It’s another dangerous lie that kids don’t catch #COVID. Our school teachers are so worried why have you told them to scrap bubbles, mask-wearing, and social distancing when cases of the delta variant are at their peak. Why can’t our kids get vaccinated?

Those who are unwilling to sacrifice a small part of their quality of life and daily comforts for the good of our country seem to be making the loudest noise right now. But the statistics show that they have never been in the majority.

Look up in the sky this Sunday to see if you catch an image of the full moon that will be both a "sturgeon moon" and "blue moon." 
 

The moon will officially become full at 8:02 a.m. ET Sunday, but it will still appear plenty large throughout Saturday as well as Sunday nights. Just look toward the southeast sky after sunset to catch a glimpse of the sturgeon moon rising,

It was going to be a new beginning with relative normalcy. However, it turned into a politicized, anxiety-provoking experience.

Breakthrough infections. Increased transmission. New mask recommendations and mandates. The #Delta variant is fueling #COVID-19 cases across the world and raising questions about what this all means for the course of the pandemic. It was first detected in India in March, and it now accounts for more than 93 percent of sequenced coronavirus cases in the USA.

Having kids ambling all over the place can get dangerous when you have many things happening and can’t keep an eye on them.

A young mind thrives on playtime and more often than not your child is most likely to find formal lessons boring and for some, even daunting. So when it comes to more difficult topics like mathematics, they can get reluctant or fussy when trying to teach your children.

Therefore, instead of turning your kids against math, try making it more fun. All you’ve got to do is hack is a staircase, some cellophane tape, markers, and colored paper!

Deconstructing Semantics

Submitted by ub on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 08:10

Whenever semantics comes up, an initial response could be what do you mean by that, or are you trying to be mean? News or Views?

Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, significant is the study of meaning, reference, or truth. The term can be used to refer to philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.

Semantics can mean quite different things in different contexts; fields concerned with semantics are as diverse as psychology, law, lexicography, and logic. Pragmatics is an equally wide-ranging term, with applications in politics.
