[Xmca-l] FW: mom

Gotta brag about my mom…..she’s among the women-in-science now being recognized retroactively for their contributions to various fields. I never got the STEM gene, and my parents’ involvement in the hard sciences probably makes me different from a lot of my social science colleagues.

Interesting note: one of my meteorology colleagues at Georgia says that “hard sciences” are increasingly social sciences because of the impact of people on nature. Maybe we’re onto something.
