Best. Anniversary gift. EVAR! from The Bloggess.
The Little Professor amuses me with liveblogging an old religious novel.
Speaking of easily amused, this is, I am convinced, the funniest thing ever (lyrics NSFW):
I saw the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie in the theater (before I moved to Blighted Town) and when they played this opening, I laughed until I cried. I’m still laughing now, 5 years later..
Another viewpoint on online teaching technologies by cherish the scientist. Ultimately we think these are empirical questions about who benefits, if there’s a benefit, and how and when people benefit. We imagine that online ed can be great for systematic learning, and possibly puzzle-based learning (with aha moments) if given the right kind of gaming system. We also think that perhaps there are other critical thinking skills that it is not so good at (and are thus very leery of its use in graduate school). But how to measure those skills is also difficult.
Mutant SuperModel with things she’s learned from pf blogs that she wishes she hadn’t.
#2 has been playing chicken with the hospital all week (while her regular doctor is out of town) and hasn’t been up to linking to things. She will have a rant sometime after the baby actually comes on how dilation doesn’t necessarily mean anything and some women have long slow labors they can’t feel and should not go into the hospital until they have an actual real sign of labor, and how confirmation bias in doctors causes some of them not to realize this and so they end up doing a ton of interventions and end up giving unnecessary c-sections… or maybe she just had that rant.
