Hello Biosciences:

As SBSA transitions to a great new leadership team, and in the spirit of holding your representatives accountable, I would like to provide a summary of SBSA's past year and some thoughts on future directions and improvements.

The letter to the community can be found at http://med.stanford.edu/content/dam/sm/sbsa/letters/State_of_SBSA_2017.pdf.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please let SBSA know. I look forward to seeing SBSA's incoming team take SBSA to the next level!

Best,

Biafra Ahanonu

SBSA President

review of mad max: fury road
02 june 2015 | movies

A gorgeously shot film that is hampered by a spartan story that never really goes anywhere and action that becomes repetitive by the end of[...] the first act.

the evolving style
29 march 2012 | design

This website was built from scratch using only Notepad. While it would have been easier to create the site in Dreamweaver or another pr[...]ogram and then upload it, I wanted to learn first-hand about the steps involved in web development. The site has allowed me to hone my design skills, both aesthetically and organizationally. This is an essay detailing the evolution of the website.

This was an internal document for me to keep track of what I was changing and why, but decided to reword it and make it an article. Hope you like it.

bio42: notes
12 may 2013 | teaching

<p>While teaching bio42 (cell biology and animal physiology) I created weekly notes to help students in my section study [...]and focus on the important materials presented in the class. I built off of the latex boilerplate that I have been improving over time to create weekly notes. This highlights why I love <a href='http://www.latex-project.org/' target='_blank'>LaTeX</a> so much, especially for larger projects that are heavily linked&mdash;it allows easy annotation, indexing, creation of new document styles, and other related processes rapidly and consistently. Plus, separating content and style is always a plus and images stay uncoupled from a propriety source (e.g. Word files). </p> <p>I really love the resulting notes and student feedback was quite positive. I thought sharing them might be useful for others in the future. The source latex files and raw images can be sent upon request (I'm considering making a Github repository in the future). I'll briefly talk about the document below and certain decisions that were made to get it to its current state. </p>
