The Grudge

without comments

Dani Rodrik has a grudge against Bill Kristol. Boy, does he have a grudge against Bill Kristol.

That’ll teach graduate students never ever to demand that undergraduates call them by their last name only when they work as assistant teachers.

Between the Seasons

without comments


I’ve had students telling me that the weather is sunny in Kiruna (they are probably trying to convince me that I should visit the place :-P ).

Anyway, this is how the view from my window was an hour ago: We have had unusually warm weather for nearly all of this winter and temperatures have been above the freezing point for the past days, but there is a wee bit of snow left.

Ready. Steady. Go!

with 2 comments

It is past midnight now so I can announce that today I begin teaching my final course.

I know that I’ve said so once before, but this time this should really be it. (In case you wonder what this is about, go back to this post)

It is a bit strange as it is an internet-based course, and all of the presentations have been recorded in advance, so I will only be meeting the students (who are based in Gällivare, Jokkmokk, Kiruna and Pajala) face to face once – and only if I don’t have to make other plans at short notice. Everything else goes via the internet and telephone.
