Throwback Thursday: Random facts about me you may not know

Going through our archives, we came across this great post by Dr. AnnMaria De Mars from February 28, 2016 “Random facts about me you may not know” that we wanted to share in case you missed it the first time around.

It’s a Sunday afternoon, so I thought I would come out with a completely random post.

Feel free to add your own random facts about yourself in the comments.

I started a youtube playlist, 5 Minutes of Free Advice

When I have time, I add another video. There are 20 on there now. Topics are welcome. Julia suggested the topic “Advice to Julia’s Future Kids” which is one of the more viewed ones.

I am being inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday. My lovely youngest daughter, Julia, and I are flying to Columbus, Ohio for the event.

I do a blog on statistics, business and programming.Ā This week, I am doing a whole series ranting on how sick I am of that bullshit about consumers, employers and investors cannot find women and minorities in technology to support.

I also write a company blog for 7 Generation Games, mostly on startup lifeĀ and with a Throwback Thursday post every week on what I was thinking about 2, 3 or sometimes 8 years ago. Maria had asked that I not swear on that one so it is updated less frequently.

In my spare time, of which I have none, I teach online courses for National University, which is a non-profit university started by a retired admiral.Ā  Once a year, I teach biostatistics, epidemiology or advanced quantitative data analysis.

I’m teachingĀ a course on factor analysis in April in Las Vegas at the SAS Global Forum. Then leaving immediately from there to fly all night to speak at the North Dakota STEM conference.

I’ll be doing a judo clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma in May. I almost never do clinics but I have known Dr. Martin Bregman since I was in junior high school, so I’m going to Oklahoma.

I make games you can download and play on your desktop. They’re only $9.99 each and they WILL make you smarter. I’d write about how I know that to be true but I have to get back to making games.
