I was looking for a 3 row vehicle last year.  We have 2 kids, and just wanted an occasional 3rd row for carpooling, or when the grandparents were visiting.  We were looking for a small 3 row SUV, but we ended up with an Honda Odyssey.  It cost less than pilot, highlander, or similar sized SUV, it got better mileage, it was easier to access the 3rd row, and the sliding doors are much easier to use the garage. So… now I drive a minivan to work.  Plus, since the Odyssey is due for a new model next year, it should be even cheaper than when we got it.

We're you on the civil side. I felt the same way with my civil classes, but it seemed that the environmental profs were more involved in teaching... That was also 20 years ago... But alot of the names are the same.

I'm a Mich CEE grad. I was on the civil side, but took some environmental classes and had environmental engineering friends through Chi Epsilon. I thought the environmental profs I had were excellent.

I don't live in Ann Arbor, but go there to recruit CEE grads for new hires. We get excellent candidates from the program.

Make the cleats worse.  We can make revisions to the helmet, but the brain is still banging around the skull when the head  abruptly stops moving.  That acceleration/decleration can only be modified so much by adding padding.   Reduce the impact force, by reducing the ability of the defender to launch themselves. 

You could add offense by having different cleats for offensive and defensive players.  That would be better for the game than adding ticky-tack pass interference penalties.

If you want to protect a building from an earthquake, you can make it stronger...or you can base isolate it.
