+Linc Fessenden -- Starting a new thread for this question to you. If the Republican party is engaging in appropriate behavior, then what is the purpose of H.R. 368? If they valued their position and believe that their position would be supported by the majority of Americans, then why did they create a rule to circumvent a majority vote coming from the floor?

So the new office is (mostly) setup. I need to take in some more history books to fill out the shelves some more!!! (Squee!) I met an anthropology colleague today who is interested in partnering up on a global learning study I am getting started. I plan on meeting with my G.A. this week and getting started there. I'll see what kinds of things he is interested in doing, then we'll get rolling!

Classes start in 7 days. At this time next week I will be holding "office hours." I'm assuming that means I will be sitting in my office revising my Intro lesson for the second session.

So we are upset about Slap Hillary, which was put up by a a group called, "Republican Super PAC." They state, "We didn’t see the liberal media bemoaning this “Slap Palin” game when it came out!
They only care when it’s the candidate they support for president." (http://thehillaryproject.com/games/)

The difference is this. As near as I can tell, the Slap Palin URL and website is not associated with a specific political party/PAC. There is not a party agenda, or political force behind the game.  Both "games" are reprehensible, and I don't think any women's rights advocates would argue that either is acceptable. When a national organization that is openly attempting to influence upcoming elections through the depiction of violence towards women, I get worried.

We can be reasonably sure that the coordinators of this group are Republicans, probably with serious political influence. Violence against women is a real thing and should not be condoned in any way shape or form by those individuals supposedly "leading" our county.

TL;DR - The problem is that a super PAC is depicting violence against women, not that it's been done before.

So I stumbled upon the MOOC that my alma mater has put up for educators. I am saddened that this was apparently designed by a very few individuals who listened to no feedback from the outside. Many of the people I knew who were involved in this project at the beginning are not listed on it now. It looks very unappealing and restates many of the same tropes I heard coming from these people for years. Lots of re-hashing, very little innovation and allow the buzz-words to abound! 

Full disclosure, I did not enroll in the course, I only looked at the introductory material and recognized all the same mostly meaningless blather I've heard before. It is clear to me that dissenting views were exempted from the creative process, thus producing a completely political product of mediocrity.

You have to question any political agenda (including your own) that is only against something. If you only ever post negative political messages, then you are probably doing it wrong. I'm not saying that you don't have a valid point, but if you're only against things, then people will quickly start to marginalize and ignore your opinion.

Absolutely no Shenanigans. I just know when I've met someone who is smarter than me, as well as someone who doesn't need additional letters to compensate for his own insecurities... ;-)

Those, "In the know," have pretty much stopped using the phrase, "Year of the Linux Desktop," seriously. There are the occasional barbs and jests, but the phrase is pretty much passé. It's not that we don't want massive adoption of Linux, but that's not the point anymore. The goal is the most robust system that can be built.

When are we going to get the message in Education? I sent a message to a friend of mine on Twitter regarding the digital revolution in education. The article I read stated, "I strongly believe that technology is going to completely revolutionize the classroom." This was not an article from 1999 or even 2005. This was a very recent post.

We need to spend less time talking about the technological revolution in the classroom, and spend more time working to understand why it has not happened and what can help. Don't talk about the revolution, be the revolution...

And in response to your reply, Dr. Young, I wonder how much of the breakdown of time spent with the digital revolution is Angry Birds? :-D

I have seen many unprofessional behaviors while my daughter attended this daycare. Staff are regularly on their cell phones checking Facebook, e-mail or texting. There has not been a visit to pick up or drop off my daughter where I have NOT seen a cell phone out. The unfortunate part of this is that the so-called director is as guilty of this behavior as the staff! I have also seen staff tell a child to, "Sit down and shut up!" The directors, when they are present, have very little professional decorum. I have often had to hunt down one of the directors in order to pay my daughter's tuition! I understand that I can pay online, but this process is both sketchy and annoying. The interface is somewhat non-intuitive and difficult to turn off. I had to completely delete my profile from the system in order to stop the payments! Aside from the unprofessional behaviors of both staff and management, I have observed that all staff are not treated the same. My daughter's teacher was phenomenal. She and I had many conversations about childhood development and childcare, and she really understands that children need love above all. There was a child who was crying during her lunch break and she was told to get out of the room, but another member of the staff, coincidentally the same worker who was telling children to shut up, was allowed to deal with the crying child on her lunch break. Overall, I would not return my child to this location. Since my daughter was to be transitioned out of her current classroom into a new classroom in the coming weeks, I have removed her. The professional and polite demeanor you see during your tour will not be the same behavior you see after enrollment.

It's a CiCi's, just like any CiCi's that you might find, but the difference is the staff. Very attentive and caring! My son cannot eat milk, but they were more than happy to provide us with the opportunity to bring his Vegan cheese and make a pizza. It was very good! I now remember why we used to go to CiCi's all the time. If you want a CiCi's in the Raleigh area, this is definitely the one to pick!

After pushing the button twice to get someone to take my order, I had the fortune to wait rather a long time. This was particularly entertaining as I got to enjoy the smell of gently wafting garbage. Apparently speediness and cleanliness are not among their priorities. Waitress came out and complained about a new manager, claiming to have been in a meeting. I witnessed this meeting: it was at a picnic table and involved three of the employees toking on a cigarette. If my son had not been desperately wanting the popcorn chicken, we would have left this place in the dust; I suggest you do the same.

This used to be a nice jump house, but apparently the owners are not at all interested in keeping the place up. All the equipment is the same as it was over a year ago, no updates at all. The toddler area does not even inflate properly, which is really disappointing. Based on the lint in all the cracks the staff do not clean very often. Unfortunately, I think this bounce house will be gone in less than a year. Used to be full of kids, now there are only a handful.

I got the 10 MBP internet service. I averaged 1MBP on a good day. When I ran their test, I got the 10 that they advertised, but it didn't happen anywhere else, not even close. Uploading to my server brought the entire network to a standstill in our house. Attempted to rectify the situation several times, they did not seem interested in helping me or doing anything. Called to cancel the service, it took 15 minutes of listening to their "solutions" to actually cancel. If you have great solutions, please give them before I'm so frustrated with your service that I don't care what you will do. Customer service also liked to pin the difficulties on me saying things like, "We're sorry that you do not understand..." I understand, you are a very poor company.
