How to get a good grade in my class.

The real world is sneaking in again. Oh well. Just finished a marathon of grading. Students might think my finals are hard. Grading 60 of them takes two days. My class was large enough that the university’s online grading system choked.

There is an extremely interesting correlation, and one that is very statistically significant. If you actually do the homework you tend to do well in class. This might not be causal, in that students who can’t do the homework can’t do the tests, but it is highly suggestive. Certainly a ‘head’s up’ would be that if you can’t do the homeworks then you probably should take some other class. Similarly if you’re too lazy to do the homework or it isn’t interesting to you, then maybe you shouldn’t be doing this.

International man of mystery. Well not really, although I can mangle several languages and even read the occasional hieroglyphic. A computer scientist, an author and one of the very few people who has both an NIH grant and had a book contract. An ex- booktrope author and a photographer.

Bedrock & Paradox

I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a non-human world and yet somehow survives still intact, individual, separate. Paradox and bedrock.
