Memorial Day 2007

A thank you to all of those who are not here today from all of the Wars.

Went to the MFA today since it was free admission. It was my first time checking out the collection. Some pretty decent paintings and some cool Chinese artifacts. I'll hopefully post some of the photos later.

Diet tips from the 1500 Century 5.17.7

Leonardo Da Vinci suggests:

If you want to be healthy observe this regime.
Do not eat when you have no appetite, and dine lightly,
Chew well, and whatever you take into you
Should be well-cooked and of simple ingredients
He who takes medicine is ill advised.
Beware anger and avoid stuffy air.
Stay standing a while when you get up from a meal.
Make sure you do not sleep at midday.
Let your wine be mixed with water, take little and often,
Not between meals, not on an empty stomach.
Neither delay nor prolong your visit to the toilet.
If you take exercise, let it not be too strenuous.
Do not lie with your stomach upward and your head
Downward. Be well covered at night,
And rest your head and keep your mind cheerful.
Avoid wantonness and keep to this diet.

Rough trip to Foxwoods over the weekend. Although I almost picked the winner of the Kentucky Derby in my wager on the horse. 2nd Place Hard Spun led pretty much throughout the race only to fall to second down the stretch.

Random links:

Interesting triva link if you know origins.

Harvard Classics. Reading considerations.

Training for running.

Center for Intertnational Studies

Poker odds. Obvioulsy I need to study that one a little more to find out how poor my luck really was. SO MANY BAD RIVER BEATS!

User Interface. Tools from Yahoo!

Sim City. Classic game of city development.

NBA Refs 5.2.7

If most of the NBA players are black, the odds are the refs will end up calling more fouls on them no matter the race of the ref. Some paper makes headlines for showing that calls are favoring the few white players. I haven't read it yet, but I'm guessing more black players play the game than white.
