I end up spending all day listening to student presentations about what they've been studying.
I've already heard two great presentations, one about the commercialization of hip hop on Tanzania and another about the need to implement rock and roll ensembles in music education.
The last one was one of the best presentations I've seen--ole boy was a little frenetic, but that only served to underscore his passion about his subject.
Really great stuff.
Any suggestions/reasoning to learn one over another?
I'll probably end up doing multiple maps of home addresses as well as choropleths based on zip code/regions, etc. I've only used MapPoint in the past and figure I could probably do better with R.
Thoughts a/o suggestions? Things I'm not considering?
I miss the OLGA...
Whoever made this thing did a poor job of bracing the top--the only braces run vertically from the top all the way to the bottom, but not quite under the bridges, which lets the treble bridge roll as the top buckles and sags (you can see it sagging towards the sound hole in the pic.)
I'd like to add some thin horizontal braces, but the sound holes are too small to work through (they're about the size of a mandolin hole, maybe slightly bigger). What I really need to do is take the top off.
I seriously doubt the person who built this thing, whoever they were, used hide glue, so I'm nervous that when I try to disassemble it, I'll tear it to pieces.
I've hit the strings mostly loosened (a few strings do more than make flabby noises) and it's still really sagging...2 strings per note, btw.
Any suggestions about taking the soundboard off? I'm nervous I'm going to tear the thing to pieces...
I tried vignette(ggmap)--nothing found.
As I point out, it'll a little gimmicky, but it's at least as much fun as it is gimmicky!
