There is a lot of fuss about steroids! Many are proponents of using them right and many say that they can cause roid rage, which presents as agression, unpredictability and backne…almost like being really hungry teenager with a temper. Unfortunately, there isn’t much evidence to show how frequent those effects are or what doses cause them. But the question that a lot of lifters like … Continue reading Powerful Data Part II: How much stronger do steroids really make you?
Powerful Data Project Part I: Getting old? You can still lift! Aging is normal. Unfortunately, it leaves some powerlifters discouraged about their abilities to still lift well and accomplish PRs when they get older. How important is your age when it comes to the amoutn of weight you lift? Should you start focusing more on endurance and give up on lifting good weights once you … Continue reading Part I: Getting old? You can still lift!
The Powerful data project Introductions My name is Elias Oziolor and I am a scientist. Most of the time I study how organisms evolve to resist human derived pollution, but that also entails dealing with a lot of data. The more I do this, the more I realized that I really enjoy playing with data and trying to tease apart the patterns that it is … Continue reading Powerful Data Project Intro
Hi science enthusiasts! In the throws of my postdoctoral fellowship I’ve had little time to write here, but I’ve stumbled upon a necessary occasion – new paper is out! So as some of you might know, my work focuses on understanding rapid adaptation to extreme environments. Part of this work involves understanding how populations adapt by looking at divergent phenotypes, heritability and fitness-costs. Another large … Continue reading Distribution of industrial contamination in a bay system
Hi all, We just published a study in Ecotoxicology that has been ongoing for years. Here we are interested understanding the effect of repeated exposure to contamination during sensitive stages of development during multiple generations. Such exposure could potentially affect the proper development and thus extend to potential population-wide outcomes. In the great lakes we observe this with the exposure and effects of persistent, bioaccumulative … Continue reading New study out – Biomarkers of exposure and effect in tree swallow at areas of concern in the Great Lakes
