Καλό μήνα

Πάει το καλοκαίρι...ήρθε ο Σεπτέμβρης με το φθινόπωρο, τα κρύα, τα κόκκινα φύλλα, και τις σχολικές εργασίες... μπλιάχ... Καλό μας μήνα...αλλά δεν γίνεται να έρθει πίσω το καλοκαίρι για μερικούς μήνες; Σήμερα το πρωί έπρεπε να

Sev TNG: Picard the ladies-man

Hmmm... this would seem better if delivered by a Vulcan.  Of course, it could have been after the mind-meld with Sarek...so ...potentially explainable.  One of the alternates was a little better in my opinion " At least Tryhard's still here! Mine are all either transferred, dead, or whisked off with Q!" (original archive here)

Awesome, awesome, cross-over!

Last week on Reddit I came across this image, which makes for an interesting cross over between the Assassin's Creed universe and the Stargate University.  The next game in the Assassin's Creed series hits the consoles this fall and (as the name suggests) it goes back to the start of the Assassins (and probably the Templars), and the aliens who posed as gods... The origins take place in Roman

Methods section humor

Some Sunday humor... I thought it was apropos given that I've been working on getting my methods section polished off and done by August 30th. I am, sort of, there too!  I just need to work on getting my reliability & validity sections done (I've got disjointed fragments I have written already), and my ethics section done (again, disjointed fragments). It's a bit slow-going because I need

Sev TNG: Free cable

I guess it should be free satellite, not free cable.  I prefer the alternates of "Sure beats the pajamas that Star Fleet makes YOU wear!" and "After a few Millennia, you tend to run out of fashion ideas. . ." (original archive here)

Review: 42 Rules for Successful Collaboration (2nd Edition): A Practical Approach to Working with People, Processes and Technology

42 Rules for Successful Collaboration (2nd Edition): A Practical Approach to Working with People, Processes and Technology by David ColemanMy rating: 2 of 5 stars I guess I forgot to check off this book as read a few days ago. The book was OK, and it was a fairly fast book to read, not weighed down by disciplinary jargon. That said, some of the rules are quite helpful, whereas others

Είδαμε και έκλειψη

Χτες στην περιοχή μας είχαμε ηλιακή έκλειψη και για ‘μένα ήταν η πρώτη φορά στην ζωή μου που ήμουν σε περιοχή να δω μια έκλειψη. Στην Βοστόνη η έκλειψη ήταν μόνο 68% της επιφάνειας του ηλίου, οπότε δεν ήταν ολική έκλειψη και

Review: Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences

Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences by Irving SeidmanMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Quite a good read on conducting interviews as part of educational research. It does seem to focus on phenomenological interviews, where the interview is the one and only approach, but it might be useful for other cases where interviews are one of many

Music Rewind: Mmmbop

😂LOL. Έκανα μια γρήγορη αναζήτηση στο google να δω τι άλλα τραγούδια από το 1997 είχα ξεχάσει και πέτυχα αυτό. Τι γέλιο! Όντως το είχα ξεχάσει επειδή δεν το έχω σε κάποια λίστα στο iTunes αλλά εδώ στον Βοστόνη το έπαιζε το ράδιο συνέχεια

Of paradoxes, and politics

With the "Free Speech" rally happening in Boston today (and various other counterprotests), it seemed that this would be a good post for today - a report from other places already posted on facebook and other social media. Let's see who peaceful things are in Boston today. At least the police in Boston seem to have a better plan that those folks in NC, which I hope will keep folks safe.
