"I'm currently working on a number of papers including one on female genital schistosomiasis as a risk factor for HIV infection, one on the statistically validity of a popular discriminant function program in forensic anthropology and one on whether human hairlessness is an adaptation or an exaptation and just what one would have to prove to come to a solid conclusion on that question. Hopefully, I will finish all of them by May 5th so that I'm finished with the semester before I leave for my DNA training in Canada. I don't have much in the way of plans for the rest of the summer, but I have heardstirrings that one of my friends may know someone looking for someone with osteological knowledge to help out on an archaeological dig in South America somewhere. We shall see if that works out."
