Several people have asked about where I got mine.  Well here it is.  Read the descriptions carefully - be aware that delivery times can fluctuate - they are coming from mainland China via Hong Kong Post.  But at $25 it's 1/2 or 1/3 of proprietary devices.

Things from Another World

About Us


After incorporating in 1979, Mike Richardson opened the first Things From Another World store--just 400 square feet--in Bend, Oregon on January 1, 1980. We were brought into this world with a $2,500-limit credit card and a dream: to sell a wide range of comics and offer excellent customer service to our customers. We were also born with another name, Pegasus Books, but decided Things From Another World was more our style in the '90s (we were considering a symbol, a la Prince, but we were talked out of it).

 

Over the last 30 years we have grown and expanded, now offering stores in Milwaukie, Portland, and Beaverton, Oregon, as well as our Universal Studios Citywalk location in Los Angeles, California--and, of course, the website you're browsing right now. Today, we're the third-largest comic book retailer in the nation, but our purpose remains the same: to have an outstanding selection of comic books, graphic novels, toys, statues, and other pop culture-related goodness, and to take special care of our customers.

Four Ways to Spot a Great Teacher

Four Ways to Spot a Great Teacher | A Random Collection of sites | Scoop.it
Parents should seek out educators who have outside intellectual lives, follow the data and ask terrific questions.


As students trundle back to the classroom, many parents will recognize my neighbors' frustration—and the anxiety that comes from trying to give your child the best possible education (especially if you can't afford to send them to private school). But in a landmark book this year, two sociologists, Angel L. Harris of Duke and Keith Robinson of the University of Texas at Austin, found that many things parents obsess over—checking homework nightly, volunteering at their kids' schools—have no measurable impact on student achievement.


Economists have discovered that teachers with high SAT scores or perfect college GPAs are generally no better for their students than teachers with less impressive credentials. But teachers with large vocabularies are better at their jobs because this trait is associated with being intelligent, well-read and curious.


Effective educators reject the idea that smarts are something that only some students have; they expect all children to perform at high levels, even those who are unruly, learning disabled or struggling with English.


According to the scholar John Hattie, when teachers focus lessons on concepts that are broader than those on multiple-choice tests, children's scores on higher-level assessments—like those that require writing—increase. How can you identify a high-quality question in your child's schoolwork? It tests for conceptual, not factual, understanding—not "When did the Great Depression occur?" but "What economic, social and political factors led to the Great Depression?"
