Some strategies to do this include: Listen More Than Talk If educators talk to…

Be present is at the top of my list. When I am present to students, I hear them, they find their voice, I act on what they say, etc. I learn about my students.

Physicists who created 'pure nothingness' say they detected something astonishing inside of it | Fiona MacDonald | BizInsider.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

According to quantum mechanics, a vacuum isn't empty at all. It's actually filled with quantum energy and particles that blink in and out of existence for a fleeting moment — strange signals that are known as quantum fluctuations.

For decades, there had only ever been indirect evidence of these fluctuations, but back in 2015, researchers claimed to have detected the theoretical fluctuations directly. And now the same team says they've gone a step further, having manipulated the vacuum itself, and detecting the changes in these strange signals in the void.

Mistakes are an opportunity to explore.
Trisha Ahrent Beamish's curator insight, August 6, 6:37 PM

I scooped this because locally we need to recognize that students and teachers all make mistakes and that is how we learn.  I think sometimes, state and local leaders forget or don't know the area they are making decisions on and that mistakes are okay and actually create a great amount of learning.

Editor’s note: This article marks the first in an occasional series by the 2017 summer interns on the Watson Data Platform developer advocacy team, depicting projects they developed using Bluemix data services, Watson APIs, the IBM Data Science Experience, and more.

Some people have a way with words. Others have a way with code. If you’re using my Poem Generator project, you don’t necessarily need either. The application creates poems based on user input. Using the Watson Tone Analyzer service, the user’s feelings are scored on a scale of 0 to 1. The Poem Generator then uses these feelings to craft a poem.

I. From Silk Robes to Hairshirts

When Jerome, the Catholic priest and scholar, arrived in Rome in the middle of the fourth century, he discovered a circle of noblewomen living in elaborate homes on the Aventine Hill who were nothing like their neighbors.

They’d given up their silk clothes and pearl earrings, the hairstyles and rouge and musk, even bathing, as signs of vanity, and were now wearing coarse robes made of goat’s hair. They stayed almost entirely in their houses, fasting and praying, discussing Scripture; in secret, they might visit a nearby basilica or martyr’s tomb. They never allowed themselves to rest on couches or cushions of any kind, and at night they slept on thin mats on the floor—though they hardly slept, spending those hours, instead, crying and praying. Most importantly, these women—some of them widows, some only recently of marrying age, all converts to Christianity—had each taken a vow of chastity.

Their ringleader was Marcella, a famous beauty, now a widow, who lived with her mother. No one was sure where she’d gotten the idea for this improvised monastic network, but when her husband died only months after her marriage, Marcella embraced a life that few of her class would ever understand.

Many of the female leaders of Christianity—in the Catholic Church in particular, with its 1.25 billion followers around the world—are barred from being fully ordained and are closely overseen by men. But this was not always the case. Scores of early Christian women—like Marcella, the desert-dwelling Susan, or the scholars Melania and Paula—embraced radical lives, helping the young religion fan out across the Roman Empire and beyond.
