Paper rejected, Cheer Up with Baby Animals

Too bad for me, my first global health paper will have to be revised and resubmitted. In addition to some more substantive objections, the negative reviewer said “It is unclear what software was used to carry out the Bayesian estimation by MCMC. This is not possible in STATA and would be extremely difficult in the scripting language, Python.” It was difficult in Python! I doubt that any software would make it much easier, though.

To cheer myself up, I’ve been looking into the newest fads in pets: robotic hamsters and teacup pigs.

    What a funny thing, it was like reading a post of mine. It was the same answer for me today with my first paper: review it and resubmit it.
