Marianne Williamson or Nelson Mandela?

“Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘who am I to be so brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’ Actually, who are we not to be? You are a child of God: Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” This quote is cited as being written by Marianne Williamson by some, and by Nelson Mandela by others.

Well so math classes as you well know build upon each other and this is where I am at with Math:

1010: Intermediate Algebra > 1050: College Algebra > 1100: Calculus

MS Word 2007 Has Citations and a Bibliography

Finally MS Word 2007 has Citations and a Bibliography, in fact it has a lot more than that. I mean it is a APA, MLA, Chicago formatting machine.

I was actually thinking about doing a plug in for Word or some sort of importing tool for college students (since I am one), last year. I even introduced the idea to Paul Allen and did some research found out about End Note how high priced it was, $300 or something outrageous amount. End Note was targeted toward professional writers like Ph.D.’s My Professor Dr. Peter Robinson at UVSC’s Business School, told me about the neat features it has and so forth.

John Sperling, Educator and Entrepreneur

Apparently John Sperling started his entrepreneur career a little later than some, at the age of 55. While some people of his generation were retiring John was just getting started. Who is John Sperling, you ask well today he is a billionaire after a huge IPO. It took 18 years to get that IPO and several hard fought battles against an American tradition which was sorely outdated.
