Hi dancer, I have corrected a couple of typos for you.

"by rote learning" and "have infinite patience"

Computers in the classroom are simply audio visual teaching aids. It is far more effective to employ group learning and pairing with the buddy system, to deal with differentiation. At least that is what the teacher training course PGCE advocates.


i apologize for the dyslexia

each student is a mix of auditory, visual, and textural learning, for each child

this mix is different, to teach to a group is at best to teach to the low middle

of the group.

to use buddy's that are poorly matched is worse that no help at all.

with today's computers it is easy to customize the presentation to best support each child.

the teachers are still there to teach, the computers will simply take over the

most tedious portion of this task.

p.s. thanks for the correction.

and on the nuclear card, like with guns i expect those that hold then to act as

responsible adults those that can not demonstrate this need not apply.

if you check with the model rocketry people you will find that guidance systems are prohibited for private launches.

if you go to DuPont to pickup a ton of dynamite and some amfo you will need a Federal Explosives License.

and while it may not technically be illegal to build a nuke the fissile material is vary closely regulated.

i do not object to this and do not know anybody that would.

by route learning is hard on both student and teacher, but computers in this role

have infinite patients and can be geared to see patterns in the child's learning,

and individualize the material presentation to each child, freeing the teacher to

help children with the problems they still do not get.

if you tax something you expect to get less of it.

if you subsidize something you expect to get more of it.

this simple truth seems to have been lost.

poverty is suppose to be nasty so no one wants to stay there.

as to the disparity between haves and have not's was about 90 to 1 in 1930

between the least payed and most payed employee of a major company

now it is over 1500 to 1.

saying gun violence is a major problem belie's the fact that guns are used 100 times more often to prevent a crime rather than commit one.

and cars knives baseball bats as well as falls in the shower kill far more than guns.

and if you truly want to see how bad government can get disarm the us the last people to have a check on a tyrannical government.

while co2 may not be the cause of global warming it is still undeniable that it is happening.

the question is can we or should we do anything about it.

thankfully the tech. to decide this is near at hand.

weather changes that is it's nature. changing weather without knowing the

concupiscence's is foolish. and you are right Kyoto it about money for special

interest's not global warming.

undoubtedly world wide weather modification will happen and when it does i hope

that some means can be found to made it fair.

i have read a number of article's on this and from what i gather, if i had a nic go

bad and replaced it changing my mac number and my dynamically allocated ip address

changed as they sometimes do i would have been guilty of one of the charges in

this case this is how lousily the statute is worded.

ID, I ask what well regulated militia do you belong to? After all you proclaim to be a gun owner and 2nd amendment proponent!

=================================================================
As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.[13]

1) part one to first coma an ability to form a militia is necessary to keep a free state.

2) after first coma the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,

a militia being formed of armed citizens, the citizens right to keep and bear arms

shall not be infringed.

if you read the federalist papers it is clear that the founding fathers felt

that an unchecked government was the greatest fear.

as for personal income tax most people don't have income they have compensation

for their time and effort.

income used to be defined as profits derived from investments it took congress

to make compensation equivalent to income.




btw i make less then 1000 dollars a month and it would make things easier to have

a starlight up % to pay rather then trying to figure out what is or is not

deductible. if their is a deductible it should be set at the, poverty level,

and everyone should get it.

in all honesty no corporation has ever paid tax.

anything they are taxed upon they pass the cost to the consumer.

this is just how business works.

when i was younger i worked for a computer store.

this store install a 4 year learning program written by McGraw-Hill

in a junior high.

the slowest kid in the school went though the entire 4 years of material

in 9 months.

now these kids were allowed to do this program as much as they wanted

instead of the limited time a day that it was designed for.
