West Chester — September 28, 2016 — The Westtown Resort team yesterday introduced Westtown Resort 3.0 (“Resort”), the most powerful and reliable school calendar management system available to Westtown students and teachers yet.
You are using the same cup, making the same amount of coffee out of the same coffee machine. Why does your coffee cool down faster than it does in the summer? Of course you’d say that is because winter is much colder, but shouldn’t coffee cool down at some constant rate? like maybe 4°F every minute or something?
“It’s good work”
Over the past few years I’ve worked on many different products and projects; from the glass blowing machine that is hopefully still working away at some secret US facility, to an alarm clock I finished coding last weekend, to any number of robotics parts and mechanical installations. Whenever asked what these are like, my response has always been simple; “It’s good work”.
I do not pretend to know for a second what good work is, or that the things that I have built have influenced the world in any significant way, however to me, anything new is good work. Continue reading
What makes a good pitch? Ricky Yu
This week, I wanted to talk about something else besides my competition and finance course, but still something that is related to what I am studying. What makes a good business pitch? Is it the idea itself? The presentation? The talking? There are multiple parts that have to click well together in a business plan or a proposal, and I will tell you shortly today what makes a good business pitch. Continue reading
This week I met with the librarians to find help on researching the conflict. After talking to them I realized that my film has no angle. Continue reading
This week is going to be a bit dry, but it will pay off in the future. Dexter mentioned in the comments last week that it would be nice for me to start using payoff matrix. And so this week I am going to lay out some tools used in game theory that will be used to make it easier to notate and visualize the concepts as we talk about them. Continue reading
In my third post, I thought it would be a good idea to introduce you to what photography gear I am using for the project. I carry a lot with me every time I go down to the lake, and it can be quite heavy, but I think each item is important and I would not want to be caught without a single one of them. Let’s jump right in!
In my previous blog post, I mentioned a form of implicit bias training called facial recognition training. I chose to study facial recognition training because not only is this method one of the most interesting, but it has been used previously with children of young ages and law enforcement. Pretty neat, huh? Continue reading
The night has given me dark eyes
But I use them to look for light
– Gu Cheng, Mao’s Harvest
I have always been fascinated by this short yet concise poem as stated above. When I first read it in middle school, I felt perplexed by its deep connotations. How come, in the poet’s perspective, the night gives him dark eyes? Why does he use them to search for light? With a lack of understanding on the historical context, I found it somehow difficult to delve into the essential meaning contained in this poem.
This week, I’d like to finish up TraceCloud’s business plan struggle I mentioned in the first blog entry.
After successfully created the first workable model for TraceCloud and got the technical documentation done, our team started searching online all the available business plans from different companies. At first, I was strictly looking for business plans in technology field and found that since all the products were profession targeted, they were not helpful for us, a group of business novices, regarding providing sample for a basic business plan.
