K12’s Science Curriculum: A Step

Ahead of Traditional Education

You have probably heard
that the International Astronomers Union recently voted to change
Pluto’s status as a planet. This also changes lessons about our solar
system — the old textbooks are now wrong!

jumped into action to make sure our students have the most up-to-date

grades to reflect Pluto’s new status as a “dwarf planet.” We’re proud
to be one of the first education companies to make the change! Read
more about the changes to our science program here.

Daaaa-aaad! What’s for Dinner?

Filed under: Domesticity — Allan @ 17:00:04

I like cooking for a family the size of ours, particularly when everyone can get on the same page and decide what they want for whatever meal I happen to be concocting at the time. There are, of course, certain times when it’s a drudge; either because it seems like it’s not appreciated by certain wee-ones, or some grouping (clumping, really) of the wee-ones gets the idea that I’m supposed to be wearing a short-order cook’s hat and ringing a bell… (more…)

Such perpetrators–indeed, Bin Laden, himself–are the most cowardly among the lowest of cowards. (more…)
