The school year is ending in the United States and I hear a lot of chatter about grades. The most common complaint I hear is that one kid or another scored high on tests but ended the year with a disappointing grade for not turning in all of the homework. Does that grading system make sense when the point of the homework is to prepare kids for tests? In the real world, results are what matter the most, as long as you arrive at the results legally...

Fun!
Simple things are often more difficult to create as they require much more brain power to generate as compared to the most intricate stuff.

Ah, Henry Ford. He had it right after all.
The fundamental law of capitalism is that if workers have no money, businesses have no customers. That’s why the extreme, and widening, wealth gap in our economy presents not just a moral challenge, but an economic one, too. In a capitalist system, rising inequality creates a death spiral of falling demand that ultimately takes everyone down.

This time, it's Tracie McMillan, author of a great new book on food politics. Her crime: she's a "young single white woman, overeducated."

Not sure I agree with all of this, but most of her advice is excellent...

Do you really think this is true? Why or why not?
