Graduate School: My Rite of Passage to the World of PhDís
It was my second year in graduate school.
I couldnít believe how nervous I was, and no matter how slowly I tried to breathe my hands were shaking and I felt like I lost my voice.
I was sitting (or trying to sit) in my departmentís office to be called in for the oral part of my qualifying exam.
I knew that in the previous year they failed 20% of the students, and I had studied for nearly 2 months for this exam.

Decluttering your gadgets
Itís still early in the year, which is often a good time to start fresh by doing some decluttering ó and not just of our homes and workspaces. What about the gadgets we use daily: our computers, tablets, and phones?
I was reminded that this is a good practice late last month, when I read Anthony Karczís ďRing in the New Year With a Decluttered iPhone.Ē Though he focuses specifically on the iPhone, he makes a key point that applies to other phones as well ó and to computers and tablets:
Old apps, especially those forgotten by their developers, are threats.
If you donít regularly use an a...
