What’s going on with health care, elections, Democratic Party, etc.blueollie

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:36:18 +0000

Yes, the Senate Republicans are trying, once again, to strip health care away from millions. Why? Because people like the Koch Brothers said “no more money until you do”. It is really that simple, I think. The 2016 election: it was perhaps a bit more than “Comey letter plus “she is a woman”” but, well, […](image)

Irrational reaction…blueollie

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 22:12:08 +0000

Easy paced 10+ mile walk; some light rain (untimed walk; not much of an effort except in spots). This was my “start of Boredom to Glenn Oak to the River course. Irrational: if it is empty people usually greet me. The most irritating greeting is given by middle aged women ….it is the tone and […](image)

5K on one run a week (Bradley Hilltop)blueollie

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 16:24:25 +0000

Ok, since late July, I’ve been running about once a week. I’ve been covering 40-45 miles per week (sometimes as much as 50), but most of that has been walking (I’ve had 4 20 mile walks in my build up, and lots of 10-15 mile walks, etc.) But only one run, and usually that is […](image)

Hillary Clinton: not a politicianblueollie

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 22:06:34 +0000

I’ve watched the back and forth about Hillary Clinton and her book. I’ll have to read the book. But from what I’ve read, it appears that this is classic Hillary Clinton: she looks at an issue (in this case, her election loss), examines the facts and gives an honest answer. But any honest answer (e. […](image)

weirdness with dumbbellsblueollie

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 21:58:24 +0000

I was “low energy” today. But the weirdest thing happened with my dumbbell presses. I went to the other side of the gym to do dumbbell military presses with 50 lb. dumbbells: I could barely squeeze out 1 rep (fatter handles) but I got my usual 10 with the “usual 50s” AFTER doing a set […](image)

Drinking the Blue and Orange Kool Aid by the gallonblueollie

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 00:36:59 +0000

Yes, the Illini are 2-0. How often does that happen? Well, it depends on when the first “game against a power 5 team” is scheduled…. 2011: wins over Arkansas State and South Dakota State (2-0…4-6 the rest) 2012: Western Michigan first, then Arizona State…ooops 1-1 (1-9 the rest) 2013: Southern Illinois and Cincinnati (latter WAS […](image)

And Democratic politics depress me even more…blueollie

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 02:06:54 +0000

Sigh. Now we have Hillary Clinton supporters fighting with Bernie Sanders supporters. Yes, I was “Clinton all the way” this time around, and I think it is joke that anyone takes Sanders seriously for 2020. And so Hillary Clinton came out with a book that I am interested in. But, of course, she is catching […](image)

Goat Rant 4: how to get me to skip your post/article part 2blueollie

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 01:49:39 +0000

Ok, I posted a part I of this. Here is part II: first, let me make this clear: there is nothing wrong with writing for a specific audience. I do this when I write mathematical articles. So having me scroll past or otherwise ignore what you write might not be a bad thing. So, I’ll […](image)

Goat Rant 3: what is an academic “success story”?blueollie

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 01:36:25 +0000

There are different kind of success stories. But the ones that I think about are those of the following variety: underprepared student shows up with low SAT/ACT scores. They struggle. They get “worked with” and somehow cobble together a degree. Now is that a success? Well, it depends on how you think of it. Imagine […](image)

Illinois smothers sloppy Western Kentuckyblueollie

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:20:53 +0000

Yes, I did get a 16 mile walk first; 5.1 mile course (Bradley Park) plus a 10.05 (to the River plus goose loop) plus a bit more than 1. It was 4:11 or thereabouts. And this morning, I got in a 4.2 walk, untimed. Now about the game The short: the Illini were 7.5 point […](image)
