In preparation for our most recent meeting, it became clear that several team members had done amazing work deserving of special recognition. We wanted to do something fun and creative, perhaps even start a new tradition. Four times a year Trig team members each take on a special project that we refer to as our “rock” for the quarter, so we decided on a trophy that fit these awards of achievement particularly well.
Each year around Thanksgiving, Dr. Lancefield would spike a batch of eggnog in the lab, and then let it sit there for about a month to be enjoyed around Christmas. Letting that eggnog age in the cold of winter over those weeks between the holidays made it “better” according to her original recipe (below). But maybe what the microbiologist meant was, “better for your health.” So the question is, does spiking the eggnog kill the Salmonella?
If you have ever spent a lengthy amount of time around any child, you've probably heard the question "why" at least once. Maybe even a few times. A few dozen times. A few thousand times. On some occasions they're genuinely curious and on others... they know exactly how to push buttons and you have to learn when to say enough's enough. Ultimately though, kids may have the right idea. We guarantee you aren't asking "why" nearly as often as you could be or should be.
