Hero Honda – De-merger gone bad?

Helen Beard, 44, of Worksop, England, was at an Econo Lodge Inn pool in Orlando when she saw a small child dangling from the balcony. She ran to a spot directly under Jah-Nea Myles and caught Jah-Nea and broke her fall before the child slipped from her arms and hit the ground. The child’s mother said that there was not a scratch on the child’s body. More details on this story here.
What an accomplishment for Helen – I am sure she is proud of herself. On the same note, thousands of doctors and other health care workers should also be proud of everyone they have saved, even though their work gets less headline coverage.
I am sure Andrew Strauss and Jonty Rhodes are thinking – What a catch!

Doing a rideshare on I-66 gives me a lot of time to look at vanity plates on days when I am the passenger. Here are some recent ones:
- “SK GR8NS”- I have been seeking goodness for a long time, and now perhaps it is time to move from good to great.
- “SOYDPR” – Does this mean “Soy de Puerto Rico”? Si? Que bueno. Soy de la India. Mucho gusto. Nunca estuve en Puerto Rico, pero me gustaría visitarlo.
- “PHYZX 4 U” – Sounds good. I will let you know when I have a sudden urge to refresh my understanding of Navier-Stokes equations.
- “CRE8 LV” – The reverse (Love Creates) is true as well
- “NYC 212″ – Perhaps based on this, I should have “FFX 703″
- “13PT1 R” – Well, well, half a marathon is something to be very proud of – (Thanks to my good friend Bo for pointing this out).
- “XHT QA6″ – This I didn’t understand. Any help is appreciated.

According to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the judges’ lunch and the timing of your case may be more important than perhaps even your lawyer. If reading academic articles is your forte, then here is the link. Otherwise, here is a bit more attractive presentation, thanks to the hard working reporters who leave no stone unturned in bringing those astonishingly boring academic studies home for us lay people.
