yep, our velocity on the way to Harbaughville isn't that fast yet, but our acceleration toward the destination is significant.

Now that u mention it, idk if I took 217 or 417, but it's still the same content generally. AFA what it's used for, well it's kind of obvious that it's a quick way of solving a set of linear equations with n variables. Everyone in HS can solve a system of 2 linear equations, even three etc, but it's tedious using the solve and substitute method. So just plug in your coefficients into a matrix and do the matrix math when the system has n>3 variables.
|3 days 21 hours ago||I know many people have said||
I know many people have said math 217 was brutal, but I don't get it. It seemed pretty straight forward to me- yes, matrix math is tedious by hand, but it's not hard. Sure there are a few theorems and proofs, but those are pretty simple in 217 compared to other math classes. I'd take it bc it helps u understand arrays in programming. Full disclosure: this is from a guy who majored in astrophysics at M.

I really want a car. Problem is, we are saving up for a house down payment. Current car just got paid off and is (of course) starting to need repairs (heat is wonky, trans is wonky). Was thinking of getting a lease for a better family car that would be our 1st new-new car, while still getting some value for the current one. Yes, I'm fishing for advice for the situation and any car advice as well

I kind of feel like we need to have serious conversations about the weather. I can't imagine it's such a deal breaker that people would make serious career decisions over it. Can someone explain in more detail b/c I just don't get it?

|2 weeks 6 days ago||Problem is, I really don't||
Problem is, I really don't need a 3rd row. But, I like the flexibility of the room the Lexus RX provides. It's basically the biggest 2 row SUV out there and gets the best reviews (from US News rankings, Edmunds, etc). It's my 1st forray into the luxury market so I don't anticipate the driving experience to be a huge deal to me. Not looking at mileage (looking for a 7500 mile/yr lease).
funny thing is, I almost posted an OT thread a few days ago over the holiday, but didn't

his lipstick resume as HC only looks good on the pig that is M football.
would I have traded the last 7 under RR & Hoke for Pelini? You betcha.
But do I expect better than pelini and his performance as HC from M in the future? hell yes.

This is 100% on Schlissel, and I'm not terribly worried. From all we have heard from the Pres,
1) He's willing to take his time to get the AD right. It's not a corporation and who cares if Microsoft can get a CEO in less than 6 months? POTUM will learn about the culture of the U, the AD and the candidates (with help from Hacket). He'll make his decision from there based on all available info: not jus tthe BS message board list of 4-6 guys with M ties. Isn't that what you DON'T want: a list of JUST Michigan Men? We need a guy who can work within POTUMs ideas of how an AD should be run, not just a successful guy with ties to M.
2) the interim timeline is what people are mistaking: it's not permanent, obvs - Hackett won't be the AD in 4-5 years. But it's also not a 2-6 month thing either. There are 2 reasons for this: A) POTUMs ideals about hiring the right guy (See 1 above) and B) they need to hire a football coach 1st, so that's where Hackett time is being spent right now- he has to research, negotiate, hire, and see the coach thru the transition. that is necessarily a year long type of process.
adjust your own personal def'ns of interim to 8-20 months and you'll be OK, people

Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
Islam is at the top of the list

sure, there are tons of groups that one could make that comment about. but the point is, in this context of university greek life:
With or without the greek system you would have good people doing good acts and evil people doing evil acts. But for (previously apparently) good people to commit evil acts, that takes an institutionalized system of peer acceptance of such acts. That institutionalized system is the greek system.*
*again, in this context. I'm sure other institutions would lead to similar situations- sports clubs, etc.
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||no one is arguing that frats||
no one is arguing that frats contriubte 100% of all rape or hazing incidents, nor that removing them will prevent all future such incidents on earth.
but within the contrained borders of a university community (or universities as a whole) the greek system generates a culture more inclined to such behavior that would never remotely be considered tolerable among peers (college educated young adults) outside of the frat culture.
is it possible that individuals could conspire to do this without a gree system in place? sure. but there wouldn't be an existing institutional structure that is set up to shelter/shield/normalize- these activities. And there certainly wouldn't be an organizational culture that would defend (<--lack of a better word) the behavior on their behalf.
Imagine there was a group of 7 males who just got together to conspire to commit this act (w/o a greek system involved)? we would be asking what types of conditions these people were in to think that this was an OK thing to do.

so, without the frat context, the pledging scenario or the hazing culture, these guys would have thought it ok to gang rape a girl and somehow found a way to do it anyway (allegedly)?

Name an ethical statement made or action performed by a frat in the name of "fraternity" that couldn't have been without the frat. And name, if you can (this is easier) a wicked action that could only be done in the frat "culture."

I get the sense that the players have hear Good Job a whole hell of a lot under Hoke.
