Enough doom and gloom - I thought my first post as a Hand-Mirrorista should be up-beat. As an ancient 70s feminist I always get a real buzz from stories like the one in today's Dom-Post about Dr Vickie Shim.
She's just beaten 600 other people from around the world to take out the Young Investigator Award from the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering. She did it by creating a computer model of the human knee - the most complex and most injured joint in the body - to "predict what's happening inside without having to cut it open".
When I left school you didn't see stories like this. Ever. So I read this and I think "Young woman. Brilliant bioengineer. You go, girl!"
On the other hand... the same rugby game playing at the same time on no less than three TV channels???
