    News Presidential Candidates 2008

    I am not a big fan of Brownback or Tancredo either, but Senator Paul stood out in my eyes more than those two. He ran as a Libertarian in '98 and came in 3rd.

    Hours Allotted for Study

    I am definately not expecting to keep my week-ends completely free. However, I would like to keep Saturdays free and preferably Friday nights as well. I just didn't schedule anything for the week-end so that any additional studying I do on the week-end will be on top of the 20 hours during the...

    A Linear Diet Model

    I am working on solving a linear diet problem. I am given a differential equation. The problem basically requires me to solve the D.E., then plug 'n chug. I have gone over the solution to the D.E. over and over again. A fellow calculus student has also looked over the math and cannot find the...

    Advice wanted: online chat - text or voice
