When I look up close, I see the repaired, reshingled, weather protected porch roof, and the scraped, patched, and repainted pillars, but I also see the unpainted, unscraped, unrepaired parts that will take many more hours.
When I stand back, I see the beautifully redone shingles and the glowing white columns. Three cheers for perspective!
One of my favorite podcasts (Hidden Brain) interviewing one of my favorite thinkers (Daniel Kahnemann sp?). Just like judges don't like to turn decisions over to algorithms even if it would make their work better, teachers don't either. If we did, as a group, we science teachers, at least, would figure out the best research and embrace it rather than continuing so hard with old, status quo approaches.

Made a quick meal from odds and ends. My kids want me to remember the recipe:
Mashed potatoes, salt, butter, sour cream, milk to taste and texture preference.
Brown and cut bite sized pieces of Andouille (sp?) sausage and chicken.
Add ~16 oz crushed tomatoes (pretty thick), 16 oz water, and 3-4 tsp Better than Bouillon.
Salt and pepper to taste. 2 Tbsp brown sugar (optional).
Various frozen veggies. Simmer more.
Recommend mixing the two parts on your plate or bowl.
I had to fix typos because my screen was blurry.
I'm trying to figure out a platform for creating open educational resource chemistry assessment questions. I want professors to be able to import and export the questions created with different learning management systems with all the learning technology and question test interoperability standards. So far, I can use D2L (supported by my school) with a clunky GUI editor. I'd love to enter LaTeX formulas with the mhchem package, but I can't find a platform I can access that has it integrated.
"Our model shows that a shuffling of resources so that the worst off are lifted up and the top end is brought down can dramatically reduce stealing, and hence increase trust."
"Severe sentences can make individuals so much worse off that there may be no feasible legitimate way for them to ever regain the happy zone above the threshold. By imposing a really big cost on them through a huge punishment, you may be committing them to a life where the only recourse is ever more desperate attempts to leapfrog themselves back to safety via illegitimate means."
I didn't learn about this MLK Jr. until I sought out his speeches in my mid 20s. I have lived in too many places that even resisted calling it Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but called it Civil Rights Day, instead. Places where King is honored to think of his victories as done. I hope to honor his fights against poverty, racism, and injustice that we are still fighting, today.
Teacher, Biophysicist, Father. I love dance, working outdoors, learning intensely, and dabbling in many things.
