but that seems like rooting for the Yankees.

If the Yankees were successful…

I am now entering radio silence for the game. We leave L.A. for Coronado in an hour, where I will watch it on DVR delay.

Army - Navy will be in the snow I imagine.

It s all about the coach IMO. Navy has had better coaches since Sutton moved from Army to the NFL. Sutton s a terrific coach and was really well suited for Army. Problem was he was too talented for Army to keep.

NKonIPad

Tom M-- since you brought up the Yanks, given the funeral parlor atmosphere at the new Yankee Stadium, do you Yank fans pay other people to 'root' for the Yanks while you have a citrus flavored vodka in the AC restaurantsunder the stands? Also, you nasty Yank fans DISrepspected poor Robbie Cano, by only offering $175M. You beasts you. (good riddance to that jerk.)

Go Army! Beat Navy!

oh wait, Go Navy. Beat Army.

I am a bipolar fan at this game.

narciso,

An interesting tidbit about the Levenson matter, he was following a lead from Belfied, a man who executed one of the Shah's officials, on tips from Sarkis Soghanalian, the grand ole arms merchant,
Deripaska, a Russian oligarch somehow tied to John Weaver, and some other shadowy figure, that' all the way down the rabbit hole,

People have always been anxious going into the doctor's office, because they never know what the doctor's gonna say. Now, even the doctor doesn't know what the system is going to do.

Looks like he's still learning, BB Key.

Beasts of England

Did Navy steal their helmets from a bunch of unsuspecting motorcycle cops? lol

Beasts of England

Five years ago today ManBearPig (Al Gore) predicted that the Arctic would be ice-free in five years. That ice is still with us. And, unfortunately, so is Al Gore.

2Jack is Back4!

All I can say about the game is that Army had last year's game in hand before the QB fumbled which happens to them a lot. I don't discount either team. Its always been a different game no matter who is favorite.

Most intensely played game in college football.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Army isn't going down easy. Stopping Navy's three tries from the Knights' one yard line showed great determination.

Beasts of England

According to the JOM Style Guide, we're half way to a slattering.

narciso,

Well it's still technically salvageable, but they havr to hustle.

Obamacare Has Lost the Uninsured

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week asked uninsured individuals whether or not they thought the law was a good idea. Just 24 percent said they thought it was. In contrast, half the uninsured polled said they thought it was a bad idea. As the Journal points out, that represents an 11 point drop in support for the law amongst the uninsured since September. The same poll also finds that 56 percent of the uninsured believe the law will have a negative effect on the U.S. health care system.

narciso,

narciso,

I will.

The Denver Post doesn't want to tell its readers that the shooter was a self described "Socialist". Why would that be? I think we all know the answer to that one...

Gmax

If he had called himself a Tea Party Patriot would it have been left out of the story? NFW

Gmax

The same poll also finds that 56 percent of the uninsured believe the law will have a negative effect on the U.S. health care system.

Proving that the uninsured are not stupid and smarter than every Democrat in Congress, and most Democrats nationwide.

Sandy Saturdaze

Well, the NAVY-army game is THE game of the year for the two academies, the entire season.

If the Army had a general who constantly lost the most significant battle(s) he faced, every time he met the (same) enemy... what would it due.

The army coach is now staring loss five out of five tries...

What was it Patton said... oh yeah:

"America loves a winner and will not tolerate a loser..."

Ellerson... one would think your days are numbered.

Five tries and nada ? Hmmmm.

How long will the cadets have to put up with this , ahem, loser ?

Beasts of England

I heard a rumor that Saban was going to West Point...

Icelanders Overthrow Government and Rewrite Constitution After Banking Fraud-No Word From US Media

Washington lost most of his battles until he won the war.

bosco

I thoroughly enjoy that some states are capitalizing on KELO to prevent Banksters from purloining more through fraudulent foreclosures.

It's as though SCOTUS is also subject to KARMA.

A welcome trend indeed.

2Jack is Back4!

Oh,oh! TD Army.

BTW, greatest name in Navy football history is Wave Rynder who is one of their linebackers:)

2Jack is Back4!

But Matt,

He won the most important battel at Trenton on Boxing Day, 1776 which turned the tide of the war in a remarkable manuever by crossing the icy Delaware.

narciso,

Alright they are within 10, possible but not likely.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Is there any think tank on the right that is preparing the "how to" for shrinking the federal government?

