Rejection

A conference paper Doctor Madeline (which is how she demands to be called now that she has her PhD) and I had submitted to the ISA (The International Studies Association) was rejected today.

Star Trek at 50!

A little show appeared on television today back on September 8, 1966 and after many years, TV shows, movies, books, and conventions, it is still going strong.

Diploma!

Its always wonderful to receive a new diploma in the mail, but I am sad to say the quality (paper and ink) of the physical diploma has come down over the years.

LT Media Lab News

I learned today that the LT Media Lab had posted “Congrats to LT’s newest M.Ed. graduates!” back on May 15, which you can view here: https://lt.umn.edu/news/med-showcase-2016/. The department does a great LT M.Ed. showcase. I am even in a few of the photos posted, which is always fun to see. All photos and images listed […]
