Just had to inject some estrogen into this conversation. Over the years I turned my little football fan into Napoleon, Paul Revere, a Civil War soldier; and his sister into Jane Austen and a living American Girl Doll.

A 30-34 25-75 percentile ACT split implies that 25% of the accepted class had a 35 or 36. A brief internet search says that .38% of ACT scores are 35 and .076 are 36. in 2013, the latest date for which I could find info, 1,666,017 took the ACT.

There is a 97% occupancy rate and there must be half a dozen major rehabs underway that will easily pay for themselves because the purchase price is so low

I know a lot of trash has been talked in the direction of the Title Nine directives but he next time you are inclined to complain about it, remember that tonight would never have happened without the resources made available to women's sports when Title Nine was passed.

|4 weeks 6 days ago||1) My dad and 2) my husband||
My dad grew up in the Depression on a little post stamp farm in Ohio. No electricity no plumbing and horses for the plows. He got himself a pilots license in high school during the war and just after, through an endless series of hitchhiked rides and bus transfers. He went to Korea, came back, and worked his way to become a college professor. He raised four amazing kids. He had a heart attach at 52 and in the subsequent 35 years has run or walked six days a week. He gave me the courage to change careers in my twenties and becomes a college professor myself.

Congrats to y'all - there are plenty of published authors who would not be disappointed with those numbers. It's the traditional publishing industry's loss and, I hope, your gain.

Small residential island back behind Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame. Pass by the left of the cathedral and keep going until you go over a pedestrian bridge. There is one main street down the spine of the island. Rue St Louis. The further down you go the better it gets, especially just past Rue des Deux Ponts. Search this neighborhood on Yelp there is a lot

Not that its matters anymore but apparently four of the third place teams go through; however at least before Sweden v Australia there was a scenario in which we were third and left behind

Off Bar Harbour. We were watching Superman and the fog rolled in. Couldn't see the screen. Then Lois Lane fell into a crevasse during the earthquake. Is she dead? What will happen? In he next scene suddenly Superman is flying two villains directly into the hands of justice. No Lois. The End.

Give football players a non-football responsibility, other than in the classroom, no. What do you propose the players STOP doing in order to hone their design skills?
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Yes but||
Also that we are not alone. Crazy shit happens to lots of people. So many people have survived

This is the third earthquake since I moved here in 1998 from California. For the most part these small ones in the 4 range are felt by transplanted Californians

Commencement at least for my part of the U is Fri May 1st.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Right, swimming!||
And gymnastics !
|16 weeks 5 days ago||That seems about right to me||
The stands were occupied most of the way up, but not with any density - people spread out and there were lots of holes. My guess was 30k

|18 weeks 6 days ago||Good start but wrong stat||
Your conclusion (na gonna happen) is fine but I don't think we want the chance of a particular given person choosing correctly (147.57 quintillion) but of SOME person doing so - the chance of the event happening at all.
We've got 11.57 million tickets to the "perfect bracket" lottery on ESPN alone. So one way of calculating the chance of someone getting a perfect bracket on ESPN are presumably .....ohf*ck someone else calculate it for me.
But this is still not right, because we are not picking a truly random event. It would only be the right calculation if Kentucky vs. Hampton etc had a 50/50 outcome.
Imagine I, a middle-aged college professor with a negative vertical leap, were playing a competitive game of HORSE v. Trey Burke. And yall were betting on it. Lots of people would win that one, not just 50%, because the outcome would not be a random event. Now imagine Trey Burke is playing vs. 63 middle-aged professors in a bracket. The probability of a winning bracket existingn would not be 1 out of 147.57 quintillion.

This makes me feel old.
Good advice, though!

They are reasonably wise to material being passed among applicants. There's software for that kind of thing