I know many advocacy organizations link up with politicians & pretty much walk the politicians through how to get the legislation they want. The laws & regulations are ready to go for the right moment.
Do we have something like that on the right? I believe the pro-life movement has it...but just in general?
Laws & repeal ideas ready to go for the right moment...

narciso,

Heritage, that's why they are getting the brick bats, AEI has basically accomodated itself to the status quo, except for Wallison,

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

I know there are policy papers & stuff...but I mean the actual instructions on how to finally DO IT. The action side of things.

Mae West: "...if he'd been with Washington, he would have double-crossed the Delaware."

Captain Hate

TK's link is outstanding but as usual al-Guardian draws the wrong conclusion.

2Jack is Back4!

Lot of fair weather fans at the game today. Mucho empty seats in Philly.

Captain Hate

I know you'll all find this shocking but Dame Peggy likes the Ryan-Murray deal.

rse

Janet-I agree with narc on aei. In fact they are involved with that horrific new civic values report, and sponsored a program touting Jonathan Haidt's book. Why anyone would promote a book touting emotion instead of reason.

I went to a program a few months ago in Ga put on by the Heritage state affiliate pushing an Industrial Policy economy. I was horrified at what I heard, but not surprised. It was why I was there.

I am afraid quite a few think tanks that people think of as conservative only push what brings in contributions. Their heart seems to lie with Statism and they frequently hire people from the Left or married to people on the Left.

2Jack is Back4!

Can you find the gentleman in this photo?

He really is an obnoxious, little jerk.

bosco

"I am afraid quite a few think tanks that people think of as conservative only push what brings in contributions."

Good attention. Same thing on both sides. Subscription monies and book sales drive the profitology. Oh, wait. Isn't that a feature rather than a bug? Since when have conservatives turned down free money?

Miss Marple

rse, I am afraid that many so-called conservative groups (as well as radio hosts and writers) see us as easy marks because we are generally marginalized from the general public.

I know many here dont like boehner, but his anger the other day was somewhat justified. Jim DeMint is not particularly trustworthy, in my opinion, and has managed to get himself a well-paying gig by abandoning his Senate seat and instead lobbing grenades at Congress from his comfy chair.

How about Ann Coulter? Romney was the only one who could win! Oops. Christie is who we need! No, now she's done with him! Instead, let's go on Bill Maher's show and be his best buddy!

I pretty much have given up on almost all of them. In fact, my major effort is now devoted to making as much money I can through my little business in order to pay for my grandchildren's college so they don't have to take out loans.

I think I will have more success at this than convincing anyone in Washington to listen to my opinion. And the money I spent on books, donations, etc. is going to go to my grandchildren instead.

rich@gmu

ugly game in Philly-yikes a 2 pt conversion.

taking a break from studying...it is all becoming a blur.

Miss Marple

rich@gmu,

I had a lot of success studying (and also helped my daughter) by spending 15-minutes to half an hour and then taking a 5-10 minute break then resuming.

My daughter also did better by reciting aloud the things she was learning.

Different people learn in different ways, so this might not work for you, but I thought I would offer a couple of things that worked for me.

rich@gmu

funny pic...and great comments too...Obama's looking for a Marine.

back to the books for me.

Beasts of England

I concur with MM, rich. Always take plenty of seriously distracting breaks every few hours. Diminishing returns if not, in my experiences.

DrJ

I can't imagine being a student again, having to study and taking tests. Ugh. I'd much rather be on the other side of the lectern.

DrJ

Oh, and new thread.

Extraneus

Different people learn in different ways

Richard Feynman talked about this in the video cathyf linked yesterday. He found it to be true with his many physics students as well as his two children. Everyone knows this, of course, but Feynman went into some specifics.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Excellent video if you have 49 minutes, including a great riff on pseudo-scientists. Too bad he wasn't around for the Global Warming scare.

rich@gmu

...think I might be a bit ADD...always need a distraction. thanks for the recommendations Beasts and MM.

DrJ-

Yeah. It is odd-in good and bad ways-it is one of the reasons for the end of year evaluation (work and personal circumstances are militating against me continuing). One good thing about the whole experience is that since the company cut my hours at work I have something worthwhile to do. The bad thing-teenagers and early 20's immortals. YIKES-I was never that bad! and where has the time gone. In all, a mixed bag of mostly success (save a few unfortunate incidents).

rich@gmu

Ex-

thanks for the link, bookmarked for future reference.

