Going for the reset button
Somehow this week in particular, has been all about upgrades. Now that everyone is back to business, I’m finding out that the same tools I had during the late spring early summer are not going to cut it anymore. Sometimes, upgrades do come with bumps in the road, and this week has been no exception.…
Rules to live by in 2009
Its the second day into the new year and lessons have already started to reveal themselves.

It was actually Yoo-hoo chocolate milk. Thank goodness its not a permanent sign or else the trademark police would have been on the case.
“Eagle Eye” Cockerl
For the first time in my Academic Career, plagiarism has knocked on my door. None the less, “Eagle Eye” (a name given to me by a colleague) noticed that the papers were too perfect. Lo and behold, I did a google search and I found them on the web. Talk about the students sending me…
