    Well if no one else attends – Marc Bean should definitely be in attendance and listen very intently.

  2. Ironic says:

    Funny that a lecture on progress has an admission price that discriminates against all the PLP members crying poor at the moment.

    Has there been a misprint…

    “Subsequently, he attended the University of the West Indies [Mona Campus, Jamaica], where he completed two years of field research in Marine Ecology, working towards a Masters of Philosophy degree.”

    If he was doing a masters in Philosophy what is the relevance of the Marine Ecology, i.e. did he not complete his Masters and switch into research?
    It’s a bit confusing, perhaps his credentials could be either worded differently or stated separately. We don’t want to take away from what he has achieved.

    • watching says:

      Perhaps he stopped that program for various reason, possibly financial, and then continued his education later.

    Don’t lower yourself Dr. Chapman. Stick with the winners and let the losers go on their way.
