Paleontology: A New Way to Study Fossils

By Damien Knight

The traditional study of morphology in paleontology is changing with the use of X-ray and tomography technologies. X-ray Computer Tomography (CT) Scanners and other X-ray techniques are aiding our understanding of fossils in greater detail. Traditional paleontology required digging fossils from their matrix which destroyed the samples to study them. New technology can penetrate dense rocks with resolution in the microns.

Something You look Forward To

By Damien Knight

My writing prompt today is “What do you look forward to every week?” The thing I look forward to is my meetings with Dr. Wulff. He is my professor in mineralogy. He is a quality professor and I feel I have improved so much taking his class. I have made a lot of progress in my studies because of these meetings. I thought I would only be progressing in Mineralogy but I have found that it has helped my study habits entirely.

School Started Last Week

Written by Damien Knight
on 6/14/12
So last week the summer semester started. I had taken spring semester as a break from classes, so I was a bit rusty. So much so I forgot the semester started last week and not this week. Oops, my bad. Anyway, been catching up as much as I can. Philosophy class is awesome but Spanish sucks big time.

Why does Spanish suck? Well, it’s just not challenging enough. I am a week late, yet I did a whole week of class work in one day. I mean really it shouldn’t be so easy. I been told to just go with it.

I can’t wait till fall classes. I will take classes concerning my major in the fall. I am a Biology Major at a community college. I absolutely love doing biology but to be honest I can’t wait till I graduate and move to a university that way I can do what I love: Geology.

I have always wanted to be a Palaeontologist and I am hoping a Geology Major with a Biology Minor will get me closer.

Anyway, I hope to write many awesome things in this blog about various topics for now.

Update Note: I wrote this in a blog I originally had on blogger. It was called Into the Shadow’s View. I forgot I even had a Blogger. It now is a new extension of this blog called “The Shade of Writing on Blogger”. I doubt I will post stuff there often but it makes it easier I think for me to comment on blogs ran on Blogger.

As for this post I am now at University studying Geology. I ended up dropping my minor. It was better just to focus on my major. With that I would like to remind everyone that this semester I have a research trip to the Mojave. If you wish to help fund that please click the donate button for it below. Thanks.
