A personal story of how life’s setbacks helped me discover myself!

I recently felt inspired by a video from Michael Phelps, where he talked about his struggles with depression and anxiety. It was interesting that someone whom the world considers immensely successful and seemingly having his life together is an actual human being who experiences similar issues to many other people. His story is very relevant to my life, as someone who recently experienced a rather drastic life transition. It broke me down to a level that I didn’t know was possible, but it’s also building me back up now into a person who is stronger and more authentic than ever. This personal story tells how setbacks can help you discover yourself, and how they don’t have to define you, but can be used as fuel to improve and to help others along the way.

Meet Sam Athey, an environmental chemist studying microfiber pollution!

Sam Athey is currently a PhD student at the University of Toronto with a focus in environmental chemistry. She studies the sources and solutions to microplastic and chemical pollution. Sam earned her MSc and BSc with honors in marine science from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where she conducted research on the impacts of plastic pollution in marine and estuarine ecosystems. Sam is currently a member of the U of T Trash Team, where she spends her free time cleaning up local shorelines and participating in community outreach.

Professor Lubetzki, seminal in her field

Professor Catherine Lubetzki picks up the mantle for prestigious MS Charcot Award!

Professor Lubetzki is professor of Neurology at Pierre and Marie Curie University and head of the department of neurological diseases in Salpêtrière Hospital. She coordinates the Salpêtrière Multiple Sclerosis clinical research centre. Her research focuses on the pathophysiology of MS, notably uncovering the interactions between myelin and axons, showing that the electrical activity of axons induces myelin formation, and that positive or negative axonal signalling can impact the repair mechanism.

Particle physicists want to prove the existence of the hypothetical Axion-like particles that might be constituents of the mysterious dark matter but haven´t been seen so far.

Scientists are Conducting Fundamental Research With ‘Speed Machines’!

Particle physicists claim they understand the universe, but the complexity of this surprising paradox behind our universe reveals to us that still 95 percent of the universe is yet not understood nor has it been seen directly. Mind dazzling indeed but if our universe would not contain e.g. entropy, wiggling particles possessing their own “wiggle-room” so to speak and slow, non-excited, as they seem to be, “hippy particles” as some of its fundamental components, we would not have the complex world we see today, including you and me.
