So true.

Watch all the fake Berdych fans come out in force now he is playing Nadal.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nothing wrong with that.Being an non-American woman you sure will have a much easier time getting a position. I guess it depends on whether you want to slog it out.

I have heard that because of their diversity and equal opportunity program, it makes universities look good if they have lots of women faculty. So I have heard that the probability of being selected for a position is atleast 1:10 for women. But I haven't any experience myself so it might be exaggerated

I agree; I wasn't so sure about the non-American part in your sentence though.

It's not like MTF isn't above bandwagoning is it?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Wrong choice of words. I meant of a different ethnicity.

If there is one thing you can count on in MTF, it's bandwagoning

I should have guessed; minorities and women. Though the first one does not apply to me since I am Caucasian.

I missed what you were talking about, but the women having an easier time with positions is only for certain fields, which one is Metis interested in?

And the ethnicity factor is not true, diversity is only for underrepresented minorities, Greeks don't count (sorry).

Thanks for correcting me. I don't understand ethnicity very much:blush: but while I was typing I realized that it probably didn't apply to you.

we were talking about faculty positions in engineering; yes, Greeks definitely don't count as a minority
