Another Vacation

Today marks the end of Maymester. Two weeks of classes, four hours at a time, every day. And did I say anything about the HUGE amount of reading and MANY papers that had to be written? Of course, anyone who takes a Maymester class ought to understand that the workload is going to be heavy. Here’s the bottom line: it was a great course, and I was, once again, caught up in the energy of learning that seems to permeate every class I take. Thank you, Professor H…….

Now, to attend to the grass, the dirty windows, the files scattered everywhere in my study center (2nd bedroom, begrudgingly allowed by the wife), and some rest and relaxation. School starts again on Tuesday, and I’ll be raring to go!

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
