Happy New Year 2009!

Happy New Year 2009!

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Mine is to get my act together and become an active participant again in the discussions surrounding genetics and DNA in society (that means blogging more and working more).

There’s a lot to talk about, of course, starting with Suzie Lee’s assertion that DNA testing for “innate talent” worked for her kid.

It worked for my kid. I think you’re just a sore loser Doc that you couldnt profit from the idea or be seen as the first to market the product successfully.

It could change the world and ensure that all parents discover the strengths in their child and channel it properly resulting in no child feeling that he is in capable or a failure.

Grow Up.. the point is to do whatever we can to make sure our future aka our children have a the brightest possible tomorrow and if that means something like DNA testing then whats wrong.

Maybe you should do proper research (www.23andme.com) and understand what amazing developments are happening.

Fantastic. There’s your New Year’s resolution: Get genetic testing and never be a failure again.

Here’s hoping 2009 isn’t one big FAIL for you. Cheers!

Hsien, I had to laugh at the notion of “Geometry Fail” because when I was in 10th grade I failed the Plane Geometry Regents [a state standardized test]. My teacher worked with me, but somehow I didn’t get it. My mother sent me to my neighbor’s to help me and at last I had an “aha” moment. Some children do not catch on to certain concepts as quickly as others and they are late bloomers. Often late bloomers also go on to surpass others. Guess the genes were there, but it took some time for the development! We also must keep that in mind. ;-)

Glad to see you back in 2009!

I guess similar to you, get more actively blogging. This semester I am on sabbatical working on some biology projects in Second Life so another resolution is to stay focused on that.

Maternity leave! I missed that. See how out of touch I have been? Contratulations!
