My visa to China was denied and I won't be going. My life is on red alert as we scramble to figure out what's happening next.

Our oldest dog, Hiccups, has a strange relationship with the dog brush. He loves to shove the bristles up against his face.

Gamify math class--beyond Khan Academy
Most elementary age kids I know love math, but that changes when they matriculate to middle school. If you ask seventh and eighth graders what their hardest subject is, they'll hands down tell you ...

I was trying to get a 10-second video that I shot for class to upload before going home, and I couldn't get it to start. Everything seemed to be right. It was showing up in Photos, I was on Wifi and charging, but it just wouldn't start, even when I tried forcing "backup everything".

The solution? Open the video, click "share" and "get link". It will trigger an immediate upload.

I finally saw Jurassic World last night. Not bad. Summer action blockbuster. But like many other science-oriented fills, I was a little disappointed that the dinosaurs looked and sounded virtually identical to the originals, despite what we've learned in the last twenty years.

Jurassic Park (the book) was on the cutting edge, and the movie was still ahead of its time, changing many people's understanding of dinosaurs. Jurassic World is none of that.

As the Intel Compute Stick also includes a 64-bit bootloader I've made an additional Ubuntu LiveCD. This version does not need a DSDT patch to get sound to work when booting from 64-bit and therefore maybe more preferable for some.

To try it first download the 'ISO' from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0dDe67dnlwU2p6aTBNWnc and use 'Rufus' (Windows) or 'dd' (Linux) to prepare a bootable USB and connect it to your ICS.

Next enter the BIOS (or 'Setup') by pressing 'F2' on power-up and from the 'Configuration' menu change the 'Select Operating System' from 'Windows 8.1 32-bit' to 'Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit' and save the changes.

Then press 'F10' on exiting the BIOS to 'Enter Boot Menu' and boot from your USB. You will get an initial menu screen where you should select 'Try Ubuntu' and then wait for it to load. This part takes time and initially nothing is displayed on the screen making you think that nothing is happening. Actually the 'squash' file system is being uncompressed and once this has completed the Unity screen will be displayed.

Be careful if you decide to install Ubuntu on the device's eMMC as the initial boot option will change to Ubuntu meaning you can no longer use this option to boot Windows. However if you enable 'Internal UEFI Shell' in the BIOS's 'Configuration' menu you can use this to run the 'bootia32.efi' file to boot Windows.

You will notice that the sound is choppy when booting from 64-bit compared to booting from 32-bit. 

If you do decide to install Ubuntu to the device and then want to boot from 32-bit this is quite easily done. You will first need to swap the 64-bit GRUB2 bootloader for the 32-bit version in Ubuntu by entering 'apt-get -y install grub-efi-ia32 grub-efi-ia32-bin'. Then shutdown Ubuntu and enter the BIOS by pressing 'F2' on power-up. Now change the 'Select Operating System' back from 'Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit' to 'Windows 8.1 32-bit' and save the changes. You can now boot either Windows or Ubuntu after pressing 'F10'. Finally it is necessary to enable sound in Ubuntu by fixing the BIOS DSDT.  Download the following patch script https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0dDe67QjYwb1RDNVA0NlU and run as 'root' and then reboot to complete the fix.

Because I continue to think about MMA as a team sport:
1. Camps as teams, hosting events and getting a good portion of the gate, network, and PPV.
2. Keep the same scoring, and simply add the judged points together to get the total score. For KOs and subs, the winner gets full points for unscored rounds, while the loser gets 0. Camps will try to end fights instead of getting a decision.
3. Continents should have their own leagues, and champion teams from each league meet in the off season for a "world championship."
4. Meets are four prelims and six main card fights at different weight classes. The host team gets to choose the order of weight classes. Prelims don't count for meet points -- great place to try out second string guys, test new coaching strategies, or put a good fighter just coming off of injury.
5. Are you going to miss weight class champions? We can count cumulative points for each fighter in the weight classes and have playoffs with the top four scorers from each class.
6. Camps get to move fighters between weight classes if necessary, and have things like injured reserve.
7 Camps pay fighters. Great fighters will obviously get multiple offers from different camps, be paid more, be paid salary, get extensive support from the camp they fight for WRT strength and conditioning, diet, counseling, etc., and will generally be in tens times better shape mentally and physically than they are now.
8. I would guess that camps will specialize in transitioning certain kinds of athletes into MMA fighters. Recruiting wrestlers, judo practitioners, or kickboxers is obvious, but what if if a coaching team figures out the "formula" for converting semi-successful high-school or college football players (even specifically tight ends) into a different kind of athlete? Things would get interesting if camps were actively recruiting and developing talent.
9. In the same vein, camps would likely have an indentifiable style.

Fury Road is seemingly self-contradictory in every way possible. There is nothing left in the world, but people are shockingly wasteful, which might imply no one is expecting to live until tomorrow, but the whole plot centers around "breeders", which only makes sense thinking about the long game.

It's no different from the originals, I guess, but that is sad. It's like a twelve year old boy's imagination run wild, set to a soundtrack and given an unlimited CG budget.

This was surprisingly good for a restaurant on the end of a good court. I want expecting much from an Italian restaurant in this kind of location, but the food was good, the price was reasonable, and they had what i can say was easily the best service I've had in Taiwan in for years here. Each course was served perfectly on time, and dishes from the same course were served all at once. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but I've never had that happen consistently anywhere I've eaten on Taiwan. Bravo.

Had the brunch. "Gouda" cheese was actually slices of American and the "rye" bread was whole wheat, maybe -- no eye flavor, for sure. I could have had a better brunch for half the price across the street. Too bad, i had been eyeing this place for a month.

Quite good for mid-range Italian food. Stay with the lasagna and not the risotto. Pastas are 120-180 per plate with free tea and ice cream. No, it's not a fancy night out, but it's an awesome lunch. If you go for the dinner, you'll get steak or ribs, apps, soup, coffee, salad, dessert for about nt$300. Not shabby. It's my new favorite Sunday brunch place.
