Bienvenidas Gaby y Salomé! / Welcome Gaby and Salomé

Hace aproximadamente un mes se integraron las doctoras Salomé Cabrera Romo y Gabriela García Marmolejo, quienes participarán en el proyecto “Estudio de la fauna silvestre en sistemas socioecologicos para mitigar brotes epidémicos zoonoticos”, a cargo de un servidor y dentro del grupo académico Ecología para la Conservación de la Fauna Silvestre del Departamento de Conservación de la Biodiversidad de Ecosur Campeche.

Salomé (abajo) es doctora en infectómica y patogénesis molecular por el CINVESTAV, Maestra en ciencias por la UNAM y Médico Veterinario también por la FMVZ-UNAM.


Mientras que Gaby (abajo) es Doctora en Ciencias Ambientales por el IPICYT, Maestra en Ciencias por el Ecosur-Campeche y bióloga por la UNAM-Facultad de Ciencias.



Ambas se integran como parte del programa de jovenes investigadores por cátedras de CONACYT comisionadas a Ecosur-Campeche bajo mi supervisión, proyecto que me fue aprobado este año por el CONACYT.

Con la llegada de Gaby y Salome se forma oficialmente el Grupo de Investigación en Ecología de Enfermedades al interior del Ecosur y vendran muchos nuevos proyectos, cursos, estudiantes y actividades conjuntas y como grupo como resultado de ello.

Bienvenidas Gaby y Salomé!


Tambien hay una nota sobre el tema en la página de Ecosur (abajo):

NO estoy aceptando más estudiantes hasta 2018 / NOT accepting new aplications for postgrad students until 2018

Debido a que tengo 4 nuevos estudiantes de posgrado en Ecosur y 3 en la UNAM, y esto es cerca de el límite de mis capacidades académicas, me temo que no puedo aceptar más estudiantes hasta nuevo aviso en el 2018. Mi prioridad es graduar a los estudiantes actuales y después tomar un año sabático fuera del país a principios del 2018 cuando todos estos estudiantes se hayan graduado.

Aquellas y aquellos que estén interesados, pueden escribirme desde ahora para iniciar contacto, pero para aplicar a las convocatorias 2018-2019 (tanto en ECOSUR como en la UNAM). Daré prioridad a estudiantes de Doctorado desde ahora, sin embrago los estudiantes de maestría que deseen aplicar podrían hacerlo bajo la dirección de tesis de las Drs. Gabriela García-Marmolejo o de la Dra. Salomé Cabrera Romo del recientemente creado Grupo de Ecología de Enfermedades de Ecosur (y jóvenes investigadoras de Cátedras Patrimoniales Conacyt comisionadas a Ecosur-Campeche bajo mi supervisión académica) y yo podría formar parte de sus comités tutorales.

Mis mejores deseos!
_____________________

Due to almost full capacity (currently 4 new postgrad students in Ecosur and 3 in UNAM) I am affraid that I cannot longer accept new applications for new posgrad students untill new notice due 2018. My priority would be to graduate these students and then go for my sabbatical year abroad starting 2018.

Those that might be interested, can write to me to start contacting, but should know that all applications would be to start in 2018 or 2019 (both for ECOSUR and UNAM). I will be giving priority to Doctoral student applications from now on, yet students interested in Masters degrees are welcome to apply under Dr. Gabriela García-Marmolejo or Dr. Salomé Cabrera Romo, from the recently formed Ecosur-Disease Ecology Research Group as their main supervisor and with me in their academic committees.

All the best!

Good morning America!

My two cents on Trump, the USA election, the American Society and the crazy world we live in today

After the Washington Post released the disgusting audio yesterday with obscene remarks on woman by Donald Trump, many people was shocked. I was too, very much, but not as much as to see that EVEN after that audio was open to the public to discern the kind of person Trump really is, the polls still set Trump very close to Clinton to win the USA election. That is even more shocking to me, because it shows that Trump supporters (and that is at least 4 of every 10 Americans today, perhaps even more after November-hopefully not) support Trump DESPITE his clearly mesogynist, racist, discriminant and repugnant remarks. THAT is THE true shocking part to me: The state where American society stands today. I know, not all society, perhaps just the White-Supremacist part of it, but yet 4 of every 10 Americans anyway. The thought of it is really scary, if you think deeply about it. Very, very disturbing...and may be even more repugnant than Trump's recent words on woman. It is very clear the World is changing in sooo many ways very fast and that it is a crazy, crazy World we live in today.  It is up to us (well in this case to USA citizens, to go the "crazy way" or to get back to being a bit more human. ¿Or...perhaps Trump is "too human" and he is just showing the real nature of "some" US citizens and the way they want it to be?.

So, we all know now who Trump is, right?. In Robert De Niro's words (watch video below) he is a punk, a dog, a pig, an idiot. Well, in about one month the World will know the truth about USA, the truth about their society and the true nature of their people. Time will tell who they really are. And the voters and election results will tell.

Or in other, plain words: Trump only wants to become president, so he can change the laws and legally commit incest with his daughter.
