Vegan Southern Style

I figured out last night that the dining hall will not be an option for me.  Frozen vegetables covered in canola oil and salt is not my idea of delicious. So today, I search on google for vegan restaurants in the area. A number of them actually popped up, so I check one of them out. Fried broccoli, I guess it’s not as bad as fried coke. Thank God Whole Foods is only a mile and a half away.

Ok, Euclid show me what you’ve got

I spent today catching up on articles, clippings, and videos that I’ve been meaning to read in my Evernote inbox. One was an article in last month’s Chance on analysis from data of the eyeballing game. First I had to the play the game. After one attempt, I was slightly better than average.

The authors of the article in Chance make the conclusion: “Completing a parallelogram based on two given line segments is among the hardest tasks for everybody—yet another strike against three-dimensional graphics.” This was gripe I had with Forks Over Knives. All the graphical displays of data in the movie were 3-D, which makes for more WOW factor than critical understanding. You can get the major themes of the movie here and here. The delivery isn’t nearly as WOW, but the content is!
