Many of us like to make New Year’s Resolutions, or goals for the year. Others of us have given up on making resolutions because they always fall through after a few months. New Year’s Resolutions are notorious for failing, but why? And how can we make make them work? New Year’s Resolutions often fail because we make too many.

Suspicious Free Wifi

     If you’ve gone to San Francisco, you may have noticed that certain areas have free wifi, called #SFWiFi. Free wifi makes me super #suspicious. I am literally so convinced that the free wifi is not as innocent as it seem. When an establishment has free wifi, it makes sense because free wifi will increase business. In fact, I love when places have free wifi, just not an entire city.             People are so excited by the free wifi, that they don’t even realize how sketchy it actually is. It’s like people forgot about the fact that the NSA goes…

Career Conversations: Michael Chin

What do you do as a physical therapist? I work in a sports orthopaedic center, so I work mainly with muscles, bones and joints.

What is the therapeutic exercise component? We design a sort of “exercise…

Careers of the Future

  As the end of the year approaches, many San Mateo High School students have begun to ask themselves the question we have been asking since our early days: “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Now, time is running out, as we are in fact “growing up” and must decide what to do with the rest of our lives. But the decision may be more difficult than it seems: as technology grows rapidly, the economy changes, and many of the occupations we will occupy someday do not even exist yet. Although it is difficult to imagine,…
