What a name. But the Edsel was a very ugly car. Though I think it also had mechanical problems.

The only reason I'd ever heard was the look of the car itself.
Poor kid having had to go through life with that name.

i thought Edsel did not sell because it was named after one of Ford's kids, which was seen as pompous.

Very funny (and here I thought it was because of styling)

Do you know why the Chevy Nova did not sell well in Mexico and South America? because in Spanish, "No va" means "doesn't go" .

And that our potential future son in law is from northern Virginia (called NOVA in these parts) sort of seals the deal on DC.

Yeah, if she really wants to work in policy change and affect more people, she needs to either be in NYC or DC.

Nah - she graduates with her Master's in May. She comes home for the holidays (interviews upcoming) and fully plans to live someplace near Washington DC (perhaps here initially). We'll see.

Iowa-bound she is not. Apples do not fall far from trees; she stays within reach of the trunk.

We're DC Metro veterans; thanks all. Pammy has had two summer internships down there. Red line from Glenmont for the win...

Washington DC is easy to navigate with the metro - and Union Station is the train station, connected directly to the metro. Just sayin'. To avoid driving in the snow and slush.

Congratulations!!

I never joined snapchat although seems like people also use it for the photo filters - like decorative floral "wreaths" to put around by their foreheads and ears, or goofy animal noses - stuff to tweak a photo just enough to prevent a person from being completely identified. But you are right - universities and other "stodgy institutions" are using snap chat as well...

Apparently there are interviews being lined up. Winter vacation is getting pockmarked with various voyages into Wash DC for interviews here and there.

I suspect this young woman is going to have multiple minutes of fame over the years - she definitely seems to be quite accomplished in many areas!

Mazel tov!

that is very cool. and the librarian thing also

the other allure of snap is that the people dont know who else you sent the snap to. i would think thats not a good thing for a university - nor having a trail easily followed. but it is a cool thing and that makes it impresssive for pammy to get!

I do not have an account on snapchat. As I understand it, snapchat is where kids went after adults invaded Facebook. It is used for both group and individual chats, without (allegedly) leaving a lasting online trail. (I believe everything that occurs online is retrievable). Apparently in its early days, snapchat garnered a reputation for its illicit use for s-e-x-t-ing. You know kids; anything illicit has allure.

So now, large stodgy institutions and businesses (such as UMass) have self-prompotional presences there. UMass turns its account over to select students now and then, to promote themselves, and thus, indirectly and with a human touch, the school. This is Pammy's third turn at the helm. She chats with prospective students about her career there, work, interests, etc.

She has been very active in "World Librarians" - a program to bring technological literacy to the developing world.
