Michelle Obama and the SunPower Kidz™: A Solution to Obesity

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

The first lady’s proclamation to reduce childhood obesity is commendable. Her plan would make children more active while enriching their eating habits.

Barack Obama: An Idyllic Promise for Change

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

One of the more interesting strategies that surfaced was how the Obama team approached the statistics of voting.  In prior elections, their statistical analysis determined that eleven out of every twenty people voted.  Cleverly, they sought out the other nine.  This proved to be a smart strategy to boost the chances of success.  If in […]
