I hear this word NERD a lot on campus. Do you know the etymology of NERD???

The etymology of NERD:

Earlier spelling of the term is “Nurd” and the original spelling is “Knurd”, but the pronunciation has remained the same. The term originated at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the late 1940s. Students who partied, and rarely studied were called “Drunks”, while the opposite — students who never partied and always studied were “Knurd” (“Drunk” spelled backwards). The term was also (independently) used in a Dr. Seuss book and on the TV show Happy Days, giving it international popularity….

This Farmer Needs Some Help!!!

A farmer has to get a corn, a chicken, and a fox across a river. The farmer is only able to bring one of the above items along with him at a time. The only problem is if he leaves the fox alone with the chicken, the fox will eat the chicken, and if he leaves the chicken along the corn sack, then the chicken will eat the corn sack. How does the farmer get all 3 items across safely?

Help Pleaseeee!!!!

This Week

Someday I have so much to do and someday nothing to do. I like being busy rather than doing nothing and sitting.

This week was full of stress. Last weekend I had good time with Out Door Activity Club, CCBC Essex. Day started with Hiking, followed by bowling and ended with Go Track.

This Week started with my Materials of Mechanics Exam. I thought I had the worst exam ever for my Materials of Mechanics class but I was happy when I saw the grade. I made a higher “A” with second highest grade in the class.

I had my Differential Equation exam on Thursday. Since there is a festival going on I could not focus in exam and school. There are lots of guest in the house and something always going on. I planned to stay on campus and study for my exam. But at around 10:30 pm on Wednesday, Public Safety chased me saying “Campus is closed, we need to empty the building”. I had no other option than saying OK, and ride back to home.

When I reached home, party was going on. I could not go upstairs and study. I hanged out a little bit and went to bed at around 2:00 AM. I woke up at 5:30 AM and was on campus by 6:15 AM.  I got some time to study for the exam but was having a severe headache. After the exam was over, I had to work from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

I had my Health Class from 2:20 PM to 3:40 PM. I was broke by then. I reached home around 6:00 PM, fixed something to eat and crashed in my bed.

I woke up this morning around 7:00 AM after 12.00 hours of sleep. I was late to my 8:00 AM Calculus III class. I have my Calculus III Exam on Monday, so some of my classmate decided to get together and do group study this weekend to get ready for the exam. I said I will try to make it.

Now, I am here at Student Success Center, CCBC Essex sitting in front of the computer having nothing to do. I know I have an exam on Monday but don’t feel like studying. Just waiting for 2:00 PM, so I can attend the Student Ambassador Meeting and go home and enjoy TIHAR festival and party.

Gregory Smith: Nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize at age 12

Born in 1990, Gregory Smith could read at age two and had enrolled in university at 10. But “genius” is only one half of the Greg Smith story. When not voraciously learning, this young man travels the globe as a peace and children’s rights activist.
He is the founder of International Youth Advocates, an organization that promotes principles of peace and understanding among young people throughout the world. He has met with Bill Clinton and Mikhail Gorbachev and spoke in front of the UN. For these and other humanitarian and advocacy efforts, Smith has been nominated four times for a Nobel Peace Prize. His latest achievement???? He just got his driver license.

Can you SOLVE this RIDDLE?????

You approach two talking doors. One door leads to the City of Truth, while the other door leads to the City of Liars. You do not know which door is which. You are able to ask only one question to determine which door is which. The door that leads to the City of Liars always speaks lies, while the door that leads to the City of Truth always speaks the truth. You want to go to the City of Truth. What question do you ask to determine which door leads to the City of Truth….

Sapporo Dome

Sapporo (A commercial city in northern Japan on western Hokkaido) stadium Seating capacity of 42,122, and what’s unique about this Stadium is that, it’s an indoor stadium with the playing field outside, and when required, the field will move inside the stadium… and not only that, the field once inside it will rotate within its axis to ensure the spectators will get an all-round view of the game being played…

The highly advanced and technological stadium ‘Sapporo Dome’ is a multifunctional and innovative framework that is able to easily transform itself from a football (soccer) stadium into a baseball park as seen at the image.

The system is as simple as it is sophisticated. Raised on a pneumatic system, the playing field is made to rotate and pass through a mechanized 90 meter opening of two moving walls. The field can either be placed in an artificial basin below the stadium or transported outside where the grass can grow naturally. The whole transformation process takes only 5 hours to complete.

The stadium was constructed by a group led by architect Hiroshi Hara. It has the shape of a large ’8′ which is created from the union of the two lengthened circumferences. One of these circumferences constitutes the actual stadium: the arena is characterized by a single ring of continuous tiers which form a circle around the conical surface. Tribunes are automatically moved throughout the field depending on the sport – a rectangular tribune is used for a soccer field, by rotating the tribunes a diamond shape is formed for baseball.

The dome was inaugurated on 02 June 2001 and also serves as a meeting place for local citizens, consequently the stadium is nicknamed ‘Hiroba’ (the public square). Moreover, the stadium offers a great attraction, namely the existence of a 53 meter high cupola from where there is a beautiful view over the city. From the outside, the stadium looks like a futuristic complex thanks to the aerodynamic shape that can open and close depending on climatic conditions.
