07/22/2015 - 2:41am Root Cause?

Several laws have been changed that affect the schools and no one seems to mention those.  

1. The law passed giving public funding to private schools for parents who choose to send their kids there.

2. School of choice.

3. The increased number of charter schools compeating for enrollment. (Not sure if a law led to this or not)


09/07/2014 - 11:12pm Defending the Slant Pass

Defend: DB follows the Slant route keeping the reciever in front of him.  This allows the arm closest to the reciever to reach in front of the reciever and knock the ball away.  If that fails, at least they are in position to make the tackle.

Intercept: DB must undercut the route (Run a more shallow route than the reciever, placing himself in between the QB and reciever.)  This allows the DB to break up the pass or intercept.  However, it also takes him out of position to make the tackle, or continue the coverage if the route wasn't a Slant.

This is what I was taught in HS.  Can anyone with College level experience elaborate?

Used in electronics (like a computer) to be either "on" or "off"...  aka "1" or "0".  Basically how the computer actually speaks binary.

07/22/2013 - 10:10pm Your move Urban

I noticed while reading the posts at 11W that no one asked why Urban Meyer didn't do something like this.  Almost like they can't acknowledge that thier coach was check mated here.

Last I saw, the Wings beat the number 2 seed and took the eventual Stanley Cup winning Blackhawks (Number 1 seed) to 7 games and OT.  And that was a "Rebuilding Team."  I don't think you can possibly name a better sports organization than the Red Wings.

Any metal that is struck by photons (light) will produce an electric charge.  This is actually what Albert Einstein won his Nobel Prize for.  Basically, the photon strikes an electron which increases the energy level of that electron sufficently enough for it to leave the "electron cloud".

I connected with a staffing company after I graduated from Michigan with my Aero Eng Degree.  They got me interviews right away and job offers started rolling in.  

Email me and I'll hook you up:

06/15/2013 - 12:02am Fix the schools first.

I live in Ann Arbor but work in Detroit.  I've thought about what it would take for me to consider moving to an ok neighborhood in Detroit and the answer was "The Schools".  If the State and local governments can fix the schools, make them some of the best in the Michigan, then I think we would see an influx of younger families who work in the area or immigrants who are moving to the US.

06/12/2013 - 6:35pm First man to walk in Space

Ed White (Michigan Grad) was the first man to walk in space.  Gemini 4 and Apollo 15 were all U of M crews.  

I also read that Apollo 15 arranged a formation of rocks on the moon in the shape of a certain letter of the alphabet.
