I have yet another way to do Common Core addition. Exponentiate, multiply, and take the logarithm. Let's call it inverse-slide-rule addition. If your child doesn't learn and understand THIS method along with all the other methods used in teaching to the Common Core test (they say Common Core is a test, not a teaching method/technique, but they have "coincidentally" shown up together), your child doesn't understand addition!

I've read that Irving Berlin had such a transposing piano because he could only play in one key, but I find it quite implausible that the one key he could play in is F sharp! Was that really true? If so, there's got to be an amazing story there. As anyone who has taken even the first piano lesson knows, you start learning in the key of C, and the key of F sharp is usually the LAST key you learn, and never the only!

In light of the recent Tesla Motors patent release (http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/all-our-patent-are-belong-you), this 30-second Mercedes Benz commercial deserves more views.

Boticelli is a "Friend of Bill W." (member of AA and/or other 12-step programs) as are virtually all "drug treatment professionals" in the US, and this undoubtedly affects his attitudes and beliefs on the "disease of" addiction. For more on Boticelli, search for the news story with this title:

"Streisand Effect now named Mario Costeja González Effect."

Congratulations, Mr. Gonzalez, your bankruptcy record is officially unindexed from European Google sites, but you're now as famous as Barbara Streisand's beachfront house, whose photograph she famously tried to have removed from the Internet.

Yeah, I've deleted a tweet a minute after I tweeted it, but only because I misspelled something or I posted the wrong link, and posted the correction before deleting the original.  Anyone who sees my deleted tweets won't find anything too horribly embarrassing (perhaps it's the tweets I DON'T delete that I should be ashamed of).

There's a pertinent book, "The End of Work: The Decline of the Global Labor Force and the Dawn of the Post-Market Era" by Jeremy Rifkin (1994, and an "Updated edition" 2004). He ascribes what was then future unemployment to increases i automation, and concedes there are no easy answers. I've read the last two-thirds (in which he talks about solutions) of the 1994 edition, and he discusses reducing the work week to well under 40 hours per week with the idea that more people will at least have jobs, even if they're effectively part-time. I've read about practices being done in Europe (according to his website he has consulted with European leaders on unemployment).

But the idea of "spreading around the work" to more workers working less time is only a stop-gap measure. The high unemployment since the 2007 economic  crash seems to be as much or more because of increasing technology rather than just because of the long, drawn-out economic recovery. Rising unemployment will continue because we will need fewer people to provide for all of humanity's needs.

A short but important message for those around metro Atlanta, and those who recognize the importance of college radio. #SaveWRAS

What's that song? Sounds like something I might have heard on WRAS in the 1970s. Oh, and #SaveWRAS

Thank you, Youtube, for not telling me the comment I was posting to a live Youtube video was also going to be made as a complete new post on my Google Plus page. And the cat was gone by the time I typed the comment, or G+ captured the screenshot, or whatever. I'm glad I don't use Google for email, else any email I send could end up as a Google Plus post.

Oh, wait, Gmail...
