FYI….Trump WH To CNN: Shove It, We Can Regulate Insufferable Journalists…Like Jim Acosta; UPDATE: Judge Overseeing Lawsuit Is Trump-Appointed




The Editor:  Are you in support of rules and laws being enforced, LL ?

Just Call Me Crazy Cat:  You betcha,  rules and laws keep any group of living things functioning in a productive manner, ants, bees, people, they all try to make things work.

Here is a breakdown in common manners and polite behavior.  If you want to be the story ( like Megyn Kelly )  you are unprofessional.  Go cry to your mamma.

This school bus driver had fourteen ( 14 ) suspensions of his driver license.  The parents should sue the school administrators.

The Florida election officials should have been fired years ago, and banned from any public office.

Google thought they could by-pass the criminal court system for sexually abused employees.  This is one reason they should be broken up as a monopoly, along with Facebook, and Amazon.

Most of these creeps could use some exercise.


Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Cave Nebula in Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Sulfur
Image Credit & Copyright: Chuck Ayoub

Explanation: What’s inside this cosmic cave? A stellar nursery 10 light-years deep. The featured skyscape is dominated by dusty Sh2-155, the Cave Nebula. In the telescopic image, data taken through a narrowband filters tracks the nebular glow of hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur, colors that together form the Hubble Palette. About 2,400 light-years away, the scene lies along the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy toward the royal northern constellation of Cepheus. Astronomical explorations of the region reveal that it has formed at the boundary of the massive Cepheus B molecular cloud and the hot, young stars of the Cepheus OB 3 association. The bright rim of ionized hydrogen gas is energized by radiation from the hot stars, dominated by the bright star just to the left of the cave entrance. Radiation driven ionization fronts are likely triggering collapsing cores and new star formation within.

Math through the Ages

 Image result for pics of math through the years

Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this?

Because of the evolution in teaching math:

Teaching Math In 1950’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?


Teaching Math In 1960’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.  His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?


Teaching Math In 1970’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?


Teaching Math In 1980’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.

Your assignment: Underline the number 20.


Teaching Math In 1990’s:

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes?

(There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it’s ok. )


Teaching Math Today:

Un ha chero vende una carretada de maderapara $100. El costo de la Producciones es $80. Cuanto dinero ha hecho?
