    Although I do wonder how exactly can someone get into a master's program and ride other people's coat tails and not exert any effort whatsoever, I'm not sure I like this idea of a team paper, if we get an A, then its because of the people who did the work and its not fair to the ones who actually do the work to have to do someone else's workload. Are UOP Learning Teams like a social experiment? We have to do team evaluation for the teacher after each team assignment but I wonder if our individual evaluation's on the team members have any bearing on the outcome of the grade for each team member?

    A social experiment that I recently heard about, the class was about socialism.

    That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
    The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism".  All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

    When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    So is that how it works with these learning teams? I want an A so I'll do my best no matter what and I'll continue to write the papers because I want an A in the class. These learning team evaluation always ask how these team assignment will help you both professionally and personally.

    I'm not learning much about being a member of a team except 

    1. some people are merely followers and not leaders and I don't want these people on my next team
    2. some people don't exert any effort and ride on others coat tails 
    3. if I want an A, I'm going to have to write the papers
    4. how to play nice with others and don't run with scissors

    Street Food - how to find it all, with so many different options out there how to do you keep track of them all? I work right across the street from Spencer on the go and yet still haven't figure out exactly where he'll be when the truck pulls away from the restaurant.  You could follow sfstreetfoods and get device updates on location of potential street vendors or you could check out their aggregator of Twitter pages from local food carts which might be a way to keep in touch.

    And that new law for street food vendors in SF, the 1000.00 permit per month to operate in SF Parks - what is the city trying to do, discourage new businesses? 1000.00 month is a steep price for a small street food vendor. A general business license in SF is only 150.00 a year for a business with no employees. Why the outrageous 1000.00 fee per month, its not per year, it per month.  I'm wondering though if all the street food vendors became one entity, would they then only need to pay the for one permit, one license?

    Everyone keeps telling me that I'm stressed that I need to relax and yet I don't feel stressed, do I look stressed? I know I look tired but I don't feel stressed, I feel calmly relaxed, the bills are paid, the team assignment is done. 

    Well since I have the day to do as I wish, I should get to the client's office before they realize I haven't been there all weekend...then maybe I'll just finish all my assignments early and be done with that extra stress. It's not like the weekly discussion questions have anything to do with the assignments, you'd think they would all tie back in, wouldn't you?

    Imagine yourself back in time, a time when the mighty river was the way of transportation between towns and new exciting adventures, imagine yourself through Huckleberry Finn or Mark Twain's eyes, imagine being on a riverboat and traveling through quaint riverside villages of Russia's Svir River, through Europe's Danube River,  through China on the Yangtze River or the Majestic waterways of Holland on a riverboat, experience destinations through a whole new median, the river cruises. Now imagine yourself waking up every morning on the river and being able to open your window or leave your window open all night while sleeping on the river. Imagine taking tai chi lessons from a Chinese master as you cruise through the Yangtze morning mist. Stop imagining! Its all there waiting for you on the Viking River Cruises
