mob mentality. people on this thread dont even understand the ruling. tt, the comparison toRead More sports is absurd. baseball 8% black. hockey? swimming? etc. i dont hear complaints by minority leaders complaing about every facet of life. there is a belief that low test scores , a dearth of black ceo's , etc must be explained by some measure of systemic discrimination. women do it. minorities. heck go to any youth sports program and youll find parents complaing about playing time and favoritism. people complain. sometimes theyre right.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

"Very few have the ability to use critical thinking skills to analyze information. In fact, itRead More sometimes seems painful for them to think out of the box. Our students should be able to understand the reasoning that needs to be applied to find solutions, especially when it isn't exactly what they've seen before, so they can apply those skill to address the many issues they will encounter in the future. " :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: The Common Core Standards require critical thinking skills. It should be a great improvement over what we had previously.

"IF there were meaningful differences between the CC -"aligned" curricula."Read More Read the Standards, Jennifer. It really doesn't take much to develop curriculum that aligns with the standard. All of the traditional maths that we took as kids can be 'CC aligned' with minor adjustments--adding more 'story' problems to the mix would go a long way toward meeting the Standards.
Jeanne Miller April 23, 2014 at 07:37 am
Another great thing the Common Core will do for our students is to prepare them for theRead More "flipped classroom," where they view lectures (online) as homework, then work problems collaboratively in class, with the help of the teacher. This will prepare them for college, since the flipped class is the new model for teaching. This puts more responsibility on the students to be prepared for class so that they can engage in learning activities...and they really learn! A good analogy is, if someone drives you to a location, you may or may not be able to get there yourself another time. If you drive yourself, you'll remember!

Dorie, stowing away on a plane is a crime. And no, the boy himself did not pose a threat. But theRead More fact that he (anyone) can get that close to a plane poses a threat. I have to take off my flippin' shoes and get patted down, but apparently you can just walk up and plant a bomb in the wheel well.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.

@M- Your Apple device is a closed system which would make it really hard for it to be hacked. YouRead More are more likely to be exploited through a Phishing scam where you get an email that looks like it is from a trusted company telling you there's a problem with your account (it could claim to be your bank account, Apple account, Amazon or credit card company, etc) once you log into their fake site they ask for personal information like social security numbers, credit card info, etc. The other thing we see in regards to email accounts being hacked are poor passwords and using public wifi. Hope that helps a bit.

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.
