Functions On My Mind…

Just For Fun

I taught my last class of the summer today- I tried to make it lighthearted and interesting, so I showed The Stand-Up Economist’s “10 Principles of Economics” bit and then gave an anecdotal intro to behavioral economics. (I wasn’t, however, clever enough to think ahead as one of my colleagues did and survey my students to show that even they exhibit the same biases as “average” people…though I did snag his results slides. Well played, Tom…)

The end of the summer program also indicated that it was time for our annual end of summer faculty dinner, complete with talent show. Despite my preference for piano and karaoke coupled with a lack of fear of looking like an idiot in public, I do not perform, but I do donate the services of my (quite cumbersome) digital piano. Is my effort worth it? You be the judge:

And so goes my first foray into video creation/editing territory…watch out world! (Given the title of the site, it’s only a matter of time until I get involved in porn…behind the camera of course. 🙂 )

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    The creation of content is very important to online
    marketing. The abundance of websites allows people to refer online directories
    to search for websites they desire. The first rule when writing
    for voice search is to ensure your content reflects natural speech
    patterns. After all, the emotions are inevitable given the sweat and blood that goes into creating a website
    and raising it so it eventually helps in making some money.
