Professors often belittle their students for procrastination. From the inbox: Many of you may be aware that we have seen performance issues today in AsULearn. In an effort to isolate the issue, we will temporarily restrict the process of import/restore to the non-peak hours between 5PM and 9AM each weekday. The AsULearn service will still be available 24/7; only the teacher's ability to import/restore course materials is being time-limited.

Meeting Marshallia

Cool Green Science

Anyone who feels an attachment to a place takes pride in the rare, endangered or threatened wild things that survive within it. Several rare or declining species inhabit that Laurel Highlands region and the Youghiogheny Gorge where I like to fish, hike , cross-country ski, canoe, hunt deer, and watch birds. Sandstone cliffs and outcrops are habitat for Allegheny woodrats and green salamanders. Timber rattlesnakes bask on those rocks, too.

And, But, Therefore (SEA meeting mini-debrief)

Environmental Economics

Once again, IMHO , the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings were a big success. The highlight for me (other than meeting all of the new economists) was the panel "Top Ten Tips for Young Economists: Teaching, Research and Service."   The call for abstracts for the AERE sessions at the SEA meetings in NOLA (!) AERE sponsored 15 sessions, an all time high. I attended X of these and each one had an audience between 15 and 25 (with one exception).
