  • FORUM: Three-Over-Two
    Concluding my morning walk along the fishing docks, I took the stairs to the second floor of the Point Loma Sportfishing building. I wanted to wish Lori, who runs the American Angler business office, a great morning and a wonderful day. The “Double A,” as anglers affectionately call the boat, is one of the celebrated … Continue reading FORUM: Three-Over-Two

For me, athletics is an enjoyable method of reversing physical withering resulting from long periods of primarily motionless sitting when working at a desk. Athletics provides an applied setting in which to employ scientific and engineering knowledge and evaluate specific measurable personal … Continue reading FORUM: Sports

When I arrived for the procedure an office worker called my insurance company and learned that only $200 of the $1,000 total cost of the procedure was covered. I paid the $800 difference and was told that the … Continue reading FORUM: Falling

    Presently I live in Chicago in a fifth-floor apartment facing Lake Michigan—about half a block away.

  1. Hello Paul. I am one of Professor Bryant’s former mentees, and he introduced you to our class sometime during my course work. I graduated from Loyola during 2012 and have been collecting data regarding a human rights issue since then. Upon speaking with Patrick Harrison regarding the data I have been collecting he suggested that I contact you as he believes the best statistical analysis will be Classification Tree Analysis (Patrick was also one of Fred’s mentees). I would be honored to speak with you regarding the project as well as the corresponding dataset. If you are available, please contact me at (360) 603-1021.
