The majority of people use dust sheets to protect their flooring and furniture when decorating their home. Although this can be an effective way of protecting surfaces from dust and paint splashes, the use of sheets whilst decorating can be extremely unsafe and you or your decorator could easily slip and fall causing a serious …

Thank You So Much For This Great Item – Finance Manager Software Critique

January 10, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Finance

Also, it lets you build up money for certain things like insurance. I have been working with this program for a few weeks. One of the reviewers mentioned the inability to record check numbers. As to that, each transaction has a memo field where you can enter whatever it is that you like, but it seems to me that perhaps that reviewer was one of those that did not know the purpose of this software prior to purchasing.

Superb Product Has Not Changed – Top Antivirus Software Review

January 3, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Computers

In addition, the tech gave me a 30-day extension on my current license year ‘just because’. I previously had Norton 360 and I find Internet Security to be a little less intrusive. No problems with installation. Also, the Insight protection and the flagging of questionable sites on a Google search has helped me avoid headaches (after learning what ignoring those warnings can lead to). And now Symantec is posting its daily list of 100 most troublesome sites.

Good For The Money – Vermont Real Estate Book Review

January 2, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Home & Family

He includes literally hundreds of websites and even provides his email address to provide help to those who need it. The book covers all the bases, however, it didn’t leave me motivated. I just closed on a pre-foreclosure deal and found what the author stated to be true. I highly recommend this book to others.

Outstanding Product – Quiet Air Conditioner Review

January 2, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Home & Family

I also was expecting to use it in my car which does not have A/C and on trips like going to Disney. But sadly in a room with the inside temperature of around 77F-78F this device does not cool very much. All in all, this is a good product if you need something that keeps you cool! I’m getting to age where I just can’t bear summer and I NEED a personal fan.

Fantastic Product – Public Education Statistics Book Critique

January 1, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Home & Family

She is not afraid to face the facts, the evidence, and the scientific based research studies and make a complete turn-about on the ideas in which she once firmly believed. In her last chapter, Lessons Learned, she states that, “The fundamentals of good education are to be found in the classroom, the home, the community, and the culture.”

I Loved This Fan So Much I Purchased Four – Pink Netbook Review

January 1, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Computers

I don’t leave home without it! I wanted something to carry while I was touring on the Motorcycle. But, that’s more a problem with the Windows 7 Starter OS, than it is with the hardware. I received this laptop around a week ago and I’m in love with it! Especially since “cloud” computing and Web based applications are more prominent now. I completely wipe the netbook and install Ubuntu Linux (Netbook Remix Edition). Some types push the SD card into a spring and lock. This one just pushes into place with no lock and no click. I was prepared to be underwhelmed, but am pleasantly surprised. I was having a Goldilocks moment – my laptop (also a Toshiba and a great machine) is too big to carry around town or on low/no-work travel, and my Android phone, while it does everything but wash the dishes, is a bit small.

Wonderful Value – Free Public Education Book Critique

January 1, 2012 | Author: | Posted in Home & Family

But I think the evidence is that testing can come much closer than Diane Ravitch admits. From my point of view this is a straw man. At-risk students and their parents seldom apply for the lotteries to enter these schools – at least not in the same numbers as more highly-motivated students. The majority of charter schools also house much fewer English language learners and special education students, two notorious drags on testing scores. With few carrots and huge sticks, she correctly asserts that testing has narrowed curriculum and made school a mind-numbing calendar of test prep for reading and math. Science, social studies, the arts and physical education have been relegated to past in some schools – those where children need the most help and getting the least. I am a former high school teacher and parent of two public elementary schoolers, so I am not an objective observer of American education, but who really is? As Ravich points out, education in America if not everywhere is critical to us all for our economy and democracy and culture – we are all stakeholders. I disagree with several of Dr Ravitch’s points, and think she somewhat glosses over key nuances within certain topics (the success of KIPP, Green Dot and other charter networks, how they’ve tried to address issues of creaming, the massive systemic reform that’s underway in New Orleans). As such, the arguments within her book should be taken for what they are – the singular world view of an individual, who while thoughtful, experienced, and well-informed about her topic, is also prone to the biases and whims we all are. While their focus, which Ravitch unrelentingly documents, has been on operational and organizational reforms (from choice and charters to testing and merit pay) they’ve been blind to what really determines whether students are learning or not: the content of what they are being taught. “It’s the Curriculum, Stupid” could be another name for this mandatory book.
