An interesting overview with incisive comments, several in this direction: "I keep looking for all of this 'rigor' in STEM majors. What I see are a bunch of mostly bright young people who are very good at learning procedures, but very weak when it comes to designing even simple experiments, framing hypotheses for testing in an acceptable manner, or explaining what they are doing."
Number of bachelor's degrees awarded fell 8.7 percent between 2012 and 2014, study finds.

This is one of the "recommended for you" G+ sites I received in email.  As a fan of the Christmas shows on Hallmark channel, ABC Family, Lifetime and others, I found this very entertaining.
Last year I made it my mission to watch every ABC Family Christmas movie I could find. And guys, it might be the most fun I’ve ever had. From kidnappings to angels to magic snow globes to dates in the spirit of Groundhog Day: ABC Family movies are bananas in the best possible way. They also tend

I was certain public schools should not have preschool programs, having read John Holt, Neil Postman, and others, years ago, on the failures of public schools in teaching poor children.  This article supports my fears for the next generation.
Early childhood development expert Nancy Carlsson-Paige: 'Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that we would have to defend children’s right to play."

Though focusing on college students, some of these exercises could be useful at later stages of life.

Interesting media filters.
 
I assume since it was shared private they didn't want it to be public so h/t to the OP
Some conservatives and police unions would have you believe Beyonce and her Super Bowl halftime performance has inspired recent spate of violence directed at police. In fact, white men are responsible for seven of the eight cop killings this year.

Canada’s expedited program to admit Syrian refugees is an example other prosperous nations should follow.

From PBS NewsHour: Here’s a map of all the mass shootings in 2015
The NewsHour has updated its map that documents all the U.S. mass shootings in 2015 alone. As details surrounding the San Bernardino, California, shooting gradually emerged Wednesday evening, President Barack Obama told CBS News that the U.S. has “a pattern now of mass shooting in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.”

Star Trek's the 50th anniversary coming up.  The series debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons on NBC.
It’s only logical it would come to this. The rejuvenation of Star Trek on the big screen, eventually, had to do the same for the franchise’s native medium, television. And after months of rumors and speculation, it’s actually happening—Star Trek is coming back to TV.

Our 9-year-old cat slipped out the front door and was lost for 3 weeks. When we got him back, we immediately made an appointment with his veterinarian. The vet tech and the veterinarian were concerned about his condition and treated him very well. His veterinarian also suggested we do some lab work we had previously postponed while he was more "cooperative." (Speedy is usually a complaining patient.) We have been bringing our pets to this clinic for 26 years and have always been pleased with the care and concern of the medical staff. The front desk staff, though, often seems extremely busy. We are usually put on hold when we call for an appointment and find all the staff on the phone when we arrive to check in.

This is a great place and reminds me of the Children's Museum in Chicago. Our five-year-old grandson enjoyed the morning we spent there with him recently. I *do* miss the changing exhibits the former Austin Children's Museum used to have, though. I'm wondering if, after a few visits, our grandson will grow tired of having the same experience (of course, it isn't always the *same* experience because as he grows older, he gets something new out of each one). We had a membership for several years and used to visit as soon as the exhibits changed.
