Holy Cow! I think they may just “go paperless”

Holy Cow! I think they may just “go paperless”

Could this be the year?

For the love of everything Harry Caray, this might be the year the Cubs finally win the World Series. Cubs’ fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time—since 1908. A little Internet research can tell you there are probably 350 people walking the planet who were alive to see the last Cubs’ championship (None of them actually saw it because TV hadn’t been invented yet). Everyone else has literally been waiting their entire life to see the Cubs to win the big one.

Patience and focus.

I love watching competition – especially Olympic competition. For a couple of weeks, it was all Olympics, all the time.  I was totally ok with that.

Even for events that I only pay attention to a few days every four years, like trampoline, I can’t not watch.  In fact, I think trampolining would be the official sport of IOS. Why?  Same blueprint for success.

You don’t know what you don’t know

How often have you said there should be a law for that, only to realize that it already is a law, then you begin to wonder if anyone ever reads these things.

I read about this last week, and it’s stuck with me ever since.

The Brooks Act, also known as qualifications based selection (QBS), is a law that has been on the books since the 70’s. It makes it illegal for federal buyers to use price as any part of the decision process when selecting architects or engineers for government projects.

What a novel idea…buy on value not solely on cost.

Merkilegt is the Icelandic word for remarkable. Did you know there is a major international soccer tournament going on right now and the team from Iceland is the headline for how well they are playing? The backstory is remarkable. Iceland has about 330,000 people and here it is competing on the world stage against the giants in the sport.  If Iceland was a city in Indiana, it would be the 2nd largest in the state.  Additionally, coaching the team is a part-time job.  When the coach isn’t coaching, he’s a dentist.

Apparently the people at Scripps are a little solicitous.

That means worried – except harder to spell.

Scripps is the major player in the sport of professional spelling.  I know, I know.  The competition is on ESPN, so it must be a sport – discussion for a different day.

I read an article predicting doom for the future of the National Spelling Bee because the competitors are getting too good.  The contest ended in a tie.  Again.  There have been more ties in the past 3 years than in the previous 90 years of The Bee.  Of all the words in the universe, they couldn’t come up with a few that the 11-13 year olds couldn’t spell.  That’s crazydiculous. (I don’t know if that is a real word but if it is, I am sure that’s how you spell it).
