Nice time of rest?!?!

I hope everyone got a bit of rest over spring break. I’m know that many of you work outside of school, but at least you didn’t have to read any juvenile delinquency chapters;)

Last, week I traveled to the Upper Peninsula (UP) and spent the week at a cabin next to Lake Superior. We’ve been traveling to the Rock Cut Cabin for many years now and love it. You can rent it by clicking HERE. The UP is a beautiful place and Marquette is a very nice city. Below are some pictures I took:

Yesterday we hiked a short segment of the Ice Age Trail in the Kettle Moraine. Perfect day for a hike.

For this week’s post, share something fun you did your break.

Sucker, er, I mean, Soccer Punch?

I readily admit that I’m not a soccer fan. I don’t have any ill-will toward the sport; rather, I’ve just never followed it. So it may/may not be surprising to hear that a fan jumped out onto the field of a pro soccer game and punched one of the visiting players in the back of the head. Read the article by clicking HERE

Like I said, maybe this kind of stuff happens alot in professional soccer games. It just seems ridiculous to me. First, whomever is in charge of security at this venue should be fired. Period. The fact that his guy was able to run all the way from the stands and onto the field (which is very wide) is crazy. Secondly, the guy who has been arrested should NEVER be able to enter a professional soccer game for the rest of his life. I mean, if you can’t control your anger at a SPORTING EVENT, then, well, I don’t just know…

Now, I’m not saying this guy should spend a year in jail, although there should be a criminal sanction.


A Lucrative Independent Study?

This week’s story (click HERE for video) focuses on a professor who allegedly stole a drug formula from a student during a university research project. Apparently it was a creative formula as it is estimated to be worth upwards of 10 million in royalties. The professor claims that the formula was already under patent when the student came to work on the project. But it’s serious enough for the university to file a suit against the professor. Seems like a pretty complex case to me. Thoughts?
