ASM Issue 190 – You Are Your Cover Letter

Cover letters have long been the avenue most people use to send their resume to a prospective employer. Crafting an effective letter for some is easy – but for most, it is a daunting task. There are some key elements that go into an effective letter, which we will discuss. However, before getting started, I believe putting things in perspective seems to help. I like to draw analogies between things we do on a daily basis that could potentially help us accomplish those tasks that come up on an irregular basis.

ASM Issue 191 – Pathogen-based Treatment for Cows with Mastitis?

Mastitis can be caused by an infection where bacteria enters the body through the teat canal. In fact, it is quite common in dairy cows. It may also be caused by mechanical, chemical, or even thermal factors.
