this week i

am not done.

published importation syntax for the society of actuaries' medical large claims experience study.  the biggest and baddest publicly-available dataset of healthcare expenditure distributions.  busy weekend, more to come.

got my name in an open access journal alongside some big shots.

think we are not alone.

read teddy roosevelt's most famous.

the poorest way to face life is to face it with a sneer

the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena..if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory or defeat

the will and the power to work, to fight at need, and to have plenty of healthy children

the average man who protests that his international feeling swamps his national feeling, that he does not care for his country because he cares so much for mankind..that he does not care to be a citizen of any one country, because he is a citizen of the world, is in fact usually an exceedingly undesirable citizen of whatever corner of the world he happens at the moment to be in..if a man can view his own country and all other countries from the same level with tepid indifference, it is wise to distrust him, just as it is wise to distrust the man who can take the same dispassionate view of his wife and mother.  however broad and deep a man's sympathies, however intense his activities, he need have no fear that they will be cramped by love of his native land
