CCL: 8th French-Japanese Workshop on Computational Methods in Chemistry



CCL members,
 We should appreciate the great holiday gift bequeathed to us, the rare
 appearance of Jim Kress. It is a holiday of macabre origins, not unlike a
 bizarro Groundhog Day.
 In fact, his presence here is somewhat like a time-stretched Punxsutawney
 Phil; when he pops his head out of his hole on (thankfully) increasingly
 rare occasions and casts his shadow on our e-mail inboxes, it means we need
 to spend another 6 years fighting for gender equity in our community.
 With regards,
 Nathan Seifert
