Mags: Madison's "married singles"

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 18:21:47 PDT
One of Madison’s strengths is identifying the social and relationship trends that affect middle-class, Gen X/Y Australian women and writing home about them (and coining clever new catch-phrases to describe them). This month, it’s the “together single” couple, a story that really resonates with me, being a recent-ish newlywed (almost a year!) and, by nature, fiercely independent and stubborn (not to mention a child of divorce – how does one know how to ‘do marriage’ without it being modeled to th

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 18:31:50 PDT
Lady G~'s daughter needs to interview a teacher for some coursework she's taking in education. She asked me for an interview, to which I am more than happy to respond. Here are my answers, dear one, and may they inspire you to teach as your heart sees fit. 1. How long have you been teaching? 24 years. 2. Why do you choose to be teacher?

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 18:50:48 PDT
You’ve just watched “Did You Know” or a keynote by David Warlick for the very first time. You feel your heart begin to race as panic sets in… you think: “My school is in no way prepared to help our students learn what they need for work and life in the this very different and constantly changing world… What should I do?!” Too often, the initial response is to look for money to buy more computers. Some educational leaders may say “Let’s make sure we have laptops in the hands of EVERY student!

The federal agency is predicting that gasoline demand will be down 0.4 percent this summer and 0.3 percent for the year. That may not sound like much, but it would be the first time since 1991 that there’s been a decline in annual

The notion of “friendship” has been transformed through social networking. The Washington Post has a good piece looking at how MySpace, Facebook, Bebo and others are forcing us to think afresh about the boundaries and intensities of these new online relationships.

These new electronic meshes are more than mere improvements over alumni magazines, holiday cards with pictur
