There is a comment, in my previous Academic Calendar posting, asking about the new version of Academic Calendar for year 2010-2011. I haven’t had a chance to make yearly academic calendar, so, I decided to modify the previous calendar so it can be used for year 2010-2011.
All features are remain the same. And there are two version available. The first version is started from July 2010 and the other is started from August 2010.
Hi all, there are many requests about making a prediction game or an office pool based on my World Cup 2010 Schedule.
There are many types of prediction games or office pools can be made based on custom rules for this 2010 FIFA World Cup Football Tournament in South Africa. I made one that you can modify, tweak or develop based on your own rules. I don’t put any password in those worksheets so you can learn and modify it easily.
I created an office pool that can accommodate until 25 players with 3 different rules with 18 point values. You can adjust those point values. And if you think you want to eliminate existing rules or add new rules you can follow the formula I created to modify it. And basically this is a rule that I used with my friends for every World Cup or European Cup tournament.
I separated those 25 players into 25 different worksheets, so you can make this excel spreadsheet as a sharing workbook. I will explain how to share this workbook later… or you can just find it the your Microsoft Excel help menu.
Schumi is back… that is the biggest news from Formula 1 Championship this year. But, he will be racing against Ferrari. Yes… He is a Mercedes GP driver now. After surprising all people by making Jenson Button to become a world champion last year, Brawn GP is transformed in Mercedes GP, a Germany company, with Germany drivers including Michael Schumacher, the 7 time F1 champion. The other driver is Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld as backup driver.
And what about Jenson Button ? He will defend his title with McLaren team alongside Lewis Hamilton, where this team will have British drivers to chase another F1 championship trophy. So, two world champions within one team ? It will be exciting to see whether this Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button combination will be better than Lewis Hamilton – Fernando Alonso combination two years ago.
So, will it be Germany vs England for F1 Championship this year? I don’t so. Ferrari is mature now. They have focused on the development or 2010 car since last year. They don’t want to repeat the same mistakes by focusing on F1 championship in 2008 where it cost them year 2009. So far, the development is running toward the right direction where Ferrari cars is ruling this 2010 practice session.
With Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa behind the wheel, Ferrari looks like a very strong contender this year. And don’t forget Redbull. They are one of two teams that surprise all world in 2009 season by delivering Sebastian Vettel as F1 2009 season runner up.
