Sorry, i have no time at all today. I am a bit stressed while clearing and transferring my diverse accounts at the Cayman and BV islands…and note to my investment adviser, don t forget the one in Luxembourg, might be the next leak. You may have read about this insane coursing the media performs against us, the hard working backbone of the society? In fact the week started quite positive, with the speech and the actions of the prime minister of our hearts Mr Cameron and his finance minister… bedroom tax, great name by the way, of course hard working people don t need a bedroom, we have no time to sleep! And now that…damn, what was the dialing code of Liechtenstein again?
Oh, you don’t have any illegal, tax free wealth somewhere around the planet? Contrary, the tax and the social security contributions you are paying are getting more and more? Well, that can mean only one thing: you are not working hard enough. I guess, you must be one of these parasites that ruin our society!
But, don t get it wrong, in fact it doesn t mean you have to work 70h per week or your work is ruining your health. No, it depends only on WHAT you are doing (and to make it clear, “for the hard working“ all the politicians repeat mantra like is not aimed at a person, it is your money that should work hard). Or can you imagine, a nurse or a kindergarten teacher is paid equally (or more) to an investment manager or high end banker, only because they are working for the society and not against them? Stupid idealist! Then I guess, you are also one of these people who believes Mr Holland is right when he wants to increase the top tax for incomes above one million to 75% trying to let them contribute to the crisis... you have seen the consequence, only one big fat ignorant was escaping from that…to Russia! And now his own minister and his campaign leader demonstrated why no one really cares and showed directly how successful this law will be at the end! Why to be afraid of high taxes if you pay none?
…I don t know about you, but all that makes me very very thirsty. So, if you also trying to forget come to the beer hour at 18h30, 3rd floor of calmette, alcohol will be your friend!
I just received a job offer (immunology / gastroenterology), but as I
already have a nice job, I just forward it to you. Important note: you
have to speak German for it.
Here is the email I received:
I will be intrigued to hear from anyone who may be interested or who
merely would like to talk to me for some more information.
I attach the Job Description for the position along with some
information about the company UCB, a great place to start one’s
scientific career in industry.
The MSL role will be based in Bulle, Switzerland at UCB site for
Bio-tech production. For about 2-5 days per week, you will work in
this site and the rest of the time you will travel to KOL’s, hospitals
etc. to meet with people to discuss medical products and knowledge.
You must be fluent in German, French and English and have some
knowledge of one of the therapeutic areas: immunology or
The Medical Science Liaison (MSL) is a field-based representative of
Medical Affairs who exchanges unbiased scientific and medical
knowledge between the medical community and UCB. In this context, the
MSL must combine excellent scientific knowledge and aptitude with
exceptional communication skills while maintaining the highest ethical
and professional standards.
The levels we are ideally looking for are fluent German (C1/C2),
English very good and French good; level of around B1.
The fluency in French is actually of less importance than the German-
especially if the person has strong knowledge in Chrons Disease/
gastroenterology. Here we can be flexible. So if you think your
contact may be of interest, please still forward them this

Hello friends of fermentation,I am very tired today, because yesterday evening I was forced by I Lassadi…no, no, that is too obvious, let s call her Imen L…so, she was insisting that I have to "write a very funny beer hour letter today". And as I take this kind of pressure very serious, I satid the whole night awake, thinking, writing and correcting, refusing and rewriting …and at the end I had this wonderful, lovely text, the most funny thing I ever wrote…but only to realize that today we can t have a beer hour, it is the “Good Friday” , the most important and holiest day of church. And traditionally during that day it is not allowed to party or to dance…no, even worse, not even to eat or to drink alcohol. And what are we normally doing during the beer hour? well, eating and drinking and laughing and…ok, usualy not dancing. ..and no beer hour means also no beer hour letter…so I trashed my creative outburst...sorrysee you next weektobias
But then I got suspicious. How can it be that those church dignitaries are capable to have no food and no alcohol for a whole day, very unbelievable if you ask me. So I made a little investigation, and what I found out? In fact, in the catholic church,beer is not considered alcohol, not even food, it is more considered like “manna” and therefore very much appreciated, everyday and especially today! And the point emerges, they even go one step further and produce a special pope-beer now a day to highlight the uniqueness and importance of that holy beverage…you don t believe me? then look carefully to these two pictures, prove me wrong and try to spot any differences...impossible, i know
To make a long story short: we have the official blessing from the highest authority for our beer hour today at 18h30 at 3rd floor of calmette…but in contemplation and silence!see you latertobias
We are launching the 2013 international SIGNALIFE PhD Program (see attached poster and website: signalife.unice.fr. The Labex SIGNALIFE is currently seeking applications from outstanding students from around the world for a total of 18 highly competitive, fully funded PhD positions in the area of Cell Signaling in Development, Health and Disease. Our international PhD program will be held entirely in English. This will be the first recruitment for this PhD program, a 3-year PhD fellowship starting September 2013. The application deadline is April 30th.The research teams participating are grouped around five major topics relating to Cell Signalling in Biology: 1) Cellular architecture of signaling pathways, 2) plasticity and signaling, 3) stress signaling, 4) signaling in aging and disease progression, and 5) new principles in signaling and applications. My laboratory has been restructured and together with Fabienne Anjuere, we are focusing our research on immune responses at muco-cutaneous surfaces. We therefore propose to host a PhD to work on the understanding of the fine tune dialog between both the epithelium and the tissue-associated innate immune cells during inflammation and skin carcinoma development.This is a great opportunity to study NK cells and innate immunity.https://www.ipmc.cnrs.fr/cgi-bin/standard.cgi?descriptif=braud_anjuere.txt&dossier1=equipes&dossier2=braud_anjuere&site=inter&menu=1&ssmenu=4&lang=uk Best regards,
