“Watching the parade of nations at the opening ceremony there were some nations with boring uniforms, but the American ones were ugly. I liked the Ukranian uniforms (a print) and the Russian ones.
No offense to anyone who shops at Kohl's, but they looked like that's where they came from.”

“If I read the article correctly they couldn't find a zoo in their network that would take the animal. That particular zoo doesn't "own" the animal, it belongs to an association of zoos who all maintain certain standards and conditions. They weren't a liberty to send the animal to a non-member zoo. It does seem hard-hearted but that's the way they operate.”

40-something Lib on Feb 9, 2014 at 14:21:32

“If they really wanted to save the giraffe, no amount of rules and procedures would've stopped them from doing what would've been necessary.

They made a choice to let the animal be killed.”

“I don't know what the set-up in Kentucky is. McConnell is a Senator and they are elected statewide. I suppose it could be that a Senator would have to win/lose each district or they could have a direct vote. Voters shouldn't zone out on elections -- they do matter.”

“Let's hope all those people in Kentucky who're making the effort to enroll in the ACA will also make an effort and show up at the polls on election day. Mitch has been elected over and over again because the people he's happy to cut off don't vote.”

StevenGregory on Dec 5, 2013 at 22:23:12

“Gerrymandering is why McConnell and most House Republicans still have seats: in the last election, there were more votes for Democrats, but manipulating districts has kept these coots in Congress. Now 23 states have new rules regarding redistricting: they must be drawn by a bipartisan committee and in some states it goes a step further: the new districts must be agreed upon unanimously.”

“I'm saying that I think it would be better to lower the graduation standard -pass Algebra II- and have schools focus on teaching more common place math. I feel like they hurry kids through the basics so they can get to Algebra II. I'd like them to spend more time on the basics.”

“Yes and a kid who is aiming for a job with a wage like that will make the effort to learn the things they have to learn.
My kid finished nursing school. He wasn't the greatest student in high school. When he decided to be a nurse he got through chemistry/biology/math. The prospect of a good paying job danced in his head while he studied for those things. All the kids in the program motivated themselves through what I considered to be hard courses with visions of that job.
Some kids will excel without that kind of vision, other kids need a reward to do the work. That's not going to change. If a kid needs to do that then they will. However, I think it's a waste of resources to force every kid into those classes because many aren't interested.”

grandmablue on Nov 23, 2013 at 09:49:33

“Ginger, I agree completely. Back when we had vocational ed in the schools, kids tended to stay in school and graduate because they could see that what they were learning was important for their futures.

For many people, to be willing to dig in and work at a subject that might be hard for them, it's necessary to know how important learning that subject is to your future.

The last thing we want to do is force kids to drop out without graduating simply because of Algebra II.”

“This seems counter-intuitive, but I think it might result in kids with better math skills.

In an effort to meet high standards like this schools push kids through the lower courses and water down the passing requirements. Coursework is a mile wide and an inch deep in an effort to push them through to higher level courses.

How many times have I gone to a store and found that the cashier can't make change? Poor math skills, they have no concept of numbers, multiplication, heck - even counting. If the register doesn't tell them what to give back they're lost.

Quit pushing kids into higher level course and step back. Make sure they can add, subtract, multiple and divide. Those are the things they need to know, not how to manipulate equations to get a value of "X."

College-bound kids will still take Algebra II. If everybody else graduates with the ability to do basic functions society will come out ahead.”

grandmablue on Nov 23, 2013 at 09:36:27

“I agree with you 100%. I also suspect that some kids are kept from graduating by not being able to pass Algebra II. Let's make sure they know the basic math skills and let them go on to trade school or whatever future they plan for themselves, but don't start them out in life by keeping them from graduating and labeling them a failure to start out with.”

“There are more than a few towns in small-town America where the hospital is a larger employer. If the states don't take the Medicaid expansion hospitals are going to get squeezed with Federal payments for uncovered care diminishing.
Not only is the Governor doing something that will help his people get medical care, he's helping big employers stay afloat.”

“A trial with the women would be very sensational, the prosecutor could end up making it seem like they may have consented to some of the awful things he forced them to do. If helping the women and the daughter move on with their lives would be better accomplished by locking him up and throwing away the key, as opposed to a circus death-penalty trial, then we should accept it.”
