Chris Hadfield - Canadian Astronaut.
I was totally inspired by it. Hadfield is a great writer. And of course the stories are gripping.
He is a driven person and part of the story emphasizes the importance of that.
To go to space requires a lot of study, preparation and planning. That transfers to real life. We succeed when we prepare to succeed.
Good book. Highly recommended.
I visited my university professor daughter, Laura on the weekend. She has recently moved to College Station Texas to accept a position at Texas A and M.
She published a lot. Her article on punctuation was accessible.
I loved College Station - neat, clean, safe and very low cost. I loved the campus. Lots of new buildings, well kept, huge. They had the biggest fitness facility I have ever seen that includes a 1/4 mile indoor track, multiple basketball courts, huge pool, 20+ squash and racquetball courts.
I like university towns. They tend to be environmentally advanced. I loved that there were many bike parking areas - often with air and even one with tools.
The new Canadian antispam law Bill C28 is interesting. Because email is almost free, it has been overused.
At one time, I was stressed by spam. I find Google tabs helps by sorting most of it out. And when I actually analyzed it, I can actually deal with 50 spam messages in a couple of minute. But often I cannot deal with a real email that requires action in less than 5-10 minutes. So it is real email that creates workload.
There is a simple web questionnaire Canadian companies can use to see if they violate the new spam laws. Try it here.
And for those enjoying this weather. Josh and Victoria are.
