Essential point in a critical thinking lessonquoted from the source below:
"Importantly, expert testimony is never to be believed. That is, since The Enlightenment, authorities are never to be believed on their word but to be used as possible guides to point to objective data.

"I will always encourage you to never believe anything I say regarding economics, government, and history. If I’m successful in my teaching you critical thinking skills, you’ll be able to ascertain credibility for factual claims on your own. Indeed, anyone of ethics will never ask for “belief,” but transparently provide evidence for others’ thoughtful consideration....
 "Expert testimony is only any good to the extent it does two things for the reader/audience:

Help understand available facts rather than confuse or obfuscate.
Transparently present facts that are objectively true. That is, the testimony shines light upon data that thereafter anyone can confirm or refute. This removes any need for belief, as the facts will speak for themselves.
Successful expert testimony therefore allows an audience that had been confused by an issue at first to understand it in concept and factual detail. The audience would thereafter be able to look at the data and understand the issue for themselves.

Plus a new book from the author coming ou this year, "What Pet Should I Get." 
 
Today is the anniversary of Dr Seuss’s birthday. He was born 2 March 1904, and died 24 September 1991.
Here are some fabulous writing tips from an icon.

This graph tells it all. I think that some  of the comments fail to apply the salt this article requires. Language warning, more in the comments than in the article.

"Whenever there are mentions of African American homeschoolers, it’s assumed that we homeschool for the same reasons as European-American homeschoolers, but this isn’t really the case," she said. "Because of the unique circumstances of black people in this country, there is really a new story to be told."

In a 2012 report published in the Journal of Black Studies , Mazama surveyed black homeschooling families from around the country and found that most chose to educate their children at home at least in part to avoid school-related racism. Mazama calls this rationale "racial protectionism" and said it is a response to the inability of schools to meet the needs of black students. "We have all heard that the American education system is not the best and is falling behind in terms of international standards," she said. "But this is compounded for black children, who are treated as though they are not as intelligent and cannot perform as well, and therefore the standards for them should be lower."
From http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/the-rise-of-homeschooling-among-black-families/ar-BBhG39O
African American parents are increasingly taking their kids' education into their own hands—and in many cases, it's to protect them from institutional racism and stereotyping.

My husband and I made a pact to delete our Facebooks for the new year, as it's only a time-eater. We both are active on LinkedIn and Google+, and have our own websites. Getting rid of FB resulted in no change to our business/social lifestyle... except to free up previously wasted time checking status updates of cute animal photos or single sentence complaints about one's day. Plus, FB's constant intrusions into privacy raise serious red flags for me.

I don't miss it at all! (^^)v

#Lego  Ever get a cone that big? It would be about 3 feeet tall if scaled to life.
The highest honor one can bestow upon the world's greatest snacks is recreating them in Lego form.

Personally, I don't really care about following fashion trends, but for those who do ..
" modest fashion's profile is rising, thanks in part to an increasingly outspoken number of trend-conscious religious Millennials who stand by the idea that covering up can be glamorous, sexy, and, yes, cool. Corresponding with the rise of Instagram and fashion blogs, these Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Hindus—mostly young women based in the U.S.—took to the Internet to vent their frustrations about limited fashion choices and to share creative tips for elevating their wardrobes. The result: growth and visibility for the modest-fashion movement and a new generation of religious-lifestyle bloggers, designers, and trendsetters from across the faith spectrum."

For a rapidly growing population of plugged-in, religious Millennials, stylishness and faith have never been more compatible.

+Bennett Ruda You can find long if you're willing to go really long. Maxi skirts are fashionable now. But if they don't want that long, the next length around is the midi, which I find too short for myself. My petite daughters can get away with that length, though.
