Laptop Grab and Runs are becoming TOO common...




Laptop thieves descend upon wireless cafes / Grab-and-run robbers find pricey computers easy to resell

Life is hard enough as is. It seems that a person can't even work while on a java break.

General Motors GMability Education Site

General Motors GMability Education Site

Thought I'd share this email with you:

"Hi,

We're contacting homeschool/teacher/education bloggers to let them know about General Motors' GMAbility web site. GM has a section devoted to education, here:

http://www.gm.com/company/gmability/edu_k-12/

The site has news on science, technology and the environment, fun, educational games, and lesson plans developed in conjunction with Weekly Reader. We hoped you might take a look at the site and share it with your readers. The lesson plans can be found here:

http://www.gm.com/company/gmability/edu_k-12/teachers/index.html

Here, for example, is a lesson plan Weekly Reader created for grades K-1 for Earth Day:

Other Earth Day lessons can be found here:

Student Holocaust Activities

Holocaust Activities

These activities have been developed for teachers to use as a guide.
Our intent is to give teachers a framework to follow for use in a
Holocaust unit of study. The philosophy behind these activities is
based on constructivist pedagogy, brain-based learning and the
awareness of the theory of multiple intelligences. We hope teachers
will use them and build on them to fit the needs of students, taking
into account their age, maturity, and ability levels. We strongly urge
teachers to read and reread the Guidelines for Teaching the Holocaust
published by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum before
designing activities or using the ones we offer in A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust.
The suggestions and cautions the Holocaust Museum offers are important
and invaluable in delivering Holocaust instruction. The sensitivity of
the subject matter requires careful consideration when designing
curriculum and guiding students in presentations and research.

What’s the 411? This one’s free

Consumer Action, a Boston advertising company is trying to make it big by giving
away a service that the phone companies make a fortune providing.
1-800-FREE411 offers free directory assistance, paying for the service
by running a 10-second advertisement before giving the phone number the
caller requested.


The service is a product of Jingle Networks, a startup formed by a group of advertising industry veterans.
