Not just Florida. Condos do not like use of landscape for gardening.

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, January 27, 2014 4:33 PM

Where you can and can not plant vegetables can become a major issue in communities that want to maintain their "reputations". While some gardeners plant crops where they can get the most sun and access to supplies, neighbors and neighborhoods, such as that in Miami Shores, do not always approve of planting in the front yard. This story focuses on a woman's need to garden for food and the shift into "turf-wars."

"Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. I found it so compelling I've dedicated this whole film fest to it. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it."

7 March 2014

Though I'm hesitant to endorse the belief that any book is capable of guaranteeing it WILL change YOUR life, though I would surely agree that any of these books "COULD change your life depending upon your receptiveness to it.

 

Nevertheless, I really like the information available under this slightly hyperbolic headline.

Directly to the right of the headline you'll find links to two downloadable pdf files that may well be worth downloading and sharing with your students. (My preference if for the first as it includes all 50 of the books being promoted and provides a delightful graphic that sorts those fifty titles into categories defining various reasons that students might find them particularly engaging.

 

Then, a thought about the value to we who teach....

 

How many of these titles have made it to the "required reading materials" in our classrooms?

 

How many of us have designed our curriculum in such a way as to make these titles available for independent reading credit in our classrooms?

 

Would it be fair to say that the "best book" for any individual student with an opportunity to read it for credit will never be the best book for an entire class to be required to read?

 

And an even more edgy question...

Would it be fair to say that any book that is a required book for credit will always be a really lousy book for individuals students in a class who just are not in a place where they are ready to be receptive to that book...yet? 

 

just a self-assigned meta-cognitive contemplation...

 

No real conclusions other than I would probably find some way to incorporate this list into at least a classroom discussion.

How was the AIDS epidemic reversed?

How was the AIDS epidemic reversed? | Library Media | Scoop.it

"The breakthrough came in 1996, when a new class of antiretroviral drug called protease inhibitors was launched. These were used in combination with two older drugs that worked in different ways. The combination meant that evolving resistance required the simultaneous appearance of several beneficial (from the virus’s point of view) mutations—which is improbable.  With a viable treatment available, political action became more realistic. AIDS had been a “political” disease from the beginning, because a lot of the early victims were middle-class gay Americans, a group already politically active. Activists were split between those who favoured treating people already infected and those who wanted to stop new infections. The latter were more concerned to preach the message of safe sex and make condoms widely available, so that people could practise what was preached. Gradually, however, activists on both sides realised that the drugs, by almost abolishing the virus from a sufferer’s body, also render him unlikely to pass it on. They are, in other words, a dual-use technology."

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, December 15, 2014 3:22 PM

As the article states, the AIDS virus was not known to the science community during the diseases' first years of emergance, but thanks to science, research was put on the forefront to stop AIDS. Unfortunately, the Disease is still incurable, but as the author says, some cases of the virus disappearing from the sufferers' body, it gives hope that a cure may be found someday. The AIDs virus will always be a hot topic and is referred to as the "Political" disease and must pose a threat to rich people in order for the pharmaceutical companies to develop cures.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 17, 2014 12:52 AM

This article discusses the recent treatments and their success in treating AIDs. For many years AIDs spread rapidly across Africa and even today it still spreads, luckily two things have begun to slow down it's advance. Both the increase in the use of contraception such as condoms which protect against AIDs as well as the production of antibiotics  made available to many at risk of AIDs. This shows that with decent government backing it is possible to stem outbreaks such as this.

Norka McAlister's curator insight, March 28, 2015 3:13 PM

In the late 1990s, it is estimated that 15 million of people had died because of AIDS in Africa. As all social classes were  affected by the virus, even political figures, many international organizations and private businesses were integrated into research treatment. However, the main obstacle in combating this disease is that there is not enough money to fund the necessary treatment for people in many African countries. Although, many organizations have embarked on campaigns regarding how to prevent this dreadful disease from spreading further and these efforts have proved successful in the past decade.

28 February 2014

I took an Evelyn Woods speed reading course some 40 years ago. I don't know if it was a result of my having inherited Strabismus (the fancy word for being cross-eyed) or not. but it sort of worked, for awhile anyway.

 

Though it could have been what I've come to know as symptoms associated with ADHD. I've always had a "wandering mind" which  in those days was generally wrapped in the indefensible "Jerome has trouble paying attention."

 

Ironically, I've come to the realization that although I always accepted the "wrongness" of my alternate attentiveness, it was and continues to be more of a "hyper attentiveness." A teacher might say something in passing that caught my attention in such a way that I'd lock onto the comment and automatically start thinking about it and rolling the idea around in my mind sort of like a little kid intrigued by a rolly polly bug. Time would "stop" as I simply tinkered with whatever it was that I had found intriguing and then where ever it was that that intrigue took me. 

 

And then, usually, moments or minutes later in the back of my consciousness a sort of "distant echoey sound" snapped me out of that pleasant mental meandering.

