New Job

Spent the morning doing phone interviews for our new biological anthropology position. Some were very good, some not so much. I guess that's par for the course. It is nice to see some excellent candidates on the list, it's going to be a hard decision I think...

ANTARCTICA FUN FACTS -- Penguins are widely distributed throughout the Southern Hemisphere – Africa, the Galapagos Islands, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and yes, Antarctica. The name originally meant 'fat one' in spanish/portuguese, and may come from either the Welsh 'pen gwyn' (white head), from the Latin 'pinguis' (fat) or from a corruption of 'pin-wing' (pinioned wings). Many parts of Antarctica have never been explored, so the precise number of penguins is unknown. The earliest known fossils of penguins were found in Peru.(Source: Beyond Penguins & Polar Bears and The Penguins FAQ)

Hi Sue! Thanks for linking to our site (Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears). Did Jaime tell you about it or did you just stumble across it?

Sue said...

Jaime told me about it! Small world. It's a great site, I really enjoyed going thru it.

If there's anything I can do while down there, let me know. Any special pictures?? A penguin feather (actually, I think that's illegal)? But I'm sure my boots will have plenty of penguin poop if that'll do ;-)

If you don't mind sharing pictures with the world, that would be wonderful! I'll look at my production schedule and let you know if there's anything in particular. Thanks!

Sue said...

No problem. Send me "on assignment." I'll 'embed' myself with the penguins ;-)
