Show and Tell

< The pairing of the working software engineer and the professional teacher is the genius of the TEALS program. It is a hack on the system that gets the software engineer, the subject matter expert, into the classroom without having to deal with teacher credentialing. It also means the software engineer can deliver the lessons without having to deal with classroom management, homework, testing, etc.>

The Running Man

<They now seized Colter, stripped him entirely naked, and began to consult on the manner in which he should be put to death. They were first inclined to set him up as a mark to shoot at. But the chief interfered, and seizing him by the shoulder, asked him if he could run fast.

Colter, who had been some time amongst the Crow Indians, had in a considerable degree acquired the Blackfoot language. He was also well acquainted with Indian customs. He knew that he had now to run for his life, with the dreadful odds of five or six hundred against him. Therefore he cunningly replied that he was a very bad runner—although he was considered by the hunters as remarkably swift.>
People have told and retold John Colter’s adventures with embellishments that turn him into a legendary figure like Pecos Bill and Paul Bunyon. But Colter really did cross the plains naked after outrunning hundreds of Blackfeet warriors who were screaming for his scalp. He really was the first white man to visit what is now Yellowstone Park. And his reports of a stinking place where springs spout steam and boiling water were greeted as fantasy an...

Quote of the Day:

"If you think the world's business is decided by simply choosing wisely between John Galt and Noam Chomsky, I don't know what to say to you. Mozart is never going to show up on American Idol."

Phrase of the Day: Waterloo of the Tropics

"Twenty years later, at the 1950 World Cup final, played at Maracanã stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Uruguay defeated Brazil, 2-1, in one of the most famous comebacks in soccer history. The ghosts of that match, once described as the Waterloo of the Tropics , still haunt Brazil."

THE HISTORY OF LEVERAXE

Via +Michael Hazen 

<Upon hitting the top of the log and penetrating it slightly, the leading edge of the axe head begins to slow down. Where the axe blade widens sharply it stops the axe’s penetration. However, the mass of the axe head still has kinetic energy and the off line center of gravity forces it to rotate eccentrically down towards the wood. This rotational movement causes the leading edge, or sharp edge of the blade to turn in a lever action, forcing a split with all the force of the kinetic energy of the axe multiplied by the leverage of the axehead. The widening blade edge also has a benefit in that it helps to prevent the axe from penetrating into the wood and getting stuck there as is often the case with traditional axes.>

A Constellation of Tropes

I saw this phrase in an article and immediately stopped reading it. Why? Because even though there's a wrist rest on my desk there is always the danger that I might gash my head on the desk's edge when I fall into an immediate coma upon reading those words.

There is nothing that could follow that sentence that would make it  worth continuing to read..

The secret to eternal life, daily happiness, and all that I might ever aspire to will be revealed after " a constellation of tropes" ....

THUD!

ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Well, at least they didn't say a Sparkling Constellation of Tropes.
Because Tropes don't Sparkle...
