Wysteria Regional Message Board
Wysteria Embassy in Texas, is happy to announce that we were invited by NewTexas (Texas Founder), to take part in Texas Fantasy football.
The competition/tournament which 1st game will start in Sep 8th, is opened to friends of Texas which of course puts the ball in
Wysteria court as we have an ongoing 12 years going 13 (in 3 months) of friendship with Texas.
This is an interesting way to interact with our allies and it's a good way to let our nation athletes run wild (preferably with a ball in their hands).
More information can be found in our Embassy reports sub forum in Wysteria offsite forum.
I will update the post with new information along the way.
That sounds interesting. I will have a look although I will admit that beside going with my husband twice to a baseball game while in Phily I have no recollection of ever seeing a football match.
I also went with blind choosing & maybe did a bit of digging for information - but mostly picked them blindly. haha.
I was asked by a colleague from Haas faculty in UC Berkeley to review & give a second opinion on a thesis one of his students submitted and I must say I was mind blown by the lack of moral decency.
Its the second time I had the pleasure this year to encounter a student for phd who cheats on his papers in one way or another. As if they think we don't check every bibliography and marks & notes they write down.
I mean the guy or gal worked hard as is to do their masters, why cheat now? unless their masters was a copy paste as well?~!
Thats exactly what they think. I'm sure that if you will check the papers you submitted a century ago :), to your professors, you will notice that you probably had more than 100 Bibliography references.
Even in BA's the references exceed 50 locations So it can very much be that they might have assumed you will check them but not cross reference them or do in depth.
Also, Its common sometimes to hand the actual writing of papers to a professional that will edit the grammar and Bib etc. Could be, they edit more than they should have :)
"A century ago"...thanks for reminding me how long ago it was
I have you know my Ba/Masters/phd and others... all exceeded the required references numbers.
When you do research on subjects you like or believe in, its rather hard to confine yourself to the required numbers.
Which also goes to the point that if someone got to the position where they seek the next level of professionalism (Academic wise), you would expect that
1. They will continue their line of thought from their masters (thesis usually share same theory or developed theory based on results in masters)
2. Wont need to cheat when it comes to collecting & submitting data.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating our 500km Aido-Kyoto Trail.
Unlike the typical fanatic tradition, we wont ask you to walk the 500km path on your knees like our Nun Fattty-Ma.
Instead you will be able to walk on your feet or use bicycles.
So Those who will venture into this long long and tedious hike / cycle will be able to get a flower from an old lady every 500 meters (yes, thats 1000 flowers all together).
If you will collect all 1000 flowers and will carry them by yourself in good condition....A toaster oven will be waiting for you at the exit.
Of course, its much easier to just buy the Toaster Oven instead of wasting a lot of money on Doctors after a ruinning your legs and knees in a 500km walk /cycling but who are to judge the fanatics.
Back from a star party, wedding, and visiting with family. My cousin, the bride, was on the shooting range at the local rod and gun club (for the reception), in her wedding dress making certain that the clay pigeons remembered her name before she heads back overseas to live in England. It reminded me a lot of the old family photos of the pioneering days of the family, with the ladies in their Sunday best posing with their favourite rifles and shotguns.
The star party was pretty good too; staying up late enough to see Orion rising in the East, as a preview of the autumn skies to come. Another of my cousins was there for that. She won a pair of big binoculars as the big door prize for the night, so I spent a while showing her a bunch of deep space binocular targets.
My parents have started pasturing a small herd of Icelandic sheep, who are much more photogenic than regular sheep. I also ended up picking a few boxes of crab apples, so Equus doesn't lack for things to do when she turns them into crab apple jelly.
I've been married to NationStates for nearly 14 years and it's been a bit rocky sometimes. ;>)
