Jeannie Lindsey : I have just read an article published by the Washington (AP) by Jennifer C Kerr. She is saying what I and other physical educators have been saying for years but have not been able to sell the idea to those in the Department of Education...those in the curriculum construction. The Report is entitled "Nation's Kids need to get more physical activity; Reading, writing, arithmetic and PE. To have a good education is absolutely necessary however, it is useless to develop our youth mentally if they do not grow to have a strong body in which to help them use their talent.
I remember physical education every day at Des Arc. Some of it was marching as if we were in the military; some of it was sports; some of it was calesthenics and some of it was very active free play. Thanks Mrs. Data Greer! 34 seconds ago - View -

TsychoSis SDrc : US Boy Scouts to allow gay youths, not leaders Well, one small step...many more to go. And they're right, we will usher "god" out the door AND open BSA up to gay AND transexual scouts AND scout leaders. Mark my words. :)
"WASHINGTON — The Boy Scouts of America agreed for the first time to allow openly gay youths to join the organization, but will maintain a ban on gay adult leaders.
It updated the BSA's "membership standards," seen as symbolizing traditional US values. But the measure reaffirmed existing rules for adult Scout leaders.
Interest groups were quick to react.
The vote "is a significant victory for gay youth across the nation and a clear indication that the Boy Scouts' ban on gay adult leaders will also inevitably end," said Rich Ferraro with the gay rights group GLAAD.
Tony Perkins with the conservative Family Research Council, however, vehemently disagreed, saying the delegates "succumbed to a concerted and manipulative effort by the national BSA leadership."
The current BSA leadership "will bend with the winds of popular culture, and the whims of liberal special interest groups. There is little doubt that God will soon be ushered out of scouting," he added." 1 minute ago - View -

Kelly & Cruz to Washington instead of hiring clones of you and your buddy from SC. Your constituents may be happy with all the bacon you send home to AZ, but Sen.

Susan Hewett Watts : Is Europe Giving Up on “Green” Energy? "The naive faith of policy makers that Europe’s main competitors would follow this shift from cheap fossil fuels to expensive green energy has gone up in smoke. In reality, most nations are completely unimpressed by Europe’s approach. Europe, the Washington Post recently warned, “has become a green-energy basket case. Instead of a model for the world to emulate, Europe has become a model of what not to do.” EU leaders are beginning to wake up to the enormity of the green energy fiasco. They will meet in Brussels for an energy summit on May 22 to discuss how to respond to the crisis. –Benny Peiser, Financial Post, 14 May 2013
Soaring German energy costs in the wake of the country’s transition to renewable energy have seen more and more firms thinking abut relocating their operations. German industry lobby associations on Wednesday sent a warning shot towards the government in Berlin, saying that rising energy costs in the country would drive away more and more German companies. –Deutsche Welle, 22 May 2013" 1 minute ago - View -
This is a better investment than throwing money at a Wall Street firm that doesnt need it. According to an industry survey, "the average bridge in our country is now 43 years old. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, of the 600,905 bridges across the country as of December 2008, 72,868 (12.1%) were categorized as structurally deficient and 89,024 (14.8%) were categorized as functionally obsolete." Fix the infrastructure and get people back to work. Jobs mean disposable income which means more jobs. No-brainer.
