Link Friday - College UPAs, Good Food/Bad Food, and a Chair

My links this week are:

  • Torontula (UofToronto) team went to Sectionals last weekend and failed once again to crack Regionals. I scanned the scores today, and saw that 5 Canadian teams have made Regionals (University of Ottawa-Women, Carleton [from Ottawa], UBC [open and women], and Victoria). Also, Miami University Ohio made it into Regionals after what appears to be a major breakthrough on Sunday. This weekend we'll see who emerges from some regions while the last of the Sectionals finish up.
  • This article made an interesting point that healthy food on a fast food menu tends to make you eat worse?
  • These chairs (video below) introduced and designed by Niels Diffrient seem really cool.

Why don't eastern Canadian teams try harder in the UPA series? It doesn't seem like a priority for most of them.

It's just bad timing for us with exams going on during UPAs. That and there's really no chance to practice much outdoors before due to weather.
