Stairway To Math Heaven

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.

Do folks say you're easily distracted, disorganized? If so, you are consistently tardy. There are many reasons why people are late. Some are like the absent-minded professor: They are misplacing glasses and car keys getting lost or completely forgetting there is an appointment.

One after one, students walk into the classroom. It’s 9:27A on a Monday. The door closes at 9:30A sharp.  One minute later a student walks up to the door and knocks, “Should I let her in?” he asks. “You guys can let her in if you want.” Everyone thinks he’s kidding, but nobody really knows.

Public Service Announcements

What did you wake up thinking about this morning? Your busy day? Plans for this weekend? Your mother’s birthday gift? Whatever it was, it almost assuredly wasn’t #COVID the global pandemic 😷 Corona virus, the promised immunizations, or second-hand smoke. And however important we think these subjects are, no one outside of public health makes them a priority.

This is the reason why FCC rules required that media organizations provide the public information available to the public.
