Need to practice more visual/ multi-modal in writing courses. Community college students are already experts in their ecologies, but the college insists 19th century alaphbetic-dominant writing genres.

"The fetichization of argument, the genre in which we primarily assess writing, also perpetuates inequality. Like language conventions, argument is taught differently in different social classes. "

From the time my daughter was born, my wife and I took her out to restaurants—not to annoy the other diners, mind you, she was usually very well behaved---but to expose her palate to as much variety as possible and socialize her early to new and unfamiliar environments.

There are some great people using growth mindset who have really inspired and Dweck's own work I think is excellent. No, she is not a political activist (who knows if she might become one someday?)... and I'm guessing there was also some before/after in Paul Thomas's own life where he became more concerned with looking at everything in terms of the big picture as well. Dismissing her work because it is not political enough and/or because it is has been exploited by others in bad ways does not sit well with me. I fight the same battle with online teaching, where people who do not know me dismiss what I do out of hand because I teach online. It's very frustrating to have my work judged negatively by people who think all online learning consists of corporatized MOOCs, and I am sure Dweck experiences the same frustrations but even worse, as she is the subject of special ad feminam attacks, often without any mention of her actual work.

Great hospitality. Extensive selection of imported foods, candy and other sweets. Great selection of licorice. Fresh chocolate, fudge. (I'm less interested in pottery and arts, but seems tourist representative). One of the best stores in OTS.

I used to like at the Runway, but the service is getting lazy and the beer selection is bland. Server today couldn't bother visit after delivering food, never offered silverware, offered plastic instead of a glass pint, and I had to search her to find the close tab. Food -- hamburgers getting lazy -- miser with bacon portions. Beer essentially the standards -- has only one Saint Arnold (a local beer) and not even the popular Saint Arnolds. Overall, the Runway is down poorly as Mr. C's did same.

I'm not impressed with bread/bun, but patty was good and mushrooms grilled perfectly. Counter person doesn't seem really interesting, not helpful.
