How to Explain the Use of Specialized Equipment [Apr. 20th, 2014|10:00 pm]

Much of the time I was "on stage" as a cast member at Walt Disney World, I had a collaspible chrome pointer with me. I started using it when I was a trainer, but found it to be a great way to get and hold people's attention, which any cast member will tell you, is a large part of the job.

And now it’s time for your final chance to win a signed copy of the new edition of Off to Be the Wizard (Magic 2.0). In addition to that book, the prize package will also include the Basic Instructions 2014 Box Calendar, and a signed copy of a book by a different author. This week, the bonus book is The Cancer of my Convictions, by Chris Lundgren. It reminded me of Generation of Swine by Hunter S. Thompson.

You can enter below by friending Off to Be the Wizard on Facebook, following me on Twitter, or by answering a simple question (see widget below for all three options.)

Sadly, the offer is only open to people in the United States. Shipping costs, what can I say? The contest closes on, April 25th at 12am. Thanks, and good luck!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Exercise bike! Now I can exercise while reading a book (have tried, it works) which is basically my dream. Also while watching Masterchef. My crap knee is still generally sounding like a bowl of rice krispies, but biking seems to stop it getting stiff and achy, so hooray.

Walmartisation of academia [Apr. 20th, 2014|11:22 am]

This post published in 'Hightower lowdown' about the "Walmartisation" of the aspiring academic made for a rather depressing read. Has the state of American academia already spread to other parts of the world? Would unionisation help, or is it merely a minor delay to the inevitable?

Maybe I should abandon the increasingly unrealistic dream...

For those curious, this post was encountered in the 'Diaspora' network; see here

With the injustices and corruption in this world, perhaps law school is exactly where we need heroes.

100% Beef [Apr. 18th, 2014|03:00 pm]

Does McDonald's buy their meat from a company called '100% Beef,' which allows them to legally but deceptively claim they use 100% beef in their hamburgers?
