Oh no, a Russian Spectacular Comrade Rebane? That is sure to set off some fireworks. You are indeed a man of danger. Learn something new every day.


Then again, maybe I will attend the events and have some fun. Especially at the Leonard Cohen's songs concert. Hope to see Punchy there. I will try to behave, but they do say all politics are local.

I understand The Donald is going to provide commentary for the Russian Spectacular. Is that true?

George Rebane

GeorgeB 317pm - Sadly Mr Boardman, we tried but couldn't get him. It appears that he's providing such commentary at a more prominent venue than our little fairgrounds (no matter how fair it is). It is rumored that his dissertation will be on how Bonaparte could have avoided 1812 by offering to simply buy Moscow when at its gates - a real estate deal overlooked, and perhaps a harbinger of things yet to come ;-)

Don Bessee

Good one. ;-)

Dr. R: Did you check to see if Mike Flynn is available?

Don Bessee

He's busy filming a commercial for Russian dressing that day GB. ;-)

George Rebane

GeorgeB 455pm - We did, but found him too busy drafting notes of apology to VP Pence. So far none of his produce will serve, but he's sure that with a bit more wordsmithing, one will surely turn out to be an acceptable missal for absolution. Until then he shares with the president a heartfelt hope that the FBI will drop their determined effort to nail him, no matter that they have so little else on their plate that looks promising.

GB- you should take a look at my 502 under dems or Russians on this blog. ;-)

Hey George: Another STEM project in my field of microchip manufacturing.

Micron and SEMI partner to host High Tech U in Silicon Valley

The SEMI Foundation and the Micron Technology Foundation announced their partnership this week to deliver the 213th SEMI High Tech U (HTU) program which kicks off in earnest today at Micron’s facilities in Milpitas. Forty students from local high schools are attending the three-day science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program.

The nonprofit SEMI Foundation has been holding its flagship program, SEMI High Tech U, at industry sites around the world since 2001 to emphasize the importance of STEM skills and inspire young people to pursue careers in high technology fields. HTU allows students to meet engineers and volunteer instructors from industry in a face-to-face setting with tech-related, hands-on activities such as etching wafers, making circuits, coding and professional interviews training.

“We are delighted to partner with Micron in our common goal to motivate the next generation of innovators,” said Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI and the SEMI Foundation. “HighTech U has reached more than 6,000 students in eleven states as well as nine countries internationally. We are pleased to join with Micron to serve students here in Silicon Valley.”

“Micron Technology Foundation has been inspiring learners of all ages and supporting early exposure to technology through our own Micron Chip Camp for 17 years,” said Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron president and CEO. “SEMI High Tech U is complementary to these efforts and we are proud to partner with the SEMI Foundation to deliver our first joint program focused on high school students to promote careers in STEM-related high tech industries such as semiconductor manufacturing.”

My 13 piece music group and I are thrilled to be performing tomorrow night at the Music in the Mountains summerfest concert series. We'll be playing the music, songs and poetry of the late Leonard Cohen. Here's a link for more information.

Full Disclosure: Lest we be exposed by less charitable souls, I have to admit that last night we and a number of our friends attended the Russian Spectacular performance at the fairgrounds MIM SummerFest. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and so did a fairly large audience of neighbors and visitors from hereabouts. Despite this, I maintain that our attendance was not motivated by any intent to cuddle Russia. However, I cannot attest to the motivations of the cohort that surrounded us; some of them did exhibit a bit of excessive exhilaration which may not have been induced only by the performed music. One cannot be too careful.

To alleviate any doubt as to our allegiance, you will see us tonight at the gala Patriotic Pops which closes this season’s SummerFest. Hopefully that will sufficiently atone for any previous politically incorrect attendances ;-)
