“New Math” didn’t work in the 1970s when they lost a block of kids who never got the basics so never got past Arithmetic into Mathematics and it won’t work in 2015, even renamed “common core”.
I was one of those kids in the 70s. Funny thing, once I started homeschooling and had to work with Saxon Math who teaches the “Old School” way, I now understand.
Me, too! But it was Math U See that was the great break through.

Captain.Dakkar, not quite. Catholics are required to accept the dogma. Not the doctrine.
The Catholic Church has had bad Popes before. One only has to accept what he says when he follows the exact formula and sits in the Chair of Peter.

“The Wolf Pack” is sponsored by the network and all the do is train. They showed a film of the long haired guy and his squeeze. They live in a van and he admitted that the do nothing but climb rocks.
The original Ninja warrior in Japan was simply a bunch of guys who had real jobs and trained on the side. This was impressive, but not as impressive as the show in Japan.
He also works as a busboy. One of them in the group is a doctor.

Those who still believe “Calorie in/Calorie out” are Science deniers.
The “food pyramid” and “Low Fat/high carb” started many people on the road to obesity and Alzheimer’s Disease (which is now being called Type 4 diabetes). It’s not lazy when one is being told to avoid that which satisfies one’s hunger (fat) and load up on that which becomes sugar in your body (simple carbs)
Your body forms fat cells to store energy. They empty and you lose weight, but your body is fighting to refill them all the time. 100 years ago, you could still have a famine in this country. Evolution is not that quick. Ever wonder why five years after Bariatric surgery, most people are big again, eventhough it is impossible for them to take in more calories?
It’s because nature makes one’s body fight to retain fat for lean times. We just don’t have lean times.

WayTruthLife777, neither your wife’s ectopic pregnancy nor her molar pregnancy would go to term. Neither is a case for “life of the mother” because there was no life of the fetus to consider. I’m sorry to say that your wife did not have a viable pregnancy in either case.

I had Pre-eclampsia at 20 weeks. My daughter is now 17.
At 20 weeks a baby may be viable or not. C-Section and a Neo Natal unit is the answer. Not shoving scissors in the skull of the baby and sucking our her brains.

Why can’t a rape or incest victim give the baby to a person who doesn’t really care about how that baby was conceived? Why a death sentence for the innocent life? Two wrongs don’t make a right and we shouldn’t have to pay for the sins of our father.

I’m so sorry about your loss and what you had to go through with your baby, TexKat.
Losing a child is always hard and a family should never go through it.
However, Please understand that there was no option in your situation. Tubal pregnancies never go to term. There was no decision to to keep your child or abort. Your baby could not be taken to term because he/she could not grow inside your fallopian tube. All tubal pregnancies end the same.
What they are talking about here is killing a baby who has the potential to grow to viability. Your little one simply couldn’t. You are correct that if they had left the baby inside you, you would have died, but there was no chance for the baby to go to term either way. God bless you and give you peace.

It’s what was socially acceptable then which is not now.
My Irish father (born 1929) grew up in a mixed neighborhood of Cleveland. He and his black friends would call each other racial names without batting an eye. My Polish mom said that on Sundays the only shop open was a Jewish bakery. Everyone shopped there for Sunday breakfast and everyone called the owner “Jew”.
The man called himself “The Jew”. Today that would be called “casual anti-semitism”.
I had a buddy named Smith - naturally, everyone he allowed to do so called him "Smitty". Smitty was a black Marine who had earned THE Medal in Vietnam and though I outranked him, I also respected hell out of him.
Well, Smitty and I had a little routine we'd go through when things got bad or boring - whenever a bit of laughter would help "pick up" the morale in the Platoon. Smitty would go find a spot to goof off, knowing what would come next. I'd wander along and see Smitty screwing-off and in my best Georgia accent, say, "G-dammit, Smith if you don't get off your lazy black ass and get back to work, you're going on report!" (I rarely put ANYONE "On Report" during my entire career) Smitty would jump to his feet and go into his routine of , "I's sorry, Massah! I's sorry ! Don' beat me, Massah; I be gettin' mah lazy black ass back ta work, rat now, Massah ! You be wrappin' yo lilly-white d##kskinners 'round a shovel too, Massah ? Sho make dis s##t go fastah !"
Everybody'd get a laugh, take a short break to light a smoke or take a drink of water, then we'd all go back to digging. Half the men in my Platoon were black and there was never a problem about any of that, because they took it as I meant it...Until a black Lieutenant wandered by and heard it. He put me up on Charges.
On the appointed day, I went before the Colonel, he read the charges and asked what I had to say about it. I asked if he had spoken to the black Marines in my Platoon and he said that they would all be giving verbal statements at that hearing. Okay by me, as I knew where I stood with my men.
What neither the Colonel or I knew was that the men in my Platoon had rounded-up almost every black, Hispanic, Oriental, Hawaiian, Pole, Russian and Czech (This was the ’60′s and any Eastern European took a LOT of flak) in the Battalion to give statements on my behalf. Not one of those men spoke against me. A couple told the Colonel that some of the things I said to them could get me hurt if I said them to a stranger, but nobody who knew me would think me racist.
So, the charges were dropped, I got a lecture about curbing my mouth – What we would come to call “Political Correctness” and we all went back to the business of fighting a war.
If I tried that “Massah/Slave” routine today, I’d probably wind-up in front of a firing squad.

We loved it. We’ll see it again. We were very disappointed in Age of Ultron and loved Winter Soldier.
"... and my favorite Crystal Gale T-shirt got ruined!"
Cougar? If she's hott enough she may indeed otherwise occupy and distract a potential thief...I like the way you think. I was gonna compliment ya on thinking "outta the box" but that phrase would totally ruin the double entendre "cougar" and "box."

I would agree with you if there weren’t people who already lost their businesses because of militant gay activists.
Here’s one for you, why would ANYONE want a cake, a photograph or flowers from someone who doesn’t agree with their lifestyle? Why would anyone choose a straight artist (cakes, photos, flowers) when gay businesses exist and are so good at what they do.
Leave the Christians alone and we can talk, because you know who the activist don’t go to? The Muslims. And let me tell you, from a person who lives in MI, Muslim wedding cakes are yummy!
...so the actions of some "militant gay activists" should prohibit gay people from getting married?
The business owners who had "Whites Only" signs probably felt the same way.
First off, it is a lifestyle, it's their life. Second, its not disagreeing, it's discrimination.
Here's the thing, sta; pretend that you're gay for a moment. Now, you and your gay love want to be married because you love each other and want to commit to spending your lives together. You live in a small town and you go to the only decent bakery in town to order your wedding cake and you're turned away because the owner of the bakery doesn't want to bake you a cake. Now you're faced with the prospect of finding a bakery maybe a town over.. or two towns... who knows? Maybe you have to go 50 miles to find a 'gay friendly' bakery. Maybe there are two bakeries, and the expensive one is the one that is 'gay friendly' and you're on a tight budget. See why that specific discrimination is bad for the gay person? Now, let's pretend instead that you're the bakery owner. The gay person comes to your shop and wants a cake, but you're a devout Christian and you have honest, strongly held opinions about gayness in general. Fair enough. But the law says that you can't discriminate against this gay couple, so you have to bake them a cake. Does your baking that cake harm you in any way at all? No. It just means you've baked another cake for another customer, who perhaps you find distasteful. I don't know if you've worked in a service industry, but trust me when I say this: you sell things to distasteful people all the time. It wouldn't be new. That's why you can't say 'just leave the Christians alone and don't make us sell you cakes'. It's not you that is being hurt.
