown so much in my program. Some days are difficult and others easy breezy. But one thing that always gets in the way of my performance is my lack of confidence. That’s why I try to keep positive thoughts and surround myself with positive people 💕🌹. #womeninscience #latinainstem #gradstudent #thesistrack #confidence #keepblooming.

Today I completed my first surgical procedure! I performed an ovariohysterectomy (aka spay) on a wonderful cat patient 🐱It has been the best day of my veterinary education! 📚I came out of it feeling confident in myself and like I’m right where I’m supposed to be. 👩🏻‍⚕️Thank you to my friends and family for all the love today! 💓

THE QUEEN @jedidahislerphd!!! It was such an honor to (co)host her as my department’s (@uciphysastro) last Colloquium Speaker for the academic year. She even lead a special Equity & Inclusion Grad Student Session with us. She is serious goals - bringing the same rigor, vibrant personality and always being true to who she is to her science (blazars) and her activism (making STEM more inclusive and accessible to all). I learned so much from her 2 day visit - I can’t wait to fully digest all the wisdom she shared to start incorporating it into my life. Thank you, Jedidah!!!

Also the color coordination was an actual accident. #GreatMindsThinkAlike 😅

My morning routine 🌞
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I get to campus...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞I leave my stuff in the office, put my lunch 🍛 in the fridge, take out my fruits🍊, water bottle 💦 and then I head to the lab ➡️, which is down the hallway.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞I am a morning person🙆🏽‍♀️ (or that's what I want to believe). I like doing the majority of my active lab work 👩🏽‍🔬 during the morning and spend my afternoon at my desk working on the computer 👩🏽‍💻. Now, that's the ideal escenario but you know in science things sometimes don't work like that 😭, although I always strive to achieve that.😅💪🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞Once I arrive to the lab, I already know what experiments I will be doing. I have been doing a lot of qPCRs lately so in this video I am taking out my samples out to thaw from - 80C. I store the majority of my samples here to keep them stable and avoid degradation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞Then, it is time to check on my babies🔬👶🏽. I usually check if they need to be fed or need to be transfered to a new flask (passaged). I'm currently growing two cell lines, HCT116and MEFs. Both  in vitro models  that will try to include on my dissertation. Have you worked with them before?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞After I do this, I grab my lab notebook and write what I need to do for each flask of babies (otherwise I forget 😵)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞Finally, I warm up the media (baby food), PBS, Trypsin and other solutions that I will need for cell culture in 37C. I warm everything up because the cell lines I am working with like their food warm , otherwise cold media (coming from 4C) will disrupt their environment and cells might even come off (unadhered) from the base where they are growing and we don't want that. Happy babies, hopefully great results. 🤓

1. What are the day-to-day responsibilities of this job?

2. How will my responsibilities and performance be measured? By whom?

3. Could you explain your organizational structure?
