Strategic CSR - Microbes

This is the last CSR Newsletter of the Fall semester.
Happy Holidays and I will see you in the New Year!
The website in the url below offers some gift options for the upcoming holiday season. These gifts are for the people in your life who are more scientifically-minded—or, at least, who like the idea of stuffed toy replicas of giant microbes—"a million times actual size!"
There are microbes of the "cells and body" (e.g., brain cells, antibodies, and plasma), there is a section on "family health" (e.g., chicken pox, ear wax, and diarrhea), and "wildlife" (e.g., dust mites and "brain eating amoeba"). I think one of the best ranges is the "diseases," which includes a "nasty germs" list (e.g., listeria and Lyme's disease), as well as "exotics" (e.g., anthrax and gangrene), and "plagues" (e.g., cholera and Ebola). According to the "New & Popular" section, one of their best sellers is the kidney stone—here it is, in case you were wondering what it looks like:
They're great. I particularly like the flesh-eating diseases page:
Happy Holidays!
