The only, the sole, the lone, the single job I have is running this blog, and the consulting, speaking, and writing that arises from it. I do not and will not run advertisements, except, of course, for this one twice a year. Email addresses and names of clients and donors are never used in any way or given to anybody.
Now I am a repentant sinner and unworthy (to say the least), and many other greater causes exist. So if you don’t think you can, or should, hire me, consider giving to rapper B.o.B. who is seeking funds to prove the earth is flat. “I’m looking for a curve,” he says. He wants $200,000 for his own satellite to take definitive pictures. Help him find it.
I was with Cornell, latterly as an Adjunct, up until recently. Regulars will recall I lost my teaching job there this summer (Masters level stats class), after being replaced a feminist lawyer.
Since I have been claiming the credential on my CV, I wrote in April asking about my Adjunct status. Last Friday I received the terse email “The college administration says the term of on appointment has lapsed.” I have, I hope, removed all claims of current Adjunct status from my CV, etc. But it was valid at least through 2016, and I had thought through at least this summer, which is why on older material you will see it referenced.
