lol @ Neo Pantisocrat: if you speak French, then Quebec City is a wonderful place. In Montreal, as is the case for all of Quebec, they of course speak French as their first language, too, but it's more cosmopolitan such that you shouldn't have any difficulties if you don't speak French fluently. In terms of "hot", well, I may be biased as a Canadian but, frankly, this is a good-looking country for the most part. In Montreal especially, where people are very active and...
^ I agree. Whilst it is OK for a woman to wear a black suit to an interview, it isn't considered appropriate for a man to do. There are a lot of rules tied to this, primarily b/c the colour black is, outside the clergy and judiciary (who are robed), reserved for formal wear. So, unless you're interviewing for a judicial/priest/etc. position, I'd caution against a black suit for an interview, and instead opt for a blue suit (synonymous with leadership, safety and loyalty,...

I put them in all my boots. You don't need anything fancy per se (regular trees will do), but do use the cedar ones which, in addition to dealing with creases/retaining shape, help to keep your boots fresh whilst absorbing moisture (your boots are...
Quote: Originally Posted by in stitches he is an accomplished attorney, so like 26ish Just a quick note--the average age of a first-year entry-level law student is older than 26 (it was about that 15 years ago actually, 27 to be exact in the US); today's entry-level JD student is much older than that, so perhaps you mean 46-plus? Ah, the profession: where else can one be turning 45 and still be considered a "young professional" -- most...
+1 to the vast majority of songs listed. @ Duran, but in a good way. I saw them in concert, initially opening for Blondie b/f they became a so-called super band, thus deserving a mention, I agree. I laugh though b/c, when I saw them the second time, only thing audible was a gazillion screaming girls, all with big hair and blue eye shadow (thinking back, it was funny). But Duran's 1st album was rather good--i.e., Planet Earth, Girls on Film, etc., I agree! +...

Ah, but those Rockies. Recall one year, boiling to death in the humidity (anywhere North-East/Niagara...
SField, I am not certain what to say, other than to say how sorry I am for you, too. That you are in shock and hurting is entirely normal. Although it may seem hard right now, no matter what emotions you are feeling, please remember that it is not your fault, and that there is no need for you to be embarassed. Rather, surround yourself with strong friends and family members at this time, and above all else allow yourself time to heal. It also helps to talk about it, to let...
Excellent idea for a thread, NYR; and great question, Deadly. I'm a lawyer and prof in the area of IP (i.e., patents, trademarks, copyright, entertainment, etc.). After years of practice, I lectured (adjunct) whilst providing advice for a university. I loved it so much that I'm in the process of transitioning into academia full time. While it entails a "pay cut" from private practice (not a minor consideration, Rugger, comparative to industry, and trust you will agree),...

I've seen copyright suits won for a lot less. Actually, what Recoil says as it relates to Copyright Law is correct. While titles, names, slogans and short phrases may be the subject of a trademark (provided strict statutory and/or commonlaw requirements are met), they...
It's, Regional and university norms play a part, as does the fact that you are not just a student but also a TA. In your role as a TA, how you dress affects the learning environment and yet profs of science and math related disciplines in general (but by no means always) --and students especially--are not exactly known for sartorial flair. To be fair, it's also true of many profs teaching outside the professional schools (but again, not always). This, unless their...
