Prepping for Paris

by smithpres

Leaving for France in two weeks exactly. You think after having taught this course three times already, it would all be routine by now. And mostly, it is. Still, lots and lots to get done. Teaching a course abroad is an interesting experience. Some of it is just like teaching a regular class: syllabus prep, […]

A quick one on attitude

by GoogleGuacamole

There are people who are on working teams who habitually say things like they are willing to “help” but don’t ever seem to take primary responsibility for the work.  These people really bother me, probably because they are the professional version of the fathers* who offer to “babysit” their own kids.  Fathers: You do not... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/06/13/a-quick-one-on-attitude/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=14548&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Ending Sarcasm

by GoogleGuacamole

Screen Shot 2017-06-11 at 6.32.02 PM
Sometimes if feels like society accepts or even glamorizes sarcasm. The problem is that sarcasm hurts everyone – the giver, receiver, and any witnesses. People who are routinely sarcastic have a problem.  As suggested in this blog post, “show me a sarcastic person and I will show you a wounded person.  And I can tell... […]

Note to self

by GoogleGuacamole

Hey Laura – You were raised in music, although not in the way suggested by Paul Simon; your mother really never laughed the way some ladies do, at least not around you.  Nevertheless, her record collection from 1968 to 1972 was killer, and she trained up a music-loving child. Folk rock to pop rock to... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/06/09/note-to-self/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=14237&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Dieting as a lifestyle

by GoogleGuacamole

This is part of a larger thought. Some people have very early memories. I remember being in my crib. I thought it was a fine crib except for when I didn’t want to be in it.  My very first memory was at night.

The expertise, not the pedagogy

Today I attended Edwin Tufte’s one day course on presenting data and information.  It involved sitting in a double wide airport hotel ballroom from 9am to 4pm; the first hour consisted of a “study hall” in which I was given four (beautiful) texts and a list of assigned reading.  Lecture started at 10a and continued until 1:15p.