 

"Jerome! are you paying attention!" and I'd shake my head In a fashion very similar to the way kids try to shake the sleepy bugs out of their minds upon first awakening from a pleasant dream and realize that for however long the contemplation had been, it had been wrapped in a body that appeared to be sitting in some sort of glazed posture appearing to be staring out of the window.instead of "sitting up straight and concentrating on what the teacher was saying as I should have been."

 

I was a reader early on. My parents attempted to be diligent about what I wasn't allowed to read (aka comic books). it wasn't confrontational. I accepted their judgment, but did enjoy reading my friends' comic books when the chance arose. 

 

I was a "good"  reader, but a slow reader. The family had driven the 20 mile round trip to the library  once or twice a week  for as long as I could remember. I'd come home with as many as six or seven chapter books and be eager to decide which one I'd start first. Yet I was a slow reader, not hesitant; not reluctant, not struggling. Just slow as in eating a delicious meal slowly to postpone the inevitability of sooner or later reaching the last bite of a good meal or a delicious story.

 

The only pacing guide in my personal reading was the "DUE DATE" card the library placed in checked out books. But even that did not force me to read fast as I was perfectly aware of the fact that any book I'd checked out but not gotten around to reading could simply be re-checked out on our next trip to the library. 

 

Eventually the pressure at school to "get through" the reading assignment, engaging or not, led me to the discovery of skimming, and in history, now a favorite subject but not so much then, to discovering that reading the bold text and first sentence following the bold text was generally sufficient to be able to appear as though I'd read the assignment during the next day's class discussion.

 

And, though I never shared it with friends, I knew this was "cheating" so I would often make the attempt to "really do the reading." And, I kept it a secret that I would often find myself in the middle of a paragraph realizing that though I had actually read every page to that point, that I would "wake up" in much the same fashion as I had when a teacher snapped me out of my "staring out the window" days in earlier grades, and I'd realize that I had read, but in some bizarre way also not paid any attention to what I was reading. I'd re-read the paragraph and wonder what it was about and find myself flipping backwards in pages looking for the last thing I remembered having read. Sometimes it was several pages. 

 

It wasn't until much later that I discovered that this is not an uncommon phenomenon among my students.

 

You may have suspected for awhile, that this blog itself seems to only have a distant connection to the scooped article. But, that's sort of how it has always been. Reading "A" does not always lead to reading "B" then "C" and so on. Reading "A" often leads to discovering some sort of connection in an interest in thinking about "B" and "infinity" and "$%$#^"  and a "vacation memory." 

 

So, back to the article. we've all contemplated the distinctions between paper-based reading and digital reading. My position has been to suggest that this is a false issue in many ways and the tug-o-war between the opposing proponents can be much more harmful than helpful. 

 

As I read this article, being fairly-pro technology, my mind began meandering around the "other" reading issues.

 

Would this be good for getting through important reading when time is short and important reading is much and a must?

 

Would this be good for keeping up with pacing guides accepted as being by default a good thing whether or not they also have a down side?

 

Would this be good when broad attentiveness to important and trivial issues and trends of the day "require" that we live faster even if that causes us to read less deeply? 

 

Would this allow us to attend to more (as in quantity) important issues than we might have been able to attend to in the past?

 

And, what about the "slow movement" ( see this TED Talk: http://www.ted.com/talks/carl_honore_praises_slowness.html: and this website: http://www.slowmovement.com that has become a counter movement to today's faster and faster "self=imposed pacing guide requirements that we often feel necessary for a successful life?

 

There is without a (current) doubt,  a need to get more done and to clear one's obligation plate more efficiently. We can not expect to live successfully in the 21st century without getting more accomplished more often on more fronts.

 

Yet there is also a need to allow more time to discover, to appreciate, to marinate in contemplation and consideration. 

 

So I'm neither condemning nor endorsing the technological "advance" offered by this article.

 

But, I'd like to turn this comment into a rhetorical or real request.

 

I have to assume that the length of this comment probably triggered at least a few immediate "Interesting maybe, but I don't have time to read this comment" abandonments; some immediate; others somewhere into the comments.

 

So I'm placing this request at the end of the article as a data/opinion collection effort.

 

If you choose to accept the requests, please leave a comment regarding...

 

REQUEST ONE: What benefits and drawbacks might there be in using this technology in education, particularly in the area of effective efforts to meet "the standards"?

 

REQUEST TWO: Try to go out of your way, now or very soon to watch the TED Talk linked to above.It is nineteen minutes long, but well worth watching.

 

By the way, if you haven't discovered this yet. TED Talks not only can show the transcript (think Informational Reading!) but while reading the transcript, clicking on any phrase automatically jumps to that point in the video above.

 

Now, I'll probably get back to the ton of work I was supposed to get done today because I didn't get it done yesterday, knowing full well that I'll probably be checking the Facebook, Scoop-it, Twitter, and LinkedIn sites where links to this post have been published  every 5 minutes or so just to see if there are any comments!
