Oh, Right. I have a blog.
So here's the e-mail I got from my chair this morning:
"I write to inquire if any of you have a need for a small grant (~ less than $400 or so) for either travel (must be complete by 5/15), equipment, or research requirements (ie, indexing, translation, student assistance)?"
I asked for an exorcist for my printer, which eats paper, but only when I'm rushing to print something out in the five minutes before class.
Two hours later, I receive the following e-mail from the College of Liberal Arts' research liason:
"The Chancellor’s Office has asked our University to complete a survey regarding the use of aircraft or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) by any of our research programs. If you are using any type of aircraft or UAV in your research, please e-mail B-- N--."
I'm pretty sure I need to put in another funding request with my chair. There has got to be a way I can incorporate an unmanned drone into my research, right?
