Any chance I have 40 friends willing to share $40 to help the kids get clean drinking water for my 40th birthday?

Jonah really wanted me to share his video request for friends to donate to his school fundraiser on Friday: a 5-hour walkathon in the October 90° sun. Help fund the youths' art & science enrichment programs, field trips, and the like…  https://www.walkstarter.org/page/bRx4iB4R0P #fundraiserforkids

"After negotiating safe accommodations with the Rocky Point School District, [peanut allergic] Virginia’s mother was astounded by an 11th-hour surprise. The local teachers’ union has refused to require teachers to refrain from eating nut products in common rooms – such as the rooms Virginia will visit for music and art classes."

This, among so many other similar stories/reasons, is what terrifies Carrie & me for Ben's future in schools. Battling a lack of awareness is already a herculean challenge… battling those who feel entitled to intentionally endanger children (not to mention adults) out of a sense of self-righteousness & entitlement is just bewildering. 

As someone who has been strongly pro-union and pro-teachers for so long, the teachers unions' fight against children's safety over stocking epinephrine, allowance to administer epinephrine, and even provide the most basic accommodations to children with life-threatening allergies makes me wonder if this kind of behavior is what turned so much of our country against unions as well as towards private school.
The first day of school Wednesday for a kindergarten student on Long Island meant health worries for the 5-year-old girl’s mother.

Great writeup of the state of #epipen bill still in California State Assembly, what's at stake, and the (sad) opposition to it.
The Assembly Education Committee made the right decision on a bill that allows schools to stock epinephrine auto-injectors, and another that would gently apply the brakes on a badly done Proposition 227 repeal.

If you live in California, please send a note to Gov. Jerry Brown to encourage signing of the new #EpiPenBill SB01266 to ensure all children in public schools have access to epinephrine. 25% of 1st time food allergy reactions happen in a school. No more easily preventable #foodallergy reactions/deaths at schools.

Android users with more than one Google Account on their phone/tablet should check out the latest +Google Chrome beta (to save needing to sign in within the browser to any account already on the phone).
Google has a hit on its hands with Material Design in my opinion, which is why it's great to see it already making its way into some products ahead of Android..

Pad Thai was flavorful, service was quick for pickup, the staff very friendly, and (and this is an important "and") they have what Midwesterners know as "crab rangoon" (e.g. deep fried, cream-cheese-filled wonton wrappers folded up into a 4-pointed appetizer).

Greeted by name most times, this neighborhood Jamba Juice offers great gluten-free smoothies that can satisfyingly replace a meal most days (especially if you ask for them to add peanut butter). Frequent Buy One/Get One discounts, too, and it's conveniently next to several restaurants, a drugstore, bagel shop and a Starbucks (so you can fold several trips into one).
