Keeping Busy Indoors

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

Ever feel like you are stuck indoors and don’t really know what to do with your time. This might be a real issue especially for International students (I know cause I am one), with winter break coming up. If you haven’t already made plans to visit relatives, friends in other cities and states, or simply don’t have a definite idea about what you are going to do.

‘Legal Aspects of Management’

A course I am taking with Prof. Patrick Spott, which was added to the Management curriculum recently, has been a paced learning journey. A few topics the course covers include – ‘courts and jurisdiction’, ‘criminal law’, ‘intellectual property and cyber piracy’, ‘genuineness of assent and statute frauds’, ‘ bankruptcy and reorganization’, ‘agency’. The course is structured with five non-cumulative exams worth 35 points. Here’s what struck me about the course, the mandate ‘Business Owner interview’ and the ‘Courtroom project’.

Daylight Savings

Monday, November 5th, 2018

I am a little too late already, but hey…nobody else wrote a blog about it yet! Giggles.

So first and foremost make sure to turn your clock back by an hour. Daylight savings began on Sunday, November 4. It is the practice of advancing clocks during winter months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. This practice was commenced as early as 1890s by George Hudson, who was an entomologist.

Drive up the North Shore

palisade head
This weekend, during our mid-semester break, I travelled up the north shore for the first time and made a stop at Palisade Head near Beaver Bay, Minnesota. The drive was just over an hour from Duluth. Along the way were a lot of small towns that had a very “up north” feeling to them. Almost all of them had their own little gift shops, bakeries, and candy shops, along with restaurants and cabins available to rent out. The drive alongside Lake Superior was very beautiful and scenic. You really get a good glimpse of just how big Lake Superior is when you are driving beside it for hours. We drove past Split Rock Lighthouse, which I have always seen pictures of but have never seen in person, and then shortly after that, we stopped at Palisade Head and went for a little hike to the edge of the cliffs where we could get a good view of the water. It was a very enjoyable trip and since Duluth is just a short drive away, it makes this drive a great option for spending a Saturday or Sunday when you are in need of a break from school or work. I will definitely be making this trip again soon and I highly recommend others to look into it, as well.
