Britain has said no to the European Union. This is an outcome of the referendum I neither expected nor hoped for – an opinion I probably share with a fair share of Europeans. Possible consequences of the Brexit have been discussed for months – something that is also important in the international chemical industry.
I would like to join my colleague Vanessa Bauersachs who showed her delight about some positive news that stick out of all those recent shocking reports (see her blog post of 26 May). I have also come across something delightful: three junior researchers from Germany have received a renowned award for the development of a biodegradable gelatine-based adhesive.
I don’t have an e-book reader. Why? Because they are only available in black and white, and the screen is too small for my liking. So, I diligently buy printed books, even though my bookshelves are bursting at the seams. But my attitude towards e-readers might change very soon.
