September 2012 I sometimes feel as if I am overly engaged with my domestic space. I think long and hard about how each day is orchestrated and often obsess about pockets of light, fleeting images, as well as the work at hand or under foot. This – all in conjunction with having a family and (lovingly) balancing the needs and desires of those around me. You would really laugh if you saw how I weave my hours together. The methods are rather unorthodox and the cool rhythm? 'Organic' for lack of a better term.

Ideas for Startups October 2005 (This essay is derived from a talk at the 2005 Startup School.) How do you get good ideas for startups? That's probably the number one question people ask me. I'd like to reply with another question: why do people think it's hard to come up with ideas for startups?

What sewing machine I use and why One of the most common questions I get asked about my work is "What sewing machine do you use?". People seem to assume that I have some wiz-bang-space-aged machine that does all of the thinking (and sewing) for me, but in reality I only use some of the most basic machine functions to allow me to draw with the machine. It is for this reason that my technique can be done on almost any sewing machine.

Education Guardian What will I learn?Psychology is the study of the human mind to better understand how andwhy people act the way they do. So, you might find yourself investigating how people become anorexic, how seemingly calm people turn violent, or why people prefer chocolate to sex (at least sometimes).

"The Washington Monthly College Guide " by The Editors This month, U.S. News & World Report releases its annual rankings of colleges. First published in 1983, the guide has become its own mini-event: College presidents, education reporters, alumni, parents, and high school juniors alike all scramble to get their hands on the rankings. Its release is followed by weeks of gloating from the top-ranked schools and grumbling from those schools that dropped a slot (or 14) from the previous year. Inspired by the popularity, other guides—from Princeton Review to Peterson's to Kaplan—have rushed to compete. College rankings are now so influential that universities and higher-education journals hold regular chin-stroking sessions about whether the numbers-game has too much influence over the way schools behave.

GPA Federal and state regulations governing student financial aid programs require the college to ensure that each student who is receiving financial aid maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward the student's degree. The SAP check occurs after grades are posted each spring semester. Failure to meet the standards of satisfactory academic progress (see Academic Progress) may disqualify a student from additional federal, state and institutional financial aid. A student may appeal the nonsatisfactory academic progress status and be placed on probation for financial aid purposes.
