Holvoet which was just published on November 30, 2016. From what I have read so far, its a great book and gives […]

Happy International Archaeology Day!

In my previous life I was as an archaeologist. I went to school to study archaeology, visited archaeological sites, did laboratory work (cleaning and processing artifacts), went on digs as a student, volunteer, intern, and even for a short time a paid archaeologist. I even have my own trowel (no its not sonic)! In honor […]

Big Boreas Booya!

This afternoon was the Big Boreas Booya! I have been working on the Boreas Leadership Certificate for the past few years and today was the start of their 2016-2017 events. What is a booya you ask? Well “the name comes from an upper-Midwest tradition of community stews. “Booya” refers to both the stew and the […]

Flying!

I flew today! It was the first time in over a year since I last flew (while I could fly – I never had any restrictions, I chose not to until my foot and back were feeling better. Flying is serious and expensive and if your not feeling 100% you should not be flying). It […]

Watson and Holmes Volume 2

I am officially in a comic book (aka graphic novel)! In print!!! A few years ago I backed a Kickstarter campaign to be in a new Sherlock Holmes and John Watson comic book “Watson and Holmes” created by Brandon Perlow and Paul Mendoza. They re-envision Watson and Holmes as African-Americans living in today’s New York […]

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. Always a mixed bag is the conference paper rejection. On one hand you are sad about the rejection, but on the other […]

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. As the years have past who has Star Trek not influenced? NASA, Apple, and the American culture are just a few. I mean, didn’t everyone have a friend […]

For the Love of Spock

Leonard “Spock” Nimoy’s son Adam Nimoy filmed a documentary on his dad “For the Love of Spock” and launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to complete it. Spock and Star Trek! Hello, of course I had to backed it. One of the things that you could do was send in your own Spock photo and […]

Wharton Entrepreneurship Specialization Certificate!

I have been interested in MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) for a while now (and at one time wanted to do my MEd project on them), so this year I have decided to try out a few different ones, from a variety of different educational institutions, and then possible write a paper about it – […]
