I am currently watching the Oscars/Academy Awards while I am studying for tomorrow's exam, and, surprisingly, both are a snoozefest, for the most part. However, there were three moments that shocked and awed me in the 2011 Academy Awards. The opening skit was cute - how actress Anne Hathaway and actor James Franco incorporated themselves in several 2010 movies - and another famous actress uttered the F-bomb (uncensored) on national television. And, last but not least, the autotune was awesome.

As for the studying, the terms for tomorrow's exam are pretty straight-forward, but there are a lot of definitions, such as: the importance of greenhouse gases; how the air moves in the atmosphere, based on the PGF and Coriolis forces; and the difference among transpiration, evaporation and evapotranspiration. To me, these questions are easy - for your information, the class is AOSC123: Causes and Implications of Global Change.
