    Okay, thank you! I’m assuming it’s the Dickinson Classroom 371 (where seminars are held?) and goes until 10:30? (Sorry if we totally talked about this and I missed it!) Do we need a final headcount by a certain time?

    Hey Everyone,

    I can send out an email to the FLMNH student listserv, but wanted to check on some details…

    I see this from Jeanette’s message below:

    Feb 20 (9:35-10:25a; FOSSIL meeting scheduled at 11a): CV/Resume Workshop Presented by the Career Center, to be arranged by @molly-selba

    And just to confirm, we are still meeting in Carr 521? We are only inviting 10 additional people (besides us) so we’ll need people to reply and confirm that they will be attending? People should bring their CV/Resume digitally, printed, or both? And, am I missing any other important details?

    ** Below is the email I’m planning to send – does all sound right?
    Hi Everyone,

    You are invited to attend a CV/resume building workshop presented by the Career Resource Center and hosted by the MacFadden lab group. A representative from the CRC will provide a short presentation and then open the floor for general or more specific CV/resume questions. Feel free to bring a laptop with a digital version of your CV/resume or a paper copy (or both). It’s also okay if you do not have a CV/resume prepared yet and want to join for some tips and advice.

    Date: Wednesday, February 20th

    Time: 9:35 am – 10:25 am

    Location: Carr 521

    Please reply to confirm if you plan to attend by 5 pm. Tuesday, Feb. 19. Space is limited.

    Let me know if you have questions!​

    – Rachel

    • It is actually being held in Dickinson… Here are the details:
      Topic: CV, Teaching Statement and Research Statement
      Phone Number: 941-773-9888
      Email: [email protected]
      Location: Dickinson 371
      Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2019
      Time: 9:30 AM
      Expected Number of Attendees: 20

      You can come with your CV and specific questions if you want, but usually they come with slides so you don’t need to bring your own CV if you don’t want to.

    I could totally give a talk about this with museum and Haile 7G ‘Tapir Challenge’ fossil dig participants, but I’m doubting I can make it to NAPC =/ If anyone wants to focus on Montbrook amateurs I can provide a ton of images!

    Also, how should we go about the chat/how many students? Should we all do a one on one interaction? Have something prepared to discuss/show or will they probably just have lots of questions?

    • I can’t speak to the number of students, last Adania said they hadn’t gotten a final count yet. I’m fine with whatever seems easiest. I don’t think we need to formally prepare anything. They have a formal panel the following day with grad students (?) so this would be a more informal setting for them to ask more targeted questions. I think it could be beneficial for the students if we have some background on our personal journey – opportunities, successes, failures, roadblocks – but this could naturally come up during the conversation rather than each of us rattling off bits about ourselves.

    I’m no longer officially signed up, but would still like to join if that’s okay? I could meet anytime Wednesdays except ~1 – 1:30 pm.

    Probably by 11. We can ask Art if any other stops are planned and maybe see what the plan is for allowing the matrix to dry.

    • I just checked with Art and he said before 11, no extra stops except for gas on the way back. The more people that goes and helps collect, the faster we can get 10 bags. Depending on how many can help, there is a chance to comeback earlier than 11.

    Also, here is the link to begin setting up your UF Dropbox. There is a short training session with 3 questions at the end. https://cloud.it.ufl.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/How-to-Obtain-Access-to-UF-Dropbox-for-Education.pdf

    Rachel Narducci replied to the topic Tortoise Shell Fragment in the forum What Is It?

    I honestly do not know how to ID these, so you might want to disregard my response, but it kind of resembles Cheloniidae to me. Of course, it could also just be a very thick piece of Hesperotestudo plastron…

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to let you know, each UF grad student can get 1 TB of storage space on UF Dropbox for free.

    I heard about it from Dave Blackburn and am not completely sure how it works, but Jon sent an email to Chris Pickles asking for students (email addresses cc’d) to be granted access to UF Dropbox. Chris is working on it and sent the request to the DSA of our academic units (biology – Lisa Johnson and geology – Kristin Nichola).

    We’re waiting for these to be set up, but it worked for D. Blackburn’s students, and I thought I’d pass along the info!

  • Hello,

    I believe these are angulosplenials of Anurans. I’m not sure how to narrow down to genus level or even whether it’s from a frog or toad though.
