Bot, ProjGrad and the Cult of Colt

Thursday night I attended a delightful barbecue on behalf of my Rotary Club. It was held by the Kauai Robotics Team and held at Island School.
The team represented 4 public and private high schools this year and will represent 6 schools next year. A great time was had by all!
On Friday, it was off to Project Grad at Waimea High.
The lines to Project Grad were orderly but the din of "chee-hoos" was deafening! Here is Andrew- my Facebook friend Nikki's "pumpkinhead" nephew.
Byron with Keola and mom and then... sporting a "peer-cut" this morning. 
Parents are required to deliver and pick up students in Project Grad so I got a chance to see the Gonsalves' waiting for Quinn and Kauai, mom of my Senior Project student Erin with her relative and morning motivational speaker Lee Cataluna!

Yesterday was a kind of "fun" day. After taking the brunt of some east-coast talk radio "humor", I got a chance to talk to Colt Brennan (in the studio with Chris and Tanner Cooley) and ask him a question about Redskins football.

Cool robot! Exciting way to get more kids involved with math and sciences.

Glad to see everyone had a good time at the Project Graduation. So important they enjoy themselves in a safe and sane manner. Must be a big load off the minds of parents!

Success and happiness to each and every one of them!

So what was the question to Colt, and what was his response?

Move the slider about halfway through the sound clip and you can hear my question just after the movie review. Then very close to the end of clip, Mike asks Colt a serious FB question and he gives a very serious answer.

I wonder what kind of and how much peer pressure was applied. He looks good with shorter hair.

wafan- the boys had fun buzzing each others' hair. Byron wanted a haircut anyway. They had hair stylists, manicurists, massage therapists, played video games, dance dance revolution,and had a hypnotist.

Great! Happy to learn it was voluntary. Peer-pressure is awful.

Is there a really good massage therapist on Kaua'i? How about a spa? Maybe a day of pampering -- body scrub, massage, manicure/pedicure, etc. would be a good thing. What a way to relax and enjoy yourself! That would be a lot of fun, too.

Gosh! No one asked?!?!

What was the robot designed to do? What do the numbers repesent?
Aside of the schools and kids who were the sponsors?
Did the team get to travel to the robotics contest?
How did they/it do?

You can Google on the links from there. Pretty cool!

Spas are good.

That's cool that you got to talk to Colt. I had a chance to meet him at an autograph signing last month and he was one of the most down to earth athletes I have ever met. He took the time to take a picture of me and my newborn and talk to of for a few minutes...of course we were both in our Colt UH jerseys. We also saw him the other day when we were walking out to our car after dinner. He looked up and I threw up the shaka and he just smiled and laughed and stopped his car to say hi.

Oh, and it doesn't matter if you have a Mac
or PC, by the way. This excerpt from Maximum Wireless Security explains common attacks such as sniffing,
spoofing, sniffing and session hijacking.

Indeed, point-of-sale register systems have already played a significant role in shifting power from manufacturers to retailers.
