The Clinton Business

By Glenn T, published on Jun 23, 2008

...eye to this outdated and tragic phenomenon.

Chelsea Clinton is giving speeches on college campuses. Take a moment to digest that. Let it wash over you like a warm summer’s breeze. Again, Chelsea Clinton is giving speeches on college campuses. In a nation whose higher educational system is (ostensibly) the best manifestation of its traditional promises of opportunity and equality, the exercise of our independence and freedoms, and the ability to question the world around us without fear of reprisal, students are gathering to hear Chelsea Clinton speak. Now,... (more)

Raising The Wasteman And Wastewoman

By Chedvah, published on Jun 22, 2008

...to young people without seemingly being overbearing or critical. These young people are willing to engage and are willing to live in the real world but they are perhaps afraid of the reprisals of ‘getting real’ because they will have to work for a living instead of ‘tiffing’ (Stealing) or face the consequences like go to prison for offences they have commited which has an upside to them-education is free, play stations are available, gyms are within access and perhaps their ability to polish their criminal acumen is possible. Thinking back again, which holds the most appeal?

Mirella Caldera: We Are All From The Same Cosmic Soup

By Gary Schwind, published on Jun 21, 2008

...Your father raised you to compete like a man. How has that helped you, especially in modeling?

What I meant by that statement is that he taught me to commit, persevere, focus and not take anyone’s bullshit. It’s a true travesty when you see a girl who gives up on her education, career, goals because she’s pretty and believes she shouldn’t have to break a nail to reach them.

In modeling my father's teachings are not so applicable. A girl’s success does not depend so much on her endurance and commitment but her looks, youth, sex... (more)

Another Satisfied Customer

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 19, 2008

...much like the following which will be laden with profanity and name-calling. This person took it upon herself to “cop a ‘tude” and proceed to tell me all about myself. Of course, what posts such as the following reveal is that this is a person who is seriously lacking in any kind of education or other social graces. The only editing I did to this message is the use of “f****r” and “s**t” in place of the real words. Other than that, the following is reproduced exactly as it was presented to me – poor grammar, misspellings and all.

All I have to say to you is that... (more)

Memoirs Of A Soon To Be-ex-teacher

By Ladymaggic, published on Jun 17, 2008

... teaching. Rather than conform to being dictated to by someone I considered ignorant and rude and also stupid, I took my usual line of resistance, and resigned.

I started a Florist Shop which I ran for 10 years. That was the eighties, a time of parents telling teachers what to do.

Education went on with Madam Kirner becoming the next Minister of Education, and then to my huge surprise, the Premier. It sort of confirmed my opinion of New Politics in Education, as she replaced a much valued and respected Dr Laurie Shears. She was a totally different person, and suddenly Education... (more)

So Close, Yet...

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 12, 2008

...the Milwaukee Brewers on September 17, 1982. He pitched for 2â…” innings, but tore his rotator cuff in the process, ending his career. He is one of the few pitchers to face two future Hall of Famers as his first two batters—Paul Molitor and Robin Yount.

Wever continued his education during the off-season while rapidly climbing through the Yankee system at the University of California at Berkeley from where he received a BA in English Literature.

Now retired from the game of baseball, Wever owns the Horseshoe Tavern, a popular and legendary San Francisco bar, is... (more)

Burgos Case Mirrors Mcmartin Trial UPDATE

By john robertson, published on Jun 7, 2008

...why they did not purge the taped recordings of the telephone call, if indeed it is their regular proceedure; to which again she had no answer.

Also like the McMartin Preschool Case, the prosecution has sought to bring in the last minute, and seemingly coached testimonies, of a special education student as well as a surprise witness who, at the time of his testimony, was incarcerated. It was apparent to the packed court room that the low functioning youth who testified was trying his very best to say the right thing. Often times, before answering the defense attorney's questions, he... (more)

You Have The Right To Fail

By icanluvulongtime, published on May 16, 2008

I am a fortunate person who has the opportunity to work in a variety of capacities and one thing I get to do is work with students. . There is always something new in the field of education and the experts have much to tell us about how we are doing it all wrong. The truth is however, we are doing it all wrong.

One thing students are burdened with is a lot, and I mean a LOT of homework. This is not your Grandma’s homework with “new math” and weekly spelling lists, oh no, it’s calculus, chapters and chapters of scientific data and English literature with stacks of books to be finished... (more)
