I get what you're saying but these guys are still young kids. A visit can wow them and they may decide to commit based on emotions without really thinking things through. Teenagers are not the most clear thinkers at all times. After all, how many times did you fall in love after a kiss only to notice someone else a few days later? Sometimes for these kids it's simply love the one your with...

That was last year and not in the TFA data. None of those schools were in last year's top ten; but 3 left top 10 schools. UCF at 11/12 was the closest to a top 10 finish and got a transfer QB. 

Like I said, there will be anomalies but I suspect in most cases the transfer will be to a lower tier school rather than a top program.

Looking at the transfer data in TFA, it seems the real beneficiaries in most cases are what I would call lower tier schools.  They probably don't have as good a starter as the transfer guy and thus are viewed as desirable locations if a kid wants to play. I think the Hurts / Fields are more anomalies than a portent of things to come.

Just be sure your fake classes are available to non-athletes and then there are no violations. Cal Poly should have simply given everyone cash for their books.

It was undergoing renovations at the time, so it is possible it was accidentally started by a worker.  From the photos it appears the fire staretd in the top where renovations were underway; but that is pure speculation on my part.

Hans shot first. When that was changed SW jumped the shark.

Friz Haber's story is amazing. He developed and oversaw the use of chemical warfare in WWI as a German Army officer in command of a specail gas unit (where 3 future Nobel laurates served under him) and was later forced to flee Germany when the Nazi's came into power because he was Jewish.

The Haber - Bisch process for fixing Nitrogen was also critcial for munitions production.

He was quite the academic and conrtibute dothe rnotworthy ideas as well to chemistry.

He was mentioned in the History Channel's Einstein series, and whilk ehis first wife did kill herself, which some attribute to her opposing the development of chemicl weapos, it was not as shown on TV.

Trip down memory lane. I was in the Tidewater area in early 80's. Met my wife at Sing A Long with Pappy Walsh at Little Creek. Her dad was stationed their with NATO and she was a student at ODU. ODU was still a small school downtown. My (illegal) radar detector always went off going through the tunnel between Norfolk and Newport News.

Top Ports: Lisbon and Wilhelmshaven.

Fair winds and following seas, Senior Chief.

I took modern dance. As an engineer, being one of the few guys in a class full of women was very attractive; and you didn't have to be an engineer to do the math.

I have one. I'm an old school mechanical watch guy but have found my Apple Watch very useful. I'm still learning al its features but as others have mentioned it's nice to be able to see texts, get alerts without using your phone. I particularly use the wallet feature to keep my boarding passes and TSA/airline simply scans the watch.

As for the EKG, it sounds like you're getting good advice from your MD. From what I've been able to find out, It's more of an indicator than an accurate EKG; which makes sense sine it is apparently only using 1 wire to get a reading. I can see where it would be very useful to send one to your MD if you think you have a problem.

I use Tmobile and the give you free data (2G) in many countries overseas. That is very useful for getting texts, using Skype, etc. With the miltary discount their plans are pretty cheap as well.

Enjoy your vacation.
