    Yesterday 10/23, the last day of the EcoChallenge competition at Roosevelt, was a busy day for me of meetings and teaching, and thus I had few moments to spare and couldn't spend any significant time outside. Moreover, the need to haul stuff to work prevented me from riding my bike to my commuter train, and thus I drove to the train station...

    Today I had to commute to campus by car instead of train due to scheduling constraints. However, this resulted in a pleasant walk from Millennium Park to RU via the north garden at the Art Institute, a very pleasant green oasis along the hustle and bustle of Michigan Ave. Also made a point of taking the stairs while in AUD as much as possible,...

    Today 10/8 I rode my bike from home to the Joliet downtown train station, where I catch the Rock Island Metra train to Chicago. Good exercise on a beautiful fall day, and I saved $1 in parking fees. (Too bad my train round-trip is $15.60.) I'm attending a talk at Roosevelt this afternoon at 2pm by Gina Ramirez (MA Soc '14), who is speaking...
