PHL 1811 analogs, Thesis, Postdoc

For the PHL 1811 analog paper: replaced a file; analyzed an HST spectrum; reconsidered a redshift; added a sentence on testing a speculative explanation.

Read and commented on Jiang & Goodman's arXiv:1011.3541 paper on star formation in quasar accretion disks (well written, but a modest step forward, not a great leap).

Rogerson Master's Thesis delivered to supervising committee; Skype conversation with Jesse mapping out refinements to the analysis to tackle next.

Budgeted for postdoc and other research expenses over the next few years, and wrote email answering queries about my offer to my first-choice postdoc applicant.
