Re: 2016 HSNCT discussion

Nobody calls amphotericin B by its brand name any more, unless they've been practicing medicine forever. I've taken two courses on antibiotics and I don't remember ever discussing that brand name.

Re: Quiz Bowl Survivor: 50 Buzz, 49 Neg

4. ACF/NAQT Regionals/Sectionals - Despite improving over the course of the season, these two tournaments only solidified the fact that we were considerably behind Chicago and Michigan at both formats.

Re: How to Study American History

I haven't had much lucking in finding other large-scale online or print collections of historical political cartoons, but I'm sure other people in the community have and I'd love it if they shared 'em. The "Comics Should Be Good" blog took a look at Pulitzer Prize winning cartoons in 2009. Here's t...

Re: Universal Pronunciation Guide

Replacing an incomprehensible string of characters with an indecipherable one defeats the purpose. What you're looking for is a string of letters some sophomore volunteer who is probably inexperienced at reading out loud can look at and sound out an unfamiliar word easily and relatively quickly.

I'll be part of a team (at least one of my old teammates can possibly make it), assuming the minor miracle happens and I can get the days off.
