[FRC BLOG] Bride of 2017 Updates

8/23/16 FRC blog post.

Quote:
Bride of 2017 Updates (Classic Sequel to '2017 Updates'. Many assert it's actually the better blog*.)
Written by Frank Merrick.


Israel transitioning to the District Model

Itís true! Israel is transitioning to the District Model in the 2017 Season. Welcome, Israel, to the District family!

Subdivision Names
In the 2017 Updates Blog we said we would be effectively adding four subdivisions to the eight we have now, bringing the total to 12 across both Championships. Here is the list of folks we are honoring by naming Championship subdivisions after them:

Marie Daly (d.2003)
Marie Daly, FIRST Championship St. Louis

Biochemist and the first black American woman to earn her PhD in Chemistry in the United States. She completed groundbreaking work on the causes of heart attacks and was an activist in getting minorities enrolled in medical schools and graduate science programs.

Charles Darwin (d.1882)
Charles Darwin, FIRST Championship St. Louis

Discovered (co-discovered?**) the Theory of Evolution.

Emily Roebling (d.1903)
Emily Roebling, FIRST Championship Houston

Even with no formal engineering education, still effectively drove the Brooklyn Bridge to completion for over ten years after her husband, official Chief Engineer for the project, became incapacitated with Caisson disease.

Alan Turing (d.1954)
Alan Turing, FIRST Championship Houston

Pioneer in the field of computer science. Creator of the concept now called the ĎTuring Machineí.

Subdivision Assignments
These new subdivision names, along with our existing names, will be assigned to the Championships as follows:

FIRST Championship Houston
Carver
Galileo
Hopper
Newton
Roebling
Turing

FIRST Championship St. Louis
Archimedes
Carson
Curie
Daly
Darwin
Tesla

Even more about 2017 to follow soon.

Frank

* Bride of Frankenstein: I know this film is from 1935, but itís safe to say your cultural education is incomplete until youíve seen it, in the same way your gustatory education is incomplete until youíve eaten the Blaziní Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese from Mr. Macís in Manchester, NH. Seriously, thatís some tasty mac and cheese.

** Charles Darwin

Good guy Frank separates Carson and Carver, removing some verbal confusion. Thanks Frank!

Will both Championsplits have an Einstein division called Einstein?

Eventually there would have to be a thread explaining the lack of winning teams coming from the division. It'll be titled: "Darwin's Origin of Superstition"

Or was that Alfred Russel Wallace? Some say Darwin only got around to publishing because he learned that Wallace had submitted a paper to the Royal Society first. Wallace subdivision would be cool.

I am not biased.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Re: [FRC BLOG] Bride of 2017 Updates

Other than giving recognition to famous scientists/engineers/inventors, I don't really see a reason to not just use the same division names for both championships.

Because it's really supposed to be one championship in two places on two different places?

Because everyone would just start calling them Archimedes-North and Archimedes-South anyway. Which two division names don't make the cut? How do you define event codes for the API?

Imagine this conversation:
"Curie is the most stacked division ever! Newton 2016 isn't even close!"
"Dude, what are you talking about? Curie is so weak that *random other division* could beat it with two robots!"
"Whaddaya mean, weak? With[list of legendary teams], there's no way it can lose!"
"Those teams aren't in that division, what are you talking about?"
*cue discussion to figure out what's going on, several posts later...*
"OH! I meant Curie South! You're talking about Curie North!"

Sometimes, it's better to just have different names than to use *name**descriptor*.

Probably. The question is going to be whether they keep the two fields for Einstein in each event, or have Mass in one and Energy in the other.
