Very interesting take on the role that web filters play in holding back 21st Century education - from a very respected, albeit atypical source.
But outdated web filters make that mission quite difficult.

ICYMI-my position at MCOE was eliminated on July 1 due to budget cuts. So, for now, working on:@level33org. Let's do something cool together! Available and open to different ideas and possibilities!

Looking forward to checking out this performance!
Travel to Middle Earth with an enchanting tale of Hobbits, wizards, dragons and one ring to rule them all as Merced County students present "The Hobbit."

By far the best thing I have read yet on the whole Trayvon/Zimmerman media circus. Extremely thoughtful and powerful. http://goo.gl/ApiR6X
When we signed on to do reality shows that fed into the media's stereotypes of black men, we ingrained an image of Trayvon Martin so overwhelming that who he actually may have been didn't matter anymore.

Fantastic and authentic Mexican food. Very small place, but they do a great job taking care of you. Personally I recommend the spare ribs, but I have not had anything there that wasn't very good to excellent.
