The Google trend for the search query “quadratic formula”.
It repeats in the same pattern every year. Down in summer, up in September, down again in December and up again in spring time before going down again in the summer. And so it goes on forever.

I haven’t been on much, my in-class midterm was yesterday, now I have to do the take home portion…

Regression analysis using R on a few characteristics that enable a species to “withstand the selective mechanisms of evolution.” It’s actually not that bad at all, I’m enjoying this so far—not to mention interesting topic.



I found this quinoa recipe on allrecipes the other day. Thought I’d share it because it’s really, really, really good. I added red and yellow bell peppers, dry parsley and basil, skipped the cilantro, replaced vegetable oil with olive oil, used low sodium vegetable broth, and topped it off with some avocado.

May mathematics always remain for you an exact and beautiful language, a means of expressing ideas, a way of thought. May mathematics be more than merely another subject that has to be ‘passed’ at an examination and then left behind without a trace. Love mathematics and mathematics will love you back.

Sundews are a genus of carnivorous plants which usually live in wet habitats where the acidic conditions limit the amount of nutrients they can extract from the soil. These plants therefore supplement their diet by catching and digesting small creatures such as insects. Without animal tissue this plant would not survive.

Risk, then, is not just part of life. It is life. The place between your comfort zone and your dream is where life takes place. It’s the high-anxiety zone, but it’s also where you discover who you are.

It is one of the consolations of philosophy that the benefit of showing how to dispense with a concept does not hinge on dispensing with it.
