Dear HMC Alums:  We're looking for people in SoCal who might be interested to be a mentor to a HMC student. It's a 3-year commitment. If you're interested or know of someone in the area who might be, please have them contact me!

https://www.hmc.edu/diversity/mudders-mentoring-mudders/

Thanks!  Darryl

Maybe some day we can add on a "remote mentor" program!  For now, we're relying on face-to-face mentoring since that seems to be the most effective way to build relationships.

Finally, you can remove birthdays of Google+ folks from your "Birthdays" calendar so you only see birthdays of your contacts.  (Sorry, I love y'all, but too much info...)

It turns out you have to use the Calendar app that was just updated today on an Android device to change the setting.  You can't do it through the web interface yet, though once you make the chance on your Android device the change will propagate through to the desktop version.

Hooray!

Dear Yelp,

Please add "noise level" as one of the characteristics of a restaurant or bar that you keep track of. Allow people to measure the noise level of an establishment with their smartphones when checking in, using the app.

You're welcome.

HMC is the top school to attend if you want to major in math, according to College Factual!

I take these with a grain of salt, but it's still nice to featured!
