Jesus' favorite prayer

Source (Mark 12:29)

 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[

The Evolution of Math Teaching
1960s: A peasant sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his selling price. What is his profit?
1970s: A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his selling price, that is, $8. What is his profit?
1970s (new math): A farmer exchanges a set P of potatoes with set M of money. The cardinality of the set M is equal to 10, and each element of M is worth $1. Draw ten big dots representing the elements of M. The set C of production costs is composed of two big dots less than the set M. Represent C as a subset of M and give the answer to the question: What is the cardinality of the set of profits?
1980s: A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His production costs are $8, and his profit is $2. Underline the word "potatoes" and discuss with your classmates.
1990s: A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for $10. His or her production costs are 0.80 of his or her revenue. On your calculator, graph revenue vs. costs. Run the POTATO program to determine the profit. Discuss the result with students in your group. Write a brief essay that analyzes this example in the real world of economics.

Let me see if I understand this.  To become a Glass Explorer you must write in 50 words or less why you should be part of the Project.  If chosen, you will pay $1500 plus tax and attend a special pick-up experience, in person, in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles, at your own expense.  If chosen, you perform some interesting activity, again, at your own expense, and up load the video to the Project.  The created video becomes the property of the Project and any profits made from the sale the the glasses and/or the videos created are also the property of the Project.  Please explain why anyone would do this, and do not say "For the experience".

They are not looking for tunas with good taste, but tunas that taste good. You obviously have a bitter taste.

And not much of a sense of humor maybe?

Seeking Glass Explorers: goo.gl/PbKWr

Last year we showed Glass to the world for the first time - we jumped out of airships, crashed New York Fashion Week and even took a ride on the subway. It’s been an exhilarating journey so far and there’s a lot more to come, but we can’t go it alone. We’re developing new technology that is designed to be unobtrusive and liberating, and so far we’ve only scratched the surface of the true potential of Glass.

Now we want you to get involved and that’s why today we’re expanding our Glass Explorer Program. We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. Glass is still in the early stages, so we expect there will be some twists and turns along the way. While we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting. 

We’d love to make everyone a Glass Explorer, but we’re starting a bit smaller. So, if you want to be one of the first Explorers, go to www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one to find out how.

I am Cliff Cohen, I am a retired Software Analyst.  During my career, I worked with all branches of the U S military, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Federal Aviation Administra­tion, the Mint, the Justice Department, and the National Institutes of Health.  My work included independent verification and validation (IV&V), the analysis, development and modification of a wide variety of scientific and engineering systems, algorithm development, analysis and repair of software for numerical controls, design, analysis and calibration of process control systems, design of firmware for microprocessor tools, design and management data bases and data base software, and management local area net­works. 
During my career, I rescued National Institutes of Health’s Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center’s blood bank system from the dreaded Y2K monster, and save the Space Shuttle program $1 billion.

Vatican disagrees,  then again, the Vatican also insisted for centuries that the Earth is flat and the Sun orbits around the Earth.

Alright, Tea Party, you win, let's drop Obamacare and fund the Affordable Care Act instead.   Polls have definitely shown that more people favor the ACA.

I am curious, was it a robo-invite?  In any case, I am here.  Beware of what you ask for, you may get it.

Republicans:  They are your candidates, and this is their campaign.  Want to ask me again why I usually vote Democratic?

Bragging rights
I rescued the blood bank at the National Institutes of Health from the dreaded Y2K Monster. A tool I co-developed saved the Space Shuttle program $1,000,000,000 (approx.), and I received $175 for suggesting that they use it.
