  1. Studies show that sugar can give a temporary boost to brain function. People who take a small dose of sugar water perform better in cognitive tests than those who take an artificially sweetened drink or those who drink water alone. So taking something (small candy or granola bar, banana, etc) to snack on just before, or even during, an exam can possibly help performance.

  2. I’m lucky this finals week. I’m a professional tutor at my community college so I am considered faculty. I am taking two classes: one is Industrial Robots, a subject that I am tutoring–I need the knowledge. The other one is a class on getting along when you are on the autism spectrum, which I am, so that is for me, not related to my job. As a staff member, I get both employee and senior citizen discounts. I am the oldest person in the ‘Autism’ class, even older that the teachers. I’m not sure about the Industrial Robots; the teacher and I have very similar education and work experience, so we are close to the same age.

    I’m using my personal email for school security reasons.
