Marching On

Too long since my last post!  Since which I have:

* noticed a new flare star in Bootes (of which more anon)

* worked with undergrad students Erik Weiss and Amanda DeSouza on using current observations of accretion disk sizes as a function of wavelength to constrain their temperature profiles, and thought with grad student Laura Chajet about what might produce such profiles

* plugged away on the referee report for my paper on redshifted-trough BAL quasars (so close...)

* prepared observation templates for the Gemini 8-meter telescopes, did quick-look reductions on some spectra, and helped grad student Jesse Rogerson get started on real reductions

* taught astronomy

* helped write proposals for the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray observatory

* started thinking about proposals for Gemini and the 3.6-meter Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope

Back to work...
