I can't stand my parents. They pay around 50,000$ for my sister to go to school, 25,000$ for her car, and they can't give me a dime for anything. :mad:

That's lovely :D but that's not the one I meant. :o I already have that one printed out. :p

I want the one from Wimby '00, during one of their mixed dubs matches. They're standing on court, kissing.

Yeah, that's the one! :D

It's on Kerrin's website. Go to "photos" on the main page, then click on "archives" or "pics before 2002" or whatever it is. Another page will open up, then scroll down until you see the link to take you to pics of Lleyton and Kim during Wimby '00. I'm almost positive it's on there.

LEIPZIG, Germany (Reuters) - Title holder Kim Clijsters eased through to the third round of the Leipzig Grand Prix on Thursday by crushing Russia's Nadia Petrova in straight sets.



Belgian Clijsters, who is seeded fourth this year and had a bye past the first round, started her quest for a third consecutive triumph in the $585,000 event with a straightforward 6-4, 6-2 victory.

"I moved faster on the court and that was the key," said Clijsters, who lost to world number one Serena Williams ( news - web sites) in the final of the Toyota Princess Cup in Tokyo on Sunday.

"I have completely recovered from the trip from Tokyo," she added. "I'm feeling great."

The 19-year-old world number eight goes on to meet local favorite Barbara Rittner for a place in the semi-finals.

The only surviving German, the unseeded Rittner dumped seventh seed Silvia Farina Elia of Italy 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. Russian Anastasia Myskina, the sixth seed, also advanced to the quarter-finals with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 win over Czech Kveta Hrdlickova.

World number 12 Myskina will now take on American Meghann Shaughnessy, who knocked out second seed Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia on Wednesday. Slovakia's Janette Husarova survived two tie breaks to beat American Alexandra Stevenson 1-6, 7-6, 7-6 and set up a third round clash against top seed Serena Williams, who turned 21 on Thursday.

KaseyL

this is the text from German media, from Kim's interview...

"Ich war noch etwas müde", erklärte sie, warum sie so schwer ins Match gekommen ist. "Ich bin aus Tokio gekommen, und es dauert schon drei Tage, bis der Jetlag überwunden ist."

Angele
09-26-2002, 11:05 PM

09-26-2002, 11:11 PM
"Ich war noch etwas müde", erklärte sie, warum sie so schwer ins Match gekommen ist. "Ich bin aus Tokio gekommen, und es dauert schon drei Tage, bis der Jetlag überwunden ist."

"I was still a bit tired", she explained as the reason why she had some trouble to come in the match. "I came from Tokyo, and it takes three days before the jetlag is gone."

The important process going on is the fact that magnesium is a stronger reducing agent than zinc (cf. position in electrochemical series) and hence:

Mg (s) + Zn2+ (aq) ---------> Zn (s) + Mg2+ (aq)

Well, in a sense, the nitrate anion is kinda just there to balance the charges. It's known as a 'spectator ion' in these sorts of redox reactions. Was this what you meant?

Looks like Kim has Rittner instead of Farina Elia tomorrow. Don't know if that's good or bad. Don't know anything about Rittner, she's a WC. But I'm sure that Kim will crush her.
Yay, Kim! You go, girl! Pulverize her!
There are a couple of pics of Kim playing today on the tournie's website. Also, in case you guys are interested, Henin lost in doubles to pred2. She plays Dani tomorrow in the battle of the scarily skinny people. Here's hoping they somehow BOTH lose. But they probably won't, so I'm pulling for Dani.
Serena will crush either one, so it doesn't really matter all that much. All that matters is Kimmy.

math, yuck (sorry, allan). One time in college I had an oral statistics exam (yes, an oral statistics exam). I had no idea what I was doing because I had not bothered to learn the formulas by heart. So I started dividing, multiplying and what else have you with the numbers we were given until I got a result that I tought made sense and then reconstructed the formula accordingly. When I had to explain what I had done, the professor looked me blank in the face and said "You have absolutely no idea what you are saying, do you?" And then he gave me a 10 (out of 100), probably for effort. So don't worry about math, ana. You can't be any worse than me.