DrJ

rich,

I do hope that you are able to continue. Kvetching aside you seem to be enjoying it and learning good things.

Extraneus

I don't know if it helps, Rich, but one thing I did in my (physics) student days was to go to the library and read explanations of new concepts from multiple books before I tried cracking the code in the homeworks or tests. Often times I'd find a slight difference in how something was explained that made things much easier to understand.

Unlike DrJ, I wish I were still there!

DrJ

Well, Ex, I do have a good lab in which to tinker and teach myself new things. Who needs a school for that?

I admit the presence of coeds does have certain psychic benefits that I lack here.

rich@gmu

I am having some fun, at least trying too. How best to explain it? I f'ed up my last round of school (even though I graduated)-unfocused, binge drinking...couldn't get out of my own way-and then once I finished, had no real idea for what to do after, then life intervened. I really wanted to go back to show to myself I could do it right, get the degree I wanted, and the opportunity presented itself. Still screwing around (part of the eval!) but much less so this time around.

Probably too much information...too talkative...esp for an supposed adult.

rich@gmu

Ex-

at the library right now...trying to absorb econ through korn on the headphones and coffee. YIKES! I suppose if I were start through my books around that might cause a scene.


and speaking of music...yikes...my tastes must be shockingly bad!

rich@gmu

even bigger yikes- absorb econ with korn...coffee...were to start throwing my books...

I'm so jacked up on coffee I don't think I'll sleep for a week.

DrJ

rich,

On occasion I have dreams about returning to school to "prove myself." They always turn into nightmares.

You seem to be dong much better than that.

Extraneus

I guess it's just us here now, since there's a new thread.

I can understand your point, DrJ, since you're doing your own work in a lab, but I wish I'd learned more about higher math and general relativity and hadrons and quarks and quantum electrodynamics and solid state and thermodynamics. I'd have to go back and re-take multiple courses in order to be at the level I was when I was learning that stuff, which ain't gonna happen. And even if I had the time and inclination, I'm a lot dumber now.

Anyway, I'm jealous of Rich, because he's still in the thick of it. And of course the only co-eds I'll ever see now will be my son's girlfriends, if we're both lucky enough.

DrJ

Ex,

I was fortunate that I learned most of the basics I need in graduate school, including two years of (analytical) partial differential equations. I'd love to know more modern biology, though.

There is no way I'd ever pass the Professional Engineering examination these days, though. I've simply forgotten too much. Statics/Applied Mechanics? What's that?

And yikes! my granddaughter starts college next year! So much for coeds!

rich@gmu

well it ain't Caltech or MIT so I wouldn't go quite so far as to say in the thick of it. I have some pretty good profs though.

co-eds...

DrJ, what would you go back for? In my case it works for a career path (or I can at least lie to myself and say that it does). And one of the things I'd like to do is have my own shop as it were, and tinker with stuff because breaking stuff is about the only way I seem to learn.

DrJ

rich,

The only thing that would draw me back to academia is a tenured faculty position. I know that's not what you meant.

If it is good for your career track, that is a good thing. Many positions these days require that appropriate sheepskin, whether they strictly are required or not. And sometimes the skills are very useful.

It is not unusual even for faculty to change careers -- the difference is that they do not give up their positions. I have a friend and colleague who changed her field from process control to plant biotechnology. She succeeded, and has a pretty good track record of bringing in grant money.

Doing the experiment, breaking things and pushing limits is about the only way I learn too. Well, I trust the math too if it is done right.

rich@gmu

lol...don't think a career in academia is in my future

DrJ

It's not for me either, rich, though I think I would enjoy it. No, I'm too old and my work is not distinguished enough for any University to want to hire me for a tenured faculty position.

rich@gmu

wouldn't say that, don't you review grants from tenured faculty from all over the country?

DrJ

rich, sure I do, and I've competed against faculty successfully in winning grants.

However, my publication trail and influence on the field is not good enough. Commercial goals and faculty goals can be quite different, and the number of publications is one place where that is pronounced.

Now if I would bring in $1 million a year in grants that could be overlooked. But I don't. That said, I do bring in more research money than the local Cal State University -- all of it.

sbw

But enough about hadrons, how about amplituhedrons?

narciso,

Is that your final answer;

Stephanie looking forward to the bowl games

There are no final answers from the left. They just move goalposts, obfuscate or lie.

There are final solutions, though.
