Yes. The date today is very cool like that, as several people’s facebook statuses have informed me.
In personal news, I have been snowed in with my family for 4 days now. Imagine that scenario. Then add 5 cats. We ran out of cheese and diet coke yesterday so the parents ventured forth for essentials like those, and avocado sushi. I have accidentally trodden upon 2 kittens today, and if they continue to shed on my clean laundry, there might be some more “accidents” in their future.
Today is a light day (as in I had to dig around instead of just summing up my blogroll), kind of NYTimes centric.
At least in New England.
Harvard, who has come under scrutiny because of their problem of (exceedingly influential) professors sitting on well-paying (>$200,000/yr) board of Pfeizer, etc, has now capped the outside pay their professors and researchers can earn and still retain their positions. Score one for the purity of research and prescription!
Read this if you got quarantined, or know someone who did.
One of my favorite things. What, you thought I was going to pay for my copy of “Party in the USA”? Pah. This converts the audio of a youtube video into a downloadable MP3. The quality isn’t too great, but it’s better than the non-existent bass by former converter “Media Converter.”
Here’s hoping the snow lets up…
