### 22nd Cumberland Conference at WKU

I went to the 22nd Cumberland conference at WKU. It was on Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Computing. Darin gave a presentation on rook's polynomial. Here are few pics from there. The stir fry at the local japanese resturant was awesome. We stopped by at Andy's house and I had this lemon drop.

### Stir Fry

Last Thursday I had a sumptuous stir fry. So I decided to cook for myself this one. I love Chinese style cooking because it keeps the flavour of your vegetables. Here I have green beans, zucchini, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, tomato and green peas.

### Cayley's Theorem: n^(n-2),

There are numerous proofs for Cayley's theorem, counting labeled trees. I like this one based on multinomial theorem by Dr. Clark.

### Review

This was the second book by Eknath Easwaran that I completed recently. I really enjoyed the book its in the same genre as "Don't sweat the small stuff its all small stuff". What I liked particular about this book is the many references that Eknath brings in this book by living the same principle as Mahatama Gandhi did.
This is a book like "Don't sweat ..." that you might want to come back again and again. The book as I said is peppered with his anecdotes and other tales besides his reference to his 8 point meditation and emphasis on simple living . Some of my favorite one are the physics classroom where he was placing the duster on the wrong side and later would find it to be on the other side. His voyage at sea where he doesn't participate in the conflict. Overall a good book which will prompt you to be a better person in all areas of your life.
