Wow this post has been a long time coming as I haven't really had any updates since the end of last year even though there has been a lot to talk about. Tonight is actually one of the freer nights that I've had since we've been back. I didn't think that "Senior Year" was supposed to be so busy. Well I finally had knee surgery during the end of August, getting a full reconstruction of my right ACL. I am 10 weeks post-surgery and am feeling really fantastic (almost too fantastic). I am in rehab twice a week and my strength is finally starting to come back.

This week was the 2nd to last week of school at SOM and things are still not slowing down. On Tuesday we were fortunate enough to have Gary Loveman, the Chairman, President and CEO of Harrah’s Entertainment, the gaming entity that is being taken private by TPG and the Apollo Group. I may be a little biased since the gaming industry intrigues me, but I thought he was a fantastic speaker and I really enjoyed the thoughts he shared with us on the gaming industry and the public-to-private transition that his company is just completing. Every person that I talked to that attended Dr.

Well the lack of blog entries on my part has been due to the fact that I managed to blow up not one, but TWO computers that I own last Monday. I think that takes some sort of talent, which I don't think employers would necessarily hire me for. I started with my laptop (which has since been fixed), then I moved onto my desktop, which unfortunately appears to be toast. I was waiting for that to happen so it looks like I'll be in the market for a new Dell. Last week I also found out the results for the Student Government elections that were completed the preceding week.

Next to the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, Masters’ week has to be my favorite week of the year. The tournament signals the unofficial beginning of spring and I can start to hear my golf clubs calling me. I’m not really big on the splendor of sights and things like that, but watching The Masters on TV (especially HDTV) is such an experience. I haven’t had the privilege of attending the event live, but my father has gone a couple of times and he says that TV doesn’t do the course justice. I can’t wait for Thursday!!

Well today was the first day of the new Integrated Leadership Perspective, a three-hour class that seeks to bring together all that we have learned in our perspectives classes. I was kinda skeptical going into the class on how it would run, but if the first class is any indication, I think it's gonna be a great 7 weeks. The class is lead by Dr. Sharon Oster, who in my opinion is one of the best professors at SOM. She keeps the class engaged throughout, whether it is an 80- or 180-minute class.

My name is Brian and I am a first year here at Yale. A little about me: I grew up right down the road from Yale, in Trumbull, CT, but spent the last 10 years in the greater Philadelphia area. I am a proud alum of Villanova (GO CATS!!) and worked at Merck for 6 years before coming to Yale. I was an analytical chemist working in the pre-clinical development area. It was a good learning experience and it definitely allows me to bring something different to class discussions since I am the only practicing scientist in my cohort.
