Panasonic toughbook! You can't go wrong with one of those. I do believe they have just updated their designs to come up with thinner, lighter but still durable laptops. I also believe, they are doing a 3 year replacement on them for 21 years - you get a free one every three years. I was tempted I have to say!

Thread: Presentation Nerves

It's ok to get nervous, the trick is to control your nerves so that it doesn't affect your presentation.

Things that help me:
Practice the talk a few times, check timing etc.
Just before I have to speak, take a loo break. It's best to lock yourself into a cubicle - shake out the excess energy by wiggling around - it really works!

I tend to find that I'm nervous just before I go up but as long as I have a good opening sentence, e.g "Before I start I would just like to thank the organisers for giving me the opportunity to speak today. I want to talk to you about blah blah blah blah". After that, I feel really confident and my nerves disappear.

You need to try and look at it from her point of view: She's using her own money for materials etc (I'm guessing) and can't afford to cough up much more and therefore the only way of making sure it gets done properly, is to do it herself. She's obviously realised this after you made a couple of errors.

Of course people make mistakes but this is obviously a situation where she can't afford mistakes.

It sounds like you are a good student otherwise she wouldn't have bothered asking you in the first place but I think you possibly are wasting your time waiting for her to get some funding. Try looking for lab technician type jobs whilst waiting for a phd position to come up? Or something similar.

This is PRIMARILY a UK based forum, there are a few students from abroad who post here but most are looking at studying in the UK. If there are so many US-based forum members, how come her question hasn't been answered yet?

I'm not saying that non-UKers shouldn't post but you obviously aren't going to get as much help asking about non-UK universities.

If you want to include graphs from textbooks etc, you normally modify it slighty (like you have) and then say "modified from Smith et al. (1978)" or however you reference.

Anyone that can see this whole thing through with you and is still speaking to you afterwards must be a very nice person indeed! :-)



I know, he's put up with so much over the last few months - mood swings, a fatter and progressively more unattractive wife, me screaming at him "if you don't like it we can get a divorce" etc.

To be honest, if it was the other way around, I don't think I would hack it. I feel like I'm being a proper monster to him but I definitely got better when I started my new job.

...or when you think you've lost your favourite mug because you've not seen it for a few days, then find it tucked in a corner on the floor by the front door, half full of coffee that's been growing furry mould since the postman called the other day....
