Chris Squire "painted" many masterpieces, using his bass guitar as a very eloquent "brush." RIP Chris!

That's good news, so long as the students like the Tech for how it helps them, rather than just because it's Tech.

What a wonderful thing technology can be.
 
Color and Light

Compare two images of the Orion Nebula. The first is Andrew Ainslie Common's 1883 photograph. The second is a NASA/ESO collaboration image. The latter is actually 18,000 by 18,000 pixels in size, and you can find it here: http://goo.gl/LEUJ

Too bad. It was definitely better than most new shows I've seen recently. C'est la vie. :-(

What is even worse, given this anti-vaxxer movement (which was kick-started by what is now known to be a deliberately invalidated study), is that after roughly fifty years with the measles vaccine available, most General Practitioners don't know what the measles symptoms are, so many sick children (to young to be vaccinated) may well be misdiagnosed as not having measles, which they were susceptible to only because the misguided parents of other children caused the Herd Immunity to break down.

Those narcissistic parents who effectively cause children who are not theirs to get measles because they refuse to have their own children vaccinated, should be held liable, not just civically, but legally for child endangerment, presuming the infected children all survive. However, for each of the infected children who die from complications of the measles, the "irresponsible" parents should be charged with voluntary manslaughter (for they voluntarily decided to not have their own children vaccinated). Some might consider this to be a bit too harsh, but those same parents rather harshly opted to consider the effects of whether or not to have their own children vaccinated on only their children - not on the children of other parents.

“Who cares if a kid dies from measles, as long as I got to make my choice!”

Arizona Becomes First State to Require Students to Pass Civics Test - NBC News

As the lone Democrat basically said, a Civics Test is useless if only rote memorization is used. If no "laboratory-like" setting is involved, where the students actually engage in the exercise of Doing Civics, with the students arguing the pros and cons, they'll likely not remember anything they forced themselves into learning during an emergency cram-session, in order to pass the test. 
PHOENIX — Arizona on Thursday became the first state in the nation to pass a law requiring high school students to pass a civics exam before graduation.The s...

+Ronald L Regarding cc, the devil is in the details. I was fortunate to have had a Math teacher in high school who not only had an advanced degree in math, but an advanced degree in teaching math. It was a Catholic school, so I avoided Biology, as it was nothing more than Anatomy (and one exposure to formaldehyde in 6th grade was more than sufficient). I took Electronics instead, then waited until after I had graduated from high school and had joined the US navy, before learning about biology on my own (recombinant DNA, etc.). It was 1976 when I left high school, then roughly 6 months later when I went to boot camp, to provide some context.

Love, respect, and compassion for others, in general, is a much better way to live. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but you'll be healthier as well. Nevertheless, there are some people who are so evil, that although you might be inclined to pray for them, it will be very difficult to love them.

Tis a common parasite too, that can be picked up from kitty litter. So you might want to wear gloves while cleaning out the litter box.
 
Scientists have a new theory to explain how "toxo"—a cat-born parasite—can infect humans and control their brains.

+Zaid El-Hoiydi Unfortunately, the standard processes used in Education tend to inhibit the capability of being clever or creative. NCLB essentially required teachers to teach the test - at least for Math & Reading - because of how the end-of-year Evaluation Process was set up.

I fervently hope that Race to the Top is generally successful at eliciting that "sense of wonder" when a student discovers the connection between something learned and phenomen out in the real world.
