    Read the following article. It’s “inconclusive” at best! But it attempts to answer the question as to whether a Toyota Tundra could really pull the space shuttle through the streets of Southern California! After you read it, you might be a bit skeptical, because it’s likely the rig the shuttle was on was powered in some way. Here’s the point, […]

    We ran across the question: “what really is NEW math?” Got us to thinking about it. It seems the best way to describe it is in comparison mode. Old math was memorization. New math is… ‘problem solving’? If you’ve ever looked at the Lifetime Library, you can see it was designed to help learners understand the concepts of math, reading, […]

    We found this article. It’s pretty basic. But it points out the many benefits of students participating in “programs” – sports, music, dance, etc. We often hear the call for saving a school’s budget by simply dropping the football, hockey, basketball, baseball and track programs. You’ve maybe thought that yourself. Yet, if this simple article holds any merit, you’ll see […]

    An interesting video from a few years ago. (Evident when the speaker talks about energy independence by 2015). The point of this isn’t to sway anyone’s belief about whether we will run out of fossil fuels soon – or never. To us, there’s something you can drive back to the “learning process” (once you reach the end). And that’s: There’s […]

    Curiosity is an interesting subject. We may find more articles and videos for you to view in the coming days and weeks. In the world of business, we know that people with great curiosity often become problem solvers. Or they foster discussion that leads a group to consider “alternatives and possibilities”. We also know that careers thrive for people with […]
