Honest University Commercial


All I'm saying is that big news stories lead people to debate furiously about things they don't quite get, like foreign/fiscal policy & tech

"If the brain evolved for the purpose of speech, it's odd that it evolved to a capacity way beyond speech," Limb said. "So a brain that evolved to handle musical communication—there has to be a relationship between the two. I have reason to suspect that the auditory brain may have been designed to hear music and speech is a happy byproduct."

Can backyards produce enough food to be a major food source for a city?

Here's a study from Melbourne, Australia: 'My research was about urban food production within a 70 km radius of Melbourne CBD. The data collection period ran from July 2012 to Ju
ly 2013. This was deliberately designed to capture inter-seasonal yield. In all, 15 households took part in the research and each participant contributed 12 weeks’ worth of data.

The result was impressive. The collective plot size was 1,096 sq.m. with a total yield of 388.73 kg worth of fruits, vegetables, nuts, honey and meat. A total of 1,015 eggs were also recorded. The study found that backyard food production was capable of producing a great diversity of edibles from common kitchen garden herbs to less commonly cultivated fruits and vegetables, as well as less commercially available varieties like amaranth, apple cucumber, acorn squash, butter squash, babaco, cape gooseberry, edible canna, elderflower, gem squash, loganberry, nettle, oca, orache, purslane, rat-tailed radish, viola flower, warrigal green, white mulberry and yacon. In total, 101 different types of nuts, fruits, vegetables were generated during the study period.'

“The politics, paperwork, meaningless “training,” waste of time and resources, and over/under-involved parents are wearing teachers out,” wrote one survey respondent.
“The workload on teachers continues to increase every year,” wrote another. “There is always extra administrative work that takes away from teaching time. There is also extra testing and reporting… on and on it goes every year.”

This is a VERY interesting and previously untold history. Before multimedia, raves, multi-screen desktops, they were all made possible through a concerted effort by Margaret Mead, Gregory Bateson, the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, John Cage, the USIS, Buckminster Fuller, the Museum of Modern Art, that started as a response to fascism.

Today, we have the most popular reading software in the world: Accelerated Reader. And with it, we’ve helped teachers inspire millions of children to become lifelong readers and learners. Each and every school day students pass an average of 1.8 million AR Quizzes.
But Accelerated Reader is just one of our award-winning, research-proven solutions helping educators accelerate learning for all. We’ve also created products for math and formative assessment that have been just as ground-breaking as Accelerated Reader. In fact, students completed more than 35 million Accelerated Math assignments and took more than 38 million STAR assessments via our hosted servers in the last school year.
