What is not mentioned, is that after he shot the UNARMED young girl, he dragged her into anotherRead More room, calling her 'a bitch' and then as she lay there, mortally wounded, he SHOVED HIS GUN UP AND UNDER HER CHIN, SHOT HER, WITH THE BULLET GOING THROUGH HER BRAIN!!! He called it a CLEAN FINISHING SHOT!!!

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
Susan Harris April 23, 2014 at 08:18 pm
"About the "socialist" or anti-American aspect- I know what people are talkingRead More about,.....There are to my knowledge, no CC social studies textbooks yet. It is the textbook publishers themselves (who helped write the CC and will produce all further materials anyway) who are twisted in this way. School boards don't actually read the textbooks they order....I didn't notice either until the CC thing came up. Then I said "What the hell is this?" ................................................................. .................................................................................. To put your mind at ease, what you were reading in your child's social studies books did not come from standards developed from the Common Core. CC standards only covers the content areas of literacy and math. On a separate note, High school history teachers, including myself, have long opined that there is a general void of knowledge coming from students in the lower grades. Since CT's American history standards received a failing grade from the notable Thomas B. Fordham foundation this is not surprising. But it is unacceptable. Just as our Governor, Commissioner, and State Board decided to substantially improve math and literacy teaching with the CC standards, we should look at the neighboring states of Mass. and NY who both rate in the upper tier- A, with their standards in American history.

The Common Core web-site is a marketing pitch for Common Core. You must look beyond that and followRead More the money for the truth. People that are pro-Common Core like to say the same things over and over like, anti-Common Core people did not read the standards. They have no proof of that but they like to say it as if it validates Common Core... I could easily say people that are pro-Common Core are clueless about the realities of Common Core and don't really get what it truly is, but does that get us closer to best serving our children? No. I do hope people are diggin into both sides, and not just the sales pitch, but really learning about this because it is too important. *****************Everything that is anti-Common Core in this string has an article with names, dates, groups that met, etc. on this Facebook Page: Northville MI Parents for Educational Excellence There is also StopCommonCoreinMichigan. I hope the pro-CC people have done their homework and truly understand what they are approving. ************The Northville Facebook page has several examples on it of anti-American and pro-socialist materials. These are in the English course. Take a look at the porno book excerpts there, as well as the Percepolis book reveiw. ****************People are busy - if people all over the country are up in arms about something - there is probably something to it - please take the time to dig in.
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 09:32 pm
Also on the Northville MI Parents for Educational Excellence page you can see links to the tests toRead More see how bias they are. Teachers will teach to the tests and if they are teaching something you don't like - too bad because it is on the test! *****There is also a link to the social studies standards. The social studies standards and science standards are liberal-bias, anti-American and actually just not accurate in a lot of cases. They tell our kids that they as citizens are meant to follow all the rules of the big bad government, for example. Things that made this country great and are still in existence, are few and far between - like the government is for the people and by the people and has limited powers... You wont find what the powers that be (follow the money) don't want the kids to learn. ******We all know what Hitler and many others have said about how to get to a nation and that is thru the kids minds... The proof is all there - please dig! Read the tests. ******We all WISH this was just "minimum standards"!

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

@Tim H: Such a great point on the text-to-speech. I haven't explored this fully yet, but I justRead More started an Audible account. I downloaded a Doctor Who book with my free credit. But I got the Audible account for precisely what you said: Being able to read, switch to listening, then go back to reading. Maybe another blog post is in the works......
Tim H April 23, 2014 at 11:52 am
@Danielle, the audible only works good on your smartphone or an MP3 player. You can use it at theRead More gym when reading may not be as convenient (try rowing while reading -- listening works). Or go for a walk outdoors while listening to a book... just be careful crossing streets. I believe there are pronunciations issues with the text-to-speech as it tries to simulate speech instead of being an actual recording like the audio books. Each has it's advantages.
Christine Hunnefeld April 23, 2014 at 07:30 pm
