I'm going to live forever, part 1,754: Elixir of Olympians

I was sent this delightful piece by Canadian Olympian Clara Hughes about the real home field advantage: access to one's own espresso machine the morning of a race.

CPSA and NEPSA schedules released

Two theory-heavy political science conferences released their schedules today: the Canadian Political Science Association , June 1-3, Montreal (with the theory section organized by Jennifer Rubenstein and myself, and including a dedicated workhop on "Non-ideal and institutional theory") and the New England Political Science Association (theory panels organized by Sharon Krause).

For those who just want to see the theory listings for CPSA instead of browsing through the unwieldy 86-page pdf, I've separated them out here.
