I understand some of y’all local to Volusia County / Daytona Beach want to get together. Feel free to use this comment thread to set up a place and date. Hopefully, I can attend provided nothing blows up at work.

Now this sounds like one very interesting profile of a local scientist:
She is a rock performer, a songwriter, a teacher and a scientist. At 32, Pardis Sabeti, who grew up in Orlando, leads a fascinating life.
PBS’ Nova scienceNow profiles geneticist Sabeti at 9 tonight on WMFE-Channel 24. Her parents fled the Iranian revolution and lived around the United States before settling in Orlando, where they still live. She decided to study medicine after her father was in a serious car accident.
Sabeti graduated from MIT and earned her graduate degree from Harvard. She made a major breakthrough in explaining how advantageous mutations spread in natural selection. These days, she is seeking answers in the fight against malaria.