LOL, aren't we all... I'm almost pathologically lazy... when I first started grad school my research was experimental ( :eek: :eek: ) in nature... and I absolutely hated/detested/loathed/abhorred it... I wouldn't mind putting reactions on, but I couldn't get arsed working them up and isolating the product, don't even get me started on purifying the damn crap and cleaning the bloody glassware afterwards....

After a long period of putting reactions on and leaving them going for months because I couldn't be bothered finishing them off I ditched that project and moved to something computational....

I had two thesis advisers, the experimentalist and the computational chemist.... I am no longer on speaking terms with the experimentalist... wonder why? :p

Speaking of FMTT, I am genuinely interested in it, but I fear I may be loopy and regularly forget to do things I ought to do... so I was thinking...

I'll possibly sign up, and post a thread here in LL Lounge for regulars here who are also participating in FMTT, that way, maybe you, Marls, Mazza and I can post and encourage and remind each other to get organized and send in commitments and points and stuff?

Well... I think I made a very bad first choice... I was completely and totally unsuited to labwork. Computational chemistry wasn't much better, booooooooring, just collect lots of data and talk about it. Oh yes, and make pretty, informative diagrams. Sheesh.

Lucky I double majored and had math as well, so I've defected, and it suits me a lot more.... just loads of daydreaming and pushing points, lines and symbols around.

If you have the ambition, go for it! Grad school in the humanities would be extremely stimulating intellectually. Extremely strong culture of independence and originality. Sciences.... pff... these days Ph.D's are used as glorified cheap lab assistantships for faculty to get their dirty work done. :mad: I contemplated dropping out of grad school so many times, but I had to finish the damn thing so I can apply for permanent residency here so I stuck it out and wrote a damn thesis. It's currently being examined so I'm playing the waiting game... Ironic... the PhD after one's name IS pretty, but after I get it, I'd rather stack shelves at Safeway than do chemistry anymore.

The craze at the uni I'm at is "microscale" ie. do reactions in tiny quantities to save costs, reduce chemical and solvent waste etc. The drawback of course is that it's much harder to make spectacular explosions on those scales! :p

Juju and Dani are 5 all in the second set. Justine took the first. In good news, if Dani loses, she still stays one ranking away from Kim. I thought it was interesting that in that interview Ingrid posted, Mark said Kim's goal was to get back into the top 5. It seems like the more realistic goal at this point (as much as I hate to say it) is just to finish Top Ten this year.

Justine wins. She'll stay at number 6 for now, I think. And Serena will smash her into oblivion.
GO KIM!!

Writing about me is easy, I just hate when I have to research and write about someone else :p

X-Men is a good movie though :D

Narrative tells a story, eh? Tell about your sexcapades.

Ugh so much homework :mad:

I'll tell you what... I'll switch with one of you guys. You write my opinionated biography of General Custer and I'll write your paper :D

The movie was good, but personally I like the comics more. I'm an X-Men addict. :o :p

I can't tell about my sexcapades, as it's supposed to be a TRUE narrative. :p I described the difficulties of publishing a school newspaper. It's more interesting than it sounds, trust me. :p

I'm not gonna switch with you, I already wrote my paper. :p

An opinionated biographer of Custer? Er......he was a dumbass. :p

Yeah my teacher hates him so I decided to do him and rip him a new one so I'll get an A.

I was so obsessed with the X-Men as a kid. I have tons of their comics and I have like every cartoon episode on tape :D

Did I ever mention our bug problem?

They're everywhere. Crickets and those nasty little stinkbugs. They climb up the rough brick on the sides of the school and hang there, clinging. And then they get up into the lights and short them out, and then get into the air conditioning vents and dive bomb out onto your head. They hop around and wriggle their way into your bag, so when you reach in to get something, they crawl on you with their nasty, scratchy little legs. Every step you take, you crunch a bug. The sound and the smell haunts my dreams.

And the sad thing is, I haven't exaggerated any of that. They're everywhere.
