Alt Bracketdemic Careen

Time for the EWM Yahoo! NCAA men's basketball tournament pick'em - 12th annual. Like last year, we're using Fibonacci scoring (2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21). Everyone is welcome to join this pool, which will include some of the surest, most over-confident pickers of all time. There's no time for worrying your picks, no time for calling your fortune teller, reading your horoscope, or consulting your constellations. Sign up! Free, free, FREE to you: join this year's group on Yahoo!, Alt Bracketdemic Careen (ID#23161). If you have questions, knee me gently in the sternum with an email at dmueller at Invite your friends, frienemies, faux-frenemies, neighbors, Facebook friends, Twitter followers, bots, posthuman colleagues, hystericists, bracketoricians, Jimmie Johns addicts, discount tattoo artists, children at the bus stop, etc. The group has space for the next 49 who sign up. Pride-ish stakes: reputations are made (and ground to coarse dust) right here.

Yahoo! Tournament Pick'em
Group: Alt Bracketdemic Careen (ID# 23161)
"Makes no difference to us what you studied in college."

I Remember, I Remember

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know the YouTube embeds are ephemeral. Iframe evaporati. Fleeting, all the new things. I'm posting it anyway, in spite of (possibly because of) its impermanence.

Keywords in Threshold Concepts, #4c15 Poster Presentation

I'm in Tampa this week for the 2015 Conference on College Composition and Communication--an event I've been attending every year (except one) since 1999. This year I proposed (and was accepted to present) a poster, and after several hours of finessing for more white space, shifting elements around, and tinkering in Illustrator, here's what I'll be standing next to for 75 minutes this afternoon.

Made up for missing Ph.'s birthday last Saturday (Tampa, gulf-swimming) by taking him for wings and Dukezaga (Gonzuke?) on all the everywhere TV screens last evening. Would've expected that by the just-turned age of 24 he'd still be able to maw his age in mango habanero wings. But no. Don't. To-go box for you, kid. And this morning, at SPS assembly, Is. surprise!-collected Student of the Month honors. Fair warning: a like on one photo but not the other risks rekicking the acme of sibling rivalries. via Facebook
