23.1: Feature Investigation: The Grants Have Observed Natural Selection in Galapagos Finches


Section I: Personal Bio and Material


Hey there my name is Peter Falk, I am 16 years old and I currently live in Franklin Township, NJ (born in West Palm Beach, FLA though). In my free time, I enjoy long walks on the beach, candle-lit dinners and watching the sunset from a picturesque grassy knoll. Also, I am a big movie and TV buff, and some of my favorites include Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, The Mole, Arrested Development, Weeds, Freaks and Geeks, Dexter, and It's always Sunny in Philadelphia. In my free time, I also enjoy reading, listening to music, hanging out with friends and practicing bass guitar.  A few of the extra-curricular activities I am really passionate about are Quiz Bowl and Model United Nations. If everything goes according to plan, I will be playing Bass Guitar for Cosmic Wolves at the Super Bowl halftime show. However, if that doesn't work out I plan to get a bachelors in business/economics/political science, and then get a law degree which I will use in my career as a sports agent. If possible, I would like to spend a year abroad, or go to a foreign university (i.e. London School of Economics).

Hey Dr. Weber. I figured out how to embed video, still haven't figured out the pictures yet. How do you embed pictures?
