I just finished preparing my lecture for tomorrow's class on orthodoxy. I am planning to take all of you to our church sanctuary and conduct the class out there. It will provide us the right setup to talk about orthodoxy and show you what our tradition means. I'll do my best to make your last class a memorable one, and also try to leave a long lasting impression about orthodoxy. Let's meet in our class, and then move towards the sanctuary.
Look forward to meeting you tomorrow.

In case you run into an accident here is what you should and should not do:
1. Call your parents and explain what happend - they are the ones who will guide you.
2. Call and inform the police.
3. Call and inform your insurance agency.
4. Make a list of all the cars involved - make, year, model, state and license plate etc.
5. Get names, addresses, drivers license number and phone numbers of people involved.
6. Do not admit mistake or responsiblity about the accident to anyone at the scene, except police. Just answer the questions you've been asked for, by the officer.
7. Never discuss how much insurance coverage you have or what you do not have.
8. Stay safe inside your car.
You also need to carry a good pencil, piece of paper/notebook in your car always, to make notes.
America's Best Graduate School Rankings 2010 was published on April 23rd. It's available here. The rankings are based on surveys and other statistical indicators to assess college faculty, research facilities, students, and other related information. This is the most popular ranking system for colleges.
Similar to this, they have an undergraduate ranking list as well. The next time you are at a bookstore, take a look at US News magazine. It has most of the rankings you need for undergraduate studies.
Keep track of these schools, and check out your area of interest.
