This article was posted by Emily Keefe former student of the MSc Biological Photography and Imaging, good spot or strip I am not sure.

The owner of a New Zealand pet grooming business has transformed her dog into a tiger to show off her skills. Jody Woodhouse dyed the coat of her three-year-old Australian labaradoodle Celebrity Woodhouse orange with black stripes. Ms Woodhouse said: “We wanted to do something that would make people smile and this is something completely out of the hat. “This is such a nice way to make people smile and give them something to talk about.” Celebrity Woodhouse is Jody’s pet and travels to work in Tauranga, on North Island, each day with her.Ms Woodhouse used an imported Japanese dye for the procedure which she insists is 100 per cent safe. She added: “I’m absolutely astounded with the feedback, it’s been mostly positive but a few people didn’t understand why we did it, but once we explained it’s a harmless procedure that’s all in the name of fun, they seemed to enjoy it”. The dye job is expected to last a few months, until Celebrity Woodhouse is next clipped.

Although emasculated spiders can no longer be lovers, they are better fighters, a new study says.

In many spider species, males have sex using two appendages known as pedipalps. But males will often lose one or both pedipalps during the act—behavior that might seem like a bad idea evolutionarily, since it renders the male sterile.

I have just started working as a Media Specialist for Carl Zeiss Microimaging GmbH in Jena, Germany. Some of my projects so far include:

Designing interactive e-brochures (with embedded animations, 360 views of microscopy systems etc) to sales people and customers showing the range of systems and software. As well as the design I am also working on how best to distribute these globally for download on tablet devices, emails etc…

Image optimisation for web and print, image retouching (products as well as micrographs) graphic design and simple animations. I can also use the confocal laser scanning systems (for which I have had some very intensive training!) to obtain images for use in my work but I also help to improve existing images currently in our internal database.

I also help with the social media side of things with the web team in Munich. We recently launched the Carl Zeiss Microscopy facebook page (please go have a look and click “like” if you like! http://www.facebook.com/zeissmicroscopy).

I am loving the work so far and the move to Deutschland has gone pretty smoothly. I could not have got this job without having done the MSc Biological Photography and Imaging course…
