Well, good news and bad news. First the bad news: no one has
volunteered for this week, so there will again be no PopGenLunch
tomorrow (the 18th).


The good news is that we have a speaker next week. Plus two other
slots have been claimed. Here is the schedule. As always this
quarter, sessions will be in S040 Foege (opposite the elevator on the
Ground floor) from 12:30-1:30pm on Wednesdays:
