land O links

Here are a few links for your enjoyment.

  1. The New York Times has a nice story about how an engineer and devoted father invented the sippy cup in the 80s because he hated cleaning up spills.
  2. The best way to teach kids about math and science? Zombies. (I knew it!)
  3. You won’t believe how insanely detailed this guy’s fictional maps are. [A Wired article].
  4. Before Sabermetrics, there was the Complete Handbook of Baseball: a NYT article about a sports statistician
  5. When doing a little googling to prepare for a talk I am giving for the Women in Engineering luncheon at CASE 2013, I revisited a post by Anna Nagurney on being an advocate for female researchers. Embedded in the post is a link to a white paper about the difference between mentors and advocates. This is a real gem and should be read by men and women.
  6. I love the bard! If Shakespeare wrote Star Wars:
    • Leia: Darth Vader, only thou couldst be so bold.
      When first my ship was under siege, I knew
      ‘Twas thee who have this peaceful vessel sack’d.
  7. I can’t resist tetris references. This adorable Safety Endangered comic strip made my day a little brighter:

"Tetris" by @EndangeredComic: on Twitpic
