Here is the case for why single-sex schooling is not the magic bullet some educators think it is but is, rather, ineffective and even detrimental to chlidren’s development

Is there a way to stop G+ from displaying the "Getting Started" page when I reload it after a long time?

In case any of you want to see pictures of what I was doing over break! (Spoiler alert: I was visiting national parks in Utah and Arizona!)

It was all pretty great! We went to Zion national park, the south rim of the Grand Canyon (I hear the north rim tends to be a better place to visit, but it's closed this early in the year), and to Sedona. They were all really beautiful places, with a lot of nice walks to do.

Apparently Google+'s names policy still sucks. A friend just had his account suspended because they didn't believe his real name was his real name. :(

How on earth does Google+ determine the order of things in my feed? I'm seeing things posted yesterday (with no comments or other activity) near the top, with things posted recently way, way below them.

Kind of disappointed that +SparkFun Electronics would write "Just don't tell your wife you're hacking the Roomba..." in their new product post and then delete comments pointing out that it's sexist edit: my bad; I thought comments were in chronological order, so I missed a few comments when I checked later.

Edit 2: Sparkfun replied, and edited the original post. Thank you!

+Brennen Bearnes: thank you! I understand that it was never intended to be sexist, and I appreciate you taking the time to reply here and to edit the original post! My faith in Sparkfun is restored :)
