Watched USC vs. Texas - September 15, 2018 from Fox

Ehlinger 2 touchdown passes lead Texas over No. 22 USC 37-14

Sam Ehlinger passed for two touchdowns, Anthony Wheeler returned a blocked field goal 46 yards for a score and Texas beat No. 22 Southern California 37-14 on Saturday night to give second-year coach Tom Herman his biggest win in burnt orange.

I really didn’t expect this kind of blowout.

Watched "Murphy Brown" Three Shirts to the Wind from CBS
Directed by Don Scardino. With Candice Bergen, Twinkle Burke, Tyne Daly, Nik Dodani.

This would have been better/stronger if the “Bannon” character had been a bit bigger and more combative. There could have been more drama in the confrontation and the politics could always be more subtle and less on-the-nose.

📺 "Murphy Brown" #MurphyToo | CBS

Watched "Murphy Brown" #MurphyToo from CBS
Directed by Don Scardino. With Candice Bergen, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, Grant Shaud. After enduring a boring workplace workshop on sexual harassment, Murphy Brown remembers a time when she was in college and her professor tried to take advantage of her. She confides in Bartender Phyllis who unwittingly gives useful advice.

While mildly comedic and vaguely entertaining, this show is somehow addictive despite the fact that it seems like it’s stuck in the 80s/early 90s show while still covering modern day topics and politics.

I can’t image that it will continue on unless it broadens out its politics a bit.

🔖 academicpages is a ready-to-fork GitHub Pages template for academic personal websites

Bookmarked academicpages is a ready-to-fork GitHub Pages template for academic personal websites (academicpages.github.io)
This is the front page of a website that is powered by the academicpages template and hosted on GitHub pages. GitHub pages is a free service in which websites are built and hosted from code and data stored in a GitHub repository, automatically updating when a new commit is made to the respository. This template was forked from the Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Themecreated by Michael Rose, and then extended to support the kinds of content that academics have: publications, talks, teaching, a portfolio, blog posts, and a dynamically-generated CV. You can fork this repository right now, modify the configuration and markdown files, add your own PDFs and other content, and have your own site for free, with no ads! An older version of this template powers my own personal website at stuartgeiger.com, which uses this Github repository.

👓 Todd H. Bol Notice | Little Free Library

Read Todd H. Bol, 1956-2018 (Little Free Library)
We’re deeply saddened to report that our Founder, Todd H. Bol, passed away Thursday, October 18. Todd spent much of the last decade working towards his vision of a world where neighbors know each other by name, and everyone has access to books. He was heartene...

I had just a tiny amount of advance notice that this was coming, but didn’t expect the ultimate news so soon.

You’ll be missed terribly, but your impact on the world was supremely profound.
